Never lose a screwdriver from the set again!

Posted by on

Here is my suggestion: A ratcheting all-in-one screwdriver from Rolgear.

Rolgear ratcheting screwdriver

Made right here in BC this screwdriver comes with more driver types than most- 14 compared to 7 for many. You never have to look for the right screwdriver, they are all stored in the handle. It comes with 5 square bits (Robertsons), 4-Star (Phillips), 4-Sun (Torx) 2-Straight slot (only name it comes with) Perfect! And it ratchets- which means the mechanics allow the comfortable non-slip handle to apply turning force only in one direction while moving freely in the opposite. It can drive or remove screws, without removing the bit and handle from the screw head at the end of each turn.  

Retails about $ 25. Check them out at: https://www.rolgear.com/product-category/ratcheting-drivers/ The one I like is the “Multibit Ratchet Screwdriver 15 tips (double ended Bits)” for $24.95 on their website. Rolgear website lists the following retailers for carrying one or more of their products (phone first):

-Duncan Industrial- 2743 James St. in Duncan

-Adams Tarp and Tool

-Lordco

-Lee Valley carries one model- which does not have handle storage so I can’t recommend it.

So many uses: Hard to open battery compartments for your plastic singing pig, hang a picture or towel bar, replace slight switch covers-it truly is so convenient and a great time saver! So handy, convenient and makes anyone look like a pro!

A great gift for someone who needs some tools but not so romantic!
