Sometimes having the perfect tool is less important than having a tool that’ll work in kit you can easily carry — and that’s small enough to get past the guy at the junkyard front counter, too. That’s when tool like GearWrench’s ratchet adapters kick ass, letting you fit two tools into the space of one. Slide these into your wrench set and you’ve got both a wrench and a ratchet.
These adapters convert a 10 mm, 13 mm, or 19 mm box-end wrench into a 1/4”, 3/8”, or 1/2” drive ratchet while taking up almost zero additional room in your tool bag. The ratcheting mechanism is completely housed inside the back ring and the overall depth of the combo after assembly is not any more than a standard ratchet.
