Brilliant tools I got a bahco ratchet set didn’t realise the difference till I handled and used these compared to the diy ratchets


Expired up to £14.66 now


Not surprising that it looks similar to the Snap-On ratchet screwdriver, Bahco and Snap-On are actually part of the same company since 2005, SNA Europe. I have a Bahco ratchet socket set and it's a really nice piece of kit, they seem to make very good quality stuff.


Thanks op!! Ordered! (y)


Bahco tools is what most of the guys like Offshore, they are a great mftr I have this veeyscrewdriver and it’s great, I also purchased this which compliments the tool https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06XTXB576/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Used HANDTOOLS15 and got it for 157. It was a bit cheaper than this (148 with an email code in May) so may want to wait if you're not needing it in a rush


I always buy via website and have it delivered. Trade card works fine on there. It even gets the 3 for 2 offer on the tool trays, if you want 6 sided sockets rather than the 12.


I know colleagues that have been chinned off for trade card discount for sale items, probably a lack of knowledge on the Halfords employees behalf.


These are really good tools but this set looks overpriced to me compared to the 150/170 pieces sets I've bought in the past for under £100. They're fairly comprehensive but obviously there are going to be extra bits and pieces you will need from time to time. Hardly a complaint as it would be true of any set. Although personally it didn't take too long for me to decide that i needed to get 6 sided sockets to replace these 12 sided ones. Mind you if you're not often dealing with rusted nuts and bolts it wouldn't be a problem. ...Also the Allen keys are junk, but you cant argue with the warranty.


I payed £100 for this set in January halfords ar dedley for inflating there prices

I need a good socket set, any suggestions? I thought this would be ok with a lifetime warranty .


Double hex sockets tend to round and damage bolts . Halford ratchets also fall apart/gear wears after a while .


Does the advanced range fit in the industrial tool box that I understand are now discontinued. Got the Halfords industrial unit when it was cheap and wondered if the trays just slot straight in?


£166.50 if you have a trade account.

29.99 gearwrench on ebay




never seen one below a reasonable price (say £30) and actually good. They tend to be shoddily put together with lots of loose parts and play in the drive motor resulting in breakages when trying to apply high torque. The bits are nearly always made of softer metal that will burr very quickly too. However I've had no experience with this set so not voting, just saying it might be cheap for a reason

Yh been there and Screwfix and didn't have it. Ended up buying it on eBay for a 1/4" driver, wasn't expensive. Thanks guys for all the comments.


Bought the same set about 6 years ago and it's been brilliant. Bargiain for anyone looking for some cheap sockets


Have u tried Halfords? They sell individual sockets.


Ebay is the best place for random sockets at a good price. Stick to known brands and you should be fine quality wise. Halfords professional variety are well priced and solid. Teng are a good bet but a bit overpriced. And if you are willing to sell a kidney, Snapon is an option.


True agree, i need something for the kids bikes or when need to do the small odd adjustem etc.

Not snapped mine yet and had a m long scaffold bar on the end. I snapped the wheel nut though (strong) :(


I bought a set of non impact 3/8 deep laser sockets around 25 years ago. Never managed to break one despite spinning them up on a snap on air ratchet. Lost a few over the years and replaced them with snap on as and when. TBH if I was starting out again I wouldn't bother with snap on I'd go for draper expert, bahco or maybe halfords Pro range.


Take it back


I wish they did just a metric set with 200 pieces, I'd never use AF sockets these days . Unless you're into old cars they aren't much use, just makes the set take up more room.

Still got my old battered one without bit storage. New one is (poo) with cheaper plastics. Clearly Stanley has cheapened out & going in the wrong direction as a business. As they say, buy cheap, buy twice with tools.


Yeah I wouldn't bother. I took mine back. Wished I had bought 2 back in the day.


I have one & it’s not great. The lid for the storage compartment keeps coming undone when I’m using it


I've got the original one as well (The bottom doesn't come off to store the bits though, they're all round the collar) my one still works great after years of use. Was thinking about buying this as a spare for a fiver, but sounds like I would be disappointed!


I have an original one bought about 9 years ago which is great. They changed the manufacture of them a few years ago. The latest ones are very poor quality. Ratchet mechanism fails. I bought one and compared side by side. Every element is cheaper.

3 Tonne Ratchet Axle Stands - £20 (now £18 w/code) @ Halfords (free C&C)

*Updated 16th: Use code LIFT10 to get for £18* 3 tonne ratchet axle stand, rated to 1500 kg per stand. Reduced to £20 from £30 which makes them £3.99 CHEAPER then the 2 tonne set

Never had an issue with ratchet type. Used them for years.


Hi these also come in very handy to go with the axle stands Rubber protection pads


I don't know, I think it's just a paranoia thing for me. Maybe they're just as safe as the pin ones. As for peace of mind though, the pin ones are the way forward for me. Whatever works best for you I suppose! (y)


Not sure it's possible to 'slip a link' unless you set them up wrong, in which case it's not the stand's fault. Used the halfords ones for years without issues apart from the relatively tall lowest setting as noted above. As for the design being more dangerous. Why? It's not like you can kick the lever and then the car comes crashing down. All the stands from different brands look like they come out of the same factory in China. Would love to know if Facom or other more expensive stands are any better.


You're not the only one, great deal if they were pin but not risking my body or vehicle just because of a faulty one.

Any chance you can check the trade price on the Halfords torque wrenches please :D


Yeah OK. XD


Both the 12 and 6 point sockets in the Halfords range are more like spline sockets that that traditional flat faced one - the face section is curved ensuring that all of the torque in not placed on the "point" but well back on the face. Even the point is curved. I have a couple of sets of spline sockets - they are excellent at removing any damages fixing as they will grab on to any surface.

10 pc cashback @ Halifax rewards.


Just picked my set up today and I’ll be as honest as I can. I was unsure if these were going to be the same quality as the Makita coloured bits which I’ve been using for 2 years (same set nothing has broken) and this set seems to be of the same quality. The extension part jams quite often when you have the spinny bit on the outside. But this happens on most extensions not just Makita. Overall I’m very impressed and for the price you can’t complain


Haha no worries bud (lol)


Apologies. I missed the 15% off code bit, but still OOS. Thanks for correcting me. Nothing like a bit of correction ;)

Not bad, I am overstocked on 1/2 but not on impact stuff


I bought http://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/tools/tool-kits/halfords-advanced-modular-tray-set-18pc-impact-socket-set last week for £32 with my trade card, these 6 point sockets are superb for the money if you already have a 1/2" ratchet.


I agree mate


I I would maybe live with the imperial sockets, sell them off etc, but then the rest is 12 point this set is ok when either whatever you work on is up to 3 years old or you work on 12point bolts all the time which I doubt...

I’m not talking people out then. I recommend them they are brilliant and good value. I figured if any of mine break I’d just take it in. If they refuse take up with management most places would just give a new ratchet for what it’s worth


If you ever need to change the battery on a Fiat 500 or Ford KA MK2 this will be invaluable. There is practically no access and using a non-ratcheting combination spanner is a lesson in tedium (lol)


To break the ratchet then you are working on an item thats not been oiled or is rusted badly. Tools only snap through miss use or bad thought and planning. ;)


Just got in there before midnight. Thanks OP


My local Halfords are fantastic. They replaced my faulty ratchet spanner on the spot. I religiously only buy Halfords tools for this reason. However they need to expand their range ask pretty much have everything now
