Klein has come out with a couple of new combination-tip screwdriving products: #1 and #2 fixed-blade screwdrivers, a 2pc screwdriver set, an 11-in-1 multi-bit screwdriver, and #1 and #2 bits in 1″ and 3.5″ sizes.
So what do you use a combination-tip screwdriver on?
Combination-head screws! These screws typically feature a combination Phillips and slotted recess. In theory, these screws could be turned by either Phillips or slotted screwdrivers – whichever one you have on-hand. They are commonly found on electrical devices, conduit fittings, and for some common installations.
Klein has found that, since these screws are designed to work with either Phillips or slotted screwdrivers, the fit might not always be perfect. A loose fit can lead to stripping, which can lead to immediate or down-the-road problems.
The new combo-tip screwdriver fits the entire screw head, by featuring both Phillips and slotted elements.
Users don’t have to use combo-tip screwdrivers on combo-tip screws, but it’s good to have that option, especially in USA-made tools.
