Holiday 2010 Giveaway: Channellock Tools 4-in-1 Ratcheting Wrench Set [CLOSED]

All of us need tools. Some of us need lots of professional grade tools and some of us need just enough basic tools to keep our homes in good order. But one type of tool set always seems only available in mega sized 75+ piece sets: The Ratcheting Socket Set. No matter what your actual wrench needs are, everybody I know owns a giant ratchet set (myself included). As nice as it is to be prepared for any size bolt or nut, metric or standard, I only ever use a handful of the sizes.

The box my mega ratcheting socket set comes in is the size of a brief case and I leave it in the basement, hardly convenient. What we all really need is a tool or small tool set that accommodates the most standard sizes and is small enough to keep handy. When I learned I had the opportunity to try out Channellock's 841S Ratcheting Wrenches I was very excited These wrenches had the potential to replace my giant socket set.

The 841S ratchet set includes just two ratcheting wrenches but replaces 8 of the most commonly used standard sizes. The set would easily fit into a kitchen utility drawer (try that with your socket set!).

The wrenches have hardened steel sockets and laminated steel shafts. The switches to change ratchet direction are easy to engage and intuitively placed. The ratcheting movement is tight and precise. This set is high quality and I should be able to count on years of use.

For less than $35 Channellock's 841S Ratcheting Wrench set is a must have in any home or shop. The ability to handle the majority of your standard size wrench needs out of your kitchen utility drawer is a no-brainer. The 841S Ratcheting Wrench set would fit very nicely in a stocking this holiday...

You can order this wrench set and other Channellock tools right on .
