Swivel Tip Screwdriver

When you can’t get a straight shot at a screw, sometimes there’s enough play between the bit and the screw head to drive it, but you’ll probably damage the head. If you’re lucky, maybe you can wrangle a stubby screwdriver into the space — or you can drive the screw with a swivel tip screwdriver.

This swivel tip screwdriver from Pratt-Read can drive screws at angles from 0 to 45 degrees. The driver accepts any common 1/4″ hex shank bits, and the handle stores the six included bits.

Other companies make similar products which may or may not be a better deal, but you can pick up one of Pratt-Read’s swivel tip screwdrivers online for about $13. You might not need it everyday, but it’ll be worth 10 times its weight in screws when you do.

    I picked up one of these at Sears under the Craftsman brand (Sears item# 00947476000 Mfr. model# 47476) Works great. Lifetime guarantee. The nice thing about this is the amount of angle is adjustable, which makes it much easier to control.

    Loooking at the Pratt-Reed web site, I see that they are the OEM for a lot of the drivers that Sears sells. Interesting…

    Got the Craftsman version too, for the motorcycle tool bag where space is at a premium. Gives me a lot of versatility in one package.

    I have one of these. The problem is that the swivel tip of the driver is generally too bulky to get to places where you really wish you had a swivel tip screwdriver….
