SPARKS, MD--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2016) - GearWrench®, an innovative hand tool brand known for tools that deliver speed, strength, and access to automotive technicians, today announced its new line of Single-Size Socket Sets.

Automotive technicians often know what size fasteners they need to reach, but are unsure what style socket they'll need to gain access. GearWrench® Single-Size Socket Sets eliminate the need to go back to the toolbox several times by offering a selection of different style sockets, all in the same size, on a portable socket rail.

The following GearWrench® Single-Size Socket Sets will be available for purchase on April 19:

  • SKU 80102: 5 Pc. 1/4" 8mm Set

  • SKU 80946: 5 Pc. 3/8" 15mm Set

"These Single-Size Socket Sets are ideal for when technicians know the bolt size, but not how they'll get to it," said Jim Stewart, product manager for GearWrench. "Having various types of sockets readily available means users can easily change out the type of socket being used without making multiple trips to the toolbox."

Each set includes standard, mid-length and deep chrome sockets, a Universal chrome socket and a Magnetic Impact Socket.

The sets are packed on a standard GearWrench® Socket Rail and ship in a full color carton.
