2.0 out of 5 stars Almost GREAT--If I could only use it, December 13, 2010

This review is from: Leatherman 931009 Bit Driver Extension (Tools & Home Improvement)
Great accessory, lets you use your Leathermsn in places where the tool handle wouldn't fit. In REALLY tight places, you can use this without the Leatherman as a stand-alone driver--it has a knurl on its shaft for that purpose. I have the 40-piece bit set (buy one if you don't have one already!), and this fis perfectly in the nylon case with all the bits. If there's a different bit you need, buy a standard 1/4" hex shaft bit anywhere. It will fit. This is a high-quality piece that feels great in the hand.

So, what's not to like? As others have said, the retention ring is TOO good. The Leatherman bits have a groove which the ring grabs like a pit bull on crack. The last time I used it, I did not have the strength to remove the dang bit, even with pliers. So I now have to send the two unified parts back to Leatherman.

Hopefully they have solved the problem by now. If so, I'd give it a full 5 stars. Does any of you have one that has the right balance between retention and aggression?

How long did it take for Leatherman to send replacement parts back to you?

Honestly, I just never bothered to send it back. Got another, which works OK. The postage would have been nearly the same price--I paid ten bucks back then--if I consider the half-gallon of fuel to get to the post office and back.

OK, poor excuse. I was just being lazy. It's just too easy to click a button and get stuff via Prime.

My bit is stock in the extender, did they get it out?

I found that if I jiggle the bit side-to-side (sort of like jiggling a key in a lock) while pulling on the bit with my fingers, it will come out. This is preferable to scratching up the bit with pliers.
