The Bit Bar is a great little screwdriver! Pocket screwdrivers have one main problem: bits. Some have two or three bits, others have several mini bits rattling around in them, and still others require carrying separate bit packs.
The Bit Bar solves this problem for me. It holds eight 1” long 1/4” bits to cover a lot of bases. Personally, I have three torx bits to cover most of my pocket knives, two Phillips, and three slotted. The bits are in the screwdriver (not rattling around), organized, easily accessible, and the Bit Bar is compact and easily carried in a pocket.
Now, some simple tricks and notes:
1. To slide the bits out: I put my fingers on the pocket clip and push the bar with my thumb.
2. To remove a bit: I raise the bits, pinch the bit I want, and lower the bit bar leaving the bit free.
3. Use bits that have a tall shoulder. Some 1/4” bits have a shorter 1/4” section and put color bands and such on them. Lower shoulder bits can jam the movement of the bar.
The different heads for the Bitbar cover all my daily needs in a tough pocketable package. If I find I need a specialized bit for my needs, I can easily swap a bit out. Highly recommended!
I am a computer technology director, and have built and repaired so many computers in my career, I could not count them. I have also been on the outlook for every type of multi screwdriver tool out their. Was excited to get this one, and it is perhaps the most expensive one I ever owned. However, two things I don't like. The sheath, and the extra BIT extension all by itself. I have a plastic multitool, with the extension added into the case, can be pulled out, and added to the bit slot for the extension when needed. Don't need the extension, great, but its all ONE UNIT, and I can put it into my pocket, or clip it to my belt if I wish. To carry the extension on yours, I have to use the sheath. Wish the extension was also included into the titanium holder like the other bits. HOW---The extension is not as long as the "lever" used to expose the bits. However, the "lever" used to expose the bits is not quite wide enough to allow the bit holder to go inside with it. Make the lever hole wide enough, and add a place for the bit extension to rest on the "lever" for the bits.
Love this thing. You never know when you’ll need a bit just out in the wild.
Slim design with simple mechanics and made of high grade material. I had searched through dozens of products looking for the perfect pocket size bit holder and decided on the bit bar. So far I love it and carry it with ease every day.Definitively a grade A product
