Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Klein Hex Head Slide Driver Video Review

KLein Hex Head Slide Driver

Pick two common hex head screw sizes you come across a lot. What did you choose? If you’re an electrician or an HVAC Pro, chances are you chose 1/4″ and 5/16″. And if that’s you, you’ll love the new Klein Hex Head Slide Driver in its 2-in-1 form. One way to make this multi-driver tool is to pull the shank out and flip it around. But to cover these two common sizes, Klein came up with an ingenious concept.

The head slides up and down slightly. In the lower position, you have a 1/4″ magnetic nut driver. Slide the head and secure it in place with the thumb wheel lock and you have a 5/16″ magnetic nut driver. The action is simple and smooth.

The Klein Hex Head Driver also comes in an 8-in-1 version with additional bit and driver sizes to add some versatility. You can read that review by clicking here.

So kick back in your office chair and check out the video. Be sure to stick around for the outtakes at the end and make sure your boss is out of earshot for a few minutes. Or he can watch it with you and you’ll be a hero for discovering his or her new favorite YouTube channel.

Video not your thing? You can read the review here.

The dumbest tool review ever, and a video! really guys… what a waist of time! What there aren’t at least 30 screw drivers on the market that don’t do basically the same thing. I want my 60 seconds back to my life after watching video.
