Spin Flex Ratchet

This is a really cool ratchet. In addition to a pivoting head, Stanley Proto, Proto Tool, 577-5750, Spin Flex, Ratchetit’s got a spinning handle. So, let’s say you’re removing a spark plug. Just fit the socket and loosen. Then turn the handle at a 90 to the head and just spin the plug out by wobbling the handle. This is the exact same ratchet that the tool companies sell for $150. It’s made by Stanley Proto. I have one and love it. I featured it in The Family Handyman Pro Tools special. It’s a great addition to your tool box.
