Pros: Top tool. 95% of normal screwdriving needs sorted!
Cons: Everybody will want yours.
The Bottom Line: A screwdriver that fixes more than just screws.
STANLEY BOSTICH 4 IN 1 FTW!!!!
This is a life-changing tool.
It's so small it can store anywhere: kitchen drawer, purse, pocket
It's sturdy and easy to use: rubber grip, magnetic bits. This ain't no toy
It covers 95% of normal screwdriving needs -- two sizes of Philips head, two sizes of flat
Design makes it unlikely that you'll lose pieces. It stands in sharp contrast to cumbersome 'all in one' screwdrivers with their thick barrels containing two of the original six bits
Put it right in the drawer with the forks. NEVER GO INTO YOUR @#$* FREEZING COLD MUDROOM TO STEP OVER WAGONS AND RAKES TO GET TO THE TOOL BOX TO SEARCH THROUGH SIXTEEN FLAT-HEAD SCREWDRIVERS JUST TO FIND THE PHILIPS HEAD (WHICH IS TOO BIG FOR THE SCREW ANYWAY) EVER AGAIN!!!! Thank you, Stanley Bostich!
I mail-ordered a pile of these and gave them to my entire extended family at Christmas. Everybody instantly saw the value of such a perfectly designed tool -- especially the person who had recently sat screwdriverless at a bar with a bartender offering free beer for anybody who could swiftly provide a screwdriver. 4-in-1 in purse permanently, because who knows when that sort of thing might happen again?
YOU NEED THIS:
Having this brilliant tool next to the batteries, and not having to trudge off to the tool box, made battery changes and other odd jobs pleasant instead of a flaming PITA. And barring real tragedy, it is precisely the "Where is the blasted Philips head?" irritations that bring drudgery and unhappiness into one's life. This sort of tool fixes so much more than just loose screws.
AND WHATTA BARGAIN:
I bought my first at a local hardware store for over $5. I thought it was an amazing buy at that price. A little searching on the web finds a lot of places selling it quite cheaply -- $2.39 and thereabouts. At that price, you can get one for your bag or briefcase, one for every floor of your house, one for the car, the boat, the office, and every friend and relative you like or merely want to curry favour with.
Life would be much happier if everything in it was designed as intelligently as the Stanley Bostich 4 in 1 Pocket Screwdriver. It really is that good.
