£200 is a joke it was never worth that and i wouldn't buy it at £99 still too dear.
#2
this is usually £150 not £200.

a good deal at £99 and even better with the 10% discount.

Halford Proffessional are meant to be really good - and i bought them last year for £99 when they were on sale.

Especially with the lifetime guarantee - you can literally break them and Halfords will replace.

They were £200 or £147 (i think) on trade. And they are worth every penny. Until you have to do a job that requires a quality tool you dont realise how much better they are. Worth £100 without a doubt. Bought them a while back and im very happy with them. We use snap-on at work and these are the only things in my price range that come close!

I got a much smaller set 8 years ago now and they are still going strong - easily worth £200. I am no mechanic, a DIY'er but can totally appreciate the quality of these - they simply do not compare with anything you can buy in Argos/Homebase/B&Q etc. Well worth the money IMO!

This line is undoubtedly good quality, so heat added.

HOWEVER...

The Halfords Professional 150 piece Socket Set with Ratchet Spanners includes 45 tooth Racthets for 1/2" 3/8" and 1/4" drives, 6pt Sockets SAE & MM, 6pt Deep Socket in MM, Various 12pt sockets in SAE and MM, 12pt Deep sockets, spark plug sockets, various screwdriver socket bits (Philips, Slotted, Hex, security) Security Socket, Ratchet Spanners, Combination spanners, various extension bars, spinner handle, universal joints amongst other items. The contents of the Halfords professional 150 piece socket/rachet set is constantly under development so the contents may vary in some ways as the set is updated and evolves. Halfords professional tools carry a lifetime guarantee.


There is nothing more annoying that working on a car and finding you looking for a socket and picking up ones that are NOT suitable for your car - so its likely you will keep over 50% of this in a separate box.

It also has no Torx kit - so if you own a Citroen or Peugeot you will need to buy a set of long and standard length attachments for almost every job.

It does include torx , its the "security" bits , also the large torx on 3/8 sockets are there too (for head bolts etc.. ) .
I have this set too , infact i got 2. Bought the first one in 2002 ish , and then got another for a differnt place.

Halfords have no problem in changing these , drop in and they change it for on the spot for you no hassle.
The T45 torx used on head bolts , I break quite a few (used on trucks :P) and halfords down the road mean I have another in my hands in only 5 mins.
I have yet to round off any of the spanners or sockets , even whne using scaffold poles as extensions (like you do ^_^ ). Also none of the ratchet mechs have given the slightest trouble either.

Done a few weeks ago and been this price for ages.
Not worth it imo but no vote.

Halfords Professional range are made by Sykes & Pickavant which in my opinion are just as good if not better than Snap-on, i had a Snap-on ratchet which broke claimed on the suposed Lifetime warranty, Snap-on said they dont make that part so doesn't come under warranty, where Halfords warranty is for the whole thing if it breaks they replace it. :thumbsup:

I concur, others would agree!

I have a Halfords set - not sure if it is the professional one but the torx bits have rusted and the plastic clips holding the case closed have snapped meaning it falls oven and depoists all the sockets on the floor every time you pick it up :(
