Magnitized Driver Bits
The 2-in. bits are sold in two-packs and are available in #2 Phillips, #2 square drive, and T25 star drive
I don’t know why it has taken so long for a company to figure out how to make a magnetized driver bit that reliably holds long screws. Hitachi has finally done it, and the success seems to be thanks to a little magnetized collar surrounding the tip of the driver. The collar has maybe 1⁄16 in. of travel, allowing it to engage the entire head of the screw rather than just the recessed portion. The 2-in. bits are sold in two-packs and are available in #2 Phillips, #2 square drive, and T25 star drive for around $5 each. That may seem expensive for what is often considered a throwaway item, but these bits work so well that I think they transform the who-cares-what-brand attitude surrounding driver bits into a make-sure-to-get-the-Hitachis mentality.
