Klein 2-in-1 Slotted Sockets Bring More Productivity for Linemen
Switching between sockets can be a pain when you’re on the jobsite, especially for those who work with a variety of bolt and fastener sizes throughout the day. Reversible sockets can ease the pain to a degree, but you’re still stuck turning them around when you need to work with different-sized fasteners. Klein hopes to ease this pain point even more with the 2-in-1 Socket Set, which boasts the ability to switch between sizes hands-free. We’re looking at what else these sockets have to offer.

The Klein 66090 socket set includes twelve common socket sizes combined into six sockets. The sockets are engineered for use with 1/2-inch impact wrenches, featuring a deep-socket 1/2-inch drive and cross-hole connection points.
Instead of a reversible design, each socket in this set features a coaxial spring-loaded mechanism that automatically contours around two different bolt or fastener sizes.
Inside the sockets, you’ll find a 12-point, high-torque design for easy positioning, even on square fasteners. Larger bolts push the spring-loaded inner sleeve out of the way, and smaller bolts keep it in place for hands-free adjustment between socket sizes.
The 1 1/8 x 15/16-inch and 3/4 x 9/16-inch sockets also feature alignment slots that help you tighten and loosen most pole hardware, including linemen’s eye bolts.
Additionally, these sockets have a color-coded design for quick size identification. A carrying case also holds them all together in a compact, secure package.
