New socket set from Laser Tools

Laser Tools has released its new ‘Low Profile Bit and Go thru Alldrive’ socket set (part number 7799). The 13mm flexi head ratchet ring spanner is designed to take the selection of low-profile bits and Go Thru sockets (bit and socket height just 21mm) that are provided in the set.

Twenty low profile bits are included manufactured from strong 8660-grade alloy steel — hex: 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8mm; Star*: T10, T15, T20, T25, T30, T40, T45, T50 and T55; and spline: M4, M5, M6, M8, M10 and M12.

The nine sockets feature Laser’s unique Alldrive design that is capable of removing and tightening metric, AF, spline and Star* fixings, this set even fits some Whitworth and BA sizes — and the Go Thru design that lets you reach fixings that even conventional deep sockets cannot reach — 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13mm Alldrive sizes are included.

For example, the 5mm Alldrive socket will fit (as well as metric 5mm), T30 Star*, spline M6, 3/16″AF and 6BA; the 12mm Alldrive fits metric 12mm, 7/16″AF, 3/16″ Whitworth, and 1/4″BSF. And a 1/4″-square-drive adaptor is also included, for all your 1/4″-drive sockets and accessories.

The Go Thru design lets the socket and the ratchet ring spanner run down the length of the threaded bolt or screw to reach the fastener. Particularly suited for adjusting tappets or handbrake mechanisms where access is needed to hold the threaded rod as the adjusting nut is tightened.

Incredibly versatile, especially on older cars that were not always designed with access in mind, and for classic cars, where often a variety of fastener and thread types are used on one vehicle.
