Channellock 4-in-1 Ratcheting Wrench Set (841S)

Channellock recently introduced their new 4 ‘N 1 Wrench Set (Model 841S). The 4-in-1 Ratcheting Wrench Set does the work of 8 wrenches or socket. The folks at Channellock sent us this set to test and report out thoughts to all of you.


  • SAE
  • Includes ratchet sizes: 5/16″ x 3/8″, 7/16″ x 1/2″, 9/16″ x 5/8″, 11/16″ x 3/4″
  • 12 point socket
  • Heat-treated for greater durability on the job
  • Electronic coating for ultimate rust prevention
  • 4 sizes in each wrench saves time, money and space
  • Hollow sockets excel over deep socket designs

Our Thoughts

The 4-in-1 Ratcheting Wrench Set from Channellock makes a really great wrench set when storage space is a premium. For me that means these wrenches are great for my tool box in the truck or with a crews mobile tool boxes. Considering that this set of two wrenches can do the work of 8 combination wrenches or sockets there is a great possibility to save room in your tool box.

Right out of the package I was quite impressed with the feel and quality of these wrenches. The wrenches have very smooth edges with a nice painted finish. Each wrench is riveted together in 4 places to keep things nice and tight.

You can switch directions on the ratchet with your finger while holding the wrench in just one hand. The ratchet works effortlessly and makes quick work of tightening  nuts and bolts. Because of the open design these wrenches can easily work in deep positions where sockets are limited. The 12 point sockets quickly engage the nut or bolt head.

Overall these are a great set of ratcheting wrenches. The quality is very good and they work effortlessly. Priced at $35 we think it’s a good value when you consider how much a good set of traditional wrenches or sockets cost.
