Style Name: Offset Rachet
I bought this ratchet screw driver to replace a similar one that I had lost. I thought this looked like a direct replacement, but its quality was very poor.

The two flat pieces that make up the handle are not tightly fastened together. The combination Phillips and slot screw bit is not removeable or reversible, as had been in my older one--the Phillips end is longer and the regular slot end so short it is almost useless.

In performance, the ratchet switch was hard to set into either position, forward or reverse; during use, it keept slipping to the other setting; and it is positioned right where your thumb naturally falls during use so no matter where you set it, it is constantly being disengaged or reversed.

Don't waste your money on this one. I threw it away.

A much better and cheaper choice with a variety of bits is

A couple of days ago, this screwdriver got me out of a very tight spot.

The very small head and the compact height of the bit made this tool work very well in a situation where the different style of offset screwdriver we tried would not get into position over the screw due to tight vertical clearance.

Came here on Amazon to buy a duplicate for another toolkit and discovered the other review here complaining that the bit is not removable or reversible:

* Not sure why you would want to reverse the bit - you just flip the entire screwdriver over.

* The product description doesn't claim that the bit is removable. Perhaps the reviewer was trying to replace the other General model that has a set of removable bits. However, because of the increased size of the head on that model, that driver requires more space to work.

When you hold the screwdriver by the end, you will not accidentally flip the lever.

This tiny ratchet screw driver has saved the day numerous times, reaching into restricted places where my fingers barely fit. The bits don't fall out and it's easy to switch direction for screwing in or out. The only drawback I've had is that there is no case, it's easy to misplace the bits. I got around it by keeping the bits in a 35mm film container...just remember to keep the handle and the film can together now!

I'd definitely recommend this handy addition to any toolbox.

IMHO the 8075 is the version to get as it uses standard 1/4" bits, letting you replace the bits when they get worn and letting you use any other bits you have - torx, allen, nut driver, etc.It's a tool you hope not to need often, but very handy to have around for when you do.

If all your screws have either a phillips or a flathead, this is a great driver for tight places.

Does not come with a case or holder for the bits. Included bits (4) have a ball lock that keeps them in place while in use. Take care not to lose the bits as other standard (1/4" hex) bits will fall out. However, a very simple modification can be made to overcome this shortcoming.

This isn't really all the "Low Profile" I bought it for a tight squeeze in my VW, and it was too wide. The screwdriver bits are too long for me, at about 3/4 inch. There individual right angle screwdrivers that seem better suited or tight squeezes.
