KENOSHA, WI - For a limited time, Snap-on is offering its 2011 ratchet and socket promotion.

"Techs use ratchets and sockets all day long so they need the best to get the job done," said Alicia Smales, vice president of marketing for Snap-on tools. "Snap-on ratchets and sockets are superior when it comes to performance, power and durability. With this special Snap-on promotion, there is no reason not to 'torque it up' and make sure you have the best sockets and ratchets in your tool box."
