2-in-1 Interchangeable Rapi-Driv Screwdriver


Crank action handle spins screws fast with one hand

This Rapi-Driv Screwdriver ($14) from Klein Tools is for working on screws that are easy to damage if you apply to much torque. The shaft freely rotates in the handle and by applying rotation to the handle in a circle it applies just a little more torque than you normally can and still go twice as fast. It also does it without you having to reposition your hand each 1/2 turn. This makes it great for screwing in light switches, outlets and their covers without stripping anything. Any place you would be tempted to use a power driver even though you know you risk stripping the screw this is what you should use.
