Customer reviewsGood ratchet for the price
Did not receive a new ratchet. I don t blame Capri Tools or even Amazon for that matter. They can t test everything that is returned and when I first opened the package it looked new to me too. Once I tried turning the ratchet mechanism I realized it was used. Someone had over packed it with grease like packing a wheel bearing . I had to open it and remove all that, clean it out and apply just a little grease. At least the person didn t strip the torx screws during their greasing process. Now it works OK and for around 16 it s well worth the money. The one problem I have with it is that every time you turn the ratchet the selection lever almost goes back to the center position. I don t have any other ratchets that do that. So long as it doesn t go all the way to center and spin freely it won t affect its usefulness. The pawl and ratchet wheel are heavy duty and should hold up under normal stress not using a cheater pipe... that s what they make 3 8 breaker bars for . I think it would be greatly improved if it were longer say 10 or 11 inches instead of 7 and if the head was a lower profile closer to 1 2 inch . Sure it would cost more but if in the 30- 35 range I think it would compete with the 84 tooth grearwrench ratchets just fine.
