If you can’t get enough reach with your ratchet you can just add an extension, but what’re you supposed to do with drivers?  A standard-sized blade, about 6″ or so, gets me through most jobs, but recently I was adjusting my headlights, and I needed a longer, thinner blade — GearWrench created their Long-Reach Torx Drivers for jobs just like this.

The drivers are 18″ long, about three times longer than standard drivers, with cushion-grip handles. The three-piece set includes the typical sizes T15, T20, and T25 — they’re oil and solvent-resistant, and the part number and size is laser-etched on the blade.

The three-piece set of GearWrench Long-Reach Torx Drivers sells for $30.

    Man, if only they’d had these 25 years ago, working on classic Macs would have been SOOOO much easier… (“Find a long-handled Torx T-15” being the first instruction, and usually the dealbreaker…)

    Noah: Sears stocked (and still stocks) a Craftsman Professional T-15 driver that has a shaft long enough to open any of the AIO Macs, at least as far back as the early 1990s. (I’m fairly certain they had it before that, but my firsthand experience with their driver only goes back to about 1994.)

    Damn – I NEED a driver like these but in a T30 size! Can’t find one ANYwhere. Reaching the lower torx screw to remove headlights on Dodge Ram trucks without scratching trim over bumper is impossible with a standard length driver.

    Anyone knows where to get a T30 at least 10″ long (blade – not overall) please email me?

    The overall length is 15 3/4″ so it should get you close….

    Part number is CAL912 you should be able to get the set for $20-30. Worth a shot.
