Snap-On Tools Description

Snap-On Tools is a tool manufacturer and distributor. The company services professional shops by selling the tool line directly to these. They are geared toward the professional and distribute their tools off a truck that makes stops at service center's once or twice a week.

Snap-On invented the removable socket, hence the name Snap-On. Before this invention the socket was a one-piece speed wrench, so one was needed for every size (5/16", 7/16", 1/2" etc.). So now users had a speed wrench with removable sockets that snapped on and off. This saved considerable space and weight in the tool box.

"Johnson and Seideman created a set of 10 sockets that would snap on to five different handles. The idea that Five Do the Work of Fifty, revolutionised the industry and in 1920, the Snap-on Wrench Company was born."

The following cars were part of a promotion effort, that gave out Hot Wheels vehicles off their trucks to customers.
