English translation:freewheeling ratchet
Explanation:
I found this item (1) in the Hoffmann tool catalog and according to description it functions on the order of a quick disconnect hydraulic connector. An outer ring, similar to an oil filter wrench expands and collapses and forces the steel balls into indentations along the perimeter of the tool insert.
The problem: this type of ratched is not to be found in US tool catalogs (by picture identification). Nearly all ratchet sets have a square drive (1/4, 3/8 or 1/2 inch). Therefore pretty much anything describing the action will be acceptable
