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.
Cool little tool
It’s a great product the only reason I gave it 4 stars is the lack of a built in extension. But if that’s not important to you the capacity of bits in this pocket screwdriver is the most I’ve seen.
Compact and useful. Solid feel when removing/inserting bits. Highly recommended!
The product is very well made and comfortable to carry. My only complaint is that the springs allowing the bit holder to move provide little resistance and the slightest amount of pressure from your hand forces the bits into your palm or fingers (depending on your grip) as you use the tool. I plan to change the springs, and don't feel that should be necessary with a $120 tool. That aside, this would be a 5 start review if the bit holder stayed in place during use.
