My trust in the quality and versatility of Kobalt tools has been shaken in recent months, but they still have some decent quality and interesting tools in their product line. This 23-piece ball hex set seems to be one such hidden gem.
The 23-piece hex key set comes with 9 metric and 13 inch hex keys, which feature ball hex tips on the longer ends, and straight hex tips on the shorter ends. A dual-action T-grip handle attaches to the hex keys to allow for easier gripping and in some cases higher torque delivery.
I imagine that there’s nothing special about the hex keys themselves, but the single T-handle grip looks to greatly increase the versatility of the set. Having only one T-handle helps to lower costs, and because it’s removable you can use the T-handle when possible and the L-wrenches by themselves in tight quarters.
The set also comes with carrying case to help keep the hex wrenches all in one place.
