Jan. 15, 2015

Jan. 15, 2015—Snap-on announced on Wednesday that it has released the 9-Pin Axle Hub Socket (S6804), a new tool tailored specifically for repair work on General Motors trucks.

“We are constantly working to provide service technicians with specialty tools that make a difference when it comes to time management and improved productivity,” Brian Woller, product manager for Snap-on, said in a release. “Our new 9-Pin Axle Hub Socket is a valuable addition to every tech’s tool box; it pays for itself immediately, saving time to work on other jobs.”

The new 9-Pin Axle Hub Socket aims to ease the removal and installation of axle hub bearing retaining nuts on 2011 to current GM trucks with 11½-inch rear axles. This 1/2-inch drive impact socket has been heat treated to a lower hardness to add impact and ensure optimum strength and durability.
