I caught these at a sale price which I had never seen before and ordered 5 sets. I can now place all my sockets in order in a single drawer plus assemble a working set to keep in the Motorhome. They are so much easier to handle than the spring clip holders. I watched for about two years to catch them @ a sale price I thought reasonable.
The racks are the best quality I've seen compared to all the other options from other stores. The plastic is thick and ridged - certainly good enough for a DYI customer like myself. Sears sells replacement nipples which are useful since you can put more sockets on each rail. Most folks I know like to put more sockets on the rail.

I knock off one star because only 8 studs are included on each rack. The average "set" is minimum of 9 sockets so you are forced to spend another $3 for 5 more studs. Now to the product.... It's plastic, but it feels more solid and durable than the metal rails I had previously purchased from Sears. The ball bearing on each stud hold the socket securely (the deep sockets would frequently fall off the metal rail). I purchased this 3 pc. set for $7.96 on sale so don't pay full price of $13. The extra studs were on sale for $2.54 from $3. These rails come in grey as well for "Metric", but I chose to keep em all black due to stock in hand at my local Sears store. I only wish these rails had some distinguishing color to help identify between 3/8 and 1/2" drives (you have to look closely before grabbing the correct rail). Hope this helps....
I was skeptical of the other reviews' claims that the sockets would be held firmly by these holders. All three sizes "grab" the sockets with a grip that is almost too hard to break manually. Arranging my sockets with these holders creates an organized and easy-to-see-what I am looking for toolbox.
I like the way you can easily remove and replace the sockets on these racks. The rails are flexible but I am okay with them. Sometimes the way the rails flex causes the sockets to slide up and down the rail. The extra studs are available if you need more of them at an extra cost. I measured about 13-3/16" on the rail where you can install studs. You cannot add as many 1/2" drive sockets as the 1/4" drive sockets per rail. The racks I purchased said they were made in USA and they have a lifetime warranty. From what I understand the black racks are for SAE sockets and the gray racks are for metric sockets. I am not sure but I think the metric racks are sold in Sears stores. These racks are good for organizing and storing loose sockets. I use them inside some of my portable tool boxes to keep sockets from going all over the place. If you need a longer rail like these Armstrong has longer rails available in either red SAE or blue metric. The studs do not come standard on Armstrong rails and you have to buy them separate. The Craftsman studs will work on the Armstrong rails and are cheaper to buy from Sears.
I bought 13 sets of those along with extra studs to organize all of my sockets. I've tired a ton of holders and organizers, but those are on the money; they are very affordable, simple in design, and allow for great flexibility when organizing sockets. I mounted those on a peg board with zip-ties and could not be happier with the way my sockets are organized now. ...and Sears, thank you for making those in the USA, not China. ...if there rest of the manufacturing was brought back, like back in the old days...
