As such, they are ideal for when fasteners need to be adjusted or equipment needs to be dismantled. From furniture assembly to bicycle maintenance, this hex key set is ideal.

What is the advantage of a ball end hex key?

The ball end on a hexagon key allows it to be inserted smoothly into a socket head. This ability to slide in allows for easier blind insertion, allowing you to more effectively feel the keys way into the socket more easily. As such, for difficult to access sockets, ball end hex keys are preferable.
