Socket/Ratchet Sets for Cramped Spaces
Low-profile socket/ratchet sets from Snap-on Industrial answer the need for sockets and ratchets that fit cramped quarters.
Low-profile socket/ratchet sets from Snap-on Industrial answer the need for sockets and ratchets that fit cramped quarters. Sizes include 1/4" drive metric and fractional and 3/8" drive metric and fractional. Applications run the gamut from wind power turbines in the renewable energy market to aircraft and aerospace segments.
The 1/4" drive metric set features a low-profile ratchet and 10 six-point, low-profile sockets. A mini-ratchet with a 72-tooth gear means maximum torque with minimal movement in tight spaces. A thin handle design and easy-action reverse lever allows greater access in small areas. Socket sizes range from 5mm to 13mm. Also, a 10-piece, 12-point low-profile socket/ratchet set is available in fractional sizes ranging from 3/16" to 9/16".
The 3/8" drive sets feature an 80-tooth, low-profile ratchet and either nine six-point or nine 12-point low-profile sockets; metric socket sizes range from 8mm to 18mm, with fractional sizes ranging from 1/4" to 3/4". The 3/8" square drive also works with standard sockets. Because of the Dual 80 technology and a tighter torque ratio, the 3/8" ratchets require only a 4 ½-degree arc to engage the next gear tooth. The dual pawl ratchet mechanism engages seven teeth to provide strength and durability.
All Snap-on Industrial low-profile sockets and ratchets are manufactured from alloy steel that's forged to exacting tolerances and heat treated for optimum strength and durability. Nickel-chrome plating protects against corrosion and makes each piece easy to wipe clean.
