Impact Sockets & Accessories


Tristar international impact sockets are designed for professional tool users. They are engineered specifically for use.with impact tools using the most up to date industrial specifications.

Impact sockets are made with thicker walls and tempered to a lower hardness so as not to shatter under the impacts. They are typically finished in black oxide rather than the chrome plating typical of the hand-tool variety. Hand-tool sockets should never be used with impact wrenches as they will shatter.

Since impact sockets are used in demanding applications, impact sockets are designed to sustain the impacts. Look inside the square drive hole for a mark in the metal that looks like it's been gouged with a fingernail. This indicates that the drive has been formed by pushing a rod through the metal during the forging process, resulting in a stronger surface. Check where the six inside walls of the socket meet. Rounded corners let the walls of the socket grip a bolt, rather than the weaker edges. Inner walls that meet at sharp points are likely to crack under heavy use.

Impact sockets are available in different sizes and types. A few common types that are used are as under:

1. 6 Point Standard Impact Sockets
2. 6 Point Deep Impact Sockets
3. 12 Point Standard Impact Sockets
4. 12 Point Deep Impact Sockets
5. 4 Point Standard
6. 8 Point Standard
7. Thin Wall Impact Sockets -Standard
8. Thin Wall Impact Sockets-Deep

Sizes range from¼, 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1.1/2", 2.1/2", 3.1/2" for the driver end and for the driven unit the sizes range from 5mm to 150mm depending upon driver size and type ot socket.



Extensions bars sometimes called "extender arms", attach to a socket on one end and a ratchet on the other end of the extension. These "extend" the length of the socket and allow access to nuts or bolts that are difficult to reach.

Universal joints are two articulated socket joints (about 1" long) combined at a right angle that allow a bend in the turning axis of the wrench socket. They are used with extensions and ratchets for turning a bolt or nut at a difficult to access location.

Adapters allow sockets of one drive size to be used with another ratchet drive size. They consist of the following type

• Ratchet Handle allows the socket to be twisted by twisting the/atchet handle around the handle axis. It    requires less than 1 degree arc swing to rotate socket-ideal for very tight spaces.

• Swivel handle ratchets are socket wrenches in which the drive head pivots or swivels back and forth on    the handle, to allow the socket handle movement to avoid obstructions when being turned in a cramped    space. Some ratchet heads swivel the whole ratchet head.

• Sliding T-Handle Sizes range from 3/8", 1/2", 1", 1.1/2", 2.1/2", 3.1/2" for the driver end and for the    driven unit the sizes range from 5mm to 150mm depending upon driver size and type of socket.

• L Handle sizes range from ¼” square drive to 1” square drive and length varies from 125mm to 600mm

• Retaining Pins & “O” Rings are available for all sizes of impact sockets ie. From ¼” square drive to 3.1/2”    square drive.
