    • 13/16’’ Penta
    • 3/4’’ Hex
  • 5-Point Penta socket works with security bolts commonly used in underground distribution work
  • 6-Point Hex socket is easier to position
  • Deep well socket with 1/2’’ drive works great for hardware installation and removal

“Klein Tools’ new Penta Hex Flip Socket with Adapter is a must have for linemen who use impact wrenches,” says Sean Garvey, associate product manager at Klein Tools. “Not only does it feature both the 13/16’’ Penta and the 3/4’’ Hex socket sizes, but also a 1/2’’ to 1/2’’ square adapter with a ball detent to help prevent unintentional separation from the socket when in use. The socket is designed to be used with an impact driver and is the perfect companion to Klein’s Impact Wrench (Cat. Nos. BAT20CW and BAT20CW1).”
