Idon’t gen­er­ally use power tools on ve­hi­cles, but I quite fan­cied the idea of this cord­less ratchet. Us­ing a 10.8v in­ter­change­able bat­tery (part no. 16254, £22.92) and need­ing a charger (16255, £22.92), the ratchet makes short work of do­ing up fix­ings. It’s rea­son­ably pow­er­ful too, with max torque of 32lb ft (45Nm), so when you tighten a fix­ing you cer­tainly know about it – it tries to wrench it­self out of your hand.

With a 3∕8-inch drive and sup­plied with a ¼-inch adapter, the re­versible ratchet is easy to use, has a sim­ple grip-op­er­ated on/off switch, bat­tery level in­di­ca­tor and built-in light. It’s handy for tight ar­eas where you may strug­gle with a man­ual ratchet, and at 250rpm it makes quick work of fix­ings. VER­DICT: Takes the monotony out of deal­ing with lots of fix­ings.
