Socket heads predominantly feature a 12 point vs 6 point socket design. BoenTools implements both metric and imperial systems to avoid compatibility issues, with metric measurements in millimetres (mm) and imperial units in inches. For expeditious tightening, some sockets have a beveled design at the head.

Selection Based on Driving Device
BoenTools caters to both manual and pneumatic socket requirements.
Our manual sockets, forged from high-resilience chromium-vanadium steel (Cr-V), are known for their shiny silver surface. When used with manual ratchet wrenches or L-shaped socket wrenches, they offer an efficient and secure way of removing bolts.
Our black-coloured pneumatic sockets originate from robust chromium-molybdenum steel (Cr-Mo). Used with pneumatic and hydraulic wrenches, they come equipped with superior impact absorption abilities, making them perfect for automotive, electrical, and mineral maintenance tasks.
Selection Based on Size

Whether you need to work in confined spaces or handle extended screws, BoenTools has your back. For applications not constrained by a narrow environment, we recommend our long sockets for superior nut engagement.

Crucial Tips when Selecting and Using BoenTools' Sockets


  • Pick suitable socket sizes, considering the working space and the bolt or nut's size.
  • Utilise the long-lasting 6-point sockets wherever possible. Refrain from using damaged or broken sockets.
  • Opt for short sockets in confined spaces, where our long sockets offer more versatility.
  • Ensure to use insulated, voltage-resistant sockets for electrical tasks.
  • Although pneumatic sockets can temporarily replace typical sockets, the opposite could be hazardous.


With BoenTools, you're investing in a range of socket sets explicitly designed to withstand the extreme impact forces of pneumatic impact wrenches. We've engineered our sockets to resist heat and cracking under high pressure, ensuring your safety while getting the job done.
In essence, BoenTools' socket wrenches and sets are versatile and reliable for use in factories, auto repairs, electric power sectors, and mines. Select your suitable socket set, learn the correct usage techniques, and adhere to safety practices!
