Auto-Lock or Ratchet Lock: Which is Best?

 

Coke vs. Pepsi.

Dunkin Donuts vs. Starbucks

Marvel vs. DC.

These are age-old rivalries where your loyalties tend to fall on one side or the other. In the world of utility knives, it is Ratchet-Lock vs. Auto-Lock. Both offer unique user benefits, so how do you decide which is best for you?

 

Auto-Lock

An Auto-Lock knife offers fast, one-handed blade activation between multiple standard cutting depths. The blade locks into pre-set detents for a secure hold during cuts. It is built to handle high amounts of pulling force for safe and accurate cuts. The Auto-Lock also delivers tactile and audible clicks at each depth stop. Simply slide out to activate the blade and pull it back to retract.

Ratchet-Lock

A Ratchet-Lock knife delivers unlimited blade positioning for custom cutting depths. You set the blade exactly where you want your cut. The brass locking pin secures the blade in place for tough cutting jobs like high resistance or thick materials. The Ratchet-Lock easily handles high amounts of pulling force for safe and accurate cuts. Simply turn the wheel counter-clockwise to unlock and slide the blade out, then turn clockwise to lock it into place.
