Here you get the best deal possible.
Fit right in the pouch I got from Amazon with my other stuff it makes a great addition.
It works well as described for the weight and form factor and the finish looks great. I'd give five stars but the extension bar that was included arrived with the shank installed backwards. It's impossible to use as the socket where bits are installed is completely circular. I've replaced it with my own and its part of my daily kit.
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.
I'm so disappointed after drooling over this for months and finally deciding to pull the trigger. This feels like a cheap AliExpress knock-off of what it should've been. The mechanism gets bound up easily and stuck canted at an angle. The spring pressure on the bar is way too low and the whole thing sounds like a clanky old screen door. I am worried about the durability, feels cheap. Do not recommend.
