Unior Flat Socket for Suspension Service

Introduction

We’re sure sockets with lead-in chamfers have their place when wrenching on something, but the soft alloy top caps of your suspension fork isn’t one of them. All they do there is reduce the amount of purchase, which causes rocking and can potentially mar and round the soft alloy which is less than ideal. Instead, we recommend using suspension specific sockets such as the Flat Socket for Suspension Service from Unior letting you do the job like a pro and prevent damage to delicate pieces.

Unior has been in the tool game since 1919 and has an impressive reputation among professional mechanics. Its experience is evident in these sockets designed to work with low-profile caps. The socket is constructed from chrome molybdenum that’s drop forged, hardened, and tempered then chrome plated for durability. Choose between 23, 24, 26, 27, 28, 30, and 32mm diameter sockets depending on your fork’s top cap requirements.
