Default Olsa Tools 3 Pcs Kit Aluminum Socket Organizer

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...0?ie=UTF8&th=1

I want to get to get my tools organized. I have had a few different socket tools organizers none of them worked that well.
I read the reviews on these and just got a set in. I am impressed so far and ordered another set.

The sockets go on and come off quickly. They are strong enough to keep sockets on even when you turn the upside-down.

The colored sockets are from Harbor Freight just knowing what color socket to grab is much simpler than trying to see the numbers on them.
They are very strong in the junk yard I have used 3/8 drive socked with a 24" breaker bar never broke a socket.

I have been through many socket rails of that style but that one looks better than most on the market. I like the aluminum rail and the spring ball detent. I like the lisle magnetic ones but they are still quite pricey.

I also have a few HF sockets and i have found them to be just as good as any others. Never broken one etc. Great place to buy those really big sockets you don't use often as well. Making sockets isn't rocket science but some companies charge prices like they are selling to NASA... Most of my tools are craftsman with a mixture of snap on, cornwell, mac, blackhawk etc thrown in the mix. Even some old Bonney wrenches.

Most of my socket are Craftsman buy I was having trouble seeing the numbers on them. I bought a set 1/4 drive colored sockets from HF and I use adapters to use a bigger Ratchet they performed much better than I thought they would. I liked the colors so much I kept buying more.
