Tip & How-To about Craftsman 6mm Socket, 6 pt
Without a Magnetic Socket some bolts will not stay in the Socket to reinstall. I have found a handy trick to keep small screws for Electrical parts and large bolts for Starters on the Socket.
Under the lid of my Toolcases I put a strip of Duct Tape. When I come across a stubborn screw or bolt, I just peel off the Duct tape and tape the screw lightly to the Socket. Once I get the screw started I twist the extension or Nutdriver and recover the tape. Then I tighten the screw or bolt the rest of the way.
Having the Duct Tape already in my toolcase saves me from crawling out from a vehicle and having to walk away from my Project to get some tape.
It saves time and effort and makes some near impossible jobs possible.
