socket set

I have had this set for 6 years now, and they are superb.

Only a few bits missing from the set............step ups, imperial allan keys and a few socket sizes.

The lifetime guarantee actually works, as i had to step up a small socket and cracked it..........(it was nothing to do with the quality, should have got correct socket for the job) took it to my local halfords, without a receipt, and they changed it no problems.

I have the same set and have abused it something wicked but its still going!

Only thing I don't like is the box - the ratchet ring spanners are a pain to put back. I have a bit of towel between the two halves of the box to stop all the little sockets falling out when you close it up and carry it around.

Not tried the guarantee yet but glad to hear it actually works.

I have some Halfords professional spanners and they are top notch.

Sometimes they have them in the sale :wink:

Had a set for about 5 years,the smallest ratchet breaks from time to time.Easy to fix and cheap should change for free if you keep proof of purchase.The extension bars are chocolate,i have broke a couple of them.I only use the kit every now and then but on heavy going stuff it does fail,but still good value.
