I like the quick release thingie,Great find

Nice little kit for the car for emergencies.

Better than the halfords set?

I bought a similar cheapo set a while back and I sent it back. The ratchet was so thick it was completely impractical for getting into tight spaces and the finish on the sockets was absolutely rubbish. Some of the knurlings on them were only partially done and were off centre. Only buy this if you are going to use occasionally otherwise spend that bit extra. Tools are a long term investment so choose wisely!

Personally I'd buy the halfords sets over this all day long but this set has a few additional bits whereas the halfords doesn't so it depends on what you'll be using it for.

Just my opinion for what it's worth

Personally think it's not too shabby. They last a lifetime, grip the flat edges (72 teeth gubbins), just metric...(why do I need Imperial with my modern stuff? I don't personally) Quick onny offy doo dah!
If I need to get into a tight space...I'll just buy a right angled adaptor for a tenner or ask your Mum!

Tiz a preference thang....Horses for courses

This one is the "number 1 best seller" at £17.70, 25pc set amazon.co.uk/Bah…CA8

Bahco SL25 Socket Set 25 Piece 1/4 Inch Drive

Matt chrome plated
Chrome vanadium
Case High Density Polythene
Ratchet 1/4 inch
Robust

£17.50 from a 3rd party seller. No expert with these things or I'd add an opinion

There really is no comparison when the Bahco can be had for such a ridiculous price. None.

Bahco one is a mini version. Sockets only go up to 13mm.

I've had this ratchet for around 10 years, no idea where I got it, somehow ended up in my tool chest at work.

The one I have is black and grey but otherwise identical.

Mechanism is much smoother than my Halfords, Britool and Teng 1/4 drives, probably on par with my Facom fine tooth.

Can't speak for the sockets, but the ratchet is actually really good.

Stay clear of none land line sellers

Didn't look at the sellers details to be honest, just went by reviews and the fact it's "Fulfilled by Amazon" as being some sort of guarantee of stock and delivery.

I wouldn't be too concerned, really.
