Ken-Tool's Twist Socket Set has been named to the Professional Tool & Equipment News (PTEN) magazine's "2010 Top 100 Most Requested Tools"
The Twist Socket allows a technician to remove a damaged hex-head on a bolt or nut by positively gripping into the surface of a damaged bolt head or nut to allow it to be removed by using an ingenious counterclockwise spiral grip surface integrated into the socket. The more force applied to the twist socket, the greater gripping force is delivered against the nut or bolt head.
The Twist Socket grips positively into the surface of a damaged bolt head or nut to allow it to be removed by using an ingenious counterclockwise spiral grip surface integrated into the socket. The mouth of the socket has six or 12 fluted scallops which cradle the damaged hex head, with the spiral grip surface gently tapering toward the center to pull the socket downward as turning torque is applied. As more leverage is applied, a greater gripping force is delivered against the nut or bolt head.
The Twist Socket can be used with a ratchet wrench, a breaker bar or an air-impact wrench. In addition to fasteners, the Twist Socket can be used effectively on difficult to remove pipes, pipe caps, nipples or reducers as well as frozen studs. Consequently, the Twist Socket has a wide range of uses in any automotive or fleet service shop.
The Twist Socket line encompasses a range from light duty, 1/4 -inch (6.35mm) to medium-duty 3/8-inch (9.5mm) to heavy-duty 1/2 -inch (1.3 cm) drive applications. Each socket is precision CNC-machined from SAE 4140 steel, heat treated for added durability, then black oxide coated for corrosion resistance. Each socket has its size prominently stamped at the base of the socket for quick identification. All Twist Sockets are U.S. made and carry a limited lifetime warranty.
- Twist sockets are specifically designed to easily remove damaged, rounded or corroded nuts, wheel lugs, bolts, pipes, pipe nipples or studs.
- Simply place the socket so it barely catches the head of the fastener and turn with an air ratchet, hand ratchet, or breaker bar.
- The unique spiral fluting bites onto the damaged fastener and won't let go.
