Best Nut Drivers in 2020



Klein Tools 32561 Screwdriver / Nut Driver, 6-in-1 Stubby Screwdriver with Multi-Bits: 2 Phillips, 2 Flat Heads, 2 Nut Drivers Review:


As with most klein tools, these works great and I expect it to last me decades. I have a lot of klein tools that my dad handed down to me and they are easily 30+ yrs old that he used during his electrician and construction days and they are still working strong. Seeing how well his klein tools perform, especially after so long, I only buy Klein myself now. You get what you pay for, these cost a premium but they will probably last a life time, or two. I go by my dad's philosophy when it comes to tools, pay a premium now and only need to worry about buying it once. I have a lot of klein screwdrivers but didn't have any multi-bit drivers so I decided to buy a couple and I'm liking it. It has the klein quality that you come to expect from this company. The bits were nice and snug, didn't have to worry about them falling out or the shaft falling out. These are just like the other kleins I just bought, but in stubby version. Just need to get the stubby ratcheting version too now.



Malco MSHC 1/4 & 5/16 Reversible Hex Chuck Driver Review:


I'm an HVAC installer, I use this bad boy EVERY DAY, huge time saver. When I need to change nut sizes I don't have to root through a tool bag or search through pockets. I just reverse the chuck and i'm ready to keep going. Some of the guys i work with have complained that the shafts on these things have snapped on them, I've had mine for 3 months and its still going strong.



Topec Impact Bolt & Nut Remover Set 13 Pieces, Nut Extractor Socket, Bolt Remover Tool Set Review:


I’ve been looking around to find something that could help me with removing a pair of bolts. I then tried my vice grip pliers on them and those started rounding off the outer portion of the bolt head. I spent 20 to 30 minutes during that time to no avail. I was getting very frustrated so I started looking online to see what would work. I watched some videos dealing with my issue and most of them used a bolt and nut extractor to help them with the problem so I decided to give that a try. I looked at all the various brands available until I came to the Rocket Socket brand. Not many comments but the ones available gave nice reviews so I went ahead and purchased a set. When it arrived I opened the package to give it a look. I took out the size needed, I then gently tapped it in with a hammer, and then attached my ratchet wrench. I took a deep breath and looked at the wrench thinking that I was going to get same outcome as the other attempts. As soon as I started turning the wrench the bolts started to turn with ease and had both bolts off in less than two minutes. I was so amazed and extremely happy with the result.



Makita A-97639 Impactx 4 Pc 1-3/4″ Magnetic Nut Driver Set Review:


Bought this set to throw in the bag with my Makita subcompact impact driver and used two of the four drivers within 24 hours of getting them. Quality is excellent. No slop. Only quibble is that I wish they'd come with a holder to keep them together. I ordered a bunch of bit holders elsewhere for less than 25¢ each, so no big deal. For what little extra it would have cost Makita to include this, however, it would have been a thoughtful touch, and I'd happily have paid a little extra to avoid having to source one elsewhere. Have to knock a star off for this, but four stars is still excellent, and I'd buy them again regardless.

XOOL 80 in 1 Precision Set with Magnetic Driver Kit, Professional Electronics Repair Tool Kit with Portable Oxford Bag for Repair Cell Phone, iPhone, iPad, Watch, Tablet, PC, MacBook Review:


I used the screwdriver and one of the blue pry tools to get into my laptop quite easily. This kit had the appropriate type and size of driver head, and I assume it will work for just about any laptop given the number of heads that it comes with. I was able to remove all nine screws without any damage to the screw heads, so I'm not worried about stripping them with this tool, even over time. I also found the magnetic tip was very helpful for getting the screws in and out. This driver feels very light, but I was surprised by the quality of the extension rod and coupler, which still manage a very solid connection. The only negative I can think of is that the tray holding the screwdriver and heads is made of very flimsy plastic, but the case overall is well made, which is more important to me. Overall I am impressed by this set considering the price and as long as it holds up I would consider it to be a good value.



Nut Driver Bit Sets with Chrome Vanadium Steel, 20pcs 1/4'' Hex Nut Driver Master Kit for Quicker Change Chuck, Electric Hand Drill - PNDB1A Review:


I have used them for a while now and none of them are damaged or broken. I had to go through 3 sets of harbor freight quality of crap tools to consider it a donation for a cause of incompetence for harbor freight. With that said, these have been working fine. There have been a couple hex style lag screws that didnt fit properly.

Megapro Marketing USA NC 211R2C36RD Ratcheting Screwdriver Review:


I've used many ratchet screwdrivers, and hated most of them. This one blows them all away. Utterly amazing product. Here are the reasons why:
1) Ratchet mechanism is so smooth. When you use a Milwaukee ratchet screwdriver, you can tell this tool is about 2x as smooth. Simply amazing feeling when you use it. It's like a knife through hot butter :)
2) Rock solid. I have wrenched on this, and it holds strong.
3) The bit storage is super convenient. It spins so you can easily find what you want. The spinning also makes it very comfortable while unscrewing or screwing.

The only thing that the Milwaukee has on this driver is storage length. The Milwaukee has longer bits, which makes it quite a bit shorter when storing it away. But, I'd take this over the Milwaukee simply for the amazing ratchet action. This tool sold me on a ratchet screwdriver.

I only keep a normal flathead around to use as a pry bar. Other than that, I store all my other screwdrivers in my big toolbox now (where I keep the tools I don't use as much).

NOTE - I love Milwaukee for most of my tools, so that is why I keep using that brand for comparison purposes.



Irwin Tools 1948774 8-in-1 Ratcheting Screwdriver Review:


This is another great tool from Irwin, I think they hold the top spot for hand tool makers in my book now, and this ratcheting 10-in-1 (whatever number they use) is another great design. I'm an electrician and I really need all 3 nut drivers (1/4, 5/16 and 3/8) to be worth carrying it. This thing is heavier than most, which is a downside as I got it to carry on my pocket all day, but, not so heavy that is go back to my Milwaukee (which is still a quality tool). I didn't really need ratcheting, but this was the only Irwin I saw with everything I did need, and I like that the ratchet selector is well designed so you doesn't flip accidentally. The build quality feels far superior and the steel is thicker, I was actually using it, without the bit, to pry loose a rusted handle and it is sturdy. This is the third time their design has far outclassed everything else I've ever used. I will be looking to replace all my tools with Irwin from now on.
