Handy!
No Brainer addition to your impact driver. All sizes have held up well and fit all my sockets.

    Broke, just like other reviews
    Disappointed in Milwaukee... Usually I love Milwaukee tools, but this 1/2 socket adapter snapped on me while installing lug nuts, before they were even tight.

      Not for impact.
      First time using the 1/2 adapter with my FUEL M18 1/4" impact and it snapped. Supposed to be meant for use with an impact, but nope! I ended up breaking the nut free by hand with a short breaker bar with minimal effort.

          I can't believe this is Milwaukee product
          I just bought this adapter and it snap-off on second drive. Took me sometime to get the broken piece out. Own other Milwaukee tool for more than 30 years and never has this terrible experience before. I think Milwaukee can do better than this or just don't sell it.

            Horrible
            First time using the 3/8” and it broke. Using the Dewalt DCF 887 Impact Driver. Returned it and replaced with the same, thinking I must have gotten a defective one and again it broke after the third bolt. I do NOT recomend it.

              LIght duty only
              You can probably use these adapters up to about 125 ft-lbs of torque. Go above that and they'll snap right off at the head. If all you're hoping to do is spin nuts after loosening them with a breaker, they'll do that job. Milwaukee's marketing implies that these adapters will do more than that, and for that they get a low rating.

                                                    Hi David, thank you for telling us about your experience with the Milwaukee SHOCKWAVE Impact Duty 1/4 in. Hex Shank Socket Adapter Set.

                                                      Just what I needed
                                                      They are just what I needed to connect my sockets to my impact wrench. They seem sturdy and the ball is tight. They say impact rated but I'm probably not going to stress them too much. I just used them to help me remove ballasts from some warehouse lights. Much quicker then my ratchet or screwdriver.
