Which would you rather have: a close-quarter ratchet, or a right-angle drill attachment? Well, thanks to Black & Decker, you never have to make that hard choice. They’ve created the Tri-Ratchet to end this age-old problem you didn’t know you had.
One of the few unpowered hand tools Black & Decker offers, the Tri-Ratchet is a 3/8“ ratchet with a very big handle. Though you can use it like a plain ratchet, the Tri-Ratchet becomes unique when you can’t swing the handle. In that situation, you can twist the big handle like a screwdriver to drive the ratchet on the end, so you don’t have to swing on the ratchet to keep turning.
Also, you can remove the handle to reveal a hex shaft sticking out of the ratchet end. When you chuck that hex shaft into a drill, you’ve got a right-angle attachment driver. You can also convert it, with the included accessories, to drive hex bits.
This tool could come in handy in tight situations. You can pick up a Tri-Ratchet with accessories for $25.
