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!

Purchase the ratchet to replace a lost/stolen one from a molded plastic tool set. the ratchet appears to be of good quality as craftsman provides. the lower star is because it is the exact same model as the lost/stolen one, but the new one is much smaller at the teardrop head so it does not sit in the plastic mold case properly. instead it flops around and needs to be adjusted overtime the case is opened.
the Craftsman 3/8 in. Drive Quick Release Teardrop Ratchet is a great product with long life. I always rely on Craftsman products and tools to get the job done!

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!
