At first glance, the first-party Leatherman bit driver extender seems more of a convenience than a necessity. However, modern Leatherman multi-tools have switched from the old multi-tool screwdriver style--several, dedicated screwdrivers--to a single large bit driver compatible with any of Leatherman's forty-plus proprietary double-ended bits. While the bit driver affords vast expandability for a Leatherman multi-tool, it does sacrifice the reach that a dedicated screwdriver would otherwise lend. With this bit driver extender, not only do you extend the reach of your driver, thus enabling you to reach recessed screws otherwise impossible to engage, but it also grants you the ability to use any standard 1/4"-drive hex bit. The bit driver extender can also be used with any Leatherman tool or knife that features a large bit driver (Charge models, Surge, Wave, e306x/e307x, k502x/k503x, h502/h503). Not only that, but the removable bit drivers available for various other Leatherman tools (Juice series, Core, Blast, Fuse, Kick (Leatherman 830045 Removable Bit Driver for Blast/Fuse/Kick
), and even all three pruners models) accept the bit driver extender. Actually, any 1/4"-drive hex bit extension would accept this bit driver extender. The bit driver extender conveniently fits in one of the elastic side pockets featured on some Leatherman sheaths.
