Had easy exchange at both Lowe's and Ace.  I don't like the newer Craftsman stuff, just getting replacements broken items. 

I hope they still keep the Kobalt line, it's much nicer.

agreed. My favorite ratchet is the Kobalt flex head.

Success! Lowe's swapped it out for a new one.

both of my 1/4" ratchets suck and seem to be missing teeth

Try disassembling and lubing them. I had the same issue and it was just some dirt and lack of lube that gave that feeling. If you post the make/model number on the handle I can probably find instructions of how to take it apart. Most modern CMs just have a circlip and it pretty much falls apart after that.
