Good price, great quality!
These 1/4" extensions are a great price and with the great quality makes these items a great purchase. I keep a set of these extensions in each truck that I have and they have come in handy several times.

1/4" Extensions
Unable to keep sockets on the extensions - the locking slide did not work on any of the three extensions.

Nice when they work, but don't last long

I bought this set a year ago and I loved them! The most frequently used one (almost the only used one) in my aviation tool set if the 3 inch long one. The extension work great for almost a year. Held the sockets on strongly and released easily. But then one day the black slider broke off and the rest of the mechanism slid out the end rendering it useless. Looking at the broken pieces, they were very small and weak. A coworker has the same extension and his broke as well. With enough daily use, these will prematurely break. The thing that disappointed me the most, was that my set is USA made!!!!!. I would expect that from a Chinese made Craftsman extension. Highly disappointed. I have ordered a set from S?K to replace all of my Craftsman extensions.

High Quality Tools Made in Taiwan

I have been wanting these ever since they were offered. My favorite feature is the one-handed release mechanism that allows you to release and drop a socket without using your other hand to pull it off. The chromed finish is flawless and the ball locks feel solid. One complaint by others that I do not understand is that the quick release mechanism gets in the way in tight spots. I think that concern is irrelevant for serious mechanics since they like me will have regular straight extensions for those tight situations. Basically what I am saying is that there is a right tool for the job and you should always select the right tool for the job.These are a great addition to my 50 or so extensions that I have covering every known size and length available times 3. They are highly useful and convenient covering many unique situations but don't cover them all. I don't think you can go wrong adding these to your tool arsenal.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Quick Release Extensions are great

I bought this extension set to use for ligt mechanical work. However, it proved o be extremely helpful to change the spark plugs in my ford pickup. The extension grips tight to the socket and will not lose its grip. So far I am extremly pleased with the perfoance and the quality of this product. I recommend it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman Quick Release Extension set wouldn't lock sockets

The set is not strong. The locking parts were soon worn out and would not hold sockets any more. Probably springs inside got contracted and couldn't push the metal ball against the sockets. Once it happens, extension bars is useless. Sockets fall down. It leave socket with bolts. You'll need magnet to retrive them. It is really frustrating. You get the picture. The locking mechanism has to be much stronger and more durable. The structure of the locking part is not for professional or severe use.

Good Idea, Poor Implementation

After using this set for only 3 weeks, i have broken all 3 quick release switches.  This is easy to do when working in close tolerance areas where the switch rubs against something.  The worst part is that once the switch breaks, the extension completely looses any locking capability and your sockets will just fall off the end.

Nice Release Feature...

I spend a great deal of my spare time in the garage. Together with my son, Nathan (age 27) we buy and restore 1980 era Porsches. Nathan is the real mechanic in the family. I pretty much offer moral support and fetch tools.

Most people would tell you that these import cars are a nightmare to work on. We haven't found that to be the case. The mechanical design of these high-performance vehicles is pretty straight-forward. That is a hallmark of the German craftsman and engineers that have developed them. It is true, however that these engineers are extremely efficient with their use of space under the hood. Large engine, small chassis and very light-weight create an environment that is sometime complicated to work in.

We have learned that the best way to deal with this challenge is to own a complete collection socket accessories. Through the use of various extension bars, adapters and universal joints we can replicate the wrench configuration that was originally used to assemble the vehicle. Craftsman calls these tools accessories! I don't think that's right! The term accessary, to me, implies that it is a "nice extra" but not really necessary.

Take it from me, if you are going to perform much mechanical work on a 1983 Porsche 944, a complete set of socket accessories is NOT optional.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
