1/4 In. Teardrop Ratchet a Solid Addition to Any Tool Kit
Built to perform under professional working conditions, this Craftsman 1/4 in. teardrop ratchet is at home in any shop. Whether you’re an exhaust-breathing pro or a just like turning wrenches on the weekends, it stands up to tough torsional pressures while spinning nuts and bolts with a minor 10 degrees of swing. That means that whether you’re elbow deep in an engine, or bending and stretching to get things moving behind an appliance, this ratchet moves fasteners with a only a little wiggle room.
The smart design of this 1/4 in. teardrop ratchet gets reversing directions and swapping sockets done with the simple movement of a thumb, while a precision machined square drive reduces movement and gives you more life in every socket and extension you use. A solid tool that’s a garage, home and jobsite essential, stick this 1/4 inch in your box for service you can depend on.

Is this not the benchmark for all ratchets of this type? For many years a ratchet such as this has graced my tool box until it was borrowed...never to be seen again.
I recently bought the replacement and, while a little shocked over the price, I was truly happy to see that the quality was still there if not a tad better than before.
You cannot go wrong with this ratchet as a stand alone or in a set!

This 1/4? drive ratchet with quick-release button is small but very tough. It has great balance and feels good in your hand. I would - and already have - recommend this to a friend.

This was a replacement ratchet for the last one that got lost. I do not have any special attachment to this exact style but it is the only one that fits in the set I have. Overall a good ratchet
A great quality ratchet for the price... Good length, not too short or too long and it has good weight-balace, as well...Not as fine-toothed as some of my other 1/4" drive ratchets, but for the price it's still a good ratchet....
Useful as a quick stocking stuffer for minor around the house use. Packaging couuld be more efficient for storage, lots of waste space and material to make it look bigger. Useul for small jobs.

I have a complete set of 3/8" drive ratchets, sockets (short & long) and extension bars. Sometimes these tools are not the right tool for the job because of a tight fit or close/small environment in which to work. The 1/4" line of ratchets, extension bars, long sockets and short sockets make for an ideal tool for those situations where the working room is small and a small wrench just won't work.
The look and feel of the ratchet is the same. However, I cannot accept the fact that this is now made in China. I will be returning this item as soon as I have the opportunity to. I have purchased and used mainly craftsman tools for somewhere in the area of 15 years. The three main reasons being that 1. they where USA made and 2. they have a lifetime warranty 3. I could afford them. This shift to outsourcing the production to China is unacceptable. I refuse to buy and keep any Craftsman tool that says "Made in China" on the package. Craftsman is sacrificing customer loyalty for the bottom line. If they where loosing profit or wanted to increase the profit margin they should have raised the price of the tools, not sacrificed their 50+ years of American manufacturing heritage.
Very solid product and we'll built. Handle is not too long or too short, so for light work it comes in handy but if you are looking to use it heavy job then consider something with longer hand. Worth the money for this little guy.
