A Good Idea But Impractical
john4521 - 3 years ago
I bought a set of these to work on my bike, but before long I went back to using my standard bunch of allen keys. Whilst a good idea in so much as the keys are kept all together, for me the advantages end there. some times you have to be able to separate one key from the rest of the bunch, for instance when checking adjustments you can leave a single key sticking in the bolt head, or dare I say in your mouth! I just find this set too heavy and bulky to turn especially in tight spaces and you have to keep putting them down. In the 90 deg position I find that with the big handle it is difficult to gauge the tightness you are putting in a bolt, it is too easy to over tighten, and with the handle in the straight position it feels awkward as the key is then offset from the centre of the handle whilst turning it. Buy a good quality set of hex keys on a ring or in a pouch.
