      Broke after 5 minutes of use
      Bought a brand new set of socket adapters this morning, and often 5 minutes of light use, the keeper ball fell out of the 3/8" adapter. Very disappointed.

        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.

              Stay away from these!
              have returned to the store evert other day because these broke 6 times since I bought them
                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.
