At first i was just going to say the design could be improved significantly, but after breaking it on the first use, i am going to revise that and say avoid at all costs. It cost way more than it is worth. Get yourself a standard T-handle from Tusk and save yourself $20 and lots of headaches for returning it. First, the design. It has only 2 ball bearings for the alloy tube that allows you to spin it. They are in line around the t handle at 0 degrees and 180 degrees. When you spin it to tighten or loosen it works relatively smoothely as long as you are parallel to the deck. If you are wokring with the tool perpindicular to the deck, i.e. you have the tool straigh up and down, it wobbles incessantly. Placing another 2 ball bearings at the top of the spin handle would have negated this effect. Not the end of the world, but designed to save the company a few more ball bearings... really, how much do ball bearings cost? The deal breaker was after the first use i pulled the socket off the end of the T-handle and the ball bearing and springs that keep the socket on, shot off. I can't believe the spring landed where i could see it, but the ball bearing was lost. This is absolute crap. Stick with hand tools made in the USA if you want it built correctly, or if you just want cheap, go with a Tusk $5 t-handle. Don't waste you money on this garbage. I am returning as defective and will be greatly more reluctant to order motion pro tools in the future. I know they are made in china, and i think at one time the quality control was better, but not very sure now.
This is a useful tool, however, the one I received had a little issue with the collar. It seems as though there was supposed to be to ball bearings inside the blue collar and mine was missing one so basically I just have a long T handle socket drive as opposed to a spinjing one. That being said, I still have found times where it is a useful tool
Not a must have tool, but the rotating sleeve on the shaft is very handy. In particular, it definitely helps hold the tool steady when spinning the T-Handle end. It's very useful in speedily removing and replacing, nuts and bolts from recessed areas.
One key advantage of the rotating sleeve, is when you have an application that requires maintaining in ward pressure on the T-Handle when spinning it. As the sleeve is locked in place from sliding along the shaft, it provides a good grip point for holding uniform pressure on the nut or bolt, as you spin the T-handle.
I have always used the individual T-handle tools before, but I like this tool and individual sockets much better. The spinner handle makes it much easier and quicker to use on long threaded screws. Squirt a little lube between the handle and shaft for even better operation.
This spinner t-handle is pretty cool. When I first got it, the handle didn't spin smooth, it was pretty rough. I removed the blue holder and added some grease in the groove where a small keeper pin holds the handle in place. Lubing it up like that made a big difference. Now it spins nicely.
Good T-handle for someone looking to have just 1 and swap on and off their own sockets. Spins very smooth and nice to have ''wobble'' when needed. It does push off the ''fixed'' socket position from time to time to the ''wobble'' position. If I had to order again I would probably order the non-wobble unit. I find I don't need wobble that much plus I have swivels i can swap on easily when needed. Its a big t-handle so at times I find I can't get at things but thats the life of tools. Overall a nice unit and very nice price, in my opinion I would just prefer the no ''wobble'' unit.
I never understood whey MX riders love their T-handles. Now I do. This one is the best one out there. Fits in a toolbox, and I use with hex sockets, allen and torx sockets. It's faster and easier to use than an electric impact wrench. Love it!
