New 3/8" Drive Semi-Deep Impact Sockets Offer Great Access And Versatility
CHICAGO (January 4, 2002) -- S*K Hand Tool Corporation has expanded its impact socket line with two new 3/8" Drive Semi-Deep Impact Socket Sets in both metric and fractional sizes. Similar to its recently released semi-deep chrome sockets, S*K's
semi-deep impact socket design provides access in work spaces where conventional deep sockets are too big but standard length sockets just won't get the job done. For improved fastener contact, S*K's semi-deep sockets incorporate a deeper broach depth than standard length sockets and utilize a fully tapered, nose down design for improved access over straight wall designs. Both sets come packaged on a metal rail.
Socket sizes in the new sets include:
10 pc. Fractional 3/8" Drive Semi-Deep Impact Socket Set (#4060)
5/16", 3/8", 7/16", 1/2", 9/16", 5/8", 11/16", 3/4", 13/16", 7/8" (Overall length 1 5/8") Packaged on a metal rail.
12 pc. Metric 3/8" Drive Semi-Deep Impact Socket Set (#4080)
8mm, 9mm, 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 15mm, 16mm, 17mm, 18mm, 19mm (Overall length 1 5/8") Packaged on a metal rail.
Like all S*K sockets, the semi-deep impact sockets feature the patented SureGrip® design which drives the side of the fastener hex, not the corner. This side drive not only provides increased strength, but also makes S*K sockets effective on partially rounded fasteners. Sockets are coated with a black rust-preventative compound for long life.
