6 Point Socket
Price $ 5.00 each (+6.00 s&h) - free shipping when ordered with the lift
To operate the EZcarlift a 3/8" socket will be required. We do provide a socket adapter with new lifts for connecting your drill to the socket. The adapter has a 1/4" hex to mount to the drill's chuck and a 3/8" drive for the socket.
But some of our customers have trouble finding a suitable deep socket. In our experience, a truly deep socket works best. Most commonly found deep sockets have a 1/2" to 5/8" (12 to 16mm) deep hex and a through hole for the bolt's shaft. A truly deep socket has 1-1/2" (38mm) deep hex. A shallow socket will ride on the ball of the drive shaft whereas the deep socket will go past the ball into the hex drive, providing better contact. Our preference is using a 6 point socket, it just lasts longer. The 12 pointers tend to strip quicker.
