"make sure you use the big ratchet, not the little one" "the little ones will snap" "dont use the 3/8" one, use the big one like this one its a 1/2" or 1/4" whatever it is"

Definitely vesrah rjl's. You'll love them. Be careful the first couple of times you use them, they definitely bite harder than OEMs. And... They last forever.
