5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality tools. Poor holder., 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bahco 9770 BE-9770 1.5 - 10mm Hex Key Set (DIY & Tools)
The Allen keys themselves are of a very good quality. The short side is plain. the long side ball ended. The short side is particularly short. The long side is particularly long. This arrangement gives allowance for good accessibility and less likelihood of the key slipping out or distorting the fastener hexagon, plus good leverage.

The holder, however, is badly designed. The keys are a very tight fit in the holder, which when used regularly, especially in cold workshop conditions, is a real pain. Literally.

I have a couple of bahco socket sets which suffer the same criticism. Very good tools held in their holder way too tightly.

The five star rating is for the tools, not the holder.

Hi was just reading your review and thought you would like to know that the holder is designed to lock the allan keys in place firmly when not in use save loosing them . to get them out just raise the small end of the key away from the back of the holder slightly until it goes loose then pull them out with ease . To put back slide back in with the small end of the key slightly raised from the back of the holder then when in place press the small end flat against the back of the holder to lock the key back into its holder save any loss , as you can expect from Bahco even the holder is very well designed hope this helps you enjoy your great little quality set even more on cold days .
