Junk, save your money.


No stock within 100 miles of London. Cold


You will not find reviews from pro mechanics as they use Snap-on etc... It has a 2 year guarantee Please don't use this for wheel nuts (lol)


Why would someone buy these ''tools'' is beyond me.. If you need socket set and want it cheap wait for the halfords sales and you can pick up more or less same kit for the same price. Or...Just pay a bit more and get one of the bahco kits. This is just waste of time/money/nerves and most of all- Absolute Waste of Earths Resources! AVOID! AVOID AVOID!

But was this because it looks pretty and they hadn't tried to remove a stiff wheelnut and snapped the ratchet yet, or rounded off a bolt head because the sockets didn't fit...?

I prefer a deep socket nut set


Love a really good deep nut


Says they are made from Chrome Vanadium Steel. Chrome molybdenum is better because its softer and is less likely to shatter when used with an Impact gun. For general use with a manuel bar these should be fine and protect alloys. As the sizes practically match spark plugs I was disappointed that they wouldn't fit GM plug holes due to extra quickness of the white nylon/plastic walls of the socket. Mine have rubber inserts to protect a spark plug head, may work on other engines. They are fine for the purpose intended and protect the alloy wheels. Good price.

70 reviews on the Halfords site, and 65 of those reviews are 4 and 5 stars, so it can't be that bad, especially for the price.


Bought this last year. Multiple jobs on the bike still going strong


Correct, better to have a cheap tool than no tool.... I have both, if the tool does the job once and serves it's purpose, money well spent.


(lol) (lol) (lol)


Bought this a couple of weeks ago and found that the sockets are in fact made of silver painted cheese.

Too bad the case is very poorly made. Hinges break in no time


Nice to see somebody not giving a smart arse comment. Thanks for the info as I was also curious


200 piece fills in some of the gaps, for example 9mm, 11mm and 18mm ratchet spanners are missing from the 170 piece set. 11mm is particularly important if you work with imperial stuff, as it can be used for the common 7/16th inch.


worked for me when i did it online, just double check the total to pay instore


Discount didn’t seem to work with my trade account.

Halfords socket set - £80 (free C&C)
Found 19th AugFound 19th Aug
Good quality halfords adva socket set

The 170 piece is currently £120. Probably worth spending the extra £40 over this one, which has some surprising omissions (like a 19mm spanner - very common size). The 200 piece set is sometimes on offer as low as £135 - well worth going for if you can wait. You see these Halfords sets all over the place at race meetings. Although there's an impression that "pro engineers only buy Snap-on" it's just not true. I've met a number of pro race mechanics who use Halfords. Perhaps they keep Snap-on in the workshop and take Halfords with them, but they're certainly happy to use the Halfords stuff. Surprising thing is that Halfords don't offer a metric-only set. For many people, the imperial stuff is a waste of space and money, though personally as the owner of a (mostly) imperial race car, it's great.


Could have got 50 extra (170) for £102 a few days ago. Expired now, mind you.


Their "was" prices are getting increasingly ludicrous. This is a good set for £80, but no way on earth is it worth £220.


I'm waiting for the smaller set to come on sale again! Lost my previous set.

A lot of this Von Haus junk suddenly appearing on here but for occasional use, I suspect the sockets are probably ok.

No Del boys in your area then


What a hypocrite. You're complaining about Homebase not updating their website within a few hours of an error being highlighted, yet you seem unwilling to answer a straight question when it's put to you. Homebase are unlikely to have access to IT personnel at the weekend. What's your excuse? I'll remind you of the question just in case it slipped your mind. Shouldn't be too difficult to answer. It doesn't involve either state secrets or personal data. "Seeing as you've raised carparts4less, perhaps you'd like to post details of how you track down all these "deals" from their website, as most mere mortals, me included, have never been able to find anything other than through the reg no search. :( As for cp4l customer service, it's non existent. If, and when you get through to "Rebecca", the message is always the same. I know people who are still waiting for items ordered 6 weeks ago. No replies to emails. Virtually impossible to get through to "Rebecca" on chat unless you've got all day to sit waiting. So what's your secret?"

This guy looks so much like TEALC! Looks like a mixture of fakes and Originals. Let's be honest DeWalt are the company to fake! Have you broken them??? 3 year gaurantee with these little beauties, as long as their not "FAKE"


My sets ok and there no way it’s fake lol


I've been using this set for a couple of month now, bought on 26 April. They're absolute junk. One one occasion a pz2 bit broke after only 3 screws, I was drilling 50mm screws into 18mm plywood. Someone said in his comment that they're fake I'm afraid he might be right

"£40 Sick and Collect" - Not heard of throwing up before you collect :p


That's strange, I've also have a McAlister socket set (I've previously posted the deal) and I also have a Halfords professional, and the Halfords are far and away the better set. Not slating your deal OP, it is hot and for £ you obviously get more in this than you would a Halfords Professional.

haha claims to be CV, had to return mine as it wasn't any harder then aluminium :)


Yea not one for the professionals but if you only need it 3 or 4 times per year for the basic household jobs, I'm hoping it'll last a lifetime. 3 years isn't too bad for this price.


Have the same set for over 3 years. My box clips are flimsy and can be undone while carrying. Small sockets are flying everywhere inside if no foam insert is in place inside. Tools are of average quality - perfect for basic motoring service and maybe a bit more.


Plenty of good reviews though. Should be ok for the basics


Few poor reviews regarding the quality of the sockets. Cold.

Draper is about as bad as it gets, And checkout the ratchet, The worst sort.


Bertie (5) & Ria (4) decided, 5 deals back to "help" brighten up the picture deal landscape, with their own ideas of what I am posting & finding, best one yet is the Triple QX drawing, took an age for one of them to do it, plus they get a mention in our OP's if they help out.. just hope they do not start "charging" for their service! :S That is good value, I needed something that had what this set has got in it and a 1/2 drive, or would have gone for something like that one, still think some are getting carried away with what this deal is not, its a £65 selling everywhere socket set, for half the price with free delivery! :D


Anyone with Costco membership these may be worth a look less pieces then this I am not 100% on price it was £23 excluding vat but a lot of gear for the money I think that the ratchet is most likely to fail as overtightened nuts or bolts should be undone using a breaker bar as provided in both these sets


Heat for the "Paint" skills on the pic.... art college or what!


LMAO, heat just for the annotated picture! (lol)

I'll bow to your experience on them, all I can go by is the high praise they always got and NO bemoaners. Now it seems moaning about poor quality is common


What a @#&* you are. So when you're assembling your garden table you use your £200 socket set to do up 10 bolts rather than a cheap and cheerful set that you don't mind breaking or snagging up. Fine you you @#&*face


Looks like they just put the price back up. Gonna mark the deal as expired. The website managers probably just come in to hundreds of orders lol and have decided to whack it up again.


Wow, at that price I woulda got a few.
