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.

            Must-have for spark plug changes

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

            This is a must-have for spark plug changes. The head on this tool swivels slightly to allow it to easily maneuver into the spark plug cavity, even in tight confines. The socket is magnetic also, which allows you to use it one-handed if necessary without worrying about dropping the plug. I used this on a 2006 Honda Odyssey and it was perfect.

                      Hi Leo, I'm glad to assist you! This Gear Wrench Magnetic Swivel Spark Plug Socket - Part No. 80546D/80546 is universal and is not application specific. You would have to match one by size to what is on the vehicle that can be fabricated into its place. Its fastner size is 5/8"-inch and drive tang size is 3/8"-inch. It meets or exceeds ASME B107.34.
