It’s time you worked smarter and faster, and Matco’s ADV Sockets allow you to do just that.

Offered in both metric and SAE, our best-in-class ADV Impact Socket Sets simplify the job and are made to last, because we know that you need tools that work just as hard as you.

What makes Matco’s ADV Sockets and Socket Sets better than others on the market? 

More breadth, features, and excellent everyday durability.

ADV Sockets Opti-Torque System

1.) Its Opti-torque system allows torque to be applied to fastener sides, so you can transmit more torque while

2.) The parallel nose-down design lets you reach into tight areas, which is a major advantage over tampered nose impact sockets. Reducing the risk of rounding corners.

3.) A 150-degree chamfer on the socket end increases the contact area between the socket and the fastener applying 55% more torque. This helps to improve grab and reduce the chance of rounding fastener corners.

4.) All of Matco’s ADV Sockets have high visibility markings so you can identify them quickly even in poorly lit areas.

5.) Save time on all jobs with ADV’s drive end countersink – it makes for easier and faster loading on pneumatic tools

6.) All Matco’s ADV sockets are cold-formed from high-performance alloy steel using a precision manufacturing process. Our advanced heat-treating process provides the ultimate in strength, durability, and consistent performance every time
