This appears to be a very good price for this make and type of breaker bar compared to all of the other tool competitors. Also with good reviews.
Worth adding an extra 5p + on another item to get the free postage.

Just put a ring spanner on the end of your regular ratchet and save £20. If it’s REALLY stuck I keep a piece of old curtain pole and slide that over the ratchet. One time on my friends 1967 Mini Clubman we used his mums washing line pole on a 1/2” snap on ratchet to crack the hub nut.
You don’t need one of these.
I have a draper expert ratchet version. Its basically the same. Exact same design and handle. Quality is poor. Yes the extending feature and flex head is handy but there is tons of slop in everything compared to pro tools or even halfords.

It is cheap though and liveable for DIY.
Some of the reviews are suspicious. Trust me that handle will not stand up to brake clean. Mine certainly hasn't and it's for DIY use only.
The words "breaker" and "ratchet" should never be used in the same sentence ... This will be ok for a couple of uses then you'll be picking your knuckles up off the concrete!
The ak7315 model is £58.95 in Halfords, looks the same as this. Based on that this is hot, however Halfords have their own (non extendable version) for £15.99, which has a lifetime guarantee, which I would get instead.

Breaker bar and ratchet don't go together. A ratchet is not suitable for the amount of force that can be applied to a breaker bar. Just used a standard breaker bar and finish off using a ratchet if needed.....If you value your fingers.

Agreed, I've always done the same, have a 2 foot length pole handy to slide over and give leverage. works every time
The extending ratchet does save time though. Example.

Brake job. Cracks the 20mm+ bolts for the pad carrier on octavia vrs then shorten it to undo the bolt. They are on pretty damn tight from factory.

Otherwise you would need a breaker bar and ratchet etc or impact wrench. And for someome who has actually broken these ratchets they almost always break at the pivot point or drive end. Very rare for the gears to fail on a round head design. Guess what, that's exactly how a breaker bar fails.

Its just these cheap one the fit and finish is sloppy comapred to pro tools.
