Great tool! - But now made in CHINA!
I used this item for the first time tonight while replacing my brake rotors. It worked great! It allowed me to break loose all of my lug nuts with ease. It also made it much easier to break free the bolts that hold the caliper on. My only disappointment was that this tool is now made in CHINA! I have always been a loyal Craftsman fan because the tools were made in the USA. I am willing to pay more to get a quality tool made in the US. It seems that Craftsman is moving more of their lines to be made in China. I hope Sears / Craftsman reconsider this.

Broke in the first minute of use.
Bought this tool tonight at Sears because my impact wrench won't get the lug nuts off the wheels on my M35A2 cargo truck. I was hoping this bar would turn the lugs, but it broke as soon as I put a little weight on the cheater bar (a 6' pipe). Looks like I'll have to move up to the 3/4" drive... This tool would probably work well for minor tasks but it isn't as tough as I was hoping it would be.

Strong flex head

This breaker is good for your everyday tight bolts working around normal use and older cars. It might not be long enough for rusty truck bolts, but slip a cheater bar and it'll do. The head is shimmed tight and the pin is bolted in, not just pressed in (which eventually falls out).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not the same as the 18" version

The 18" was made in USA. This one is made in China. And there's no ball/groves to lock the position of the rotating head.

Sturdy and great when necessary

Great for breaking loose frozen nuts and bolts. Go ahead and step right on it or put the pipe on it for extra leverage. Never fails me.

Great tool!

The 1/2 in. dr. 15 in. Flex Handle is a high quality breaker bar. The 15" handle allows you to put a lot of force onto a stuck nut or bolt. This tool has come in very handy with stuck lug nuts on wheels. The craftsman quality shows through in this one for sure.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

WONDER BAR

I used this bar to turn a frozen nuts of my car's two caliper mounts. It took little effort to get them done. I used hammer to strike the handle to loosen the nuts first and then turn them out with ease.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Tool

I just started a career as a auto mechanic. I need good sturdy reliable tools that will last me many years. I always choose Craftsman tools. This 1/2" flex handle tool is perfect. It's the perfect size and weight to perform the many jobs that I bought it for.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Value

This tool is great, if you can't bust a nut loose with a ratchet or a wrench this guy comes in handy. If you have a rusted bolt or stubborn lug nuts this will bust em loose.

US made and quality forged and engineered

Its made in USA with quality, its well thought out, easy to handle, and will handle way more than its designed to, as we have had them in very high torque situtions and they delivered. if it says made in USA on the handle, buy it, it will be a good one.

The tools that come with cars to change tires are garbage. I buy these and the correct sockets to ensure I am prepaed for emergencies. This is a must buy for anyone that attempts to change their own tires.

This breaker bar will do about anything you need it to, gives the extra leverage to break loose the most stubborn fasteners.  Good length for under the hood work.

Craftsman 1/2" drive with 15 inch Flex Handle

This is one strong and dependable tool that has great flexibility. It's adjustable 1/2" socket holder is always ready for action with it's side bite ball bearing that allows for quick socket change outs. The 15 inch handle allows you to put as much torque as needed to get the job done. I love the ergonomic handle, its designed to stay in your hand with out slippage and/or hand fatigue. This is a Craftsman's main stay for any job that requires torque and flexibility. Be ready for that next big job have one in your tool bag.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 1/2 in. dr. 15 in. Flex Handle is well built

This tool has been used at work 75 to 100 times a day for the last 2 weeks and it still feels brand new. The sockets stay on unlike the cheap bar the shop supplied before. The only change i would make is to add a little more grip to the handle for oily enviroments.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
