Meet Our Ratchets: Your Ultimate Project Companion

Our Famous ¼” Drive Mini Ratchets are high-quality, one of a kind hand tools that are ideal for both professional and personal use. The unique design gives the user the ability to switch out various sizes of Chapman screwdriver bits depending on the task at hand. Another great feature is their compact size for easy storage and transportation. Whether you're a mechanic or simply need a reliable tool for your home workshop, this is sure to meet your needs without breaking the bank. Chapman offers a range of ratchets in five different styles. Understanding the different styles of ratchets available can help you choose the right one for your needs. Let’s take a closer look at each of these mini marvels! 


First up, we have our Famous Stainless Steel ¼” Drive Mini Ratchet. This is the version found the most frequently in our tool sets. The classic silver color gives a timeless look that will never go out of style and will look great in your tool collection.

Second, we have our Two Tone Ratchets. The colorful options of blue, black, red or orange will make your ratchet stand out amongst the sea of other tools in your toolbox. Not only do the colors add a fun and unique twist to your tools, they also serve a practical purpose. These ratchets come with the “Out” half in one of the above vibrant colors while the “In” half is in the classic silver color. This helps determine which direction the user is driving their ratchet. So not only do they look great, but they also perform exceptionally well!

Next, we have our Flame Treated Ratchet. This version of our mini ratchet harkens back to how our ratchets were made back in the 1930’s and 1940’s! The classic silver ratchet is flame treated by heating up the metal until it changes color, creating their striking and unique color patterns. The Flame treating process is purely cosmetic and does not affect the integrity of the ratchet in the slightest. It makes for a noteworthy addition to any of our Chapman kits or as a standalone gift for the tool enthusiasts in your life.

Next in line after our Flame Ratchet, we have the Dipped Ratchet. It’s the same tool now with a comfy twist! Enhanced with a grippy coating, this ratchet offers superior comfort and grip, particularly in damp or greasy environments. The vivid colors of the Yellow and Blue dipped coatings make them easy to spot on a cluttered workbench; while the Black coating’s speckled texture adds even more grip. So if you're looking for a high-quality ratchet that combines comfort, durability, and style, look no further!

Last but not least, there’s our Palm Ratchet, the PR-13, the newest addition to our ratchet family who has a new way to ratchet! Compared to the CM-13 ratchet, this round mini ratchet moves quickly and is more comfortable to use. Its’ small size also means that it won't take up much space in your tool bag or kit, making it a convenient accessory to have with you at all times.

So there you have it. Our ratchets are not only compact and easy to use, but they also come in different styles to fit your tooling needs. Whether for personal or professional use, bicycle repair or DIY, these ratchets are a must in your arsenal. Which one is your favorite? Let us know!
