Thats all. Just wondering if you use t-handles or 8, 10, 12 mm sockets.

yes, have 8 10 12 t bars in the toolbox,

Nope, I use a ratchet with an extension bar and sockets. I find T handles have limitations where they can't get to as easy as a ratchet with extension bar

Sometimes i pull out the ratchet and extension if its more convenient but I like my T handles as well cool

Second this.....t-handles for all the quick and easy stuff. Ratchets for harder to reach spots.

Ratchet with extensions. T seems to speed up the project. I enjoy it with a ratchet. more foreplay.

I still have the same set of T's my dad bought when I was a kid. I mostly use my Motion Pro 3/8 drive T and just change the sockets so I only have one T on the bench.

I have 1/4 drive MP and really like it for 8-10mm bolts for side panels, seat bolts and triple clamps and such!

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

i still carry a socket set, but use the t bars where they are more useful,

8, 10, 12, 14 and 17mm T-Handles for me. They are my go to’s for almost everything on the bike. By far my favorite tools in my toolbox.

I made a 4-way that has an 8, 10 and 12 and then the fourth is a male 3/8 drive receiver for whatever else. I use that for everything; it has replaced all my T-handles. It frigging rules.

3/8 T Handle that I can swap the sockets on is perfect, normally have 8/10/12mm. Love that tool

That's also for me the way to go. Can swap the sockets between the ratchet and the t handle.

If I have them at my home shop easy to grab, always the right T first, if at the track, I have an old ASV "Y-Handle" with sockets and if I need something other than those 3 I go into the box for a wrench or ratchet based on the location and need.

If I had a permanent trailer with mounted/easy to find location, I'd always just use the T or Y handle.

Probably the most used tools of any reputable mechanic.

I have had one of these since like 2004. I can almost take apart my whole bike with this with an 8,10,12 on it.

T handles all the way.

I recently had to kill $8 to get free shipping so i wouldn't spend $15, website i was buying parts from was very limited so i found a 1/4" drive MP T-handle. Figured this will be lighter to carry in my trail pouch than a ratchet....It is not laughing

Been wanting one regardless for plastic bolts and what not so not all a loss, but a bit disappointed as i've been trying to get my trail tool kit built back up.

I always us a 5/16” instead of 8mm. Fits snugger and reduces wear over time.

I have the best of both. My wife picked up an extendable, ratcheting T-handle with interchangeable sockets as a stocking stuffer one year. Made by Skil and it’s handy as hell. Came in a little box with several sockets, hex heads, torx bits, and multiple Phillips and flat heads. Only thing is the sockets it came with are SAE, so I have to carry some 1/4” drive metric sockets.

Most of the time I use a ratchet and extension. T-handles when I remember that I have them. Got a 1/4" and 3/8" drive Motion Pro setup in my track box. I think a ratchet is better all around..

T handles for 8 and 10mm also with rare earth magnets glued in to hold bolts. No dropped bolts!
