Bargain indeed if it does the job but as suggested use with care in case you fu*k the Hex on nut up.Being a tight arse I buy used 6 point sockets at an autojumble for a quid,I’d use a 1 1/4” on a 32 mm wheel nut as it would be a good tight fit

Tools ain’t wot they used to be lol. Ie not as well made.My brother has a car repair business and I borrowed a brand new unused Snapon torx socket to undo a bolt holding a brake caliper on my Harley,it broke but brother not concerned as it was replaced with lifetime guarantee

That’s a big boys socket. What do you need that for?

What's the point of a lifetime 'guarantee' when it only costs £2.35? If it lasts for a few uses then breaks, just buy another one. Tools might not be 'what they used to be' but these examples are much, much cheaper than anything you could have bought 30 years ago even when taking income/cost of living into account.
