[Canadian Tire] Stanley Black Chrome Socket Set, 229-pc $139.99

I have been in the market for a decent socket set. Not sure how it compares to recent comparable deals.

Claims to be 70% off but can't take CT seriously with their discount claims.

You took all the fun away from those that like to sale-splain in every Canadian Tire thread.


I bought this set last year and it's been very good for me.

That sale expired and this is a new one. The sale price of this item has fluctuated between $99 - $139, it seems, over the past year.

I have used this set for a couple years now. Its been good. I wouldn't recommend it for a mechanic daily driver. But for your home gamer, is great. Nice smooth ratcheting.

I have a similar stanley set, Is there a way to use these small bit drivers that come with this set with an impact driver? I have tried using them but they don't get locked to the chuck and fall off (i have a dewalt impact driver)? Wondering if i should consider buying a new impact bit set or i can work with these for household work.

Thanks for this.
I've been waiting since Feb 01 for the warranty replacement. It's been on back order and told it was shipping out mid May. Still waiting.
Good thing I've got some other 3/8" ratchets lying around.

Not a fan of this socket wrench's mechanism - I've had issues with it and had to return it.

Rule of thumb for Canadian tire private labels is to never buy it at full price! They will promote the sh*t out of it

there's a little spring and a flat metal piece that rides on the crescent. its easiest to use the crescent piece to hold everything in place in the center position while you drop the drive in from behind. took me a few min to figure out but next time will be really easy. i should probably do the other ratchets too.

i agree. but if you have this set and nothing else, and ask me to take a look at your car/hvac/dishwasher/dryer/whatever and dont have any tools at your house, there's a good chance it can get fixed.

i'll certainly be investing in better tools once i can afford them, but this is a good start kit at ~100$ or so. i dont know if i'd recommend paying over 150$ for this, let alone """retail"""

The warranty replacement finally arrived today. Opened the package, gave it a couple of cranks in my hand and it seized. Thanks to @TrueToy for telling me how to fix it.
If not, I'd be really upset.
