Review

  • Needed it to remove the rear wheel on my Ducati monster, it worked and was cheaper than the one from Ducati. Considering I might only use this 2 or 3 times a year for tire changes, chain adjustments and brake work, worth every penny.
  • One year after buying my Equalizer hitch I found the nut was loose as I was unhitching, maybe by two turns. Pretty scary, could have lost the entire trailer. Turns out grease from the ball and trailer coupler had been slowing working its way between the base of the ball and hitch allowing the trailer to twist the ball thereby slowing untightening the nut underneath. I learned with heavy trailers this can be a perpetual problem.Took it to the local RV shop and they didn’t have the correct thin wall socket. I ordered this socket and a Tekton 24″ breaker bar. At $65/hour shop time this solution is least costly and more assured. The socket fits perfectly. Standing on the 24″ breaker bar my 170 lb. weight creates about 340 foot lbs. of torque. I jumped up and down an got the nut a little tighter. Should be fine with regular checkups.
  • I bought this monster socket to perform a front wheel bearing swap on my BMW E46, and it did the job perfectly. I’m not sure how often I’ll have to use this guy, but it looks like it will stand up against anything I throw at it. I’ve lent it out twice already (more wheel bearing fixes), and it’s come back to me no worse for wear. The plating hasn’t chipped, the teeth haven’t slipped, and it hasn’t broken or warped – even with 200+ ft-lbs of torque. That’s a solid socket in my mind. And even if you aren’t going to use it every day for big jobs, you could probably carry it around in a purse or something and use it as self defense (it’s a solid hunk of metal!).Edit: 2013-Feb-26The socket has still held up, and it’s been loaned out about a dozen times, all for front wheel bearing replacements on E46s. Definitely worth the $$.
  • Fit in my Equal-i-zer hitch to tighten the ball. I used it once and will probably never need it again. I also bought a TEKTON 47822 1/2-Inch Drive (F) by 3/4-Inch (M) Impact Adapter, Cr-V to go with it. Those who have said it won’t fit their Equal-i-zer hitch could have a slightly different casting. It was snug in mine but it worked.
  • Works for tightening a ball on the Equil-iz-er anti sway hitch. The socket wall fits inside the hitch ball well. simply put the arms in the arm brackets and twist them about 30 degrees for clearance and the socket falls in. 5 minute job. I couldn’t find anyone locally with a socket that worked. My hitch is the 1000/10000 size.
  • Worked very well torqueing down my Equal-i-zer 12K hitch ball. I did remove the swing arm sockets to grease them and that’s when I used this to install the ball. So I can’t say if this would be thin enough with them in place.
  • Exactly as it shows…. and is huge! Broke a ratchet using it, but alas, I should have used a breaker bar. Not it’s fault. Mostly worked, as the axle nut is a bit “odd” (the shoulder is very short), so had to use an alternate method to fully tighten (to 360ft/lbs). Would recommend this for anyone who needs a large socket. Considering the price and need, this is a good heavy tool.
  • Works great on my 2012 Speed triple, but make sure you have the adapter to fit onto your wrench at home. I had to buy additional adapters that go from 3/8 to 1/2 to 3/4 to fit this. You could also go with a breaker bar or torque wrench that fits it.
