    It was an old infomercial- it was selling these "revolutionary" wrenches and sockets which gripped the side of the nut/bolt rather than the edge, which then you wouldnt bust your nuckles from stripped bolts. This also allowed one socket to work on both metric and SAE....

    anyone remember what that was called?

    My buddy almost never reaches for his Snapon stuff, he uses his metwrench set at the shop.
