About Ratchets & Sockets

A ratchet is a mechanical device that allows continuous linear or rotary motion in only one direction while preventing motion in the opposite direction. Though something of a misnomer, 'ratchet' is also often used to refer to ratcheting socket wrenches, a common tool with a ratcheting handle. The most common form of socket wrench is a hand tool in which a metal handle is attached to a ratcheting mechanism which attaches to a socket which in turn fits on a given size and type of bolt or nut. Socket wrenches are often called ratchets
