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.
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.

A good 3/8" drive ratchet with a quick release. Well made with good material. It is a Craftsman so this item has a lifetime guarantee and can be returned to any Sears store. Very rugged and easy grab onto.

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.
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.
