Speedy fastener removal in restricted areas 17 April 2024

A new addition to the Laser Tools range is the Off-line Ball-End Socket Adaptor Set consisting of three adaptors in ¼ inch drive, 3/8 inch drive, and ½ inch drive sizes, specially designed for quick fastener removal.

The distinctive wobble ball end design allows for a 10 degree movement, alongside a further 40 degree range of movement in the shaft. With an approximate overall length of 75mm, the socket can be used effectively in restricted areas. 

These adaptors are uniquely designed with a ¼ inch hex shank, designed for quick release chucks to ensure speedy fastener removal. Additionally, each adaptor incorporates an integral magnet, providing self-locking and self-centring capabilities. These tools are ideal for use on automobiles, although Laser Tools highlights that they are not intended for use with impact tools.
