Socket spanners - standard articles and custom-made products

Our sockets are hot forged according to the latest findings in deformation technology and are characterized by high torques and the high wear resistance. The basis for all CARL WALTER sockets is safe handling. In the case of sockets with the square drive, a safe connection is therefore made by a ball catch hole at 1/4", a ball catch groove at 3/8" to 3/4" and a pin lock at 1". Based on our many years of experience, we offer our socket spanners as standard articles or as custom-made products according to special requirements.

Socket wrench: product features

The ergonomic shape of the lever-operated ratchet allows it to be used without hindrance in all working positions. For this purpose, extra fast connections have been designed through recessed wrench openings on the face side and recessed inner square edge of the sockets. The small working angle, high switching comfort and a swivel angle of only 6° also offer practical benefits. This enables work in confined spaces with high torques. Switching comfort is ensured by a recessed switching lever to prevent accidental switching in the case of lever-operated ratchets or smooth, central switching in the case of fine-tooth ratchets.

Special socket wrenches for special requirements

Socket wrenches offer many advantages, which, however, can often not be perceived in special applications due to the standardized dimensions. Due to our many years of experience as a special tool manufacturer, we enable our customers to have individually manufactured special sockets according to their requirements. These are specially developed by us or produced according to customer samples.
