Nut Driver Sets

Nut drivers feature a socket attached to a shaft with an attached handle to turn the tool for tightening or loosening nuts and bolts, similar to a screwdriver. For a secure fit, the socket wraps around and grabs the entire head of the fastener. Because they have greater contact with the fastener head than an open-end wrench, the socket is less likely to slip off as the nut driver is cranked. The hollow shaft of a nut driver allows a threaded bolt to pass through, allowing the tool to turn fasteners on lengthy threaded bolts. In comparison to wrenches or ratchets that may create more torque, they are utilized for low torque applications. Nut driver sets include a variety of nut drivers to accommodate a variety of fastener head sizes.
