They work great in hard places to reach and need that extra bend when used on an extension when working on our cars..

I bought these because I needed a set of u-joints. When I use u-joints I'm always afraid I'll snap the pin, even on nicer ones like Bonney or Craftsman. I figured I'd give these guys a shot because they're pretty inexpensive and I've had great luck with Tekton tools in the past. The main reason I bought impact joints for use with hand tools is I've snapped other u-joints in the past by using a breaker bar... And I'd rather have a u-joint that isn't going to snap than a u-joint that will snap that I have to get replaced (under warranty of course) at Sears.

These guys are significantly bigger than most non-impact u-joints. They're a bit longer and way thicker. That could make it a bit harder to get into hard to reach places, but I haven't had any kind of problem with it. I'm not deducting any stars for this because they're impact joints, so they're supposed to be bigger and tougher than non-impact joints.

I've used these a hand full of times (the 1/2 and the 3/8) with some fairly long breaker bars (16" and 25") and applied a decent amount of force without destroying them. It's pretty safe to say that these are tough and they won't break in the hand applications where I've broken other u-joints in the past.

The other great thing is, if I do manage to break these, which I doubt will happen, Tekton has a great warranty replacement program.

Look all right but after first use the pin came out. had to spot weld every pin holding the swivels together on both sides on all three sizes while I was doing them ;0( Now they will WORK unless they just crack and break in half now?
***Buy at your own risk!!!!!***

The 1/2" u-joint shattered the first time I used it. Used it with my Porter Cable 18v impact gun. This is a fairly powerful tool but shouldn't have had even close to enough torque to destroy any of these u-joints let alone the 1/2" one. My impact gun maxes at 1600 in/lbs. (133.3 ft/lbs.) with a variable trigger. Pulled the trigger about 2/3, so call it about 90 ft/lbs. and the 1/2 u-joint simply flew apart. The pins bent and the metal snapped on both sections. The parts flew everywhere. One of them popped me in the lip.

Next up is the 3/8" size. Same impact gun. Different, smaller bolt. This time I barely brushed the trigger. Both pins fell out. Somehow, I wasn't surprised.

Lastly we have the 1/4" u-joint. I have no idea how it would have held up. Considering what happened with the first two, I decided discretion being the better part of valor... okay, I was a coward. Didn't want another fat lip so I didn't use it.

For a little comparison, I have a piece of junk Kobalt (Lowes in-house brand) 3/8" u-joint non-impact grade. With the same impact gun, on the same bolts on my truck, the pins didn't fall out or bend. The metal didn't shear or tear and go flying about like a duck on drugs. It didn't give me a fat lip. What it did do was help me take the bolts out of my truck.

Amazon gets 5 stars for making this right. I still need to get around to shipping this back for my refund. It's just such a hassle for something so small and cheap.

I've only tried these out once to determine their strength and stability...I found them to be very sturdy in use. They fit nice & firm (tight) on every adapter I have and accepted every socket I tried with the same snug fit. The roller balls appear well seated with a firm spring action. The universal pins seem strong and molded together well.

I will use these for many tasks and expect to get many years of use from them.

I purchased this set of u-joints to use with my impact tools, upon the first use the 1/2" drive u-joint broke apart! These would be OK to use with a standard ratchet but I would not recommend using these with impact tools, even if it says they can be. I'm currently waiting to receive a refund from Amazon on these!

The 1/2" joint just broke after using it for the first time. Will see if I can get a replacement. I thought being an "impact" set that it would be able to handle the abuse of an impact gun, I guess not.

Update: Received a new 1/2" CR-V u-joint from Tekton. Thanks!

If you are in the market for inexpensive u-joint set, give it a go. I will mention however they don't stand up long behind 120 psi and a 1/2" CP air wrench powered by a 60 gallon tank. Definitely a DIY homeowner product.
