Need To Have - Not - Nice To Have
You need a set of these- even if you think you don't. Once you get them you'll toss them in your box and forget about them. The day will come when you have to stack a couple of extensions and their worth will become evident. Tired of pulling your plug socket off with a pair of pliers? You need the 3 piece 3/8 inch Drive Quick Release Extension Bar Set. There are some that are concerned about the use of plastic in the construction of this item and the possibility of dirt, grime and grease having an ill effect on the release of the socket. Based on my experience it has not created a problem or been a concern.

Disappointment from day one
I bought the extension set from a local sears outlet and was disapointed on the first use. I attempted to use the extesion set to change spark plugs when I got debris in the quick release mechanism. The mechanism jammed and would not hold a socket in place. It was a chore to clean the mechanism of debris and considering that the use of the extension set would involve more than spark plug removal I decided to return the set after one day of frustrated use. I bought a simple extension set that did not have the quick release feature, and I am happier due to fewer jams. I prefer a hand tool I can use under difficult conditions with minimal maintenance and is still capable of functioning at it's orginial capacity, which does not apply to this set.

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 situations. Basically what I am saying is that there is a right tool for the job and that you should never misuse or abuse a tool. Select the right tool for the job and all will be good! These are a great addition to my 50 or so extensions that I have covering every known size and length available times 3. These are highly useful and convenient covering many unique situations but don't cover them all. Fill out your set with what you need but I don't think you can go wrong with these in your tool arsenal.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice extensions

These extensions will help me with spark plug changes. When the non locking extension will pull out of the spark plug socket when it sticks to the spark plug. I wish the were made in the USA.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Dosen't quite work like I'd thought

This seems like a wonderful concept for spark plug instalation. I bought this because I was tired of everytime I pull the extention off, the sock would stay attached to the plug. Well, it will still do it with this. Though, this is a tad bit stronger than your normal extention. The key secret is to no install the plug all the way into the socket. Insert the plug into the sprak plug socket, but not deep enough for the hex part of the plug to touch the socket. You can spin the pulg into the hole enough to start the treads, then pull the extention AND the socket out of the hole. Then, you need to switch to a normal sized socket, not the rubber pluged spark plug socket, to finish the installation and get the proper torque. It was a nice try Craftsman, but you only get two stars for trying. Maybe a stranger spring inside, or a snap type locking mechanizim would work better.

Make Your Ratchet/Sockets More Useful...

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.
