Husky Double Ratching Wrenchs

Today while at Home Depot while looking at the usual. I just so happened to remember a past job this week where I could of really used a ratching open box wrench. So I came across these today.post-50087-0-17550900-1449968797_thumb.ppost-50087-0-07304600-1449968816_thumb.p

So as usual my question is. Has anyone used these or something similar from another company? How did they perform for you? Do you feel your investment was justified? I found these to be rather inexpensive to me at $39.95 for the set. I just hate buying something only to return it the next day.

I have a set of crescents that have the same mechanism on the open end, they work fairly well, you have to make sure your wrench is perpendicular to the nut, slight angles and it doesn't really work well.

That's what I'm afraid of. I'll have to give it more thought or con someone else to buy them!

I don't doubt their a good brand. I personally find it annoying to return any item if it doesn't live up to your expectations.

Tell me about it I bought two things from Greenlee and they both failed in a week. Should have just stayed with my trusted brand Klein but that's all they carried at that supply. It would have been better to drive up the road to get what I wanted but I was in a rush :/

They're a niche tool and have been around off and on for years. They're handy for running off fasteners, but they won't take the load a traditional wrench will unless you like busted knuckles.

I think the design is best suited for crowfoot versions

I've have the harbor freight ones with the same type of open end design and they worked fine for what I was using them on. Definitely were a lot quicker that using a normal open end wrench but I don't think you can really put a ton of torque on them. I've checked out the Husky ones last time I was in HD and they seem to be a better finish than what was on the Harbor Freight ones.
