Lowe's Kobalt Rotator 3/8" Ratchet Set $19.98

We called the Stanley version of this the "Magic Ratchet" at my friend's performance car shop. Twisting the handle causes the head w/ socket to turn. Super time and arm saver. I walked by these yesterday on clearance and HAD to get one. The rest of the included stuff is whatever. Lifetime warranty which seems to be honorable - last time I returned a broken tool that was discontinued, they gave me a gift card for the full retail value of the tool.

Really just posting because as a car hobbyist and DIYer, I freaking love mine.

Anyhow,

Handle extends as well for increased leverage.

Complete your work in less time with two times the driving speed!
  • Dual gearing mechanism drives 2X faster than a standard ratchet when rotating handle is used
  • Extendable handle provides more leverage to loosen fasteners when needed
  • Extendable handle increases reach by 2 inches
  • Unique spline socket design allows work on multiple types of fasteners including metric and SAE 6-point, 12-point, spline, square, star and most rounded
  • Set also includes 12 insert bits and 3/8 x 1/4-inch bit adapter
  • Socket sizes include 8mm-5/16-in, 10mm-3/8-in, 11mm-7/16-in, 13mm-1/2-in, 14mm-9/16-in and 16mm-5/8-in
  • Sockets and ratchet are constructed of chrome vanadium steel and heat treated for strength and durability
  • Meets or exceeds ASME specifications
  • Hassle-free lifetime guarantee

Just a few bucks cheaper than the equivalent Stanley version on Amazon:

I've often thought that type of ratchet should exist. Turns (pun) out I wasn't looking hard enough.

I received a Lowe's gift card for Christmas and I've been struggling to find something I could use and didn't already have. This definitely qualifies. Thanks!

This is $5 off from the price they had most of the Christmas season. I've been thinking about this one for a while as it seems quite useful. Thanks.

Why is this one so expensive? I get it, good tools cost $, so why is it better than say, this [lowes.com]?

The tool in the OP functions differently than the one you linked. Some prefer the ergonomics of one over the other.

You can loosen/tighten a nut by twisting the handle. The motion is similar to using a screw driver, rather than a wrench.

Sorry for being a pain, but could anyone elaborate on what exactly is better about it?

For example, I like the ratchets with a hole in the middle, like this one [zoro.com], because it ends up smaller overall when assembled, thus getting into tighter spots. I don't immediately see such benefits of the one in OP. Again, I am sure I am missing something, and I will be happy to find it out, because a visit to Lowe's to see why one is better, say tomorrow, before they are sold out, is something I can't afford time-wise. Thanks!

Is that what the Wera Zyklop does as well? I've never used one.

I'm surprised they brought this item back. I posted the same item in 2014 when they were basically giving them away for $4.50 and there was a ton of stock at the time. If you don't need it asap I would hold out for a bigger price drop.

I don't believe HF has introduced one of these yet. Stanley has one that is normally around $20 on Amazon or via HD/Walmart. It has been cheaper through Stanley's store on eBay ($14 a couple years ago when I got mine) and sometimes cheaper in single quantity from random resellers.

I appreciate it!

For anyone else considering, Ebay has the Stanley Rotator Ratchet, tool only, for an average of $26.90. Home Depot and Wal-Mart have the tool only for $22.99.

I guess I'm in for one given the $2.00 MyLowe's savings, Mil discount, and comps.
