    Hi everyone,

    For anyone looking for a breaker bar / lug wrench, this one does it all. It comes with 16, 17, 21, 22mm sockets and an 1/2" extension adapter. The sockets are dual ended hence why there's only two. When you're not using it, the handles are used as storage compartments. The sliding socket can be positioned in the middle to tighten or loosen the lug nuts or onto the far left / right to break out the lug nuts or perform your final torque before you drive off. The bar has 3 indents so you know where the socket will stop. The extension and sockets are both secured by detent pins so they're very secure.

    Overall I highly recommend this product for both at home use and in conjunction with your scissor jack in your trunk if you have one. I truly believe that every driver should have one of these, especially at a cost of only $30 USD. Currently Amazon and Home Depot have a phenomenal 4.5/5 and 5/5 stars rating for this product based on 60+ reviews.

    Made a mistake in the original post as I can't seem to edit anymore, the sockets are 17 and 19mm, not 16 and 17mm. My apologies.

    When the sliding socket is all the way to one end to use as a breaker bar, what is the length of the handle ?

    The entire bar is 20.5" long, from the socket on the furthest end is 14.5" long. IMG_20190929_060332.jpg IMG_20190929_060248.jpg

    Is there much room for the hands? Is the extension long enough?

    Or you could just buy a normal breaker bar, without the plastic handles that reduce the lever arm. This thing is pretty short for a breaker bar, which makes it not very effective in a situation where you actually need a breaker bar, and not just a tire iron.
