Craftsman Flex Extension Bar, 1/4 in. Drive Reaches Tight Places
For those nuts and bolts in tight or awkward places that a standard drive ratchet can't reach, this flex extension bar, 1/4 in. drive from Craftsman comes to the rescue. The flex gets you around parts that are blocking the area you need to get to and its 4-inch length gives you that much additional length to work with.
Use the Craftsman flex extension bar, 1/4 in. drive with 1/4-inch sockets on the end of a thumb wheel ratchet or a spinner handle that accepts a thumb wheel ratchet and reach that bolt that's stuck in a maze of obstacles blocking your way. Made from sturdy yet flexible alloy steel, this extension bar comes with the Craftsman lifetime warranty.
- Reach nuts and bolts in those tight, impossible places with the flex extension bar, 1/4 in. drive
- Ideal for low-torque applications
- Use with 1/4" sockets on the end of a thumb wheel ratchet or a spinner handle that accepts a thumb wheel ratchet
- Made from sturdy alloy steel with a silver, polished finish
- Strong yet flexible construction and design
- Length: 4" when fully extended
- Weight: 0.5 lbs
- Built with Craftsman quality and guaranteed with Craftsman lifetime warranty
- Available for Gift Wrap

My wish is that there were longer and larger versions sold by Craftsman! What a great tool to have when the regular ratchet/extension combo won't work! This thing allows me to get in to some tight spots and still get the job done!
Again, need one for 3/8 drive and a longer one for the rear spark plugs!
I was hoping this item was a little less rigid because as it is the flexibility needed to get into tight places might prove to be a problem. The quality of how the ends are attached leaves me with durability issues. I'll take a wait and see approach, and it does have the famous Craftsman Warranty!!! Would you recommend to a friend?==Maybe
I have a 3/8" flex extension that I purchased some 20 years ago made by a company in Japan. Only used it twice in 20 years but when I did, I was happy I had it. Happened to see this one in a local store one day and thought I would not regret putting it in my tool box. Like some said, it's a little stiff but it's well made. This is a tool you don't need to use often. When you do, you'll be very happy.

I am pleased with this addition to my other craftsman tools. It is solidly made and can take a significant amount of torque. My only comment is that becaue the wire coil is so rigid, it does not have a significant amount of give. But that being said, I prefer for it to be stiff and strong, than more flexible and weak
This a solid tool however the chromed ends seem a little sloppy at first glance. It almost appears as if the plating could be flaked off. Also this is the only length offered but I would prefer it were at least a full inch or more longer as it seems a little short to get enough flex around tight spots. Also the socket end goes on and off OK but is not the normal "smooth as butter" feel of my older Craftsman extensions. I am not going to throw it out but must say that I am not overly pleased with it. Just OK for me as it does not set itself apart from average run of the mill cheaper tools available at discount stores.

I bought this thinking it would be a flex able extension as the title says? WOW was i ever wrong! It maybe bends 25 degrees and you really have to apply a LOT of pressure just to get that out of it. It is VERY stiff and it is difficult to work with. If it was $1.99 with ************* then it would be a good deal, but not at this price.
I've had many occasions that a flexible socket extension would have made the job much easier. I was happy to find this on the Sears site, and plan to purchase additional items like this in the future.
Don't get confused, this Flex Extension Bar Is not a replacement for swivel sockets, universals, wobbles and extensions. I've found it rather useful with various 1/4 inch sockets on the end of a spinner handle that will accept a Thumbwheel ratchet and with just a Thumbwheel ratchet as well. I have always used this extension with the understanding it was meant for low torque applications and in doing so it has never let me down. I do have a "spare" on hand though in the event I do have a self inflicted failure.
