Modern engine bays, with tight tolerances and complex intake and exhaust systems, make removing spark plugs difficult to say the least. Faced with an afternoon of busting knuckles and contorting like a gymnast, even the most patient shade tree mechanics might prefer to bring their cars in for tune-ups. Now, HeaderSockets give mechanics easier access to their plugs, because the sockets are designed with a cut-out.
The cut-out allows for better angles of attack when you’re placing the HeaderSocket on the plug. A coating of black oxide prevents the chrome-moly steel HeaderSockets from corroding. They come in generic 5/8″ and 13/16″ sizes as well as in “long-slot” and low-profile versions. You can get all three versions for about $40.
