So I'm a hobby mechanic I refuse to pay out my hard earned money for the "convenience" of letting someone else fix something. It's sort of like flying vs driving. You may get to lounge in the airport but did you really save any usable time...and how much did it cost you. OK someone walked off with my Craftsman Slim Profile 3/8" ratchet and my wife bought me this for Christmas or Father's Day. I honestly don't like using it. Its too heavy & the handle is too long to take advantage of the high teeth count. It doesn't have a quick release button. I have two cheap long handle ratchets for breaking loose things and I usually want something light and nice to the touch and slightly smaller for normal clearance items. I actually tried to use it this last weekend and it was too big and went to the freebie forged craftsman POS and that worked. I also have a 3/8" AmPro stubby high tooth ratchet. I prefer to use that for an application that requires it. She bought my the 1/4" Premium Grade as well and that one is much more useful. Save your money & buy a Craftsman Slim Profile and if you want a high teeth ratchet get a stubby one for those tight spaces.
This item is smooth to work with and great for tight places that you have difficulty reaching. However, I found the claws or notches inside the ratchet to be a little off .
I use it almost everyday, and it works great . the only problems I have is that u have to take the head apart and grease it cause they are not greased very well from factory .
I picked up a 3/8 premium ratchet yesterday, have used about every ratchet out there including truck brands. With out any question this is the finest ratchet made. The finish is perfect, there were no blemishes, it reminded me of a high end German car in quality. The action was smooth as a Swiss watch, It felt perfect. Most important, I have large hands The feel was like someone made it just for me. COO is USA.

Was "operational" for 4-5 months however the connection between Ratchet Drive and head became loose after only a few weeks. Craftsman refused to replace under their so-called "lifetime" warranty, no reason given why they would not replace. This was the first Craftsman tool I ever purchased, I will never purchase another one, I would strongly encourage anyone who requires a always performing, and a true no questions replacement warranty to use Snap-on (my personal choice) or Mac as they last forever, and provided you don't misuse them they last forever. If it breaks just request a replacement kit or talk to your rep and arrives a new one (or the new version if no longer being made). I should note "red" Snap-on are made in the U.S.A. they have a cheep brand that is not but all true Snap-on are made in the U.S.A. unlike Craftsman or Kobalt

Being a 63 year old mechanic I found this new ratchet when I went to sears the other day to buy some other tools.Someone obviously got it right this time with comfort and ergonomics. This fits in your hand so comfortably and smooth.
