Designed to enable a user to break loose fasteners, the T-Handle’s adjustable collar can be locked into one of three positions. This will help maintain a grip when trying to get hard-to-reach fasteners, according to Craftsman.
The T-Handle kit comes equipped with a ¼-inch bit adapter and 15 bits to work with various fastener sizes. With the square drive on the handle’s grip, users can get three times more torque when compared to the long arm square drive.
Additionally, the T-Handle collar has been tested to over 1,700 rotations per minute (RPM).
The kit is available for $39.99 at www.craftsman.com or Sears stores nationwide (Sears.com).

Craftsman Mach Series Drive Ratchet
Craftsman’s ratchet combines three tools in one: push twisting screwdriver, ratcheting screwdriver and 3/8-inch drive ratchet. Equipped with 72 teeth and a five-degree arch, this drive ratchet is 16 times more efficient than a traditional ratchet, according to Craftsman.
Featuring an expandable, reversible helix shaft, the ratchet delivers 1.5 revolutions per stroke. For better maneuverability in tight places, the roto flex head rotates 270 degrees.
To maintain a better grip, the dual material handle features a reversing adjustment, and the head and collar can switch from forward to reverse.
The ratchet is available for $49.99 at www.craftsman.com or Sears stores nationwide (Sears.com).
