But they are a very very good quality I really like the iodized colors of it in the swivel it's an amazing quality tool I would definitely purchase again.

I did look into several different manufactures as I do with anything that I purchase ever and these did seem to be not only the best deal for a quality product but the best and quality is well and I like that I got quarter inch drive and a 3/8 inch drive it would be cool if they had different color options but that kind of crap really doesn't matter at all I love having these in my collection in my backpack for dirtbikeS as well as in my Harley toolset and in my work toolbox.

Sears is a marketing company, that has their brand Craftsman made for them by another manufacture and Sears just private labels their tools.

I actually have bought the HD Husky ones recently, as HD Husky has 100 notches of movement vs. 72 for these.

I like what I have purchased and it gives me another option for all of my socket and hex bits uses.

Editorial Reviews

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this mechanical ratchet/pawl based on its brand popularity and manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this mechanical ratchet/pawl now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. CRAFTSMAN is a known mechanical ratchet/pawl brand

CRAFTSMAN doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other mechanical ratchet/pawl brands. But I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos above and links in the additional research section down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

2. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Craftsman has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

3. This mechanical ratchet/pawl has very positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This mechanical ratchet/pawl has very positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this mechanical ratchet/pawl more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

4. The price went up, so buy now before it goes up again!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $89.77 $36.99

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has gone up, resulting in a 12.28% price increase.

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this mechanical ratchet/pawl was $89.77, and the lowest price point was $36.99. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 3.32% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $69.12 a week from now. It might be best to wait for a future price drop, but if this product checks all the boxes for you, don't wait to optimize for small gain.

'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Dynamite. If you're looking for a mechanical ratchet/pawl with best reviews, you're looking at that product! Within its category, it has received the highest customer satisfaction score. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from Dynamite I linked below is a better option.
