From Furniture Assembly To Auto Repairs, These Wrench Sets Can Handle It All

Whether you rent or own your home, like to do your own car repairs, need to put together furniture, or want to round out your tool kit, a quality and dependable wrench set can turn a difficult job into quick and easy work.

Combination wrenches, like the ToolGuards Ratcheting Wrench Set and TEKTON Combination Wrench Set with Store and Go Keeper we’ve included on our list are great for speeding up work and are ideal for situations when there isn’t much swing clearance, or there are obstructions. We also like the ToolGuard because of its inclusion of both SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) and metric sizes, which doubles the chances of having the correct wrench for any job.

The sets we’ve included on our list feature a wide range of sizes, making them ideal for users that need smaller wrenches for automotive repairs, as well as larger wrenches for jobs around the home. The wrench sets on our list all offer something a little different, whether it’s the ability to be used in conjunction any drive ratchet, extension, or torque wrench, or a storage bag that makes it easy to move the wrenches from one project to another.

For more on our three favorite wrench sets for home and auto use, check out our picks below.

1. TEKTON Crowfoot Wrench Set

The wrenches in the TEKTON Crowfoot Wrench Set are designed to reach fasteners in tight spaces. The TEKTON Crowfoot Wrench Set can be used with any 3/8 in. drive ratchet, extension, or torque wrench, making it a great addition to any tool kit. The 10-piece set, which comes in sizes ranging from 3/8 inch to 1 inch, is easily organized on a metal storage rail.

Pros: The wrenches are made from forged steel and are chrome-plated, making them durable and resistant to corrosion.

Cons: Some customers complained that the small set didn’t include commonly used sizes like a 12mm and 15/16 inch. A handle must be purchased separately.

3. TEKTON Combination Wrench Set

With a 15-degree angle that helps protect your fingers, the TEKTON Combination Wrench Set with Store and Go Keeper also includes wrenches with box end openings that are designed to grip the flat ends of fastener heads.

Pros: Like the ToolGuard, the TEKTON Combination Wrench Set uses premium vanadium steel for a durable mirrored finish. The wrenches have an open end that is angled 15 degrees, allowing for faster turning in tight spaces. The 15-piece set comes with a store-and-go keeper and unlike the first Tekton set, this set includes full-sized wrenches ranging in size from ¼ – 1 inch.

Cons: Some customers noted that the store-and-go keeper doesn’t always keep a snug fit on the wrenches.
