This past July I purchased a set after seeing the ad on TV. I had to
remove some nuts on the tower where there wasn't any room for a socket
or a box-end wrench, I figured that these would be just the ticket.
However, in order to use the wrench, it has to fit fully onto the not or
bolthead. If it doesn't bottom out in the wrench, you can't turn the
nut, it will just spin. Its a good idea, put make sure that you can
fully access the nut or bolt.
