This high-quality Asahi LIGHTOOL 72-het weighs only 178 grams ( 6.3 oz), is up to 40% lighter than most 3/8" ratchets, and is as strong. It is a must-have for any rider who wants to minimize tool weight.

Many riders opt for a 1/4-inch drive. However, that limits you to sockets up to about 13mm due to the maximum torque you can apply to 1/4-inch ratchets. However, if you want to carry a few larger sockets, such as 17mm or 19 mm, you need 3/8" drive tools such as this Asahi LIGHTOOL ratchet.

It is not that much heavier than, for example, a Wera Zyklops 1/4" drive, which weighs 107 grams (3.8 oz). Add a 3/8" to 1/4" socket adapter, and you still save weight using 1/4 sockets and bits while at the same time having the option to use larger sized 3/8" tooling.

There's also a 3/8" to 1/2" socket adapter for larger-sized tooling in the workshop.

NOTE: Sockets are locked on and can't fall off until you press the release button on top of the ratchet head.

Love this company

My package was delivered to the wrong address. After the shipping company wouldn’t even investigate Asahi sent me a new product in time for Christmas. He took the loss but did what was right for the customer. Sure wish they were based in the U.S.

Amazing tool

After using the ratchet for multiple weeks I am still impressed with its smooth action and build quality.

Some of my colleagues don't enjoy how skinny the handle is but I love it.

Solid tool and if it ever breaks I will be buying another.

Asahi LIGHTOOL 3/8" ratchet 72 Teeth.

I did not use it till now. But when holding it you feel the quality. If it works as it feels it is a very nice tool.
