I purchased this breaking bar because my old breaking bars just could not stand up to the pressure needed. This breaking bar was able to stand up to the pressure, loosening bolts I thought may never come loose.
every tool box should have a "breaker bar" to break loose the rusted bolts before you use your ratchet. that's why we call them breaker bars. this flex handle fits just right in my hand. a must have tool in every tool box.

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).

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.
this came in handy just as soon as i needed to replace the transition cooling elbow in the dredded gm 3800 series 2 motor. great leverage, quality tool that is perfect to use on idiler pulleys.

Ok! So it's made in China but so what as long as they honor the lifetime warranty! Now to the breaker bar very good quality and I'm very happy with my purchase. Hope this helps....;-)
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 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 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.
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.

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.
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.
