The ratchet set is an "upgraded" version of the spanner set. Although the ratchet set is faster to use when tightening bolts, it cannot be used to tighten nuts that are attached to rods/pipes (e.g. the brake lining nuts).

While some might use the ratchets the same way as a wrench, expecting them to fasten/loosen quicker per turn, the optimal way to use the ratchet is to take advantage of the fact that it toggles between tightening and loosening by quickly scrolling the mouse wheel back and forth, often performing the same action as a hand wrench in a quarter of the time or less.

The ratchet set can be opened by pressing F while looking at it. Sockets can be swapped by first pressing 2 to enter tool mode, and then left clicking the desired socket inside the opened ratchet set. The bolting direction can be changed by pressing F while in tool mode.
