Stanley Proto Introduces Box Wrench Ratchet Adapters

New accessories convert a ratcheting box head wrench into an ultra thin ratchet. Conyers, GA, October 10, 2006 - Ratchet Adapters are the latest Stanley® Proto® tools designed to add more versatility to the technician's toolbox. When plugged into the head of a ratcheting box wrench, these accessories convert the wrench into an ultra-thin ratchet head that will accept the same sockets and attachments as a standard ratchet. The new line includes adapters that are made to fit into 3/8 in, ½ in, and ¾ in., 10mm, 13mm, and 19mm ratcheting wrenches. It also includes ¼ in., 3/8 in. and ½ in. drive versions. The main benefit of an adapter is that it creates a very low profile ratchet - for instance, the profile of a ½ in. adapter in a ratcheting wrench is smaller than the profile of a ½ in ratchet. That means it can more easily squeeze into very tight spaces, such as those found on today's aircraft and automotive engines. Ratchet adapters can also reduce the number of tools a mobile maintenance technician has to lug from place to place. That's because the technician can now carry three small adaptors, rather than three full-size ratchets. Stanley® Proto® ratchet adapters can be used with ¼", 3/8" and ½" drive sockets, either English or Metric, as well as with spline sockets. In addition, Proto is offering bit adapters that will accept ¼ in. screwdriver bits. They're designed to be used with a 3/8 in. or 10mm ratcheting wrenches. All adapters use a convenient and stable locking and release system. They can be purchased individually or in sets of four fractional, or four metric adapters.
