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

    The Halfords Advanced 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.

  • Halfords Advanced 30 Piece Metric Vortex Socket Set 1/4" 3/8" is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good concept, poor quality, lousy service Like: useful through feature, thiner than normal sockets (both socket walls and depth), 6 point so drive on nut flats unlike most 12 point which drive on corners so hopefully less likely to round nuts (this isn't clear in the description). Dislike: below Halfords average quality! Need to return as one ratchet had a big split down the handle when I opened the box! The ratchet mechanism is sloppier than most Halfords ratchets. The castings are worse than other Halfords Advanced range tools with more pitting. At least they have a lifetime warranty so not too worried. Value: bought in a 'better than half price' sale so were fair value. I would not recommend at full price. Service: shockingly bad! I ordered through click and collect. The item they put aside had been opened (not in cellophane wrapper). Worse still it had been used (greasy finger prints, chipped chrome, signs of corrosion). Had to protest to get it swapped. Sadly when I got the new one home and opened it one ratchet handle had a crack in it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting product I purchased these to replace a standard 3/8 drive set. Halfords did not seem to sell just a 3/8 drive set only 3/8 and 1/4 which this contains. These sockets have a lifetime warranty so should be good quality, but the sockets seem fairly ordinary with regard to build, having fairly thin walls. Not up to impact standards. The design is obviously unusual as well, to lower the profile of the sockets which is a good idea, but means that you cannot use normal extensions etc. with them, and Halfords do not seem to sell individual items so you cannot add items. The set does come with 3 adapters so you can use the ratchet with normal sockets and extensions. Think the set should have a long extension included. Overall the build seems pretty good and the ratchets are nice, but I wouldn't want to put too much strain on them. Think I would have preferred a set of just 3/8 sockets and normal design, but I had a Halfords voucher to use...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Socket Set Very good quality and handy range of socket sizes. Wish I'd bought before now to save me problems in the past.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Ordered the vortex kit as the style is perfect for my landscaping requirements. Alas when collecting the 2 sets available were both missing the ratchet. Went for a basic set in the end as needed it that day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracking little tool set Bought the vortex set mainly for doing top strut mounts and drop links. Also worked a treat on pulling out and putting in new bushes using a threaded bar.
