Been using these for years and I simply cannot live without them! Oh, how many times have I taken a set of sockets under the car just so I know I'll have the right one when I get there?!? Ever try doing that with loose sockets? When I'm done, they go right back up on the wall to be ready the next time!
The metal socket clips don't move smoothly back and forth on the metal rails. They take a little more time to put the sockets back. They don't keep the sockets in place 100% because the clips are not square drive lugs, and they're out of shape easliy. I think I will need to buy new metal clips from time to time. This means that the cost will be much more in the long run, compared to the plastic version. If I could go back, I would get the plastic socket racks with plastic studs.
One of the few items that are still made in USA by craftsman .these racks do what they’re supposed to and that’s organize your sockets .Ive noticed over a period of time the clips that hold the sockets have a tendency not to hold the sockets as well as they originally did .but those clips can be replaced by purchasing replacement clip bags which I believe carry ten or more replacement clips in each bag.I would still recommend these socket racks cause they do what they’re intended to do at a very reasonable price.Dont forget their still made in USA !!!
Nothing worse than trying to find the right socket among an unorganized tool box. Picked up these on sale for $3.99 a set from Sears. Impressed with the overall construction quality. The metal fasteners are adjustable and you can add more or less. Made my old Craftsman tool box so organized, I decided to give the box a restoration. No more fumbling for the right sized socket and the sockets stay securely in place. Can't beat 'em for the price.
