My wife got me this set of Allen wrenches among a few other things as an early Father's Day gift.

The 5mm broke on the first bolt I tried to remove with it, front rotor cover.

Will call the vendor tomorrow to see if they will exchange the set for another, they look good, but the small sizes look/are fragile.

I have a set with T-handles. Had em for ten years now. Twist the hell out of em all the time w/o breakage or the ends showing any signs of stripping.
The T-handle you see to the left on the pictures belongs to a set I have had for 35 years, never had to cut them back.

Please, no offense taken, my response was only to let you know that there was no chance of that happening, that's all. :thumbup:

It looks like you can put a lot of torque on that short end with that long handle.
That's the problem, I'm really not blaming the tool, I forgot about the pivot head and was using it like I would a one peace.

The package does say "Lifetime Warranty", I will call the vendor and the manufacture today to see what they say.

A replacement wrench costs 7.45+SH from the manufacture.
