I think they are part of a refrigeration socket set.

Lots of switch bezels use though also. I have a few different sizes that I used quite often.
VWs to D10s, I've fixed em.

Skip. The sockets are marked as follows RF34, RF36, RF33, RF19, RF35, RF15, and RF26. All are marked Bonney and are 9/32" drive. They came in a nice little metal box marked Bonney, the box also had some Plumb sockets,a few snap on sockets and a nice little snap on ratchet marked MIDGET M 70 M pat No 1854513. Jim

Coolford is correct. They were marketed as refrigeration sockets.
A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.

Hello, I agree that they are Refrigeration Sockets. They are used for removing Gland Nuts & Packing Gland Nuts , that is how the socket is referred to. These types of sockets were also made by other manufacturers. Bonney also made 1/4" Male Drive Gland Nut Sockets, to fit their 1/4" Female Drive Refrigeration Wrenches, as can be seen in their Catalog No. 60. Just sayin' Lou
