The 4IN1 Multi-Socket Nut Driver

Invest in 4in1 nut driver toolSave space in your toolkit and the time for finding the exact attachment you need. Instead of having separate parts for different hex socket sizes, this new, versatile, and compact 4IN1 nut driver is a handy tool for your pocket or pouch. It’s designed for superior performance, ease of use, and long service life. With four different hex socket size options (1/4”, 5/16”, 3/8”, 7/16”), a quick-release lock secures telescoping shafts in position, which prevents it from collapsing when significant pressure is applied during use. Hardened chrome vanadium steel sockets offer fastener engagement and control, while its non-slip 3-lobe handle offers additional comfort and control on the job. The convenience of this already low-cost tool is worth the extra investment.

A great upgrade to splurge on is Malco’s TurboCrimper® Impact driver attachment, which will save you time and effort. Based on actual field trials, the TurboCrimper® Impact is 78% faster than using a manual sheet metal crimping tool!

“I can’t believe I waited this long to buy these! Cuts through sheet metal like butter! Seriously, I have always cut sheet metal with aviation snips and tin snips. These make the toughest cuts easy, such as tight corners and length-wise metal roofing. Seems well built and setup takes 10 seconds. Great product!”- 5-Star Review by Mary Gifford on Malco Website
