Hi Jon....  :-)

Brand.  Sizes?  Price?  zip = 18444.

Uh-huh....  +1 on that!

<raises hand>  I couldn't write that either, luckily, I don't yet own 
a 25/32" socket!  Plus, if you did, you'd have to shift everyone over 
one space and would need to re-write bunches.  I've just had to 
replace a "20" with "21" a couple times.  The Grip ones may be better 
for this - never seen them in person though.

Plastic rails.  Either big $ for the ernst ones (that are reversible) 
or the HF ones for cheap that do everything (except reverse).  HF & 
Sears uses a ball-bearing to hold the socket, ernst uses the bent 
plastic lever.  I have an ernst for the u-pull-it bag - since I can 
fit 25 sockets on the rail.  That way, I have one rail to pull out of 
the bag and I have all the sockets I've brought.  For the garage, I 
use Sears rails.
