Socket Accessories

Socket Accessories are pieces of equipment that offer increased versatility and flexibility to your existing socket set. The applications that these accessories can cover include extending the length or reach of sockets, making them more adaptable to confined and awkward spaces, or to protect or repair them. They are a more cost-effective way of getting the most out of your hand tools without the need to purchase newer and more expensive units.


What types of socket accessories exist?


There is a range of different accessories available and each of them has a unique purpose. Some of the more common ones are:


  • Extension bars – they offer extended lengths in a variety of sizes and can come as straight, wobble or flexible extension bars. Flexible and wobble extension bars can easily allow better and more flexible access to fasteners that are angled or in awkward spaces that can’t be reached with a straight extension or deep socket
  • Torque multipliers – they will have a stated ratio that delivers the given ration via an internal system of gears
  • Socket adapters or converters – allow connection of a turning tool with a drive that is bigger or smaller than the drive size of the socket
  • Universal joints – allow the socket or extension bar to be able to move in any direction with great flexibility, while the ratchet or rotational movement can be transferred through the universal joint
  • Ratchet renewal kits – recondition or repair your damaged ratchet, which offers a more cost-effective than purchasing a whole new ratchet
  • Socket rails and clips – used to securely store loose sockets and stops them from going missing. Socket clips need to match the drive size of the socket for them to be secured

What tools can Socket Accessories be used with?


Socket accessories can be used with most tools if they have the same fitting connector or drive size. They are most commonly used with ratchet spanners, impact or power tools, torque wrenches and more.


Who uses these kinds of accessories?


Socket accessories are most commonly used by mechanics, engineers and DIY enthusiasts for a variety of maintenance and repair applications whether at home or in industry.
