Editor's Notes & Price Research

The diamond-coated tips increase friction and reduce slippage. Fold up ball-end hex keys lock at 90° and 180° so you'll have the right angle to reach that stubborn fastener.

Note that the metric hex key set is also on sale for $8.99 right now. This set usually hovers around a sale price of around $18. I got this at around $14.99 and have been watching the metric set for a while and I had never seen the price this low. The tool itself works very well -- it doesn't slip and you can go in at a bit of an angle because of the ball tip.

hmm not sure why I need these but I got both. $11 after shipping/tax using freecash I didn't know I had and was about to expire. Not bad. On the surface they look like a great way to strip hex head bolts

Yes and no. In general, because of the relatively small contact patch, a ball end is much more likely to strip the bolt than a straight end, however the diamond coating on the tips of these make them grip better than most.

But if you have the access space to use a straight end, I would always opt for that first unless you know that the bolt won't be very tight.

I bought this for one reason: it's awesome for tightening up my sink.

I agree for most items in the Extreme line, but the diamond coated tips on many of their driver options actually work great. While I like the tips of this tool and the ball ends can provide better access to obstructed bolts, the utility of that is somewhat negated by the short little arms and bulky body.
