Differences between ‘Hexagonal’ and ‘Twelve Points’

  1. Timings:

    The hexagonal is traditional shape, yet the twelve points is a lot more popular despite it is invented later than the hexagonal.

  2. Functions:

    More angles means smaller degrees that each angle will be, therefore, lesser rotating degrees will be required when placing the tools into the screws.

  3. Specifications:

    The function and the specification of the twelve points and the hexagonal are exactly alike. The serrated interior can be inserted onto the head of the bolts or nuts tightly, moreover, it is also named ‘Ring’ due to the similar appearance between a ring and the twelve points end wrench.
    The red frame in graph 1 represents the hexagonal and the black frame stands for the twelve points. After overlapping the two of them, the outcome depicts that one more angle can be utilized in each surface of the hexagonal.

What is the Function of the Wrench’s Angle?

The selection of the angle of the required wrenches is based on the working environments or the depth of the screws that are inserted on the machines.

The issue of inconvenience is often occurred when using wrenches due to the working environments, spaces or the position of the machines that need to be repaired. Hence, to increase the accessibility and convenience, wrenches are designed with multiple angles that allow users to accomplish diversity jobs.

90 Teeth

KING TONY provides ratchets with five types of teeth.

The most significant difference between diverse teeth is the rotating degrees.
The degree of circumference is 360 degrees. More the amount of the angle is, less the degree of each angle will be. Graph 2 and graph 3 illustrate that the degree of each angle will be 5 and 15 degrees respectively when the ratchets are 72 teeth and 24 teeth.

Graph 4

Merit:

The direction need to be rotated in order to conform to the angle of the hexagonal screws or sockets while working. The smaller the angle of the tooth is, the lesser that the tools need to be rotated. Take vehicle mechanics as example, when repairing vehicles in a narrow space, the problem of inconvenience of rotating in big angle will occurred due to the cramped working space.


The advantage of low amount of teeth:

As the graph 4 demonstrates, the gear and the left and right components are conflicted to each other, which implies that every tooth can own bigger surface when the number of teeth is lesser, and the structure will be stronger and more solid.

Types of Bits and Bit Sockets

Without Quick Release

Separated, according to the feature, into ‘QR. Type’ and ‘ Non-QR. Type’.

QR. introduction
QR. introduction

Apart from the direction button on the main body that can control the rotating direction between clockwise and counterclockwise, a round button, which is the QR. button, can control the assembly and disassembly of the sockets.


  1. Press the QR. button then the steel ball will submerge in order to reduce the resistance of installing the socket.

  2. The socket cannot be disassembled without the QR. button being pressed, which can prevent the accidents that might be caused by slipping off.

Ball retaining grooves

Applying the socket is to increase the friction between the socket and all kinds of adapters, such as extension bars or ratchets. Ball retaining grooves are designed inside the square hole in order to avoid the circumstance of shaking when the socket is installed.
The ball retaining grooves can be matched with the steel ball on the adapters, and the QR. button is exactly designed for these grooves.

The QR. button ought to be pressed in both situation of Installing and disassembling the socket. The safety design can reduce accidents from happening when working in height.

Simple Classification and Introduction of Tools

Separated, following the power source of driving force, into two types, which are human force and machinery force.
