In its continued tradition of providing technicians with reliable tools that improve productivity and mechanical prowess in the shop, Snap-on introduced its new Flank Drive Xtra (FDX) socket system. The first redesigned Snap-on socket since the patented Flank Drive system developed in 1965, the FDX takes the brand’s innovative socket and makes it even better, offering more turning power, a more secure fastener engagement and greater efficiency.

Standout benefits of the FDX socket system:

  • Small but mighty: in an improved design that grips fasteners further off the corners, the FDX offers up to 25 percent more strength than Flank Drive sockets.
  • Rounded corners: with its angled contour, the socket wall grips damaged fasteners more closely for 50 percent more turning power.
  • Upgraded shape: an optimally chamfered lip on both the hex and drive ends of the socket allows for a better grip and more turning power, especially for shallow-headed fasteners and fasteners with limited top clearance.
  • Efficiently engineered: FDX sockets feature grooved, grippable outer walls, a unique design feature that makes them easier to remove.
  • Easily identified: easier identification and improved readability are both achieved through large, distinctive markings on the socket exterior.
