Snap-on Spark Plug Socket Sets Help Techs Beat Winter Freeze

Snap-on Spark Plug Socket Sets Help Techs Beat Winter Freeze

These sets allow technicians greater accessibility options with a locking extension providing extra security.

Techs know that during winter, vehicle battery voltage drops with the temperature which in turn drops the voltage output of the ignition coils. So, by replacing spark plugs now, less voltage is required to fire the gap between electrodes and will help with the cold weather starting. Even newer vehicle models need spark plug replacements after 60,000-100,000 miles, something to be checked after the average 500+ miles many families travel over the holidays. These spark plug socket sets from Snap-on ensure technicians have the tools necessary for required engine service to keep customers safely on the road during the winter months and beyond.

Sockets deliver 15–25% more turning power with the Flank Drive wrenching system and are cold-formed and manufactured from the highest quality proprietary steel. The knurled surface on each socket makes finger-tightening and removal easy, and spark plugs are securely retained by each socket’s rubber inserts.
