Review – Halfords 40 Piece Socket Set

Description of Item We have a socket set with us for carrying out basic repairs on our motorhome and mountain bike. It has a 1/2″ driver, and a good range of metric and imperial sockets. It comes in a plastic carry case.

How We Use It It’s mainly been used to repair Dave! We’ve had various things go wrong with our motorhome while on the road, and having a socket set has enabled us to repair many of them ourselves.
What Do We Love?
  • It’s good quality. I’ve had the kit for years and the wrench has taken some repeated abuse without failing.
  • The range of sockets is good and it fits most of the nuts on our van.
  • The carry case is tough and has kept all the sockets together and in good condition over the years.
And What’s Not so Great?
  • I can’t think of anything, it is a great bit of equipment.
Our Summary I wondered whether it would be worth bringing this socket set when we left the UK. I needn’t have, it has been really useful and I’d recommend anyone taking an extended trip to get one, along with some dual-ended spanners (ones which have one size on one end and another size on the other, saving space and weight). I also have a small range of screwdrivers. Five stars from us.
