Matco Tools' New ADV Impact Sockets More Breadth, More Features, More Performance

Matco Tools’ New ADV Impact Sockets More Breadth, More Features, More Performance

Finally, impact sockets that work harder — so technicians don’t have to. The new Matco Tools ADV Impact Sockets are one of the broadest lines in the industry and have advantages over the competition that give technicians an edge not offered by other socket lines.

“Matco’s ADV Impact Sockets were designed with professionals in mind,” said John Green, vice president of marketing for Matco Tools.  “This new line will help technicians work faster, make their jobs easier and will deliver the superior quality, durability and consistent performance that Matco tool users have come to expect.”

Matco Tools prides itself on providing a comprehensive line of premium quality, professional tools with excellent service to back it up. Engineers in the Matco labs work to develop product features that work better in the real world and Matco’s ADV line of impact sockets is no exception.  The ADV line offers innovative features that set these impact sockets apart from the competition, such as:

• Matco’s proprietary Opti-Torque system that applies torque to the fastener sides. You get more power and cut the risk of rounding corners.

• High visibility laser and impression stamped markings that allow for easy and fast identification and accessibility even in poorly lit work areas.

• Parallel nose down design that lets technicians reach into tight corners instead of for more tools. That’s a big advantage over tapered nose impact sockets.

• A 150-degree chamfer on the socket end increases contact area between the socket and the fastener to improve grab and reduce the likelihood of rounding fastener corners.

• The tail down feature makes it fast and easy to remove sockets from pneumatic tools.

• High performance alloy steel is cold formed with an advanced heat treating process with precision quench and tempering for the ultimate in strength and durability.  They meet ANSI standards, of course.

• Precision manufacturing process guarantees dependability and consistent product performance year after year.

“We are constantly working to understand what our customers need and what will make their jobs easier,” Green said. “With the broadest line and best-in-class features, we are confident that our new ADV line will help our customers save time.”
Matco’s new ADV Impact Sockets are available from Matco Tools distributors with suggested retails from $33.18 to $1,398.29 for a 3/4-inch drive deep master set.  To locate a distributor in your area, call 1-866-289-8665.
