Sockets will follow one of two size conventions. SAE is commonly referred to as Standard or Imperial Standard and measurements are in fractions of an inch. Metric is the convention preferred by most countries and metric parts can be found on everything from engine bolts to home gyms. Metric sockets are measured in millimeters.
Sockets & ratchet sets are used to loosen or tighten nuts and bolts, and are widely used both at home and by professionals in many industries. By using a ratcheting mechanism, nuts and bolts can be easily removed without having to reposition the tool after each turn, saving you time and effort. So, whether your task requires fixed or ratchet sockets we offer a wide variety of options to choose from. Fixed sockets come in a number of styles such as breaker bars, beam-style torque wrenches, speed handles, and spinner handles to name a few. As for ratcheting sockets, they come in click-style torque wrenches, flex-head, swivel head, palm, and rotator ratchets. These types of wrenches come in all sizes and shapes, including both metric and SAE sizes, making it easy to find the right tool for your needs.
