It's light weight and i love the quick release.
I've had my 3/8" ratchet for over ten years, over which time I used it on at least a weekly basis. FInally, the ratcheting mechanism showed some signs of wear. I took it in to get it replaced and found the new ones were made in china. The salesman mentioned he had many of the new 3/8 and 1/2 returned due to failures. At the same time, the price is still the same!
This is sad. I always went for the USA made Craftsmans hand tools. Now I'll have to find a new company to buy ratchets.
This is a replacement for a ratchet I got 10 years ago which was a replacement for a ratchet I had for 40 years. The mechanism is sloppy just like the last one. I don't expect it to last more than 10 years which is sad since I only use it occasionally.
I called to get replacement tools for Craftsman items that were faulty. I was treated like a criminal. Instead of sending replacement tools, I was given points to purchase the tools on Shopyourway......what a joke. I couldn't purchase any of the items that needed to be replaced because they weren't available and I had to pay the freight to ship them.....truely the worst customer service ever. No wonder Sears/Kmart is going out of business.
