Customer Comments

  • I thought this would work great for tweaking small POT’s and screw terminals. It’s just slightly too big to do either :-/

    • It’s easy to grind it down a bit though. Sparkfun should consider carrying plastic screwdrivers. Those are useful for adjusting trimpots without shorting them out.

  • Awesome sqew driver get it with your order

  • I just received four of these. Two of them won’t stay in the socket and fall right out. The other two are slightly snug, but slide out when shaken. I recommend not buying.

  • I just received mine today. Is the screw bit suppose to be so loose in the socket? I can’t imagine keeping this clipped in a pocket or pocket protector without worrying about losing the bit.

    • No, the screw bit should fit very snug inside the socket. Contact tech support if you are still having issues(techsupport@sparkfun.com)

Great screwdrivers

Read everyone else’s reviews and was surprised. I’ve purchased these things 4 times in the past few years and probably have around 15. They’re great for easy screws and torquing things, plastic handle keeps me insulated from twist pots while working circuits, and there’s a magnet or clip or something inside, the phillips/flathead part never falls out. Only down side is you can’t put lots of torque through them (not for disassembling things) as the diameter is narrow, but for casual work they’re great.

Good and Bad

I’ve ordered a number of these over the years, and the quality lately seems to have gotten worse. For one of the recent acquisitions the shaft just falls out all the time. There is no more pressure fit to hold it in place. For another when I try to pull the shaft out to flip it around the small white plastic piece comes out with it because the fit is too tight. It’s a handy little screwdriver for cheap, but it’s also a bit frustrating. (The ones I bought years ago seemed much better quality-wise.)
