Father’s day gift ideas: Flex sockets
Most dads have a basic socket set and it works just fine for most jobs. But when you’re working in tight spaces or at odd angles, you need a socket with a built-in universal joint. Sure, you can snap a standard universal joint onto an extension bar and then add a socket, but that doubles the length! You don’t have that kind of clearance in tight spaces. A set of flex sockets is the perfect answer. You won’t find a pro without a set of these in their tool box. You can easily spend over $200 for a set made by Snap-On, Mac, or Matco, but these tools will do the job for a lot less. Buy a set for the gearhead in your family.
