      Comments about Irwin Expansion 5 Pc Set Pliers:

      This is a great set of tools. They are high-quality, and do a nice job. A nice feature of these, that you do not find in other bolt removers, is the hex pattern on the shank. This allows you to put a wrench on the tool, if for some reason you do not want to use a ratchet. These helped me remove very rusted bolts during exhaust work. Combine these with a handheld induction heater and never fear a rusty bolt again!

          Worked perfectly first time. You can use sockets, wrenches or plug the ratchet drive directly into it. Tried multiple other ways to remove a stripped bolt without success. Great buy. Does only support 3/8" drive but I had a part to step the 1/2" drive on my torque wrench down to 3/8"

          I attempted to use this to remove some stripped out lug nuts. The item would attach correctly but it was only 3/8" drive and I needed a 1/2" drive in order to turn it and pull off the stripped lugnuts. Would be ideal for smaller nuts and bolts that are rounded off.

          For everyone who has struggled with stubborn and stripped nuts and bolts, this is the answer to your prayers! I was removing my H-pipe from my '98 Mustang GT when I came across this stubborn nut that was in a difficult place to reach. I had no luck with blaster PB, and stripped the nut using a deep socket. I heard about the Irwin bolt grip sockets, and bought the original set, only to find that the size I wanted was in the expansion set. This is my only complaint, that this product is sold in two sets. Still, I reccomend purchasing both sets because it is WELL WORTH THE PRICE! The socket held on tight to the STRIPPED nut and finally got it loose! And the socket still looks brand new, no damage at all, and I used my legs to provide the force! Both sets come with a wide range of sizes, perfect for any job that is unneccesarily difficult.
