If you have a cluttered workshop, it’s likely you’re always on the lookout for a new way to organize. Well, if you don’t already use a designated socket organizer, we highly recommend it. Instead of hunting for the right size, there’s a designated place for each one. We researched some of the top selling items to figure out what the very best products are. First, let’s look at some of the key features you need to know before you shop.
Material: These organizers are all made of plastic. Now, they do come in different colors and the clips are all just a little bit different. But at the end of the day, they’re all about the same strength.
Type:There are 2 different kinds of sockets, SAE and metric. SAE are measured in inches and fractions of inches and are also called fractional or standard sockets. Metric are, well, metric and are measured in millimeters.
Pieces: This refers to how many pieces the organizer comes with. A few have multiple trays or even a separate one for each kind of drive. Generally, the more pieces you have, the more organized you can be.
Capacity: Capacity refers to how many sockets each container can hold. We should mention that some of these are broken down between the different drives so you don’t have a lot of control over all of the size.
Size: This is the size of the actual organizer to show how large a footprint each one has. If you’re trying to find something for your toolbox or to attach to your worktable, you know exactly how much room you’ll need.
Warranty: Warranties vary but you’ll notice that a lot of these organizers come with some pretty good warranties. In fact, most of them have a lifetime warranty. That just goes to show how strong they really are.
