[Home Depot] Husky 12-in-1 Quick-load Ratcheting Screwdriver with 6 Driver Blades in Handle - $13.98

Decent price for a ratchet screwdriver with commonly used bits and a lifetime warranty. The ratchet mechanism is very smooth and satisfying! The only function missing is that the bits are not magnetic. IIRC, in store showed the reg price as $24 or $25. It was recently $14.98 so it's gone down a buck from last week.

Overview
Model # 99515 Store SKU # 1001017709

This Quick-Load Ratcheting Screwdriver includes 6 driver blades that safely and securely store away in the handle. It accepts all 1/4-inch blades and is designed for single handed loading.

Quick-load ratcheting design
Comfort grip handles for non-slip usage
1/4-inch double-ended bits stored in handle
12 screwdrivers in 1 with double ended blades
Husky style design
Secure blade connection feels like a solid handle driver

Lifetime Warranty: If your Husky hand tool ever fails, bring it back and we will replace it free. Call 1-888-HD-HUSKY (1-888-434-8759) for service & support.

Own this, definitely better than the Milwaukee version, the quick change bits are a plus. Would highly recommend this

FWIW, I bought and returned this screwdriver recently because it was very difficult to pull the bits out, painful on the fingers. Wasn't fun to use. Others have had very positive experiences. Maybe I'm just weak sauce.

I was wondering the same thing after looking at it...how do you get the bits out?
By shoving your fingertip nail on the edge of the bit and pulling it out?

Seems shitty if so

I have the Milwaukee one and hate it for this reason. I ended up loading the bits backwards to make it a little easier.

I own the milwaukee one and maybe mine is a lemon, but I need a hammer to get the bits out of the holding chamber. There are in there soooo tight. Same with the stubby version. Is mine the only one?.?

Can't you do the same as Picquic screwdrivers: just leave the bit you last used in the screwdriver, don't store it away in the handle, and if you need to get another bit out, use it to push it out and take its place?

Doesn’t look like there’s any holes at the bottom to push through…if not, I imagine these would be pretty painful to pull bits out.

No holes to push the bits through on the shaft side. You need to push bits towards the base of the handle and pull them out. For me they're secure and are relatively smooth to pull out. I can see if QA is poor maybe some hold onto the bits too tight but mine is pretty smooth to pull out.

I just use the bit thats in the screwdriver to push the other ones out... over time and with use they loosen up a bit........ pretty much every one of these style I have had over the years has been this way.....

Exactly. So when I returned it I bought this instead:
https://www.homedepot.ca/product/picqui ... 1000405289

This one I'm really happy with. Easy to remove bits, quality feel, comfortable... I can live without the ratcheting for those features. I may go to Snap On for ratcheting but still not sold on the idea.

Sorry I don't mean to hijack OP, price is great if it works for your needs!

So, there are holes at both ends of the handle for each bit? From the pics it looks like they are only open at one end, which would be a pain.

I've owned this screwdriver for about 3-4 years now and it's been great for occasional work around the house and in the garage. The bits are loose enough in there that you can push up from the bottom and it'll expose enough to pull it out. That or use the bit you were just using to push out the one you need next

I bought this a few weeks ago. Really good tool and no issues with removing the bits. There's a slight gap between the bit and the screwdriver itself. Use your thumb, put it on top of the bit, and push it down. That'll push it far out enough of the screwdriver that you can then just grab the part that was pushed out and remove it. Very easy to do.

This is a great screwdriver..., have owned it for several years now, paid the same price for it years ago... I have seen it come back at higher prices, but usually ends up on sale for $13 etc... each year.
