What are the measurement standard options within Sockets?
There are a few options when selecting the measurement standards for your tools. Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) sockets are designed to help you work on American-made vehicles. Metric sockets are ideal for working on imported vehicles. Metric sockets' sizes are measured in millimeters. Typically, the most frequently used types are 10mm sockets and 36mm sockets. USS or United States Customary Units is commonly used in the United States. This system bases yards as the unit of length. Within Sockets, the measurement standard options include SAE.
What is the difference between a socket wrench and a ratchet?
Sockets and ratchets are both used to make a combination tool. The main difference is that they are much harder to get the job done when used alone than when used together. It is much easier to tighten and loosen fasteners using both tools together. Check out our most reviewed product, the 3/8 in. Drive x T20 Long Torx Bit Socket.
