Mini ratchets from Laser Tools can allow the use of a standard socket in situations where a screw, bolt or other fastener is difficult to access.
Three sizes are available: a 1/4in. drive (part number 8077), and 3/8in. drive (part number 8078) or a 1/2in. drive version (part number 8079). You can also purchase all three as a set (part number 8080).
The 1/4in. drive version is 48mm long with a head depth of just 9mm; it can apply a maximum torque of 78 Nm. The 3/8in. drive example is 62mm long with a head depth of 11mm. Maximum torque is 245 Nm. The 1/2in. drive ratchet is also 62mm long with a head depth of 11mm and can also apply a maximum torque of 245 Nm. All the mini ratchets feature smooth 72 teeth ratchet mechanisms and are ideally used with a combination of extension bar and torque wrench.
