Impact tools save time and handle high torques with less effort and more safety. Wright Tool makes impact sockets and attachments for almost every size and drive for which we make a hand socket because no hand socket is recommended for impact gun use. Wright impact tools are stronger and tougher to withstand the repeated high loads produced by impact guns, which are often higher than can be produced by hand. Wright impact sockets are always black, not only to distinguish them from hand sockets, which are usually plated, but also to avoid the chipping which could occur when a plated socket is subjected to thousands of cycles of very high loads.
(Wright and other manufacturers make some black finish hand tools for specialized applications. These are not
for impact use.)
Wright 6 pt. sockets use the patented Wright Drive® design for greater strength and longer life. Wright Tool also manufactures 12 pt. impact sockets with our Wright Drive® design.
