I primarily purchased this socket to finish a set. Most of my old sockets are 12 point, old and worn. I just felt that it was time, for once in my life to purchase a new set of sockets. I chose the Craftsman Easy to Read for a number of different reasons: Of course they are easy to read, the Craftsman name, the forever (or lifetime) warranty and the fact that Sears is so close to my house.
All of my tools get used and used hard. I'm not afrais to abuse them and this socket is no different. It'll take any punshment I give it and keep on going!
Worse thing to happen is when your working on a car and you don't have the correct size socket and it's twice as bad when you have it but you don't have it in deep well size. Then your screwed or have to put a wrench on it if you can and if you can it's going to take extra time. Sears makes it easy they have the tools and there very quality tools with the best warranty. Exchanging them is easy you walk in with broken tool and walk out with new one and you don't have to wait a week for a tool guy to come the next week me they make it easier I live 30 min away from I can order and pick it up on my time and there order and pick up process is very customer friendly
High quality, polished chrome, large readable number, High quality steel. All qualities backed by a lifetime guarantee with a craftsman name...not to mention,it is a socket that will be used over and over again, by the home mechanic, who works on older cars and trucks made before 1990. Which is the reason why I bought it.
This is just what I wanted. Made in the USA with a convenient size label and a lifetime (no questions) warranty that takes care of business. Prefer the 6 pt as I don't run across many other fasteners.
