For the last several years, it appears that Stanley has manufactured Husky tools for Home Depot. The tools, especially the ratchets and wrenches, were very lack-luster. The hand tool section at Home Depot was a pretty big disappointment to me. I have thousands of dollars of Mac and Snap On tools, but I am always building smaller kits for our work trucks, mobile kits, etc. Being spoiled by Snap On fine tooth ratchets has made me a pretty harsh critic. Then, one day I was at home depot and just needed a spare socket. So I go over to the tool isle and I did not recognize it. Everything was different in the wrench and socket area. When did they get these AMAZING 72 tooth thin head quick release ratchets!!!??? Holy Smokes!! Look at these sockets! Large embossing like gear wrench, as a matter of fact, almost exactly like gearwrench. It looks like Apex Tool Group, the company that makes Gearwrench, is now making Husky tools. All I have to say is----THANK GOODNESS! These new hand tools are amazing. I will be buying HUSKY 72 tooth ratchets and sockets to replace any craftsman, duralast, and older husky stuff I have. Yeah, that stuff still has value, but I just do not want it at all. The feel of a 72, 84, or even 120 tooth ratchet is addictive and going back to a 36 tooth coarse tooth ratchet seems unbearable, like they are made of stone. Great Job Home Depot and Husky for upping your game. Serious tool people notice. I sure did. A 10 minute trip to the Depot to pick up a few things turned into 2 hours as I mentally inventoried all the different new sets offered, figured out price per tool of the sets on the fly, and ended up buying this 38 piece set. I just wanted the ratchet, but why pass up the free large embossed sockets that I can replace one of my old Easco sets with. Great stuff. I highly recommend you go browse the hand tool isle at home depot soon. The old stuff is out, and the new stuff is fabulous!

I usually love to find flaws in everything but with this there's practically nothing to complain about. The sockets are great, the wrench is great and the case is great. The only thing I could complain about is the screwdriver. Not that there's anything wrong with it, it's just useless to me. I have an actual screwdriver set that i use and the bit driver just doesn't have any use to me, i think they just throw them in there to up the number of pieces. I was originally looking at a Kobalt or Craftsman set of sockets and debating the options but just stumbled upon this one on accident today and didn't give it a second thought. I would rather Husky over those two brands any day. All three say they have a lifetime warranty but the only one that has never questioned me or made it a hassle was Husky and Home Depot. This set was cheaper and even without the screwdriver set it had more pieces than the other two. Best deal on the market, don't wait to buy one. Just do it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ryan good set to keep in your vehicle
I purchased this tool set and I am very glad I did. I have a truck and it fits underneath the seat nicely. I have it incase something comes loose or if I need to fix something. I have had bad luck with other brands of sockets and especially ratchets. The sockets are nicely chrome plated and the measurements are easy to read. They are also organized nicely in the tray.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RickPA Very Good Quality for the Price
Picked up two of these 38 piece mechanics tool sets today. The quality is excellent for the price. The ratchets are quick release as stated . The sockets are etched with large numbers , making them easy to see what size they are in the case. The only negitive I see, is there is no handle built in the carring case.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sh0ckTVnow Great Kit
I picked up this kit for use in applying light parts on my jeep wrangler (mirrors, side steps, hard top add/remove, etc...). Handy little lit for the simple stuff. Also great for small motor parts (lawn mower, go carts...) Pick one up. For its value it can't be beat and the Sales Associates told me that due to the brand, Home Depot will stand behind it always with their store warranty.
