What Milwaukee Has in Store for Linemen

Milwaukee Shockwave Lineman’s 2-in-1 Sockets

The Milwaukee Shockwave Lineman’s 2-in-1 Sockets cover 9/16″ and 3/4″ with one accessory. The way it works is simple. The smaller size nests inside the larger socket, held in place by a spring. When you work with the larger size, the fastener pushes the smaller socket out of the way.

You have two options—either 6-point or 12-point sockets. Both fit hex and square heads.  A 7/16″ to 1/2″ adapter comes with them for easy use with the M18 Fuel 7/16″ Utility Impact Wrench.

Both versions feature an internal anti-rust stainless steel spring and retaining ring. Milwaukee claims that these sockets will provide some seriously long spring life, dual-nut fastening versatility, and hands-free size changes.
