Husky Socket Ratchet Set 702200 Review

While  repairing rocking chairs and bikes, we bought this 16-piece Husky socket and ratchet set. Why?  Because it has popular socket sizes for fasteners found around the house, and these came in quite handily in this repair project.

Husky Socket Ratchet Set 702200 Intro

Firstly, this universal socket wrench set cost around $30.  Moreover, it comes with a “forever” guarantee.  It also has a nearly all metal build, with a hardened shank on the wrench itself.

Benefits, Features, Pros, and Advantages  of the 702200 Husky Socket Ratchet Set  

Handy Plastic Holder Case

Moreover, the unit features snap-in places for all pieces in the included case, that tightly secure them.  So this prevents loss.  It further eases putting away this tool when you’re finished with it.

Standard Driver

Also, this kit includes a rugged 3/8′ teardrop driver wrench with a 72-tooth ratchet. So this standard sized ratchet works with chucks from other wrench sets as well.

This Husky Socket Ratchet Set Features Common Socket Sizes, Both English and Metric

Comes with 14 universal sockets.  English (SAE) sizes include: 5/16”, 3/8”, 7/16”, 1/2”, 9/16”, 5/8”, and 11/16”.  Metric (MM) sizes include: 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 17mm, and 18mm.

Chrome Plated

This fights rusting, and makes each piece quite shiny. So its easy to spot on dark floors and in tool chests.

Hardened Shank

The ratchet has a black iron, case-hardened bit, which snaps snuggly into the sockets.  Further, it’s strong enough to tighten or loosen the toughest nuts and bolts.

Sockets Fit Many Standard Nuts and Fasteners

These include…

  • E-Torx.
  • Square / box nuts.
  • 6-point.
  • 12-point.
  • 6-point 50% rounded.
  • Spline.

Sure Grip Sockets

Each deep socket bit securely fits over top of the nut or fastener, and grabs it strongly.  No slippage or nut-stripping grinding when loosening frozen nuts; even if you tap the driver handle with a hammer.

This Husky Socket Ratchet Set has a Limited Forever Warranty

For details on this lifetime+ guarantee, call 1-800-HD-HUSKY (1-800-444-8759).


We paid roughly $30 for ours at Home Depot, and did not mind doing so. Given how well this ratchet set is built we may never need another.

Easy to Find

Buy this Husky socket set at Home Depot, Amazon, eBay, et al.

Disadvantages, Drawbacks, Problems, and Limitations of the 702200 Husky Ratchet and Socket Set  

Not Made in the US.

Actually, our copy of this universal socket set was manufactured in Taiwan.

Not Insulated

All parts of this Husky socket set are made of practically all metal, and so, can conduct electricity.  So avoid working on live circuits with this tool.

Easily Scratched Finish

However, be careful not to drop these pieces on stones or concrete too many times, because you could mar or dull the silvery chrome finish on them.

But where ratchets are often used, dropping them is common.  But this set is cheap enough to replace, should it get too scratched up.  Then again, how shiny the chrome is does not affect how well this tool works.  The sockets work great, dull or bright.
