Unistrut Channel Sockets

If you have ever tried to tried to tighten a 1/2″ bolt inside a section of P1000T slotted channel, you know that hand wrenches are a slow, inefficient way to go.  Some professional installers have tried modifying sockets to speed things up (a traditional 3/4″  socket head doesn’t fit inside the channel) with limited success. We do a decent number of our own installations and used to struggle with the same issue.  Our crews face the same job pressures as yours–we are constantly searching for ways to do things faster to stay competitive in our market.  Sometimes greater efficiency is about having the right tools for the job.  That’s why all of our installation crews show up to each job with a new tool called the Channel Socket or Strut Socket.

Specifically designed for “T” series slotted channels (P1000T, P5500T, P1001T, P5000T, etc), the Channel Socket’s size and shape gives you access to bolts inside the channel and  eliminates the need for custom fabricated sockets or fighting with hand wrenches in tight spaces.  Strut sockets are available in two sizes and work with 1-5/8″, 2-7/16″, and 3-1/4″ deep channels:

3/4″ (19mm) Strut Channel Socket 1/2″ Drive for 1-5/8″ Series Strut Channel
3/4″ (19mm) Strut Channel Socket 1/2″ Drive for 2-7/16″ or 3-1/4″ Deep Channel

You can use the links above to order your channel socket online, or give us a call and one of our associates will gladly place your order over the phone.  If you have questions about how the Channel Socket can make your team more efficient–and productive–contact Unistrut Service Company for further assistance.
