DeWalt Sockets & Ratchets
DEWALT® sockets and ratchets help you tighten or remove individual fasteners, like nuts and bolts, more quickly than other manual DEWALT hand tools, like screwdrivers. These tools are available in multiple sizes and for various purposes. We offer a variety of different options for both the professional and DIY homeowner, including impact-ready sockets and uni-fit sets.
One of the most important features to consider when purchasing socket sets is the socket size. The larger the socket, the greater the amount of strength transferred to the bolt you're attempting to turn. However, a larger socket is not always necessary. Using too large of a socket can cause damage to your tool and your hand. There are many different socket sizes to choose from. Three of the most common are 3/8-inch, 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch sockets. The first two sizes are most commonly used by DIY homeowners while the latter is often used by those who repair automotive. Larger sizes of DEWALT sockets and ratchets are also available and can be used for industrial applications, construction and heavy equipment.
When choosing flooring and framing sockets and ratchets, the depth of the sockets is also an important consideration. Standard sized socket sets are the most common found in a handyman's toolbox. These have a short barrel but offer excellent control and even pressure over the bolt or nut being turned. The tools are also available as deep sockets. These look like a standard socket in diameter but have a taller barrel. They are typically used on longer nuts or to reach bolts in tight spaces.
Whether you're tightening or removing fasteners, the right framing and flooring sockets and ratchets can help you get the job done quickly and easily. Be sure to choose your DEWALT impact sockets and other socket types based on the depth and size you need for your specific project. We have plenty of options available for every need.
