Snap-on increases ratchet access, leverage

Snap-on stubby ratchets

The new Snap-on TK72/TKF72 1/4-in. Drive Dual 80 Technology Stubby Ratchets give technicians access and leverage for hard-to-reach jobs that require a tool that grabs onto fasteners and delivers just the right swing arc, the company says.

Whether it’s the fixed-head or flex-head, these ratchets get into the deepest, tightest places with six teeth in contact with the gear. The 72-tooth gear, innovated by Snap-on as Dual 80 technology, provides 5 degrees of swing arc, which is up to 25 percent less ratcheting arc needed to engage the next gear tooth, Snap-on says.

With uncompromising strength and durability, the stubby handle provides easier access to cramped spaces. The contoured handle offers technicians more comfort and better control. Snap-on says the ratchet heads are sealed to maintain lubrication and prevent dirt from getting in and clogging the gear, while the signature chrome exterior finish makes for easy cleanup.
