Sockets For Specialty Vehicles

For most of your jobs, a traditional socket will probably do the trick, but you never know when you’ll have the need for specialty sockets. Standard sockets are usually internally square-shaped at the end that’s used to connect a socket to a ratchet. Hex and bi-hex sockets are meant to turn six-sided fasteners, and bolt grip sockets are meant to be used to remove damaged or broken fasteners instead of tightening them. In other situations, you may need a different socket.

Specialty sockets are designed for use with bolts or fasteners that aren’t classified as standard. They are also specifically designed for use in automotive applications, opposed to all-purpose sockets that are appropriate for use with a broad range of fasteners. If you work in a shop where you handle a wide variety of projects, then you’ve probably come across your fair share of vehicles where the bolts require a specialty automotive socket.

It has two pins (0.35 in. / 9mm diameter) to easily remove even the most stubborn threaded leaf spring and shackle pins on Volvo and Mack suspensions. You’ll appreciate the sleek black Oxide finish, which reduces the potential of any spinning or slipping of the socket on the shackle pin, especially when managing a heavy load. Other notable features include being compatible with a 1/2” drive and being meticulously crafted to ensure continuous reliability and accuracy.

    The second specialty socket is designed for use on Mack trucks. This socket will get your unique job done safer and easier.
