You might not need a small ratchet like the Midget every day, but there are times when they’re indispensable — like when you’re lying on the floor of your vehicle trying to remove the fan speed resistor or another part that’s tucked up under the dash.
At only 3-3/4″ long, the stainless steel Chapman Midget Ratchet has twenty teeth, giving it a short 18° arc for working in close quarters. There’s no switch for changing ratcheting direction on the simple tool — you just turn the ratchet over if you need to go the other direction.
Depending on which set you buy, you can drive slotted, square, Phillips, hex, Reed and Prince, Bristol, and Torx heads — or with a 1/4″ square drive adapter you can use 1/4″ sockets. Additional accessories include a stackable extension and a screwdriver handle.
Prices for Chapman Midget Ratchet sets run from $12 to $35 depending on what’s included.
