Ideal Industries Inc. has introduced a new screwdriver with its Grip-n-Twist screw-holding mechanism. According to the company, the device helps contractors fasten screws into tight, hard-to-reach places.

The spring-action locking system engages and disengages screws with a simple thumb movement, letting the user set, start and then tightly fasten a screw with one-hand. The thermo-plastic Grip-a-Twist runs the entire length of the 7-inch tempered steel shaft for improved durability.

”Every contractor knows the frustration of reaching into a tight spot to install a screw, only to have it fall off the screwdriver again and again,” said Bruce Hartranft, product manager for Ideal. “Our newly designed screwdriver completely eliminates this problem by securely holding the screw until it is fully installed.”

The screwdriver is available in Phillips and Slotted versions.  For more information, visit www.idealindustries.com.
