    Cheap, Safe and Easy.

    Great to have around for a tune up. Helps keep your plugs in one piece and the magnet is a huge plus for retrieval.

    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:

      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 got that magnetic socket finally and boy let me tell you, I like it, I put a spark plug i it and sho nuff the results speak for themselves, it hold the spark plugs in place, strong magnet. I like the 360 degree swivel action, Perfect tool for what i need it for. I cant go wrong for it. This is gonna make the job easy, I recommend it for all spark plug replacements, if you have not got one of these yet, get you one and reveal the results for yourself, you'll be glad you did, and you won't regret from getting it and seeing what it has to do. I am just so ready to start changing the spark plugs on my 1997 Ford F-150 4.6 Liter V8 engine.Fits the plugs perfect. Great hold on the plugs. Overall I would buy this brand again.Makes installation a breeze. This is the perfect tool to help me out for spark plug replacement.I like the magnet especially, hold the spark plug in place as you loosen it and putt it out and as you put a new one in too. I sure need this tool for them deep holes on my 4.6 liter, boy they are way deep down in there, I do not want my next ride to be like that.

            I sure got to get me one of these magnetic spark plug socket for my 1997 Ford F-150 4.6 Liter engine cause the last 2 spark plugs on cylinders 4 and 8 way in the back I need a magnetic socket that will hold the spark plug in place when I am pulling it up out of there, better than a standard 5/8 socket. I hope this does the trick. I am glad it swivels especially. I use the 3/8 ratchet and extention. Time will tell how good the quality of it will be.

                    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.

                      I always used my regular sockets and extensions to change spark plugs and fought with some in the back. NEVER AGAIN! This was truly amazing to use and reduced my time spent and no knuckles split!

                          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.
