Great tool. I had mine for 3 years now, still my primary screw driver. There is some surface rust but still works fine. The best feature are the 3 nut driver sizes.

Thanks OP. I own a few really old multi-headed screw drivers, but they are all missing pieces. This will be nice to have.

I've had one for over a year, I love it. I keep it in the junk drawer. It's the best Multi bit screwdriver I've had. It can really handle a lot of torque and pressure and bits are super secure when you're screwing.

Is this hard to switch between the bits compared to picquic?

I do like how it can be shortened for those tight areas tho

How does this compare to the well reviewed picquic?. What are the differences apart from the 3 nut setters?

have one too

my favorite screwdriver. good balance and it has 2 Phillips head bits and the smaller Phillips head are thin enough for my kid's toy.

the rubber gets worn out because I use the opposite side as a hammer

i didn't even know that we could use it like that (the nuts) didn't have a use I guess. I thought it was to hold the bits

thanks!

How is this compared to Picquic? How common are those smaller nut setters? I always enjoyed how the picquic bits can be used in a 1/4 impact driver as well.

When I think of Vise Grips I don't think about screwdrivers. What's next, Kleenex Dishwashers?

I strongly prefer just a bunch of cheap single purpose screwdrivers because these ones with interchangeable parts more often than not are too fat and/or too short to get where they need to go.

I'd take the PicQuic. The best part of the PicQuic system is add on component bit retention. You can't lose a component bit since you need your last component bit to eject your current component bit. PicQuic FTW!

What? This is the perfect screwdriver tool...also the brand is Irwin not vice grip. Dont know why OP included that in the title but am guessing they just copied the amazon title...

If the shaft is any wider than the screw head (which all of these types of drivers are), there are going to be tons of places too tight for it to be any good in - so far from perfect, you still need traditional long screwdriver that can fit into recesses no wider than a screw head.
