King Gator ETC-125 , Universal socket 12-32 mm.
Each socket contains 54 spring-biased pins made of high quality hardened steel. When the socket is placed onto a fastener the center pins retract and the outer pins surround the fastener. As the fastener is turned the torque is transmitted through the outer pins to the walls of the socket.
This innovative design enables you to work with different sizes of fasteners, whether metric or imperial. It also ensures to work with different shapes - hexagonal and square fasteners, hooks, and even rusted and damaged nuts and bolts.

The rods transfer the turning force from the fastener to the socket walls. The rods are compressed and are not subject to bending forces.
Depending on the specific design, the answer is probably yes. Gator-Grip grips around the edges and not in the center. If the fastener edge is anything other than perfectly round then Gator-Grip should work.
No. The rods do not retract far enough. The only way to make the rods retract further would be to lengthen the entire socket. The current design offers the greatest functionality for the most applications.
The Gator-Grip socket grips along the outer edges of a fastener. The rods cannot reach into the interior of a screw head.
The power adapter allows the Gator-Grip to be connected to a cordless drill/driver. It's a great application.
The success of Gator-Grip has inspired some companies to violate patents and offer cheap, low quality copies. Only Gator-Grip features:
