Stanley J5224M Proto 3/8-inch Drive Socket 24 mm - 12 Point Proto 12 Point Sockets are ideal for use on stubborn or damaged fasteners and also on fasteners made from soft materials. The Torque Plus design is a high performance drive configuration which allows for quick and easy socket engagement to the fastener flats, not the corners. The Torque Plus configuration employs a radius-corner design, shifting contact area and stress away from the fastener corners and distributing contact stresses over a large area of the socket, minimizing slippage. The Torque Plus internal design minimizes fastener rounding, helps to extend fastener life and allows the user to more easily turn worn, rounded, or rusted fasteners.

Ordered 15 individual Proto 3/8 drive metric 12 point sockets to build a set. As usual, Proto is a good solid tool, but not without its flaws. The chrome on the outside of all 15 sockets was perfect. However, there were several sockets (mostly the larger sizes) that has a splotchy dull grayish mat finish on the inside (most were clean and shiny on the inside) and a couple others had dark staining on the inside (don't believe it was rust...just some reaction from processing I would assume). Also, there were 2 sockets that has a shallow detent on one side, but should be OK (a huge problem right now with SK sockets). So, for the most part they are acceptable, but it would be nice to make them ugly myself from working and not receive them that way when it comes to the inside finish.
5 stars not because they are perfect but because they are perfect for the price. first off the finish is not as nice as snap on or matco, the inner chrome is not applied well. outer chrome is great. i should also mention that this is a problem with newer SK stuff as well. fitment is exact and unlike the newer SK sockets there is no grime retaining inner lip which i consider a major bonus. are they as nice as snap on? nope, feel and finish are both off. are the comparable to SK? yes. you're basically getting SK quality USA made sockets for 20-30% off SK prices
