Launching a full range of 12-point sockets

You can now expand your range. Create a full range of both standard and deep 12-point sockets.

We are now launching an assortment of 12 point sockets, both as single items and in sets – which means that we now can offer a full range of both 6 and 12 point sockets. 12 point sockets are commonly used in the aviation industry and engineering but are suitable for a wide range of tasks.

With this launch we can now offer 12 point sockets in 1/4”, 3/8”, and the existing 1/2” drive in both regular and deep. These new sockets can be ordered as single items or are available in four new sets. The sockets are made of chrome vanadium with a satin finish for a better grip when handling the socket. The ball lock recess on the female end enables the grip to the ratchet.

12 point sockets are ideal if you are trying to work on a fastener that is hard to see, or you cannot see at all. Therefore, also great to use in tight spaces as they allow you to connect to a fastener at more angles. The additional points make these sockets easier to connect with the heads of fasteners.
