I use these Drive-Loc sets at work for small equipment repair, and I’ve grown to like ’em.  As with other similar drivers, you insert the bit into the handle, but Wiha’s Drive-Loc mechanism allows you to adjust the bit length as well — you get full-length, stubby, and the in-between sizes in one bit.

The Drive-Loc handle looks like any other replaceable-shank driver, but the shank end of the driver locks the dimpled shanks in 1/8” intervals, for a length of 1.7” to 4.8”. The ergonomic, soft-grip handle is easy on the hands as well.

The Drive-Loc handle starts at $9, the bits start at $5, and the sets start at about $40.

    Paul,
    While I see a value in different shaft lengths, are you able to maintain a length if you need to apply pressure against the screw?

    Frank,
    I got to borrow a set of Wiha torx drivers a bit back. The dimples in the shaft allow the handle to lock on, preventing any slip. Also, the tips of the bits fit nice and snug into the screws. I was really impressed by the quality of the tools, but the price is a bit of a downer (but to be expected).

    Damn! I wish these were available years ago before I bought my long and short screwdriver sets! These could have saved me a bunch of space in my tool pouch.
