We've seen the ads on TV just like you have, and we scoffed just like you did. Once we tried it though, the scoffing was forgotten. The concept is simple and beautiful, and we wish we'd thought of it. We prowled around our warehouse with the Gator Grip and took stuff apart, much to the alarm of our coworkers. We've never been fond of the socket-fitting process, in which you try one socket for size, then another and another--and the Gator Grip does away with that. It accepts 1/4- to 3/4-inch nuts, bolts, screw eyes, wing nuts, and every kind of odd shape--in fact, a perfect job for the Gator Grip is the wing nut on our router. No more sore fingers! One caveat: it's an acquired touch, and our first few tries weren't very fruitful. Once you get the hang of it, though, you'll be hard pressed to put it down.
The Gator Grip Universal Socket is a universal socket that instantly adjusts to grip hex nuts, screw eyes, hooks, lag screws, and bolt heads. It features a wide range of adjustability that will fit standard 1/4-inch to 3/4-inch and metric 7mm to 19mm nuts and bolt heads. The tool's socket contains 54 hardened steel spring pins for long-lasting durability. When placed onto a fastener, the center pins retract and the outer pins surround the fastener. As the fastener is turned, the torque is transmitted through the outer pins to the walls of the socket, making this socket an ideal choice for heavy-duty personal or professional use. The tool features a 3/8-inch drive, and comes with a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty.
