Halfords 150 piece professional socket and ratchet set content
So what is in the Halfords 150 piece professional socket and ratchet set? The set contains both AF and Metric sockets with different sized drives, a number of ratchets, extension bars, spanners and ratchet spanners. All of the tools are included in a hardened plastic case which keeps them in order.
A full list of the sockets and other tools is available on the Halfords site (see below) however I would want to know what sockets are in this set more than anything. Well there are 10 x Metric sockets from 4 to 13 mm, 10 x SAE sockets from 5/32 to 1/2 all in 1/4 inch drives. There are similar amounts of sockets in 3/8 and 1/2 inch drives. Whats interesting are the 8 E torx sockets which are included, although these are in 3/8 inch drives.
Halfords 150 piece professional socket and ratchet set verdict
The halfords 150 piece professional socket and ratchet set is a must buy for any DIY mechanic who cant afford the likes of snap on tools. If you work on your car, your bike, cycle, lawnmower or anything else at home then this is a bargin buy at Half price. I think I would have been tempted at the full £199 but the £100 discount really sealed the deal for me, epecially when the 120 piece set is more expensive at the moment! The quality of the tools are second to none and this I feel is reflected by the lifetime guarantee which is a pretty bold thing for Halfords to do. The box is great and keeps the tools in neat order, the only criticism that I do have is of the quality of the latches on the box as one fell off shortly after I purchased the set. It was however an easy fix. Overall I give the Halfords 150 piece professional socket and ratchet set a whopping 4 out of 5.
