Craftsman Quick Release Teardrop Ratchets are great tools

These long handled 3/8" drive ratchets are highly favored when I select a ratchet to do work with.  The long handle provides more leverage than the shorter 3/8" drive ratchet.  These ratchets are included in my 3/8" drive Craftsman Industrial socket sets and they get quite a workout.  The ratchets are the only part of a Craftsman socket set I have ever broken and I have used Craftsman hand tools for over 30 years.  An improvement would be fully machine gears inside and adding a dust cover.

Made in China for the same price as before

I've had my 3/8" ratchet for over ten years, over which time I used it on at least a weekly basis.  FInally, the ratcheting mechanism showed some signs of wear.  I took it in to get it replaced and found the new ones were made in china.  The salesman mentioned he had many of the new 3/8 and 1/2 returned due to failures.  At the same time, the price is still the same!

This is sad.  I always went for the USA made Craftsmans hand tools.  Now I'll have to find a new company to buy ratchets.

Professional

It's made in USA. It locks the socket on with a push button release and it's guaranteed for life.

Quality_with_lifetime_replacement

I bought this Craftsman hand tool because other than one other maker, no one will replace the item if it fails for my lifetime. It replaced one of the cheaply made imported tools that fell apart during use. This is much superior in construction.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good ratchet

The only reason I bought this ratchet, because my other craftsman ratchet of 15 years finally broke (locking mechanism).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Long Ratchet

Love the ratchet, worked flawlessly, I needed a ratchet just before Christmas while out of town and I went to Sears to get one, I saw the extended length 3/8 drive ratchet and since I already had two of the shorter ones at home I decided to purchase the longer one, love it, so glad I bought it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

these ratchets are garbage

i bought a 260 pc mechanics tool set . when i was just fixing cars in my driveway it worked well, but i still broke the 3/8 drive ratchet so i went to replace it and they took my long hanld and gave me a referb short and said thats what i had to accept took it home and the same day it started skipping went back to the store and they said it was referbed so i had to take another referb, that one finnished the job but the next time i worked on a car it started skipping. so i went back to sears and they said i had to take another referb cause mine was a referb took that one home and it too started skipping. then i got a job at a shop fixing cars and wanted a new ratchet so i went in and they said i had to take another referb so i said i wanted to talk to the store manager and the lady said just go get a new one then. so monday my first day i used the crap outta it and on tuesday it started skipping on wed it would just switch between forward and reverse on its own and thur it was locked it wouldnt go fwd revese and wount ratchet, so i returned it and they gave me another new one so fri it worked fine but sat it started skipping again. i dont use a cheater bar or use it on super tight bolts i have impacts for those i just cant belive how cheaply they are made now. so went back to sears and was told they have a professional line of ratchets that are way better constructed and and i should BUY one of those cause they cant keep replacing new ratchets every couple of days. what a joke i talked to my snap on guy and he said he would bring me a new ratchet every day if i brake it every day and said if i broke one more than once every week he would give me gift certs for the price of the ratchet every time to use on other tools......so long crafts man hello snap on. but you probly wont be able to read this cause crapsman wont post it too sad, they had a great name and its gone..... they are only conserned about their bottom line and not their quality or rep. oh and snap on, mac, and matco all have life time replacements on all their products including tool boxes and air tools,  take that craftsman that only replaces hand tools. i called craftsman and left a message for them to call me and i still havnt heard back from them, probly cause it will cost them money not make them money, thanks for nothing!!!!!!!!!!!

Ratchet has a mind of its own

This is the worst ratchet Craftsman has its name on. The plastic selector lever is cheap and lightweight. Pawl in the ratchet body will reverse without warning. Ratchet can't handle more than 80 ft lbs without stripping the gears. Handle kills your hands due to the slim design. Horrible horrible design overall. Harbor Freight has better ratchets than this one, cheaper too.
