Wind techs can now fumble less for the right sized socket and carry fewer tools, thanks to a new type of impact socket. Hi-Line Utility Supply has announced Klein Tools’ two new 2-in-1 Impact Sockets.
The two new flexible impacts are designed for high-torque applications. The 12-point design (Item #: 66001) is easier to position and works with square fasteners, while the 6-point design (Item #: 66004) contacts flat sides of hex fasteners, reducing round-off.
Both versions offer a new solution to using multiple tools by providing a two-coaxial, spring-loaded device for automatic switching between socket sizes. Users can quickly move between various sized projects without flipping, removing or adjusting the tool.
Socket sizes are 3⁄4″ and 9/16″, and feature a deep socket with a 1/2” drive for pole hardware installation and removal. With these new 2-in-1 Impact Sockets, there are less tools to carry and the new technology won’t weigh users down either at only 0.5 lbs.
