Standard Tools

Designed for superior performance.

Kobalt mechanic’s tools not only meet the standards established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) – they exceed them.

Ready to do your dirty work.

Kobalt mechanic’s tools were built with the professional in mind. When working with oils, greases, and other lubricants – your hands are bound to get dirty. We knew that – so our standard mechanic’s tools are full polish chrome, which is easy to wipe clean. With our lifetime hassle free guarantee, these tools help you tackle the toughest jobs, forever.

You asked. We listened.

To help you work faster and more efficiently, our wrenches and sockets feature color-coded stripes to indicate SAE (red) and Metric (blue) sizes. When you combine that with the hard-to-miss size callouts, it’s pretty easy to find the right tool. Kobalt sockets range from 6-point, 12-point, 8-point and star broaches in both standard and deep – which covers a variety of fastener needs.

Best-in-class ratchets.

The Kobalt 72-tooth quick release ratchet comes standard in our mechanic’s tool sets, and it’s also available for individual sale in 1/4”, 3/8”, and 1/2” drive sizes. We use a tear-drop shaped head, a low profile forward/reverse switch, and a full polish comfort shaped handle – the same features pros expect. Our ratchet assortment is the most complete offering you will need, including roto-head, flex-head, extra-long handled, stubby bodies, comfort grip handles, mini-head, and gearless roller bearing drive ratchets.
