Exactly like the Snap-On 1/4 tool, I like how it has the push button to release sockets.

The swivel itself isnt loose and it stays in the position you set it on.

Works exactly as advertised. The swivel ratchet head was a little loose for my liking but just a 1/4 turn with a t-15 on the adjustment screw is all it took. Great product which exceeded my expectations for the price.

Appears to be well made and the ratcheting is smooth. No slop in the mechanism. I would buy again. I think it's a very handy tool. Once you break a nut/bolt loose you can use it like a screw driver, and it affords knuckle clearance .

This is a great set of ratchets for anyone looking for a cheap lifetime warranty tool. Of course with cheap tools usually come some cons, this one is that it is top heavy. All three ratchets are top heavy and not well balanced. The handle is much lighter than the head making it feel like you're holding a hammer. The 1/2 inch is the one you notice the biggest difference while the 1/4 is hardly noticeable. If you look passed the unbalance this is a great affordable tool with a lifetime warranty. The 72tooth/ 5 degree of arc you have to make for it to click is great on the more tight corners. The tool feels reliable in your hand and will get the job done, very nice design and construction.... except for the balance...

I do my own mechanical work, but I am not a professional. these have now replaced my standard socket wrenches. The amount of movement the heads have is perfect for all the engine work I have done so far. The tension that allows the heads to move is also adjustable.

The negative about the product is how big the head area on the wrench is. Sometimes I still need a slimmer one to do the job.
I would recommend these to people who are like me and want to fix anything themselves.

I bought the 1/2, 3/8ths, and 1/4 inch swivel head ratchets at the same time. Like them all, but the little 1/4 incher is by far my favorite. The other 2 are nice, but the heads are LARGE, and that can often be a problem. They are also kind of stiff, but I think they will loosen up with time and use, and be fine. But I grab that 1/4 inch every chance I get, and with my Snap-On semi deep set of metric sockets that go up to 15mm, I get a lot of chances.

I would have given this item 10 stars but there were only 5 available! Immediately upon taking this very well built ratchet out of the box and held it in my hand, I was impressed. The craftsmanship was obvious. The ratcheting is precise. The swivel head is very smooth. Can't believe how affordable this tool is. I am a Tekton customer for sure. Well done Tekton!

had some automotive repairs I needed to get done (teaching myself to fix everything that goes wrong and do the work myself!) thanks to the internet got some pointers on a repair upcoming that having a swiveling head ratchet would be a huge help.

having already purchased multiple tekton socket sets and a small ratchet - checked out reviews of this one and took a chance! used it multiple times getting to and changing out the alternator in our car - the swivel head made it easier/less obnoxious to get to a few areas that would have been a HUGE hassle/near impossible to get to with any sort of regular ratchet.

glad we bought it and its added to our tool collection!

update: used this a few times now and noticed the ratcheting mechanism seems a bit tight - it was great for getting in at awkward angles and once able to break a bolt found that for loosening the bolt it would just spin back and forth and not actually click through the teeth... causing me to have to remove the socket, reach in and handloosen most bolts which got obnoxious - but thankfully was able to loosen the bolts in the first place which i could not have done easily with a regular ratchet.

pulled the wrench out of our toolbox to help my brother work on his van and noticed that the head of the tool had rusted slightly - so shot an e-mail to tekton late sunday night (1AM or so) on 12/6 by the time I woke up monday morning on 12/7 had an e-mail response from customer support - was made aware that this particular ratchet is tight - however he would get a new item in the mail for me that should help me out in the same situation - no questions asked.
