Despite how the TEKTON composite ratchets may appear to be “made of plastic”, they arent. They are metal ratchets with a composite shell to prevent damage to the things you are working on. Unlike a metal ratchet (that will scratch surfaces/paint), the TEKTON ratchets are completely encased in a shell of composite material that will prevent accidental damage.
In this video I will show you exactly what is “inside”, because I will completely remove the outer sheathing….exposing the metal ratchet hiding underneath.
I will also open the ratchet head itself, so you can see how the mechanism actually works.
These are extremely comfortable to use, they have excellent socket retention, a fine-tooth ratcheting mechanism, and are great for cold weather use….since they wont freeze your hands like a standard metal ratchet.
