Stanley Stubby Ratcheting MultiBit Screwdriver Review

When it comes to screwdrivers, you might not care too much about what brand it is or how big it is, as long as it gets the job done. Out of countless choices, we’d like to highlight Stanley Stubby Ratcheting MultiBit Screwdriver as it offers neat features in a small and portable package. It can never be more frustrating than to be stuck with a cheap screwdriver that’s lose and not functional. With a built in storage for multiple tooltips and its ability to assist in whichever direction, this is worth having.

This is going to be a fairly short review since it’s just a screwdriver, but read on!

It comes in six tips that you can swap, in various three sizes of both cross and flat tips. You can see that these are heavy duty tips that will last, unlike shiny coated metals that tend to bend easily.

Thanks to the storage area on top of the screwdriver, you don’t ever have to worry about losing them. Awesome!

The best part of this screwdriver is its ratcheting mechanism, which will prevent it from turning both direction. In other words, when you’re turning the screwdriver without letting go of the grip, you can keep tightening the screw without lifting at all. Using the knob with the arrows, you can switch the direction with a twist easily.

This is what it looks like with a tip attached, and it’s worth noting that the metal part that holds the tip is magnetized. So it won’t fall off while you’re in action, but unfortunately, the tips themselves aren’t magnetized. Not a deal breaker though! It fits comfortably in my hand and this one’s definitely going to be a keeper for a very long time.
