ScrewBall

ScrewBall The Swiss-Tech ScrewBall is a clever little device that combines eight different screwdrivers into a single keychain device. When folded, the metal screwdrivers fall entirely within the plastic "ball", preventing damage to other items nearby. When unfolded for use, the "ball" provides a firm grip for torquing on stubborn screws.

Off The Record

  • Despite the plastic in its construction, the ScrewBall is surprising well built. It is an altogether satisfying little tool. Perhaps its primary shortcoming is the ball itself, which creates a somewhat uncomfortable lump in one's pocket.
