Description:
The patent mentions the sockets, universal joint, and rod handle shown in the drawings. The key item in the patent is the unique spring-loaded "slip-clutch" ratchet section.

Mossberg took over U.S. production in 1909, and made the Auto-Cle the center of an extensive line of socket sets.

Contals' Nov. 7, 1916 "Extensible Tool" patent (no. 1,203,853) is based on the AUTO-CLE.
