Great quality socket. The thing that always draws me back to Craftsman tools is the amazing warranty. I own many of the top brands (Snap-On, Mac, Proto etc), but the warranty on these other brands is difficult at best. Craftsman basically has a no questions asked easy to use warranty if any hand tool ever fails. I doubt this socket will fail, but if it ever does I know Craftsman stands behind their tools. I will continue to buy many more Craftsman products from Sears. This specific socket is somewhat an odd size and difficult to find from many of the popular tool manufactures. To my suprise Sears had this 18mm spark plug socket in stock and ready to take home to get the job done. The spark plug socket is just as described, the size is etched in a very easy to read large script. The rubber insulator is well made and firmly holds the plug in place without worry of dropping the plug. The socket is also well designed so the rubber insulator does not slip out of the socket every time you pull out a plug. The socket profile is very slim and fits even the tightest work spaces. This spark plug is also priced considerably lower than all the competition. With such high quality and such a low price with a no questions asked warranty its a no brainer to buy Craftsman tools from Sears. Craftsman offers top quality tools for an affordable price. I used to spend more for some of the other popular mechanic tool brands, but after dealing with the lousy warranty that these other brands carry, now I only buy Craftsman.

Wow this is a very nice piece. This socket is my first laser etched craftsman hand tool. The chrome is nicely polished to complement the rest of my tool set. The rubber tube inside is to protect the spark plugs from breaking. This item is still made in usa so get it while you still can. I got it for under $2 and that's a steal.
Needed a spark plug socket for motorcycle. It seems that Sears was the only place I could find one that fit the deep socket. Now I have 4 sockets in this size & only one works - the Craftsman!

I grew up in the day when all you needed was a 5/8 and a 13/16 spark plug wrench. Well, some additional sizes are needed as American cars/trucks change and more foreign-designed vehicles find a home on our roadways. This is a great value in a size that costs much more off of the "tool truck." I agree that I wish it had at least a short universal and extension on it, would make it much more user friendly.

In addition, Craftsman sockets have been AS954 compliant for several years. This aerospace specification accounts for the radiused area at each "point" on the socket. Better contact with the fastener, no more rounded fasteners. One famous tool company had this patent tied up for years but the process is now available to all manufacturers and we see it applied to Craftsman sockets. Better deal than ever.

I have used this socket several times on a couple old NGK spark plugs in a Suzuki and a Yamaha motorcycle. It grabs well and fits nice and tight, but not too tight. Much less expensive than a Motion Pro 18mm spark plug socket.
