I bought this tool, on ebay thinking it was a good tool. I prefer a different brand. The bolt for the flex head is always loosing up. For the cost of this ratchet, that shouldn't be an issue. The internal mechanism seams like its floating in the head, no rigidness to it. Overall, I'm very disappointed. Think I will be handing this down to my kids or I'll be selling it very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe0816 Excellent ratchet
It is a great ratchet, it has never broke yet. The only con I would have to say is the swivel point (a bolt) seems to back itself out every once in a while. Just tighten back up and you're good to go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ratchet66person I had boughten that ratchet in February and it broke in june
I had bought this flex head ratchet from Matco tools thinking ok brand name wouldn't brake on me so easy or as quick as my Craftsman's. Well i was far from the truth. The flex lock on my ratchet had broke with in four months of using it. it was not a catastrophic brake, but the lock snapped in half so that the flexing part of the head could not lock. It was not missed used or anything like that. Simply loosening caliper slide bolts that were torqued to maybe 60 -70 ft bls.

Unlike it 1/4 counter part, this seems better built. The flex head allows for great maneuverability. The locking feature is great for preventing slippage. The handle has a great feel in the hand and reduces fatigue in my case. Use this as my daily ratchet, The green color handle helps to locate it during the rush period or when jumping from one job to the next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shaggy Probably the best
I have the green ratchet, I've had it for about 4 monte, and absolutely love it. it is my go too ratchet. with the 88 teeth it makes tight spaces much easier and approachable. The fact that it is a flex head was very appealing to me, it pretty well will fit anywhere and do anything. With it being 12" long, gives you the torque you need to do just about any job you needed to tackle. The only stickler i have is, i wish the head was a little narrower so it would fit in smaller places but that would not put me off from recommending this 100%. The handle is great, no slip with oily hands and easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobo1000 Quality ratchet
I have several of the new SO ratchets and I'm not saying one is better than the other but that each has its own advantage. I like this ratchet because the head is much thinner than the SO's counterpart and the quality seems on par with them to. The ergonomic handle is very nice but I cant say to much because I haven't used it allot. The main strong point of this ratchet is its locking head which is way better than the completions because it doesn't get stuck or jammed. The length is defiantly a bonus in most cases and the fine ratchet teeth are great for tight spots. Overall this ratchet is a great tool to have in your arsenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joe419 everything i need
i bought this ratchet after a great deal of searching for a ratchet to round out my collection. i wanted a flex head that locks, a slim head for tight spaces, a high tooth count for a tight swing, high quality and american made with a lifetime warranty. i also wanted a plastic or rubber handle because it gets cold where i live and bare steel can be uncomfortable in your hands.this ratchet has become one of my most used and i would buy one again if this one were lost.
