With a built-in quick release button and a thumb controlled directional switch, this 1/2 in. flex head teardrop ratchet swaps sizes and rotational directions fast. And built to last, it’s backed by the power of Craftsman’s Forever Guarantee so you can count on this torquey tool for a lifetime of hardworking service. Stock your shop with a flexible tool designed to deliver.

  • 1/2 in. flex head teardrop ratchet features a tough, torque ready build
  • One handed reverse button means you stay in contact with fasteners
  • 10 degree ratcheting arc spins fasteners with little wiggle
  • Teardrop shape allows better access in tight spots

I bought this on sale and wasn't sure that I needed it; I was wrong!  I actually used it as a breaker bar and it worked beautifully!  I has some Shop Your Way points that were about to expire, so I purchased it.  Very glad I did.  I wouold recomment this product.

No longer made in USA
One of my favorite ratchets in my toolbox had it for years, then I go buy one for work and it is made in china now and not USA, craftsman/sears is getting ridiculous.

Good Comfortable and Tough

This ratchet is great! The swivel handle saves a lot of injured knuckles and the handle length provides the leverage necessary to loosen the toughest fastener. The handle is comfortable in the hand too.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I'm on my fifth one...Junk

I'm going tomorrow to get my fourth replacement of this ratchet. (I do not put this under a great deal of stress when I do use it, which is not all that often) I picked one up today, only to find when I had returned home that it was a old one that wasn't even re-furbed correctly. When I called, I was told it was their policy to not give new ones out, but used ones instead. It has always been MY policy that hand tools are replaced when defective from Sears, no questions asked. Apparently this has changed, and we the consumer were not informed. I can only say that this is the beginning of the end for Sears, they are going to go out of business in the near future. I have been buying tools from them for decades, but I will have to shop elsewhere if this is what can be expected from them now.

Decent flex head ratchet - for the price

Bought this flex head for about $28 when I was gearing up to do a timing belt change on an Accord. Already had a 1/2 in ratchet but thought that the CM Flex Head would be more useful because of its nice length and the flex head of course. The length is a nice plus as you can use this ratchet as a small breaker bar. The flex head operation is not too bad but the ratcheting mechanism in the actual tool is not great. Its loose and requires to great an arc to swing in order to turn (too few teeth). Overall, I would say this ratchet can be serviceable but there are certainly better (and costlier) alternatives out there.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very sturdy wrench, heavy and rugged

This 1/2 drive ratchet is a nice addition to a 1/2 inch socket set. Ratchet is long and sturdy, def can be used as a breaker bar if needed. The flex head is great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
