The idea for the Socket Roll came about by the inventor, a mechanic, during the summer of 2012 in Los Angeles, California. During that summer he spent many hours restoring a Ford Mustang Foxbody and swapping in a V8 to the 4 cylinder hatchback body. This, no doubt, required many hours around the car and especially at the junk yard looking for replacement parts that were unavailable at the dealer or online.
While searching for and acquiring parts at the junk yard he used his sockets quite a bit (obviously) and they had gone through many organizational type systems; from the old school rails, to the magnetic trays and even the classic Crown Royal bag full of sockets. The problem that he had was that the sockets would fall off the rails, the magnetic trays would pick up other items and only hold so many sockets and the Crown Royal (or really any other) bag was an unorganized mess that made finding the right socket for the job a lengthy task at times. Through this endless cycle of needing and searching for sockets he came up with the perfect idea for a portable and organized socket and ratchet tool holder. Hence…Socket Roll was born!
The entire purpose behind Socket Roll is to eliminate the issue that enthusiasts deal with on a daily basis when working on their vehicles, boats, RV’s, recreational toys and others; finding the right socket in a short period of time and having the ability to transport them to the area where they are needed easily and with the ability to keep them organized.
Socket Roll is growing every quarter with new retailers, professional sponsorships and most importantly…happy customers. We are innovating new versions and taking heed from customer feedback to ensure we make products that fill a void in the current consumer/professional market. We will continue taking care of our Military members with discounts and special offers and we are committed to delivering a high quality product(s) with each and every order that leaves our warehouse. We are working closely with larger companies to offer alternate Socket Roll options for specific markets, integrate socket sets into our rolls and ultimately to bring Socket Roll to the forefront of the portable socket storage industry.
In addition to our business goals we are committed to giving back. Not only do we give financially to charity, but we also give of our time to help others by being active at our church, feeding the homeless in our community and helping to pick up and dust off those who have fallen.
