Square Drive Swivel Sockets and Universal Adapters
The use of Standard Universal Adapters and Swivel Sockets may compromise joint integrity preventing adequate torque from reaching the fastener. Studies have determined that when the swivel angle exceeds 15°, there may be significant ”scatter” or reduction in measured torque valves.
Omega Technologies has developed a line of Universal Adapters and Swivel Sockets that have a maximum tilt of 15°. Available for 1/4”, 3/8”, and 1/2” square drives, these tools are color-coded gold and black for easy identification. Machined from premium shock-resistant 4340 steel and heat-treated for toughness, these tools offer top performance and long life. For extremely tight places, a low-profile (LP) version of the 1/4” Swivel Sockets is also available.
Please note that these are not intended for use with impact tools.
