Rated 5 out of 5Â by GregL65 I love this thing!
I was having a heck of a time getting to a bolt in my Toyota Previa's engine which normally requires dropping the engine to get to. But I wanted to do the repair myself rather than pay the $600 a shop quoted. The Previa's engine is a pancake below the front seats, and access for this work is through a small panel below the driver's seat. Everything is very cramped down in there. Access to this part from underneath is even worse.
I wasn't able to see the bolt at all, and was just barely able to reach my fingers in and around obstacles to touch it. My 3/8" socket wrench was way too big to move around in there, so I bought a simple 1/4 socket wrench (not this one). I tried using a universal joint on it to get access, but the joint was so loose and floppy, and access was so limited, I could not get the socket to go onto the bolt even after many tries.
Then I saw this rotating 1/4 socket wrench, and saw how the rotating head had enough friction to stay in place unless moved deliberately. I was able to position the rotating head just so, and slowly finesse the socket onto the bolt -- in fact, it was fairly easy! With this wrench I was able to do that repair. I'm not sure what I would have done without it.

Purchased to use for work on my motorcycle. Product moves to all the angles I needed, plus you can rotate to use as a driver.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BJS1 Exactly what I needed
It works, simple as that. Couldn't fix my garage door without it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by neb68 Roto ratchet- Husky brand
Nice feeling tool, adjustable tension on pivoting head, great at any angle. find that my nut driver set sits in the tool chest more frequently as I use the roto ratchet to break the bolt free and then use as a ratcheting nut driver. Concerns are that it may not be as strong as a standard ratchet handle, but in 1/4 in drive it should not be an issue.

We bought this specifically to get to a bolt we could not get to with any other tool we owned. It worked perfectly! We have not used it much so I can not attest to it's longevity but it does seem well built and I do feel it will last :)
