1/4 in. Drive 5 in. Swivel Head Ratchet is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool. I need more sizes! I picked this to use in some of hard to reach places while working on cars and other right places. So far this has worked quite well and has more than served it's purposes as needed. This has a swivel head that gives a great range of motion. This works as well as any standard ratchet would. I haven't run into any issues with the range of motion while using this. This a great tool to have on hand. I would highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excessive backdrag Well made ratchet but the backdrag (internal resistance) is very poor. The amount of backdrag makes it hard to unscrew a bolt because it tries to tighten and untighten the bolt after it is broken free. You must apply some pressure to the bolt with your fingers or something else to keep the bolt turning in the proper direction. I went with the Tekton brand unseen because I hoped it would be better than the cheaper HF ratchet, but I think they are both very bad. It would be helpful to disassemble the ratchet head and lube it, but there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to do that. Overall, it is acceptable, but just barely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swivel Head Ratchet This tool is good quality. It swivels when you need it to get it at an angle to tighten or loosen something. It's the right size in your hand to do the job. This is the kind of tool that once you use it, you wonder how you got along without it before, struggling to do a specific job. In case you want to ratchet something that is at an angle or offset, you can move this tool to the correct angle to get the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real Nice Feature's Received this yesterday and put it right to work. This 72 teeth with a swivel head witch makes it extra handy to use. My old ratchet broke a few weeks back, decided to upgrade to this model and I am glad I did makes working on my cars so much easier in the tight spots. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Have not used this brand before but when I do replace other tools, I will look for this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool This 1/4 inch drive, 5 inch long swivel head ratchet is great, it's well made and handy to use. The swivel head feature is the best thing allowing you to swivel 270 degrees and get the job done in a lot of tight places. The Rachel is positive using 72 teeth and the driver lock (ball) is good as well. Nice grip on this tool making it fit securely in your hand.
