Snap-on has been recognized as having the "Overall Best Hand Tools in the United States" on the basis of Frost & Sullivan's independent research,
2008 United States Automotive Technicians' Choice: Evaluation of Automotive Tools.

Snap-on has been the leader in the hand tools category every year since the annual research began, and each year the percentage of technicians selecting Snap-on as number one has increased.

In the 2008 survey, 69 percent of technicians ranked Snap-on number one in the hand tool category compared to just 10 percent choosing its nearest competitor.

"We are truly honored to receive Frost & Sullivan's Automotive Technician's Choice Award for overall best hand tools in the industry," said Bryan Hantke, product manager for Snap-on. "Snap-on's new ratchet with Dual 80 Technology played a key role in our continued dominance in the hand tools category. It's a unique product and it has become a big hit with service technicians."

The Snap-on Dual 80 Technology has an extremely fine-tooth gear with 80 teeth on a compact head - just 1-13/16" wide and 1/2 inch deep.
