Part: Metric Hex Key Wrench Sets in Regular & Ball End styles by KT Pro Tools
Why You Need This: Socket head bolts, aka "Allen" head bolts (Allen is a brand name), have come into common use over the last four decades of manufacturing. They are a bolt / screw head style that is easier to remove and install, resistant to stripping out, and have become a popular choice of bolts used on modern motorcycles. On vintage Honda motorcycles, swapping the JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) Philips head screws found on the engine cases for socket head bolts will make routine bike maintenance a breeze. In the past many hex keys wrenches aka "Allen" wrenches were often low quality, too small / too short to apply proper torque on, poorly marked size wise (sometimes not marked at all) and often supplied in a disorganized manner making them easy to mix up with SAE sized hex keys. Times have changed and hex key wrenches are now better quality, better organized and available in longer lengths and even ball end variants (on the long side of the wrench) to access socket head bolts at odd angles.
We offer a selection of regular and ball end hex keys wrenches in a variety of length options for your tool box. We are confident you will find the set (or few) that most suites your needs from the options below:
