This is what I️ was going to say. I️ have the Craftsman set, and yes it's identical. I'll also back up what you said about the universal design...it's a jack of all trades and a master of none. I️ haven't dared use it on my car, for example. A mechanics 6-point toolset has almost entirely replaced this as far as actual use goes—more contact, more force, less chance of stripping, etc. The lack of pass-thru is rarely worth the trade offs. This sort of set is best for lightweight use.

I have multiple GearWrench 6-point pass-thru sets. It is rare that I actually need to pass a bolt through the socket, but the other advantages compared to normal square drive sockets are significant. The most important of which for me is that the socket fits up into the wrench so it is less bulky and the pull on the wrench is more in-line with the fastener.

Looks like almost identical sockets to this Craftsman set.

Having the socket fit up into the wrench instead of hanging off of a square peg is great design, however I would quickly pass on the "universal" spline drive and look for a 6-point pass-thru set instead.

I love my pass through set from Kobalt....there are so many applications where these are needed...while they are limited in size and compatibility, they can be adapted to serve as extra-extra deep socket use with traditional ratchets and many other uses.

If you consider yourself a DIYer....get a pass through set....there are plenty of uses where a set like this is the ONLY simple solution...

Harbor Freight has a set with coupon $19+-
But the nice thing is you can use a 3/4 (?) Inch wrench not just the provided ratchet. That is any 3/4 (?) Wrench will work with the sockets. Sorry don't remember the exact wrench size.

I've used them a few times at work and they can come in handy. It's a lot more low profile and makes it easier to get into tight places with access to more larger sockets.

The amazon one and two star reviews are all I need to read. Typical Chinese crap. Good bye.

This might be good for the casual use. But from Having a car shop, You never want an all in one. Will fail you when you need the most.
