Boot ones are usually short and have no leverage and as to this it's branded as streetwise. I would pay the little extra if indeed it was Laser branded else I could go to Wilko and get one for a fiver.

Heat. Everyone should have a good wheel spanner. The supplied wrench can fail like mine did. I have one of these already but I loaned it out only to get a flat tyre in the middle of town the following day. The supplied wrench failed on the last nut. Note to self. Don't loan kit to folks to tight to buy there own!

when using the Google compare link it comes up as Laser so assumed it was rebranded Laser

Not for girls lol. My car has 21mm nuts so no good for me. These also have a slight design flaw. The wrench should be a true 90 degree angle towards the head but isn't. Consequently if a nut is really tight after been tightened with a windy gun, because of the obtuse angle of the wrench it can slip off. Design would be better with longer socket and 90 degree wrench. They are all made like this I know but it doesn't mean to say it's right.

too easy to over tighten the wheel nuts with these long handled versions. Maybe OK to slacken off tight nuts but don't over tighten on re-fitting.

Completely agree with smartguy1

get a proper right angle with a short extender

There is a logic to the angle, a shorter head means the joint is less likely to twist and the angle is to compensate for it's proximity to the wheel.

These look no different than the Wikinson/ Wilco. ones which are by the way cheaper.
Anything telescopic will buckle and bend.
You would be better of spending a few quid more on breaker bar with a half inch to put your socket set on.
I picked up a 2ft one at a car fair for a tenner but eBay sell then in lots of different lengths.

It's worth investing in a torque wrench if you're doing mechanical work on your car.

you should only ever tighten the bolts with the wrench in the collapsed, short position.
Avoiding overtightening is exactly why you want a telescopic wrench like this rather than a 3ft breaker bar in the car!
