This ratchet is unique in that a socket can be changed quickly by just installing it into the ratchet handle and it remains secure and provides even distribution of pressure while removing difficult and stubborn nuts and bolts. The old style ratchet would break off and ruin the ratchet handle but this spreads the force evenly along the interior of the ratchet handle. The ratchet handle will not shear off but remain in use while subjecting it to greater strain to remove stubborn hardware. The most attractive feature is that the sockets that fit this novel ratchet are quickly removed and replaced with ease making it quick to change out
The craftsman 19pc universal max axess socket and ratchet set 3/8" drive is the best addition to my craftsman 42" tool box that i purchased at sears a few months ago. This tool does it all! it can loosen rusty or stripped bolts and will fit over any type of bolt head. great purchse. highly recommend you buy it. especially if you are an auto mechanic
Purchased the 131 piece Max Axess mechanics set a few months ago. Was very impressed with the quality. Wanted to get a universal set with the same pass through qualities, and these seemed to fit the bill. Excellent price; Very well made!!!
I purchased this as a supplement to my existing tools. I usually use 6 point sockets unless something prevents it. The universal system could replace your traditional 12 point sockets (they make them for 1/4" and 3/8" drivers, just not pass through like these). My issue is that it seems that the universal sockets are hard on some fasteners. For most applications, this may not be an issue.... but if you have bolts that are regularly used, then the universal sockets may chew them up. I may be incorrect, I've just noticed unusual marks on the fasteners after using this set. The good news is that the "max access" system allows for very long, threaded fasteners to pass through the wrench. I did also purchase the 3" extension, which is also pass through.
I was replacing a wheel bearing on a van. I was away from home and depended on my buddy to have the tools I needed. Well, I needed an 18mm socket. I put the ************** junk he had on and it rounded the nut. I was livid, and determined. I didn't want to drive 45 minutes back to my house, so I went to Sears and found this set. I bought it, bought an extension for it (yes, they have extensions) and went back to get the bolts off. The bolts were rounded because of the junk I used earlier, but the Craftsman socket in this set had no problems breaking them bolts loose. If you can get past their goofy looks, it's a great set.

This is the best set I've ever owned. I think this is the only set will need and I have your deep socket set the standard & metric one, and since i got this one in Dec. i haven't used it since. I love that if the bolt is a little longer you don't need to get a wrench to finish the job. And the best part it fits on any type of bolt.
This is a very handy set! It not only has both standard and metric sizes but also has the universal sockets to take off literally any type nut/bolt you'd want. Plus, you get the open-body ratchet so you can slip this over the longest bolt or even the longest piece of all thread!
