Sometimes, especially for the traveling mechanic, carrying a traditional ratchet is overkill. For a lighter-weight and less bulky option when it comes time to use our socket-style tools we've built our Pro Socket Handle, article 190.8/2BI-US.
Designed to fit any 1/2" drive socket, the Pro Socket Handle offers enough length (250mm tip-to-tail) for good leverage while still being compact enough to carry with you in your tool roll or tool case. It's about half the weight of our 190.1/ABI ratchet, so it'll save you half a pound in your travel tool kit.
We made it from chrome-vanadium steel for high strength and chrome plated it for corrosion prevention. A spring-loaded ball bearing keeps whatever tool you're using from falling off. The comfortable bi-material handle gives a secure grip when trying to free that stuck cassette lock-ring.
