A socket is used as a handling tool after matching with a ratchet wrench. Its main function is to handle all kinds of screws and nuts and other fastening parts, but sockets are often lost after falling down on the ground or rolling over before and after their use. This research employs TRIZ to improve the socket design. First, this research collects and analyzes literature related to socket design. Second, it then utilizes a contradiction matrix, 39 engineering parameters, and 40 invention principles in TRIZ to find the places that need to be improved and subsequently improves them. Lastly, this research changes the socket structure to reduce losses caused by falling down and rolling over.
