About Socket & Socket Sets
The proper way of undoing and doing up nut and bolts are with spanners and sockets. Use a six-point socket (hexagonal shape) if the nut or bolt needs to be torqued to a high value. In all other circumstances a six-point or 12-point (with twice as many internal flats) can be used. Usually, six-point sockets are cheaper and less likely to slip than 12-point sockets, but do not offer as many rotational angles. A socket handle can fit to many different sized sockets and makes reversing possible in confined spaces.
Why Do I Need Sockets and Socket Sets?
The first choice in doing up or undoing a nut or bolt is a socket, even before the commonly-used ring spanner. A Socket Set effectively provides the same functionality as multiple conventional tools in a compact bundle.The racheting mechanism ensures that you can get the job done faster and easier without constantly needing to repositon the tool. Even recessed fittings can be reached when you use a deep socket, which could be near impossible to otherwise access. Sockets offer far less possibility of rounding a nut or bolt than if a conventional wrench is used.
