Yup, bought one dashcam but two hard wire kits and had them fitted in Halfords Speke. I can't fault the fitting which was neat and tidy with no trace of violence.


10% discount doesn't apply over Black Friday deals.


The silver set is more expensive with a trade card but the limited edition black set is £130. If you know anyone that works for Greggs there’s an extra 10% so £117


Snippets from Whammerhead's post Discount is supplied to British Cycling members with a valid British Cycling Membership card and discount voucher. 10% off is valid on any cycling-related purchase, excludes gift vouchers and Halfords Autocentres. you can try your luck BUT all the local halfords near me have REALLY tightened up on use of the BC card discount. they no longer have the barcode on the sheet of barcode discounts they have by the till & instead you have to login to your BC account to get a voucher ( valid for that month last time i did it ) that has said barcode on it - either print or display on ur phone for em to scan ) also the terms of the BC discount have also changed too as it NO LONGER states ANY purchase from halfords & as your post clearly shows, it now states on CYCLING Related purchases :( it was fun while it lasted but alas they finally got wise & closed the loophole - still may be worth trying to say the tools will be used on a pushbike but i dont think it will work somehow. on a related note for this thread, i really miss my 200 bit socket set, bought it a couple of years ago ( probably the same price but WITH BC discount so around the 120 mark paid ) sold it on to my nephew when he started a mechanic training course & regretted it even though i never had used it since buying it ( stuck to using my even older 150 bit set instead but did later find a few tools were needed for later jobs that the 150 lacked but the 200 had. mmmm, do i bite nd get a 200 again or do i just live with my 90 / 120 / 150 ( well 154 now as it got recased under warranty and the new case differed by 4 tools so i bought the missing 4 torx bits on ebay & tucked the extra 4 bits from the old set into various places about the new case lol ) & 170 bit sets - cant) be arsed lugging a set about if needed so have a set at work, set at home set in the car, set in the bike shed etc lol i have to agree that the imperial side of the box does not get used that often BUT it has been a lifesaver for me on occasion as i have found the need to use one or 2 on stuff i have been tinkering with where the metric side of the box was either not big enough or too big between sockets the next size up but an imperial socket fit like a charm ( might have been OK if the metrics had a couple of .5 sizes in there ( 8.5 / 9.5 etc ) instead of some of the imperials but on the same note, ( but on the other hand they might have already, they are just labelled up in imperial numbers lol ) as for warranty then as mentioned, so far only had 2 failures, 1 of which was the hidge on the really old 150 bit case, they swapped it out for a newer version case, also one of the torx bits fell apart ( T45 or T50 ) but they just swapped it out from the display model no problem - the torx bit came out of the socket it was secured into after being used with an impact gun to remove a set of rather stubborn bolts.

Mention this to Amazon my friend. (y)


Bought bacho hex keys off Amazon a month ago. They're already rusted up. Kept in the same tool bag in the back of my car (same environment) as a cheap set I've had for a year. I'm sure they're fake.

There are no bits for an impact driver provided in this set but these sockets are intended for use with an impact wrench: 7 x 1/2" Drive Impact Socket 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23mm Impact drivers are usually used for screws and impact wrenches are usually used for sockets. You can use adaptors of course but they're less efficient.


Can these be used in an impact driver?


That's what I thought until I bought a Caterham. Then I was very glad for them!


Worth having a set of spline sockets when working with damaged fasteners.

Only a tool would not need these spanners

Serious question: why most of these sets never have a size 15? I swear I must have checked half a dozen different sets lately and the 15 is always missing! :/

Funny how this set was the same price a few weeks prior to this deal and went to like -100°. Personally would get a Bahco set at this price. All 6 point sockets, better quality ratchets and spanners and no useless SAE sockets that realistically not many will ever use. Plus you can get it for £150 on eBay, even less if you do what I did and wait for a 20% off code.


The trade card isn't a percentage discount, its a set price meaning the trade price and regular price are independent from each other. Sometimes the trade price is more than if they have a sale on lol. This set used to be £135 on trade, however more recently gone up to £150. The regular price has fluctuated up and down a lot with sales etc. while the trade hasn't budged at all.


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.

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 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?

Fair enough - your world is obviously different to a lot of others. Ta for your vote though :)


I would need to drive accross town to collect, lose time+waste fuel. Better do 1 hour overtime at work and order 2 sets from eBay + free delivery. Some people really do not know how this world works. Yeah, deal is only good for those living near the shop/branch.


If you read the description its C&C ( click & collect ) if you cba collecting then yea delivery charge applies over and above a tenner. Probably best if you dont bother at all - save a spanner ( the aggro ) (y)

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.

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.

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


I bought 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
