It looks a bit like someone got into one of those fights with the tools and came out swinging, but the Palm control is supposed to look that way — we swear.  It’s very odd how something just a touch off from normal in a tool can mean the difference between ending up stuck in your tracks or moving onto the next phase of the project. The Palm control is basically a normal ratchet with an 18 degree kink in the handle.

18 degrees doesn’t really sound like a lot, but if you need that bit of offset, you need it in the worst way — usually at two a.m. when you need to be at work in the morning.

So, while we would argue that you might not need the Palm Control all the time, or even once in a blue moon, it’s the one time you need it that will save your rear.  Street Pricing starts at $28.

    Would have saved my knuckes plenty of time. It’s going on my wishlist.

    I actually got one of these free from SK when they were giving some away a couple years ago. Great ratchet.

    This is not “the” Palm Control ratchet. SK presently has 5, and Facom’s got a handful, too. And they are not really “normal ratchet[s],” either. They’re some of the best ratchets out there.
