This is an awesome, versitile tool.. It turns, it swivels, good in hard places. Every tool lover should have..
The back of the ratchet head is plastic, the collar that switches left or right at the top of the handle is plastic, the in and out yankee part is very stiff and chrome plated, which means it will come off with wear. I think they need to redesign. Maybe if they had made the whole thing out of stainless it would work better. I can see a lot of returns and exchanges because of breaking and chrome pealing off from wear. This looks to be a six month tool if you use it regularly. It does have reversing capability on the ratchet head as well as the collar. the reversing ability on the collar is for when you turn the ratchet strait 180 degrees and want to use the handle like a ratcheting screwdriver.
One of the best ratchet I’ve used for it’s price. Very useful for any small or big project. Swivel head makes it easy to adjust and maneuver when needed. The kids extension helps a lot for better leverage also. It’s worth it if you ask me.
