Socket set
  • Master set has every size from 3/8 to 1-5/16 inch and 10 to 32 mm in both shallow and deep lengths
  • Includes universal joint and extra long 10-inch extension, tools not found in most sets
  • Finely geared 72-tooth ratchet needs only a 5-degree working swing arc
  • High-torque 6-point sockets grip flat sides of fasteners, not corners, preventing round-off
  • All tools are made from premium-quality chrome vanadium steel with a mirror chrome plated finish
  • Tough carrying case with two built-in parts trays keeps everything organized

Well made sockets, extensions and universal adapter. They feel substantial and solid. The case is well organized, compact and shallow enough to be stored closed in majority of tool boxes. This is the set I keep in my truck that I find myself using quite often. I have other tekton sockets (12 point) but I find myself using and appreciating the 6 point of this set. It’s a truly versatile set, not only having metric and standard (common sizes without skipping sizes) but also having the deep socket equivalents. The ratchet included feels quality but the selector switch is soft and weak. I had the same intermittent issue as others have experienced, that is the selector switch goes to center while working. Compared to my other Tekton ratchet, the other has a solid, positive detent mechanism, it never failed. Going back to the case, I was disappointed by the socket retention, the “lack there of” on the metric side. I learned it the unfortunate way while I had my socket set on a platform edge (3 story building) , where I lost 3 sockets as they fell out when closing the case after finishing up a job.
I like the set, no regrets buying it. It would be perfect if all sockets were retained in their place and the ratchet designed with a stronger more positive “switch”.

[Deal Review]:

If I didn’t already have these I would buy this. I’ve switched to Tekton almost exclusively in all my latest tool purchases. Their quality is great and they give a lifetime warranty.

What!? Why aren’t 75% of the included tools driver bits!? Pass! /s

I’ve become a Tekton fan due to their no skip sizing and the impact sets. I have to ask though… for most people, do you need to spend over 0 on a nice hand tool set like this?

 

Side note, I’ll be glad when the SAE stuff dies off.

And Allen wrenches….
🤣 true forgot about those gems
How do they company to snapon tools?

the 1/4 and 3/8 combo set is also down to 73.65. I’ve been tracking this one and it’s been at 79.95 for a long time.

 

I also own the smaller 1/2 set and it’s been great!

But to have an all in one set like this that doesn’t skip sizes and is both metric and standard is great. You know you will have the right size on most any project and you won’t be buying additional sets just to get one or two missing sizes in the future. I’m also a fan of this brand

I really would love a 6-Point set but not sure if want to grab this or continue to take advantage of some of the Sears stuff

A socket set only includes ratchets and sockets. If you want driver bits and allen wrneches, then look for a general use mechanics set.

Thanks for the post. Just as an FYI, I believe these are made in China, for those wondering, but I have experienced no problems with quality and use them primarily for car maintenance, and some various tasks around the house, but I wrench on my tools at times. My father, a man with almost all snap-on tools for his job as a machinist, has heard great things about this brand from Co-workers and bought me a few impact socket sets last year from Lowe’s (I think), to replace my missing/broken Craftsman tools that really haven’t held up (I bought the ones made in China, and the quality is nowhere near this brand). I used them to change my timing belt/water pump a month ago and I have not had to replace anything yet, I’m sure I will in the future, but I have also heard good things about ease of replacement and customer service. Unless quality diminishes, I’ll continue making the switch to Tekton as I need to expand my tools.

I believe they were being facetious… lol
