Regardless of whether you're a full-time mechanic or just an occasional DIY-er, a good socket wrench is likely to be one of your most-used tools. The only problem is that finding the right attachment for the job at hand can be tedious and time consuming. If you have one of these universal models, though, you never need to struggle again, as they're able to instantly conform to nearly any bolt.

Editor's Notes

February 18, 2019:

The smartly-designed handle on the RAK Multi-Function went a long way towards helping it claim the top spot (and all the extra included hardware didn't hurt, either). We favored durable models as well, but be forewarned that none of the models on this list are likely to be able to stand round-the-clock use. They're all inexpensive enough, however, that you shouldn't go bankrupt even if you need to replace them once or twice a year. We included the Dfute 360 despite its different appearance to appease traditionalists who want the sturdiest sockets possible.
