Vantage Tools offer a huge range of individual sockets for both general day to day automotive repair work as well as more specialised sockets such as deep impact, hex bits and bolt removal.

The majority of our standard socket ranges come in either 6 or 12pt options so you can be sure to find the exact tool for your application. The 12pt socket is considered to be more than adequate for general use, however when it comes to harder automotive tasks, or that stubborn bolt that just will not loosen then 6pt is generally considered to be a better choice. 6 points feature thicker walls which reduces flex, they are also less likely to slip or round off a bolt head as a bigger contact area is made.
