Like almost any l wrench set you’ll find a simple to use tool, the Bondhus 12522 Gorilla Grips is different though with it being 20 percent stronger then the standard l wrenches. If L wrenches are what you are looking for we have the Best Allen Keys all lined up for you including the Bondhus 20399 L Wrench BriteGuard GoldGuard. With an amazon page giving both questions and answers. And if you are also looking for other tools, check our extensive list of the best tools in the market.

Why We Like It – Stanley STHT71839 Folding Hex Key Set

The Stanley STHT71839 Folding Hex Key Set is the perfect tool where a variety of tool sizes are required. All wrenches are packaged in a durable composite handle but are not color coded like the TEKTON Wrench Metric 26 Piece 25282. Wrenches swing smoothly into individually marked slots with little chance of them coming out on their own.

  • Durable composite construction
  • Rubber side inserts for secure grip
  • Size markings for easy identification
  • No ball end

Comfortable to use thanks to the handel with the folding hex key you need only a moment away, if your in a hard to reach spot you can simply fold out the right size instead of needing to get out of the spot and risk hurting yourself like the TEKTON Wrench Metric 30 Piece 25253 could result in. Though regarding the last point you’ll want to pick up the folding metric hex keys just to be safe if you don’t know which one you’ll be using when you go in.


Without a long handle or ball end designen to this type hex keys you’ll find this isn’t the best product for commercial use, however any one who needs a set of allen wrenches to put your furniture together. While not as big as the Tekton 15-Piece Combination Wrench Set the color coded grips. Their durable composite construction rubber side inserts are smooth and easy to hold as you work but more importantly is marked with their metric sizes or imperial sizes for the other.


When it comes to the Stanley STHT71839 Folding Metric Hex Key Set you’ll be getting a double pack that’s two wrench sets one metric the other imperial standard, on top of that you get free shipping in the united states which is alway a plus for even the most discerning shopper. It’s just added extra value as these are certified SAE hex keys with a lifetime warranty from Stanley Tools. One last aside is that the Stanley STHT71839 Folding Hex Key Set isn’t as versatile as the REXBETI Hex Key Allen Wrench Set, particularly in that it has fewer options.

Stanley STHT71839 Folding Hex Key Set Wrap Up

The Stanley STHT71839 Folding Hex Key Set are best for someone who just needs a set of hex keys/ allen wrenches that’s not because of poor quality mind you it’s due to the fact that they don’t have a long arm ball end and most people won’t need that but just a smooth easy to use tool. While the hand tools are often the less used in favor of the powered version of the same.
