Carrying the best range of Socket wrenches we have the right socket wrench sizes and accessories for you

Available in a variety of ratchet sizes a ratchet wrench is one of the hand tools you will continually reach for when working on your car. Whether reaching for the spark plug sockets for a tune up or getting stuck in with impact sockets we have the correct socket and ratchet sizes to suit the biggest and smallest jobs.

If you are purchasing a ratchet on its own you will either have the required socket sizes or you will be looking to add to your tool inventory with the right sockets for the job. But first we will look at the ratchet sizes and what they offer in terms of use.

Ratchet sizes and what suits best

When looking at a 1/4 inch square drive ratchet you will naturally be looking at smaller sockets to tackle smaller fastener sizes as well as nuts and bolts that requires less torque to tighten. These ratchets are great for tight spaces and most will suit a standard socket yet impact sockets and sockets that required higher torques will not feature in this range of sizes.

Stepping up for this smaller size is the all round 3/8 inch square drive ratchet. This ratchet will enable you to utilise more torque when you tighten and loosen nuts. This sized ratchet spanner is one of the most common type of ratchet wrench and the drive sizes of this can handle loosening any nut or bolt on your vehicle or project.

Going for the the largest of the standard drive sockets will see you using a 1/2 inch square drive ratchet. Although many varying sizes in ratchets this size will give you the widest range of interchangeable sockets available. Whether it be deep sockets, impact sockets, pass through sockets or just standard sockets this drive size can handle a tremendous beating. The beauty of this tool drive size is that you can confidently use breaker bars for that additional torque and force. A breaker bar will be the last thing to snap so the largest drive type it can be attached to the better.

A good ratchet handle will incorporate a ratcheting mechanism comprised of 64, 72 and even 144 teeth meaning with a higher tooth count you only need 2.5 degrees of movement to loosen or tighten a fastener. When it comes to sockets six point sockets naturally provide six points of contact against the nut or bolt. The majority of standard sizes in sockets are 12 point and these are fine for DIY applications but provide less grip on nuts and bolts than six points. Nut and bolt heads are more prone to rounding off when using more torque and 12 point socket sizes.

Repco stock not just ratchets but a great range of socket sets

Stocking not just different types of sockets and socket wrench sizes we also carry a wide variety of socket sets at Repco. The beauty of purchasing a socket set is that it enables you to have both the ratchet as well as a selection of sockets, extension bars and adaptors to suit. Repco stock a large selection of socket sets in both metric socket sizes and imperial measurements to encompass the most common sizes of nuts and bolts you would find working on your car. Most automotive manufacturers now use metric measurements so it is always best to get the most metric sizes available.
