KENOSHA, Wis. – September 28, 2010 – To experience one of the smoothest and strongest ratchets on the planet, look no further than Snap-on’s 3/8-inch drive flex head ratchet (FLF80).

“If you want power, precision and performance with your ratchet then there is no better choice than the Snap-on FLF80,” said Mark Knapp, product manager for Snap-on. “This is truly a ‘must have tool’ if you want to increase your productivity and efficiency.  Since it is manufactured with Dual 80™ Technology, the FLF80 has 25 percent less ratcheting arc than our previous model and requires only 4.5 degrees of swing arc to engage the next gear tooth.”

  • Strength and durability
    •  Up to 300 ft. lbs. (3000 inch lbs.) of ultimate torque
    • Seven teeth in contact with gear to provide strength and durability
  • Accessibility
    • Dual 80TM has 25 percent less ratcheting arc than Snap-on’s previous design and requires only 4.5 degrees of swing arc to engage the next gear tooth
    • Snap-on’s ratchet and socket together have the lowest height of any product on the market so it slips right into those tight spots like no other ratchet
  • Low ratcheting torque
  • Sealed head helps keep dirt out of the head mechanism
