pakrachett_gearpatrol11The name may be more than a little corny, but that doesn’t detract from this tool’s ingenious form factor. Made to be an all in one grab and go ratchet solution, the PakRatchet stores seven sockets along with 3′ extension inside its handle. The tool’s drive is formed from high-toque composite that won’t conduct or corrode over time, and both metric and imperial versions are available depending on your needs in 1/4″ or 3/8″ sizes. In terms of sockets, the metric PakRatchet ships with 10mm, 11mm, 13mm, 14mm, 15mm, 17mm, and 19mm metric sockets, while the imperial ships with or 3/8?, 7/16?, 1/2?, 9/16?, 5/8?, 11/16?, and 3/4? options. All six point sockets are made of high-quality chrome vandium steel and are easily removed from the handle with a touch of a button. Unfortunately this nifty tool isn’t as widely available as we’d expect, but we did find it selling online at Duluth Trading Co. for $20, so grab it while you can.
