Do You Need a Professional-Grade Flex Head Ratchet?

Do You Need a Professional-Grade Flex Head Ratchet?

Ratchets are a staple in professional workshops or garages, so choosing the best piece with the attributes that makes the job less stressful is essential. They have different styles and characteristics to work under a wide variety of tasks and satisfy the needs of multiple users. 

The flex head type is the best to work in hard-to-reach spaces as it is designed to avoid the headache of working with annoying bolts and nuts located at awkward spots. The arc swing in this tool matters and determines how smoothly and quickly you are able to complete your projects. This is your guide to know what makes a tool truck quality flex head ratchet.

Easily Access to Hard-to-Reach Spaces

USA-made Ratchet

It is pretty easy to find 72-tooth fine ratcheting gears on the market, as they are the most common and come in handy for diverse applications. With this tooth count, you need to move the handle a total of 5 degrees to turn your bolts and nuts, but when it comes to working on tighter and more meticulous jobs, you have better options.

You buy flex head ratchets to work in spaces where your regular fixed-head ratchet can’t fit. When clearance is so limited, you barely have enough space to fit a ratchet, let alone move your hands smoothly. 

That’s why finer or higher-tooth-count ratchets like these Olsa Tools 90-tooth ratchets prove to be more beneficial for this type of application, as you only require a 4-degree swing arc for each click, keeping the aggravation out of working in cramped spots.

The slimness of the head is also a huge determinant when getting into somewhere tight, and the heads of the 3/8-inch drive Olsa Tools ratchets are precisely machined to only 0.5 inches (12.7 mm) thickness, without sacrificing the strength of the gear. The smooth flexing head offers 180 degrees of range for ease of movement and time-saving results. We promise this new tool will exceed your expectations!

Delivers Outstanding Leverage

If changing tires, working with axle nuts, and other high-torque projects is what you frequently use your ratchets for, models with longer handles are a must-have. The Olsa Tools 1/2-inch drive flex head ratchet is two feet long to give you the perfect torque and control to break stubborn nuts and bolts free. The sealed heads without a push-button allows for a higher torque spec and prolong the life of the ratchet by preventing dirt and dust from getting into the internals.
