You don't need a 'cheater bar' on your 3/8-in. drive ratchet, just pick up your 1/2-in. drive ratchet and be done with it! This is a torque monster and will break just about anything loose from lug nuts to alternator or head bolts!
I could never get by without this gem in my arsenal!
At 18 inches in length, this breaker bar is longer than the average half-inch breaker bar and provides excellent leverage. The extra length is a big advantage when loosening lug nuts, for example, that have been torqued too tightly by a mechanic.
I store one of these with a 6-point socket in each of three car trunks for use as a wheel lug wrench. I have also utilized them with 1/2" drive 6-point sockets for other tough tasks, such as removing engine head bolts.. The 1/2" x 18" breaker bar is a very good value, high utility tool. For greater leverage, I recommend a 1/2" x 24" or 30" breaker bar for bolts or nuts torqued to greater than 150 lbs-ft.
All I have to say is excellent it did the job and all my other bars snapped at the nipple was very angry went to sear and picked up this bad *** breaker bar and walla bolts out 8) very strong breaker bar

for just a couple dollars more you can get craftsman from sears instead of Pittsburgh from **************. I have put some serious stress on this and its held up where as my buddy bought one from HF where chome chipped off the first week and it broke under the strain. I always buy craftsmen when I can :)

Works exactly as intended. The simplicity is somethign that is beginning to lack in hand tools. In todays world where Craftsman is trying to make more and more universal tools, it is refreshing to see some 'classic' designs that just work... and are uncomplicated. Too often these more complicated universal designs add bulk and movement that makes tools harder to use. Appreciate Craftsman leaving their breaker-bars alone.

This flex bar known to mechanics as breaker bars is solid and heavy duty enough to last and perform every time I use it. Also knowing that if anything did go wrong with the tool. It is backed by a replacement guarantee by Sears. The only concern by mechanics is that Craftsman tools are starting to be made in China. Same guarantee and we are being told same quality. But only time will tell.
