Impact sockets differ primarily in the size of the landing square. The size of their seat is in inches, measured from wall to wall. Depending on the number and shape of the facets, the sockets are also divided into several types. For instance, hexagonal ones have longitudinal grooves that are made at the base of the facets, the effort is distributed not to the edges, but more to the center. With twelve-sided sockets, it is more convenient to work in difficult places, since the turning step is smaller, it will be easier to work in hard-to-reach places. All impact sockets have a ratchet locking mechanism. Impact sockets can also vary in length. Elongated ones are used if the nut or bolt is buried. Candle impact sockets can be equipped with a retainer or a magnet in order to grip the candle when removing.

There is a broad selection of impact sockets that are sold at Prime Buy.
