Steelman PRO Sharkplug™ sockets are spark plug sockets that have bite! Sharkplug™ sockets are traditional spark plug sockets, combined with reverse cut, serrated teeth, that grind through broken spark plug boots. Each socket is made of Chrome Vanadium and has a partial black oxide finish for added durability. Simply attach the Sharkplug™ socket to a powered ratchet, flip the ratchet to reverse, and grind the boot away. Once the boot is ground away, the same socket can be used to remove the spark plug itself.

Why: 

Engines with recessed spark plugs have a tendency to heat up and corrode spark plug boots over time. When the vehicle is serviced and the spark plug wires are removed, the spark plug wire boot is sometimes corroded, or crystalized and fused to the spark plug. Traditionally, this required the tech to use a pick and compressed air to gradually chip away at the broken boot until the spark plug hex could be accessed. This process was time consuming and labor intensive. The Sharkplug™ socket makes this process quick and easy!
