It's a fucking socket wrench.

Ratchet is If Ghetto and Hot Shitty Mess had a baby, and that baby had no father, and became a stripper, then made a sex tape with an athlete, then became a reality star!

Basically Ratchet is a term for someone who is such a ghetto/slutty/ugly/trashy hot mess that you have to use a word that doesn't even technically apply because what you are seeing is such a mess that it goes beyond any normal description.
God Damn! Look at that Ratchet ass bitch over there!

You are pointing out an extremely unattractive woman walking by in a Bikini too small for her body type and her tampon string hanging out.

A Ghettoized form of the word Wretched: very unhappy, ill, etc.: very bad or unpleasant: very poor in quality or ability.

Popularized by American waste-of-space (See: Rapper) Lil' Boosie in his song "Ratchet" in which Boozie, aka Torrence Hatch, describes many of the foul people he encountered in his underprivledged life before being incarcerated for drug possession. He is currently a drain on the American taxpayer.

The term Ratchet is now used in excess by dumb, middle-class, white girls in an attempt to escape their mundane lives by pretending to be in touch with "the Hood". These tween cum stains are under the impression that their generation has, yet again, created something new and hip. Little do they know, the term Ratched is merely the latest example of a high school drop out using a mixture of phonetics and ebonics to create cock-ups of legitimate English words.

These tween morons are exactly the type of nimrod that Lil' Boozie would have tried to sell codeine to outside of the local mall.
