  • Halfords Advanced Professional 30 Piece Metric Vortex Socket Set 1/4" 3/8"

    The Halfords Advanced Professional 30 Piece Metric Vortex Socket Set 1/4" 3/8" has a ratchet handle, which quickly converts to a conventional 1/4" or 3/8" locking / quick release ratchet for standard sockets by using the two included adaptors. The ultra thin Vortex hollow socket and extension design eliminates the depth restrictions encountered when using conventional sockets. With Vortex sockets thin wall design the slim ratchet handle reduces overall height by as much as 50%, width by 20% & increase the torque strength by as much as 40%. With interchangeable adaptors the ratchet is both a 1/4" and 3/8" drive standard ratchet & allows you to use the sockets you already have. The adaptors also come with a quick release button.

  • Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Vortex Socket Set Excellent product, well engineered, good quality and good performance. Would recommend this to anyone, Very good when access is limited, negates need for long reach normal sockets. 21 March 2016
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Both ratchets failed within minutes. Bought this for my son who is abike mechanic as Halfords Professional tools have always served us well. From new, neither of us could get a socket into the 1/4" ratchet and couldn't get a socket out of the 3/8" ratchet. Took the set back to the shop and their staff couldn't solve the problem either. We were offered an exchange but felt it was too risky as the lifetime warranty doesn't apply to the ratchet and replacment ratchets weren't stocked. 02 January 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Product & Very Versatile Good quality tool. The two ratchet handles are strong and the ratchet is fine enough to enable small increments when working in small spaces. The sockets and drive adapters fit the ratchet handles very smoothly The hollow drive allows tightening of nuts on long bolts or on all-thread. 27 November 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by no spares I bought this set 2 years ago and it has worked very well but now the circlip that holds the ratchet together has failed and none of the local (within 20 miles) halfords stores has any spares to repair it. 16 July 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Good quality and functionality. Good value aswell. 29 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by vortex!! What a product, simply a prefect tool where all the deep sockets just cannot get too. What makes this even better is the life time guguarantee... So keep your receipts. I love the Halfords brand as it does exactly as u ask and then some. 27 January 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good when nothing else fits Bought for holding a nut and screwing the bolt at the same time - worked perfectly. Although you can get the larger draper set for about the same money, this has the larger and smaller sizes covered, so I think it's a lot more flexible. There is some play in the sockets, so I wouldn't favour them over normal sockets, and they can be a bit tight to unclip, but they do the job. 16 January 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Utter rubbish big let down Bought this 5 mins ago and what a disappointment. Hinges bodged to the case with self tapping screw at a dodgy angle looks like will last 10 mins. 1/4 ratchet works fine 3/8 ratchet refuses to let go of the sockets. After having had a professional halfords set the big one for years and being really pleased with it I can't believe how poor this set is. I will be taking it back this afternoon for a refund as I haven't even used it on a bolt yet just tried the sockets in my hand and the 3/8 just doesn't release the socket at all. Halfords you should reconsider putting your name to these and take them off sale because if this ratchet is faulty out the box and other reviewers have been then how long before the people who's ratchets work out the box then fail. The lifetime gaurantee doesn't cover moving parts so the ratchets aren't covered so people will be left with sockets they can't use as you don't even sell the ratchets Instore on their own. 10 January 2014
