1/2" Drive Universal Joint Socket - Valley Tools
SKU: 12505 | Manufacturer ID: SKUJ-12
A 1/2" drive universal joint is a tool used in automotive and mechanical applications, especially when working with sockets and ratchets. It is designed to provide flexibility and allow for the transmission of torque at different angles. The "1/2 inch drive" refers to the size of the square drive on each end of the universal joint, which is compatible with 1/2 inch sockets and ratchets. The universal joint has a pivoting mechanism that enables it to bend and swivel in various directions. This flexibility is useful for accessing fasteners that are in tight or awkward spaces where a straight-line approach with a rigid tool is not possible. By attaching the universal joint between a socket and a ratchet or other tool, you can maintain proper alignment and apply torque to the fastener even when the tool is not in a straight line with the fastener. Universal joints are valuable tools in automotive repair, construction, and various mechanical applications where access to hard-to-reach fasteners is required.
