Husky 45-Piece Stubby Set - Review
Husky has recently come out with a 45-piece set of little truncated tools, lovingly named the Stubby Set. They were nice enough to send us one and it didn’t take long before we realized that, although it‘s small and has a humiliating name, it’s a really great collection of useful tools.
The contents of the Stubby Set include a ratcheting screwdriver, a dual-drive ratchet (able to accept 1/4” sockets on one side and 3/8” sockets on the other) and an adjustable wrench. For accessories and bits, the Stubby Set comes with:
- 10 driver bits
- 13 SAE sockets (5/32” to 3/4”)
- 14 metric sockets (4mm to 17)
- Adapter for using the 3/8” ratchet with 1/4" sockets
- Extension bar
- Adapter for using the 1/4" sockets with the screwdriver
The tools are all solid in the hands and the wrench has almost no wiggle to the lower jaw (a good thing). The head of the ratchet pivots 90 degrees each direction, giving the tool the ability to fit just about anywhere, particularly those tight spaces under the hood of your car.
But these tools aren’t just for motorheads. It would be a great set for around the house and also would be valuable as a compact set for any tradesman. Perfect for those of you who run into bolts from time to time, but not often enough to justify lugging around a larger 100+ piece set.
And the best part of it all is that the Stubby Set only costs $15. Yep, that’s right. 15 bucks for the entire set. It might be a little early to start thinking about Father’s Day, but…
The Stubby Set comes with a carrying case and is available only at Home Depot.
