    Been using these at work. Never realized how much I love the comfort handle swivel head 3/8. I’ve found two on fleabay. I’ll be buying my own soon.

No gears just push button on to and turn socket opposite the direction you want it to go, changes direction. Also has a hole in the end for a cheater bar.
    Second one Action ratchet unusual direction change there too. Just move tab bottom on head.

    Comfort handle 3/8 flex head is my go to. I have them in regular and long. I don't turn wrenches for a living, so I only have the harbor freight versions, but they're actually really nice. Super cheap, fine tooth, pretty smooth, and a lifetime warranty. I have had 3 of their ratchets for a few years now with zero problems. My buddy used a long handle 3/8 flex of theirs daily at work for about a year before the head got too floppy and the adjustment bolt stripped. They have him a new one no questions asked.

    I would certainly prefer snap on or another premium brand, but the way I figure it, if I want to try a few different ratchets, I can buy them at HF and figure out which ones I really like. If I ever get a good opportunity to pick up the snap on version I might do it then.
