    This is the best magnetic tool, I finally got one. It sure does hold the spark plugs in place when you are removing the old ones from your vehicle, the results speak for themselves, I put my trust in this tool. I sure needed it for my 97 Ford F-150 4.6 Liter engine for the farther back 2 plugs on cylinders 4 & 8 cause it can be difficult at time, it out beats a standard 5/8 wrench diameter, cause they will let the plugs stay in when you go to try and pull it out. I would buy this again and again. I recommend it to anyone. And when you go to put a new plug in the magnetic, it strongly holds it in place as you begin to put it in the cylinder hear and tighter it up, just remember to not strip the thread when tightening the plugs. Go for one, you won't regret it after all. It does it's job as it says it should do.

    I bought this tool specifically for the #3 spark plug in a 2001 Blazer. It doesn't fit. It may work well for the other troublesome plugs, like the #4 plug on the same vehicle, but not the tough one, even with the rubber steering column "collar" pulled out of the way.

      Comments about Gear Wrench 5/8" x 6" Magnetic Swivel Spark Plug Socket:

      I purchased this upon realizing that I did not have the correct size socket for my 1995 Honda Accord V6. I elected to buy this one largely due to the price alone. That decision was definitely influenced by the reviews. I would be lying, however, if I claimed that I actually expected the product to be as good as the reviews would seem to indicate.

      I was wrong. Very, very wrong. This was the perfect tool for the job, and while I was not initially happy with the moving joint, I found that this feature was insanely helpful. I likely would not have been able to get the back three plugs without the flexibility provided.

      I would recommend this over more costly products in a heartbeat due to its quality and functionality. It truly exceeds expectations.

        Great tool to have on hand. There is always a friend or family member in need of a spark plug socket and I have used it myself tons of times. The magnetic part is nice for plugs that are deep in some engine blocks and the swivel proves very useful in tight situations.

                    This was a great buy for me. I used it on a 98 Honda Civic, and it was a little short. I could have used it without an extension, but i chose to use a 2" extension with it, and it worked fine. The magnet is really strong. and the head swivels also.

                          This socket is a must for plugs. I actually bought a smiliar one from autozone but it broken on the very first plug. I was at adavance picking up something and I saw this one. Great magnet on it. Fits the plugs perfect. Great hold on the plugs. Overall I would buy this brand again.
