husky hang tag # 1003 433 695 with bonus 15 inch ratchet!
« on: November 17, 2020, 07:35:12 PM »
i was in the home depot yesterday and as usual i scrounge the clearance tags. i spied this covered with dust and a little rashy from store abuse. i have been jonesing for super  long 3/8 ratchet for quite some time. the truck branded ones are far north of 100 bucks and out of my range. i am a fan of the danaher style
single pawl ratchet so even though this appears to be a dual pawl version it is pretty close and a hell of a lot cheaper!

right at 15 inches and just under twice as long as my 88 click armstrong aerospace.

here is a family shot. gearwrench 120 and 88 click. armstrong and matco  88 click. armstrong 60 click locking flex  and the bastard children husky locking flex and and long with 100 clicks each.

they look pretty similar on the front but the back side similarity is unmistakable.

Great find -- I've had damn good luck with the HF version myself.

That'll be a handy ratchet when the time arises!

i hope so. not a lot of bling there but i know they work. those danaher/gearwrench clones are good value in the husky line. they offer some variety in a budget that is not often seen. this long ratchet  and the locking flex are good examples.

That will come in handy and also keep you from messing up the pipe you would use as a leverage multiplier on a shorter ratchet
:))

So what was the damage to rescue that out of clearance purgatory


I need to find the clearance bins at the local stores, never paid attention to them.

i believe it was marked at about 30 and was only a few dollars off. it has a few scuffs. i assume it had been dropped on the concrete floor or into the pile of loose wrenches in bins below it a few times. i would guess a super long ratchet isn't a super huge seller in a lumber/hardware store. it appears to have been waiting a long time for a good home.  :))

I picked up one of those myself several months ago and it's been a good ratchet when needed, though as you discovered already the finish is not extremely durable. All in all a worthwhile tradeoff for what you get.
