Don't bother with Rolson tools the metal they make the tools with is extremely soft and breaks on a stubborn nut or bolt.

Almost worth it's weight in scrap....

I would think for setting up the kids bikes / scooters on Christmas day they would be ideal and to keep under the sink, rather than the Teng set for heavy duty stuff...

I have this in the car. Not my main set but with a mini can of WD40 I'm sure it will manage what I throw at it.

​In the car?! If you ever need it in the car it's likely to be a breakdown isn't it? In that case you would want something reliable. In my experience, Rolson tools are anything but reliable!

I have had one of these sets for years and it's fine for simple and undemanding tasks. My Bahco set is better but it gets far less action as I don't want to get it grubby

I've got one in my car, just ordered another for my other car. Nothing wrong with the one I've got. It's a fiver! Why bother to comment.....

if its gets any colder in here you wont need it , you will just freeze your nuts off!

I have a rolson socket set, for the undemanding uses I need them to they are great. Thanks OP.

I have a similar set to this by the same company and what I can't work out even to this day is this .... they supply you with a socket wrench for the medium sockets but yet all the sockets are for small wrenches.

All that you can use the sockets on is the screwdriver handle.

​Because it's terrible! Why would you say "why bother to comment"? I'm as entitled to air my opinion as much as you are.

Yes. Also use it for other bits and bobs when out and about. Yes they are cheap sockets, but cheap sockets are better than no sockets.
Taking my full kit will fill my boot cost me petrol and have the potential to be stolen.
I have a tow rope and some jump leads an extendable tyre wrench and a first aid kit too. But if I crash into a tree at 60mph the first aid kit will likely be pointless so maybe not worth having.

TBH I'd sooner have no sockets than a cheap unreliable set. What happens when that socket slips and starts to round that nut off? What happens when it breaks and drops down into your engine? What happens when your kid is fixing their bike and it breaks and hits them in the eye? Just spend the extra and buy a set that will last you.

Fantastic socket set for those who need one.
Useless for those who intend to use one.

Well cheap ones are far more likely to round the socket than the nut, where as an expensive hard one will round the nut. But choosing the correct socket is always useful. As for snapping the socket wrench, expensive or cheap if your doing this you shouldn't be using a socket wrench first but a breaker bar.

But in reality when you think about the applications where you would use this out on the road it should be fine. Adjusting the tensioner for a belt, the nut that holds the coil pack in, removing the battery strap. I'm not expecting people to replace a calliper or do a clutch change by the side of the A82!

Or you could just sit in the cold for hours waiting for the AA. For me I'll spend my £5 and take my chances.

​I've often found cheap sockets to be a poor fit. I've even come across a set that were wildly misshapen internally. Hard or soft any slippage will result in wear on the fixing.

Who said anything about snapping the ratchet? A poor cast socket can shatter with minimal force let alone sticking a breaker bar on one. Then there is the ratchet mechanism and the retainer bearing. Many of the reviews mention these failing and that introduces the possibility of small parts finding their way into your engine. Not to mention the socket falling off ratchet or extension because the retaining bearing has dropped out.

Even for the jobs you mention if the ratchet mechanism or a socket broke you could end up with a partially dismantled car on the side of the road with no way of putting it back together. You can take your chances if you want but I'd soon add the price of pizza and buy a Halfords Advanced set.

A rubbish quality if you read Amazon reviews
