KTC 1/4" Drive and 3/8" Drive Adapters (set of 2)

Brand new item! We are now offering these two ingenious three function adapters made by Kyoto Tool Company. These unique items are made in Japan from cast aluminum, so they will not rust or corrode. Dust off that poor ¼” drive ratchet and make it useful again! Instantly make it a more useful 3/8” drive ratchet! The other included adapter will make your 3/8” drive ratchet into a ½” drive. Not only do these increase the size on your current ¼” and 3/8” driver ratchets, but they have high powered magnets cast into them keep your sockets attached. And finally, the most attractive feature are the “wings” which extend past the ratchet head allowing your index finger and thumb to do the job of a second hand. Whether you're starting the threading process, or finishing the very last turn of a fastener, you can now do it all with the same hand! You will receive two items total: one ¼” drive to 3/8” drive adapter, and one 3/8” drive to ½” drive adapter. These adapters have been so useful to us, they have not been removed from our ratchets since we've received them!

KTC 13mm square Differential Sockets
Is it time for a rear differential fluid change in your Subaru? This is the PROPER socket to remove and tighten those square differential plugs! Made by KTC (Kyoto Tool Co.) from Japan. Most people end up stripping and/or rounding-off the differential plugs by forcing an ill fitting and wobbly 1/2” drive ratchet or 1/2" drive extension in that square rear differential plugs. Anyone who has performed this task before knows the ridiculous amount of effort used when you don't have the right tool. We strongly suggest our KTC 13mm differential socket. It fits right up to those plugs perfectly square so you are able to loosen and tighten with confidence.

  • Made in Japan

  • Heat treated for strength
  • Superior to Chrome Vanadium for use with impact equipment
  • Includes 17mm, 19mm, and 21mm
  • Fits all popular Japanese and European lug nut sizes
  • Has the strength of standard thick impact grade sockets
  • Great for use at the track with cordless/rechargeable impact equipment
  • The 110mm (4.33") length is perfect for wheel styles w/ recessed lug nuts
  • Solid tapered shafts are superior in strength to traditional hollow impact sockets
  • Bright color coding by size for easy socket identification
  • Engineered with strength in mind for impact equipment, but can be used with typical 1/2" drive hand ratchets and breaker bars

As you can see above, Koken sockets have the identical outer diameter of your lug nuts. (17mm socket on a Hasegawa lug nut shown) They will not interfere with the paint or finish surrounding lug nuts on your wheels! This Koken socket set was engineered for use with impact guns in mind, however many of our customers use them with standard 1/2" drive breaker bars and appreciate the thin walled wheel protection, strength and color coding.
