TEKTON 1859 Wrench, Socket and Screwdriver Bit Tool Set, 135-Piece

Consumer Ratings 4.7 Stars (4.7 / 5)

Ratchets and Sockets

Tekton’s 1859 tool set comes with three quick-release ratchets. Sockets are attached to the ratchet via the quick-release button holding them in place eliminating accidental dropping of the sockets. Detent notches keep all sockets securely locked onto the rackets. The ratchets feature 72-tooth pear head which only need a 5-degree swing arc which makes it much easier to tighten and loosen nuts/bolts in tight spaces.

Also included in the tool set is a wide range of six point flank drive sockets. Both SAE (Standard American Equivalent) and metric socket sizes. These sockets are designed for firm gripping of the flat sides of nuts and bolts. This tight fit helps prevent rounding of fastener corners. The sizes are permanently etched in and clearly marks.

The ratchets and sockets are built with heat-treated forged chrome vanadium steel and are coated with corrosion-resistant chrome-plated finish for an extended life.

 

Open & Boxed End Wrenches

The 8 angel ended wrenches included in the tool set feature 15-degree offset box ends and 15-degree angled open ends. This feature helps to get better access into tight locations which might prevent some scraped knuckles. There are four SAE and four Metric sizes included.

The wrenches are precision-machined 12-point box ends. They are made out of the same high-quality forged and heat-treated chrome vanadium steel as the ratchets and sockets. Corrosion-resistant chrome-plated coating helps the polished-mirror finish last.

 

Magnetic Screwdriver with 36 Bits

Also included in the 1859 tool set is 36 different screwdriver bits and a 7-inch long screwdriver with a quick-change magnetic holder. The handle features a soft, non-slip handle which helps deliver comfort and exceptional torque. The multi-purpose 1/4-inch hex by 1/4-inch drive socket adapter will allow the sockets to be used with the magnetic screwdriver. The bits are made of the same heat-treated forged chrome vanadium as the above tools.

 

Convertible Carrying Case

This carrying case has multiple uses. It’s converts into two trays which can be stored in toolboxes, cabinets, on shelf’s and anywhere else you can think of. All of the included tools securely snap into place and will not fall out helping you get them organized.
