I have used the Makita and Stanley, and they are junk compared to the DeWalt. The BIG difference is that the collar on the DeWalt is spring-loaded so that you just push the bits in and they lock in. All the other brands that I have seen, you have to pull back the collar manually (a 2-handed operation) to insert the bit. The device is sturdy and a time-saver over other brands of similar function. DeWalt makes a few nice combo-sets as well.

This item lacks the "rubber finger grips for comfortable use" that is in the product description, and is also physically different from the picture shown here. See my uploaded pic for what item actually looks like.

I have been doing a lot of work that requires me to drill holes and then use my drill as a screwdriver. This little gadget makes me tremendously efficient. I just pop the drill bit in and I'm ready to work. It cut my time by about 75%. Well worth the money.

This item is made pretty well. Holds securely. Love the feature of pulling outward to release, simply pushing the bit into the holder and it automatically snaps to hold.

BUT, this holder is actually very long, it is too long,... 3 inches long. That longer 3in length means more of a wobble when the chuck spins the drill bit. There is more loss of control in precise situations when the bit starts 3 inches out from the chuck. After it arrived I tried to find out how I made that mistake. But there is no mention of the length in the description beside the picture or directly below. Hmmmm.

So I backtracked further to see how I got snookered. Looking at the product picture, it does not appear to be particularly long. But pictures can be deceptive. The reviews were good. Don't think anyone mentioned or complained about the length. If they did I missed it. How was I supposed to know it was 3 inches long?? Finally, I checked the dimensions buried in the description: 5.8 x 2.9 x 1.3 inches. What does that mean to you? To me, that's unclear. Nothing about this item is 6in long, 3in wide etc.. 5.8x2.9x1.2inches seems to be the dimension of the shrink wrap cardboard the loader is encased in. That is not a fair description in my book. Reported this to Amazon Customer Support.

So I searched Amazon & ordered a Wera K Rapidaptor that's top quality, same features, 1/3 shorter than the Dewalt, and they did not hide the length of the holder...2inches. The line description beside the Wera holder is this: "Wera 889/4/1 K Rapidaptor Universal Bit Holder for 1/4" Hex Drives, 2in Long." Everything is right up front. The Wera carries a higher price but you get higher quality, more compact length, more control & LESS wobble vs the Dewalt DW2505 & is well worth the few extra dollars. Cannot recommend the 3in Dewalt DW2505.

This isn't too bad of a quick change chuck, but I have had some problems with mine. I have two dewalt drills and I have one for each and have the same problem with both.

First off, the one in the picture is not the one you get. The ones I got were all metal and knurled. (no big deal) The big problem that I have are my bits sometimes fall out when I point the drill down (on both of them). It seems that the ball inside gets stuck and you have to hit it on a hard surface to get it to dislodge. I used a craftsman with a craftsman drill for a long time and had no problems.

I still have had good luck with dewalt and will continue to buy their stuff. I suppose maybe I just got a couple of bad ones.

This chuck is extraordinarily easy to use with one hand, in contrast to many similar products where you need one to push down the collar and another to pull the bit out. This one has a small spring that coaxes the bit out far enough that it's free of the keeper but still in the chuck and easy to change. Highly recommended!

I have been looking for the exact function of this tool for a very long time. It not only locks driver bits tight and straight, it does it automatically. I have had the kind that you have to slide the lock manually and they ALWAYS unlock and drop the bit. They also wobble a little bit a the very least.

This tool tightly holds not only the longer bits with the groove around the base but also the short bits that almost everyone has a boat-load of.

IF this little gem ever fails to function, I will absolutely buy another. I might also make this a Christmas gift for a few of my friends and family this year.

This is a sturdy tool and handy to have in the tool bag. I had borrowed one from another tech on a job where we had to drill several holes in each of multiple units. The holes were three different sizes and this tool helped make short work of the task. I would recommend anyone working in the field who uses drill bits or powered screwdrivers to get one of these.
