When it comes to DIY projects, one socket size rarely fits all. So, for light jobs around the house, the 16-in-1 Black & Decker socket wrench can come in handy. Its official name is the ReadyWrench.
The ReadyWrench won't replace a complete socket set, but because it features the 16 most popular socket sizes, it can simplify your work. The tool fits SAE sizes (5/16 inch, 3/8 inch, 7/16 inch, 1/2 inch, 9/16 inch, 5/8 inch, 11/16 inch, 3/4 inch) and metric sizes, too (8mm, 10mm, 11mm, 13mm, 14mm, 16mm, 17mm, and 19mm).
The head rotates to 45 and 90 degrees so the tool can be used for ratcheting in tight places, when needed.
The ReadyWrench comes with a lifetime warranty and is available at most hardware stores and on Amazon.com for $30. If you're looking for an inexpensive, suitable gift for a DIY homeowner, the ReadyWrench could be your fit.
