Ratchet spanners have a closed, ring-shaped head and a ratcheting function, essential across various trades and home improvers. They’re a particular favourite for working on cars and bikes.
What Are Ratchet Spanners For?
The closed head on a ratchet spanner has a multi-toothed ring inside it. Ratchets can hold when turning in one direction and release when going the other way. This makes it possible to tighten and loosen nuts and bolts without removing the tool.
A ratchet spanner also has a thinner profile than a socket wrench, making it suitable for adjusting nuts and bolts on flat surfaces. This helpful tool allows a continuous tightening movement for quicker and smoother applications of nuts and bolts.
We’ve got ratchet spanners available in a range of different sizes, so you’re bound to find the right tools for you when you shop at Toolstation. We also stock a selection of affordable ratchet spanner and wrench sets. If you’re looking for a multi-use product, a combination ratchet wrench is a great choice.
