New Husky Mechanics Tool Sets in EVA Foam Trays

I recently posted about a Gearwrench mechanics tool set that comes packaged in a precut foam tray (it’s also on sale right now at Home Depot), and have since discovered two new Husky tool sets.

I’ve actually known about the new Husky sets for a couple of weeks, and have been waiting for them to go on sale, and they have!

I reviewed a Husky 3pc ratchet set a few months ago, and it arrived in a neat foam tray. It looks like the new sets feature the same type of foam tray, with a foam base that hugs your tools and a smooth top surface for easy cleaning (and presumably aesthetics – it looks great!).

First up, here’s the new Husky 70pc mechanics tool set, featuring 3/8″ and 1/4″ tools, sockets, and accessories.

This is more of a beginner’s tool set, as it comes with hex keys, and it has a sub-$50 price tag.

You get all-6pt sockets, with mostly shallow sockets and a couple of deep sockets as well.

Here’s a full list of what you get – 2 ratchets, 42 sockets (22 1/4″, 20 3/8″), 14 hex keys, a single extension, a 1/4″ bit driver, and 10 screwdriver bits.

The set includes SAE socket sizes 5/32″ through 13/16″ and metric socket sizes 4mm through 19mm (with no skips). If you’d like specifics, refer to this PDF for a rundown of the sizes.

Husky 144 Position Ratchet and Drive Accessory Tool Set

If you’re all set on sockets, Husky also has a 22pc 144 position ratchet and drive accessory set, priced at $89.

The 144 position ratchets have an ultra-narrow minimum swing arc of just 2.5°. These appear to be the same ratchets I previously reviewed.

In addition to the 1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ ratchets, you also get 2 bit adapter sockets, 10 different extension bars, 4 size adapters, and 3 universal joints.

Here’s the PDF with specifics.

According to the spec sheet, and from the product imagery, it appears that all of the 10 extensions are wobble extensions. I find this interesting because most starter sets give you straight extensions. Are all of these wobble-style extensions (which do come in handy!) to ensure minimal overlap if you’re upgrading from or adding to an all-in-one type of starter set?

You also get a flex extension, which seems like it could be handy. I don’t think I have one yet.

Here’s the thing… the 3pc ratchet set is typically $70 at Home Depot, which is a decent price for a set of 1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ fine-tooth or fine-position ratchets. For $19 more, you get 2 bit adapters, 10 extensions, 4 size adapters, and the 3 universal joints.

This seems like a good deal.

Reminder: Husky has a lifetime no-questions-asked and no-receipt-needed warranty on hand tools.


Quite a few readers expressed interest in mechanics tool sets that are bundled with foam trays instead of the traditional (and practically useless) blow-molded cases.

What do you think about these new Husky options?

What would you like to see in a different set or configuration?
