Breaker Bar question

Recommended Posts

Since the 1/2" drive refers to the connection of the socket to the bar, you need either 1/2" sockets or a 1/2" to 3/8" adapter for the 3/8" sockets.  Because of the torque involved with a breaker bar though it's best not to use any adapters or extensions.

In theory you can always use any size socket with the correct size adapters.

However I try to stay away from adapters especially going smaller with a breaker bar. If your using the breaker bar for leverage your likely to just snap the 3/8 adapter.

and to add onto this if you dont want to use adapters you can buy a 3/8 breaker bar and if you don't have enough leverage you can always use a piece of pipe.
