This new socket set from Laser Tools, part number 7636, is specifically designed to offer improved access to hard to reach fuel line connections. For example, injector connectors can be buried under a maze of pipework and fittings and it can be a major task to get a positive grip onto the hex whether tightening or loosening off.
The tool is 3/8 inch drive and features two spring loaded joints to let you get down and past any obstructions. The sockets are of the open design that lets you slip them over the fuel line and down onto the hex connector. The sockets are simply connected to the tool by pressing out the retaining pin with your thumb, fitting the socket, then replacing the pin.
There are eight socket sizes provided: 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 15mm, 16mm and 17mm, all black phosphate treated for corrosion and abrasion resistance. All fit into a shallow blow mould case that fits neatly into the tool chest tray.
