Universal Tools

Grabs hard, turn after turn.

Our Universal sockets and wrenches are perfect under the hood, in the house, on the job, or anywhere with multiple types of fasteners.

Professional grade to get it done.

Kobalt’s Universal sockets and wrenches use a specialized drive design that allows one socket or wrench to turn six different fastener shapes: 6-pt, 12-pt, star, spline, square, and even rounded fasteners. Our Universal spline design is dedicated to Standard (SAE) or Metric (MM) sizes – ensuring you get a snug fit on every fastener.

All that plus good looks.

The distinctive natural grind surface paired with the industrial matte black finish allows you to easily identify these tools in your toolbox. Extra wide laser-etched size callouts provide a striking contrast against the natural finish on the sockets and wrenches, so you don’t have to waste time hunting for the right size.

Faster, harder, smarter.

The Universal-ratchet includes a 72-tooth gear which delivers a 5° arc swing. With this tight action feature you’ll be able to get a fastener turning in minimal space, and the sockets, extensions, and ratchets all feature a knurled pattern to deliver extra gripping space when you need it.
