Laser Tools has added new mini ratchets to its range to allow for the use of a standard socket in tight situations.
Three sizes are available: a 1/4″ drive (part number 8077), and 3/8″ drive (part number 8078) or a 1/2″ drive version (part number 8079). All three are available as a set (part number 8080), which is supplied in a foam tray designed to sit neatly in the tool cabinet drawer.
The 1/4″ drive version is 48mm long with a head depth of just 9mm; it can apply a maximum torque of 78 Nm.
The 3/8″ drive example is 62mm long with a head depth of just 11mm. Maximum torque is 245 Nm.
The 1/2″ drive ratchet is also 62mm long with a head depth of 11mm and can also apply a maximum torque of 245 Nm.
All the mini ratchets boast smooth 72 teeth ratchet mechanisms and are ideally used with a combination of extension bar and torque wrench. This lets you apply torque settings to hard to reach fasteners.
