worth it

I've used other, more costly tools, and they've failed. This off-set O2 socket is the best I've workd with so far. It might be cheaper, but surely not in quality.

It broke!

My O2 sensor was a bit too tight, and this thing broke! Why don't they make these things out of steel or something?! See the picture to see how it broke.

    Comments about Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

    I was a bracing myself for a tough time as I've heard about oxygen sensors being tough to remove. Well, this socket helped make it an easy job. As soon as I got home, I jacked up the car, slid underneath and sprayed PB blaster on the "nut" part of the sensor. About 5 minutes later, I put this socket on my 3/8" breaker bar and got to work. It came loose so fast I thought that it must have slipped off. Nope. I was unscrewing the sensor with my fingers in seconds and it came right out. Turned out the sensor itself was fine, so I tightened it right back in, again with the help of the offset sensor wrench. Don't forget to use anti-seize! I can't speak to how it would hold up for long-term daily use, but for a home mechanic it seems strong enough and helpful with awkward angles.

    Comments about Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

    This tool looks like the right tool. I put it on the sensor and applied pressure. I felt the bar move and thought that I was making good progress. Turns out that the socket was slipping around the sensor as if it were too big. Looking at it my only guess is that the socket has spread out.

      Comments about Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

      I have a Chevy Express 1500 van with 4 o2 sensors. I was able to get 3 of the 4 off but due to the placement of the downstream sensor on the passenger side, I couldn't get it with this tool, because of how short it is.

          Puy it on my o2sensor one time and as soon as I put a little pressure on it it spred open and just spun around the bolt. I would not recomend this tool to anyone that has no other way to remove a o2 sensor.

              Comments about Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

              I bought this despite the mixed reviews it did nothing but flex and skip so I tossed it aside and beat the old o2 sensor to hell to get it off finishing it off with a deepwell socket to get it removed. I installed new o2 snug with antisieze just to find out that the new o2 is defective and slow reading so then I thought I try the freshly easy installed o2 it could do it right???

              No I stripped the tool not the o2! Some sort of a sick joke to waste my time

                Helped break free my o2 sensor. Did not think the offset would work but it was a snap.

                  This special tool allows you to get the oxygen sensors broken loose in tight working conditions. The tool slips around the wires and fits snugly onto the sensor. I found it works best with a 3/8" breaker bar. It allows easy tightening of the new sensor.
