The finished look of the tool is a bit sloppy looking

The socket drive fits ok but i am not too sure what's going on with the tool. When you lay it beside my other craftsman breaker bars it just doesn't quite look right. The raised panels on each side of the handle are polished but it looks like the tool was ground by hand before being polished. There are uneven spots all over the raised panels. Also the flex point doesn't feel like my others. It moves 180 good enough but it just isn't as smooth. I might take this one back and exchange it for another that has a better feel. This one must have been made by a new tool making rookie or something as I have never seen a Craftsman tool look this sloppy before. That's what I get for trusting the mail order method instead of going to the store to get it myself. I hope sears isn't pushing seconds out to mail order customers because I have come to like having things shipped directly to my garage. Maybe I shouldn't knock the whole tool down so many stars but what I have in my hand is definitely not something I want in my tool box so I cannot in good conscious recommend it to anyone else. The code on the handle has a D-AB that I am unfamiliar with. I am used to V's and double VV's so maybe it's a new manufacturing facility or something. I sure hope this is not a new downward quality trend as I own a gazillion dollars worth of their stuff and this one's definitely going back to the store!

Off Shored/ Not USA

Online chat. Asked who manufactured this and where. Was told Apex manufactured it and Made in USA. Ordered for in store pick-up. Nothing on handle. On plastic holder, back side, Made in China plain as can be. Walked down the aisle and returned it. Good luck finding Made in USA. Will go to brands who still manufacture in USA.

Handy item I'm glad I purchased

I'm glad I tried this out ( in 1/4" ) for under $10.00 it's told me I'll be back to buy the 3/8" and 1/2" drive versions. For many bolts this allows you to move up to a 45 or 90 degree from the socket - and make a quick spin to get it snug. Nice finish - still made in USA as of 11/10/12

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 1/4" breaker bar is the best for bike riders

Bought this 1/4" drive breaker just to have, but found out it is very convient if you have a bike or work on small engines.  I never thought i would use this when i bought it, but now i couldn't imagine not having it around.  if you buy this you will be surprised how often you use it, might even become you next child in the family.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Sleek design, good length and made in the USA

This is a tool that I carry in a pack when I commute to work via bicycle. It is lightweight for it's strength and fits well in the pack. I like the fact that it is still manufactured in USA and guaranteed for life. My only complaint is that the 1/4" to 3/8" adapter to use with a 15mm socket) is quite tough to remove, though I won't be removing it often, if at all.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very tough for the price!

This little guy comes in handy when loosening tough bolts or nuts. The pivot head is useful when you need a little bit of an angle. Also, I use it instead of my ratchet in case I need a little extra muscle. This thing can be hit with a hammer to free up some tough bolts.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 6" flex handle disapointed me in design.

I recieved (for my birthday) a Craftsman's 6 inch 1/4" drive bar to go with the 3/8" drive Allen brand I already have. The first thing that I did was to pop a socket on it. The only thing is that it didn't pop on. It took a minute of me forcing and wiggling to get the socket to snap on and then almost as much of a struggle to get it off. I tried several other sockets on it, just in case the socket was the problem. Nope, each socket went on the same. Af bit of investigation ravealed the the spring behind the dentent ball was soft, but fully compressed before the ball was fully in the drive.I was able to get it to work well after pressing the ball in with a vise, but it's irritating that it didn't work in the first place. I also noticed that there was at least twice the play in the drive pivot as my larger 3/8 Allen bar. The beam is also thinner that that of my Craftsman 44807 standard duty 1/4" drive ratchet. Hopefully it will hold up, but so far it hasn't met my expectations.
