I gave five stars because of excellent quality and cost.Tekton makes great tools at an affordable price.I needed to replace a lost socket in my socket set.This socket worked perfect and fit the bolts correctly.I would recommend Tekton tools to friends and family.
I cant say enough good about TEKTON sockets they are worth every bit you spend on them you cant beat the price and Quality ! GOOD TUFF STUFF !!!
Many of the cheaper sockets that we buy are either not the right size, or are off centered. These both were perfect. I can't tell any difference between these and my Snap On's. HIghly recommend. I will buy many more from this mfgr.
