Rated 4 out of 5Â by Enginerd One set lets you go from 1/2" to 1/4" and back
I haven't tested these to their breaking point, but the snap together with my ratchet set from a different brand without fuss. This set lets you use 1/2" ratchet with 1/4" bits and visa versa.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by GaryWasher Very basic low cost tools
3-piece socket adapters. This is a very basic set, 1/2 to 3/8, 3/8 to 1/4, and 1/4 to 3/8. The one you will find missing is a 3/8 to 1/2, which I use often. They all fit just fine, with just the right retention force on either end. All 3 adapters have the retention grooves inside, which is a bit unusual for the 1/4 size. I have rarely seen that feature in a 1/4 socket. The chrome plating looks good on the outsides. So much for the good news.
The bad news is that there is apparently no chrome plating on the insides of the female ends. You can see the paint flaking off, after only a few uses, in one of the photos. I have many sets of Husky socket tools and these are the only ones I have that are not plated inside. These will probably corrode and become difficult to attach or remove over time.
Also, this may be nitpicking, but the plastic rack that comes with the adapters and can be used for storage is too tight a fit on the large adapter. It must be almost hammered on and pried off. Most folks will throw it away, but if not, you will find it difficult to use.
I can only just barely recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by a4andrew nice variety of sizes - good construction
Pieces were as expected, though would be nice if each had etched in it the sizes in which they accommodate. I had to wrestle with the packaging to get them loose and off. I should have tried pliers rather than a lot of brute strength which took me over 5 minutes to get two of them off.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Oneydee Handy and a must have for any tool box
Very happy with this three-piece adapter set. They have helped me countless times already as I reach for the right size driver/socket. Nice being able to have the flexibility these provide and don't know what I would do without them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DaveB Excellent Heavy Duty Adapters
There are a good set of adapters when you need to get your 1/2" ratchet to take a smaller socket. You will have to hook them up in series if you want to step your 1/2" down to a 1/4" socket, or if you have a 3/8" socket to begin with you will be able to step that down directly with the 1/4" adapter. It would have been nice if there was an adapter in the set to step a 3/8" up to an 1/2" socket, but maybe I'm the only one in the world who would want to do that.
These are nicely chrome plated and with minimal care should last multiple lifetimes.
