Husky Socket Set
Finding that perfect Christmas gift for my husband, my dad and my brothers is always difficult, and every year I try to be a little creative. Sometimes the creativity is a hit, but at times it is not a success at all. Most of the time I am better off just asking the men in my life, exactly what they want. Although they are not into wishlists, I am usually able to get one or two wishes out of everyone, and this year my husband asked for a socket set

I found something much better though, a combination stubby and socket set. The Husky 45-Piece Stubby Combination Wrench and Socket Set from Iron Bridge Tools is the perfect holiday gift for my husband. This stubby and socket set is compact, comes in an easy to carry case, and it has everything my husband wished for and more. 

The Husky stubby wrench, rachet and ratcheting screwdriver all seem very sturdy, and it is easy to get a great grip on the tools. With rubber grip handles on the the tools to prevent slipping, these Husky tools are easy to use in hard-to reach places, and they have a very comfortable grip.

The Ratcheting screwdriver has indexing capability up to 180 degrees, and it can lock into nine different positions.

This Husky stubby and socket sets includes some of the most commonly used bits and sockets. Take a look at the bits and socket included in this combination pack. 

The Husky 45-Piece Stubby & Socket Set:

  • 1/4 in & 3/8 in Ratchet
  • Stubby Wrench
  • Ratcheting Screwdriver
  • 12 S.A.E. Sockets: (5/32, 3/16, 7/32, 1/4, 9/32, 11/32, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16 & 5/18 in)
  • 13 Metric Sockets: (4, 4.5, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15 mm)
  • 1/4 x 3/8 Adaptor
  • Screwdriver Adaptor
  • 15 Screwdriver Bits: Slotted: (SL 5/32, SL 3/16, SL 1/4), Phillips: (PH 1 (2), PH 2(2), PH3), Hex: (H 1/8, H 1/4) and Torx: (T 15, T 20, T 25, T 27 & T 30)

I actually think I need a combination stubby and socket set to keep in the house as well, because I have already found lots of uses for it. I recently had to put together a seesaw for my boys, and I was surprised to realize that not only did I not have the proper tool in the house, but my husband did not have one in his work van either. The Husky stubby and socket set was just what I needed, and I quickly pulled out the ratcheting screwdriver with the proper tool, the T15 Torx tool. 

This stubby and socket set might be perfect for my hard-working husband, but it surely works well for a hands-on stay-at-home mom too. The other day I had to put together a Christmas present for the kids, which entailed a lot of screws. I had a very difficult time with some of the screws, because my regular screwdriver was too large, and the short screwdriver that my husband brought home for me to finish the project was too bulky and difficult to hold on to. Since then I have gone through all the screws with the Husky ratcheting screwdriver and its accompanying bits, and it was much easier for me to use in those hard to reach places. The racheting screwdriver is the perfect length, has a much better grip than my regular screwdriver thanks to the rubber handle, and the fact that I could switch the bits to fit the screws I was using just made putting together the toy much easier.
