Socket Sets

A socket is a tool that attaches to a socket wrench, ratchet, torque wrench or other turning tool in order to tighten or loosen a fastener such as a nut or bolt by turning it.They come in all shapes and sizes so knowing what you want to do with them is the first step. The more pieces within the socket set, the more versatility this gives you to ensure you have the right socket for the job in hand.When choosing what socket set to purchase always have an idea on what type of ratchet or wrench you need.Why use a socket or socket setHaving a socket set means that you have everything that you need at hand.
