As a professional mechanic I use my tools daily and they wear out due to the frequent use. I use a mix of Craftsman and Snap on sockets and honestly I couldn't tell you the difference between the two when I am using them. They both wear the same, the chrome plating still chips off the end on both brands, and they both grip the bolts and nuts the same. The only difference that I can tell is that you pay a lot more for the Snap on sockets than the Craftsman. So why pay more for the same quality, buy Craftsman pay less and get the same quality and lifetime warrantee.
Love that these are sold individually!
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.
