The pinless swivel design is more robust and can take a bigger beating, but the pin design isn't a lemon by any means. Very good build quality and if needed a lifetime warranty make this an excellent purchase.
Busted at 120 pounds ft-lbs putting on a Caliper Bracket. Not good for high torque loads and continuous torque.
These universal joints are indispensable for suspension work where getting to a fastener may be tight. This allows you to "create" a swivel head socket using your regular impact socket if you haven't invested in a full set of dedicated swivel socket set which can be expensive. This is a VERY economical alternative. I ended up buying 2 of these given how useful they are for toolboxes at home and work.
Easy purchase...unique delivery not to a local Sears store in town
It does exactly what i hoped. It is awesome because it is half the price of competitors and the sacrifice is barley noticeable in its maximum bend angle.
Really good tool
