Why use a socket wrench and socket bit rather than a hex key?

Although they can be used for similar applications, using a socket and wrench has many advantages. The use of interchangeable sockets ensures that only one wrench is required to work with various sized fasteners, saving both time and money. The 6-point head also ensures a secure and reliable connection to the fastener with each point producing a strong grip with increased torque. The combination of a wrench and socket bit provides a much more versatile hand tool that can be used in a wide range of applications.
