I don't understand what you're trying to say. The tools are obviously different, the packaging is obviously different. Seems clear to me that at minimum, they're different models from the same manufacturer; but more likely totally different tools from completely different manufacturers.

This was shared by another member, but since it's relevant, I'll post it here as well as it contains several items not previously covered.

I'm looking for a specific truck tool equivalent, made in USA...

a cooling system pressure tester, hand pump type, with heavy duty truck cap adapters but also automotive adapters. If anyone can recommend me anything it would be appreciated. Thanks!

By the way, glad to see this thread coming back around.
The Snap on version is a lot more stout

yeah it is. BTW I bought these in a Kastar box from Sears with that wacky 7/32" pass through socket loophole for like $42. They're nice enough and probably equivalent to the old Blue Point sets.

http://redlinedetection.com/collections/smartfit Don't know how heavy duty the trucks are that you will be diagnosing but I haven't found a car I haven't been able to use this on and it's made of very high quality components when I bought mine it was made in the USA.
