This Ingenious Pass-Through Ratchet And Socket Set is 70% Off

<p class="p1">When it comes to mid-tier tools—respectable quality offerings that won't the bank like pro-grade stuff will—GearWrench is consistently a go-to brand in the pack, and we just came across one of their more out-of-the-ordinary kits at a significant discount. More commonly known for their quality ratcheting wrenches, this ratchet and socket set maintains that same mantra of streamlining your repair/DIY job.

<p class="p1">Even to the more well-versed wrencher this set might look a little confusing at first glance. Specifically designed for nuts fitted onto longer studs, as well as for bolts on top of an engine bay that have a ball socket for affixing engine covers (See right hand side of turbo coolant reservoir in this video clip), you're basically trading off a larger diameter ratchet head in order to not have to fuss with using wrenches or (if you're lucky) extra deep sockets.

<p class="p1">

<p class="p1">It's also worth noting that GearWrench added a very smart feature to the ratchet in this kit, and one you don't even always see on pro-grade ratchets out there. The flexible ratchet head in this set has a locking function, meaning you can set your desired angle and safely guide your ratchet to its target location—something that will occasionally prove frustrating without a lock, especially when using a heavier socket/extension combination. If we were looking at full-pop retail, the kit runs for nearly $200 (a bit steep, to be frank), but at 70% off you're looking at $83.30. Given the cursing and busted knuckles this kit can save you, we'd say it's worth it if you're looking to add some more specialized kit to your growing tool collection.

If the “full-pop retail” for the kit is $200, and it is being sold at 70% off, then the cost should be $60 - not $83.30.

Honestly if there weren't a "moderator" tag I would have ban and cleaned for this post, I flagged it for discussion. If this is a vendor we need to get that fixed.
