Professional Power and Dependability


Carlyle Tools professional sockets are guaranteed to deliver on the promise we have made over the course of NAPA’s 90 years to deliver the highest caliber product day in and day out. Featuring over 800 individual products in SAE and Metric sizes, 6-point, 8-point, and 12-point designs, standard/mid/deep lengths, there is no application too large or too small that cannot be taken on with the only line of sockets strong enough to bear the Carlyle Tools name. Each socket is constructed of durable chrome vanadium (CR-V) alloy steel, and is engineered with unique, innovative features specifically designed to add more durability to the life of the product. Each Carlyle Tools Socket meets or exceeds all ANSI/ASME standards, assuring compliancy with the most recent and most stringent standards the industry has to offer. “When the job calls for a professional, the professional calls Carlyle Tools”.

Carlyle Tools Sockets feature a full polished mirror chrome finish on each socket resists corrosion while maintaining the look and feel of a brand new product. Carlyle Tool’s extra finishing step provides for easy cleanup and a look that will last a lifetime. Radial corners on 6-point sockets move the contact points to the flats of the fastener and not the corners. This not only reduces the chance of rounding or stripping the fastener, but provides additional torque on a fastener with rounded corners. Deep rolled stamped markings provide easy identification. Lateral rings on SAE sockets and vertical knurling on Metric sizes make the right tool easy to identify.
