    Male/female double socket ratchet wrench?? I've been looking online, but found nothing that looks close to those. I don't think I've ever seen that before.

    So if you spin the ratcheting end on one side it will spin the other side? Cool. I can think of a couple of uses for that.

    This is different Steve. These have an internal chain drive so that one end drives the other. Watch the video on the link I have above. I can see the initial breakaway torque being a PITA, even with this, but still... A nice helper tool for those places you can see but somehow can't reach. I'm helping a friend with his 3rd gen, running into a lot of that lately...
