These tools got me out of a jam. I didn't know they existed until visiting the Vienna Sears store to get a broken flare nut wrench replaced. When I got home, I used one of the crowfoot wrenches which allowed me to loosen a very tight brake line connection which was in an awkward location.
The crow foots are thick which allows good contact with a flare nut.
For starts, these used to be made in the USA in mid 2010. Now they are made in China. I purchased a metric set in 2010 made in the USA. I recently ordered the SAE set online and got China tools. You can still get the older USA ones in stores for as long as that stock remains, but online you will get China made. Every manufacturer claims that it is made to the same specifications and quality, but here is the scoop on these. I took my online ordered chinese ones to the store and exchanged for an old stock USA set. If you compare them side by side, here are the major differences. The USA set has fully radiused corners, where the chinese set is more squared off. The USA set is tapered down significantly on the smaller sizes for more tool clearance, whereas the Chinese set has no tapering and could limit accessibility. The USA set had no forging marks prior to chroming, but the chinese set had a few cosmetic dings that got chromed over. So in my opinion the USA set is cosmetically and functionally better. As for strength, only time will tell. Everybody is switching to Chinese stuff with a lifetime warranty, which makes you older USA stuff more of a relic. Makes the warranty pretty useless in my opinion, but I buy USA stuff because I figure it is better made and I shouldn't need the warranty. Same with ***** - if you have older 6point sockets and go in for a replacement, they can only offer you 12point replacements. They will give you a money back so that you can go to Sears and buy a USA made 6 point socket, but who knows how long those will be made in the USA. My 2 cents is don't buy Sears products made in China. Teach these CEOs that the reason you pay a bit more is for the USA made tools, not to save a few bucks on Chinese products.
Working on a restoration project. Upgraded to power disk brakes and replaced old brake lines. Needed the crowfoot flare nut wrenches to properly torque the flare nuts (yes, I torque everything to factory specs). They worked great!

I bought this set to use to tighten flare nuts on tubing. To tighten and loosen them without rounding off the corners of the nuts by just using a crows foot wrench.
these are useful for certain jobs but I was disappointed to discover that they are Chinese made. craftsman is getting a bad reputation from putting their name on tools like this. to keep the open end from spreading I clamp large vice grips over the sides . I love the American made craftsman stuff .
Bought this set to take off air lines on a truck. Only needed the 1", but in store you could only buy the 10 piece set. Fine, never know when another size will be needed for something else. However, these are junk Made in China! The problem is that they begin to separate at the open end & want to slip around the nut you are trying to turn, therefore stripping it. Remember, this is a 3/8" drive & you are not going to load it with much torque. They are just made as cheaply as possible in China with pot metal & are junk! Am going to try to return them, though do not see it happening as the one piece was used.
I work at Ford dealership and put these flare nut wrenches to the test multiple times without any problems. Their wide body and contact surface area are perfect. Not happy about paying $80 for Made in China though - I would be willing to pay extra if these were made in USA.
