Kobalt Xtreme Access ratchets and sockets fit over bolts which extend beyond the height of a normal socket. This specialized design eliminates the need for deep sockets by allowing threaded rod and long bolts access through the head of the socket and ratchet. Because the socket fits inside the ratchet head, you end up with a profile that is about 50% smaller than that of a traditional ratchet and socket combination.
And anywhere you encounter longer bolts, or tighter spaces with little clearance for a standard ratchet and socket is ideal for the Xtreme Access line. Whatever the project is – replacing an exhaust manifold, repairing a chain link fence, or even anchoring a mailbox to a cement pad – Kobalt has you covered. Use Xtreme Access tools on any job where you need a ratchet and a socket.
The Kobalt Xtreme Access product line is forged from chrome vanadium steel and properly heat treated to offer strength and durability. And it’s polished to a full-shine finish which is easy to keep clean. The go-through ratchet boasts a 72-tooth gearing mechanism which delivers a 5° arc swing, a slim-design head, and a low-profile forward/reverse switch. To top it all off, it’s backed by our lifetime hassle-free guarantee.
