The 1/2 in. socket line, like the 3/8 in. line, is used primarily for automotive maintenance and general mechanical work. They can withstand higher torques and more work space is needed to use them, but they have broader application ranges. Socket hex sizes: 1/4 in. to 1-716 in. and 8-36mm. Torque applications for sockets, handles, and accessories: 1,100-5,000 lbs. For FOD (Foreign Object Debris) applications, the use of sockets with a blue finish is recommended so that no coating will flake off.
- Fabricated using high quality micro alloyed steel, hot or cold forged depending on their size
- Precision machined and heat treated to provide the best combination of hardness, tensile strength and torque strength
- All URREA sockets and accessories have a tough nickel-chromium finish for corrosion resistance
- Compliant with American and European domestic and international standards
