This is the same ratchet that has been in Craftsman mechanic tool sets for ages...and for good reason! Strong, solid and overbuilt to withstand severe duty, this is the most used ratchet any place I have ever been!

I bought this to replace my original Craftsman 3/8 drive quick release teardrop ratchet purchased in the 1980's. I thought it had been lost forever. This new one just didnt seem as good somehow, the mechanism felt cheaper and less precise. I then found my original ratchet and compare the two. Although nearly identical in appearance, this new one has a looser mechanism than the much older unit! I'm glad I found my old one.
This was my ratchet of choice until here recently. As soon as I picked up a new one at the store I knew something was different. It felt cheap looked cheaper and didn't work as smooth as all the others I had before. I turned it over to get a better look and seen the words MADE IN CHINA.

I got this item in the 283 piece tool set and it seemed to work fine at first but after only 3 months getting used like 2 times a week it gave up and is so hard to turn and it doesn't even ratchet anymore without 50lbs of torque on it. Very disappointed!
I went to buy some new ratchets today and seen they were made in CHINA! From now on ill no longer buy craftsman tools since they are cheaply made in CHINA. Im now buying S and K tools which are MADE IN THE USA. Shame on you Craftsman!

I bought this 3/8 " ratchet for my son who already owned Craftsman sockets. It works great and helped us to assemble brackets and hooks in the garage. Now everything in the garage is off the floor and hanging up. Craftsman ratchets are the best. I personally have 4 differents sizes of Ctraftsman ratchets myself. Highly recommended

This is your basic ratchet done correctly. It feels solid and there isn't a lot of play in the head like other ratchets have. I've had one of these for the better part of 25 years I think my parents bought me a set when I was a teen working on my car myself. Only reason I got this one is I was away from home and needed to fix something that had come loose on my while on the road.
I own 4 of these ratchets. All the exact same thing. 2 of them are a little longer because of a different year, but they're all 2010+. every single one works horrible. these ratchets are now only 36 teeth. or around there. my kobalt ratchets have 72. these feel like the teeth are round. they don't really click. the low Amount of teeth make it a nightmare to try to use in tight places. the quick release button also tends to fail most of the time. the only use i have for these ratchets are for my 2 year old to play with, or if i need to take it somewhere so i don't have to worry about lousing it or stealing it. i would not recommend. The ONLY thing good i can say about these ratchets, is that Sears is good about replacing them. I'm my opinion, you shouldn't have to replace a ratchet. if you do, you're not buying good tools.
