Leatherman has come out with a new ratcheting driver – a ratcheting screwdriver bit holder – for their multi-tools.
Leatherman says that their new ratcheting screwdriver attachment “adds torque to any task” and also “fits standard 1/4″ or Leatherman flat bits.”
I’m not sure about the “adds torque” part, but the standard 1/4″ hex holder and ratcheting function are certainly huge conveniences.
Select Leatherman multi-tools have a special screwdriver bit holder that works with their customized flat-shaped 1/4″ screwdriver bits. This allows for the bit holder to maintain a lower profile, and the screwdriver bits are also easy to store in-tool or via separate holder accessory.
Leatherman also makes a bit driver extender that gives these Leatherman multi-tools longer reach, as well as the ability to use standard 1/4″ screwdriver bits. This new ratcheting bit adapter does similar, but also has the ratcheting function for faster turning of longer-threaded fasteners.
Details are still coming out, but we know that the Leatherman ratchet driver is made of stainless steel and measures 3.25″ long. It also has a direction selection switch with central locking position for manual turning.
The ratcheting driver works with any Leatherman tool that is equipped with a large bit holder:
- Charge+ TTi
- MUT EOD
- Skeletool (CX, RX, standard)
- Heritage Charge+
- Heritage Wave+
- Super Tool 300M
