Bi Hexagon - 12 Point Impact Sockets

A 'bi-hex' or 'bi-hexagon' socket is also called a 12 point socket. This is because twelve points are formed where the internal walls of the recesses intersect.

The name 'bi-hex' comes from the internal shape of the socket recess being that of two hexagons laid over one another.

Just like 'hex sockets', 'bi-hex' sockets can also be used to tighten or loosen hexagonal shaped fasteners, but they have a couple of advantages:

  • They are able to fit 6 point fastener heads in twice as many positions as a regular 'hex socket'. This means it is easier to locate the socket onto the fastener in tight spaces.
