Gearwrench 7-Piece Ratcheting Wrench Sets (Metric and SAE) with bonus 3/8" Gimbal $15 at NAPA YMMV

I found them in store. If I am not mistaken a store that has the option to "Reserve Online, Pickup in Store Tomorrow" should have 1 or more currently in stock.
Employees snatch these up. FYI

SAE:

METRIC:
https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/APA9417P

Theres a few other clearance GW sets too, 60 or so percent off the screwdriver set.. $28
Also some 5 or 6 piece ratcheting wrench sets..pricewise those werent as good as the ones above.

ALSO their old 'Everbuilt' line (some of which is made in Taiwan) is about 75% off on loose sockets and wrenches and screwdrivers. Lifetime Warranty on that line and they said they will honor it with a Carlyle in the event it breaks YMMV Im sure...

These are junk, and good luck with any warranty claim, stay away!

All the stores around me show $49.99 (on line price). Would the in store price be $15? The web pages do say reserve online, pick up available. But will the price be $15. That's the $64k question.

not sure. my napa familiarity is low. when i open the link it knows my location and pulls up $15 for all local stores that i checked... sounds like a huge ymmv for your location.

definitely not junk. lifetime warranty, but i dont have experience with it.
notably they lack some features.. not much off set, no flexhead, no reverse switch, 72 tooth is a bit dated... whatever. i wanted a gimbal.. my biggest complaint is both gimbals are 3/8... wish one was 1/4

You must return the whole set with its packaging for a warranty claim. Might be location specific. Ymmv.

Years ago they were Taiwan-made. Now they are China-made since 2014. If you are lucky, you can find old stock of their Taiwan-made.

My local Napa the sets they have are Chinese, and really poor quality compared to the tawain made versions. It varies though. If you luck up and find old stock then they are really good wrenches. I've got a master set that we're some of the first ones sold and I've used them daily for close to twenty years now. I've had three to break all because I abused them beyond their torque limits.

They can be either or. I've noticed the ones at major retailers in the black plastic trays and blister cards are Chinese. The ones off the tool trucks and sold by tool distributors in the gray Molded trays and rolls are still the better Taiwan build.

I bought a similar set last year and like it, although I found the bigger-sized ones to be a bit too thin for applying extra torque, especially without gloves.

Btw, while on the topic of wrenches, I replaced the outer tie rods on my Kia Rio last year and the wrench flats and jam nut were both too big for any of my wrenches, so I had to use crescent wrenches, which is bad practice because they can round fasteners. Anyone know if there's a standard size for such fasteners? I'd like to get standalone open-end wrenches in the right size to have on hand in case I ever need to adjust them for toe-in. I'm guessing they're anywhere from 20mm to 23mm, so I'm wondering whether to get a 20-22 or 21-23. Perhaps one of each since I'll need both for the tie rods.

your best bet is to measure.
