230º Pivoting Head
Offering a continuous sweep through a usable 230° arc, the pivoting head lets you approach your work from any angle. Since there are no preset head positions, you can move fluidly around obstructions along the path of your handle swing. An internal spring controls the tension of the head, allowing it to hold its position while installing sockets and placing on fasteners.
Stronger External Head
The head, made of AISI 4140 steel and heat treated in a material-matched process, is stronger and more ductile than the handle. Designing the "fork" geometry into the head (an external head design) instead of into the handle (an internal head design) results in a stronger final product—one that better resists spreading, twisting, or fracturing in the fork.
Sleek, Comfortable Handle
We designed a sleek and simple handle that considers the many ways your hand interacts with the tool. It's completely circular in cross section along its entire length, with a straight, non-tapering neck. The finger rings are generously sized, with pronounced interior edges for traction and control. Especially useful for a two-handed grip, the inside edge of the pommel is well-defined to keep your hands from slipping off the end of the handle, while its outer circumference is rounded, allowing you to comfortably apply as much force as needed.
Accurate Working Length
To be clear and consistent about the size of our breaker bars (and ratchets), we use the actual working length (center of drive tang to end of handle), not the overall length of the tool. This avoids any misleading overstatement of size or capability caused by the difference between these measurements. As a result, Tekton tools may be a little longer than other similarly described tools in the market.
Our ratchets and breaker bars meet (and most far exceed) industry standards for important baselines like Proof Torque, a measure of strength verified by a single-cycle test that applies torque until the specified value is reached without failure or any permanent deformation.
