We’ve seen lots of swivel-head ratchets, but we’ve never seen one that swivels in this plane. As PutnamEco — the reader who clued us in to this find — said, you can “start off like a screw/nut driver and finish like a regular ratchet. This is one of those tools you don’t realize you need until you have it.”
It features Snap-on’s now-standard “classic soft grip handle” as well as a slim head and 9-degree ratchet action. The 3/8″-drive version (pictured) runs just shy of $100.
