Best $12 I've spent in a long time!

Post by Coyote » Fri Oct 12, 2018 2:00 am

If you've ever pulled or replaced the radio in the center console, you'll remember the 2 screws on the side of the mounting that are way back in there, in a narrow space. You have to put them in AFTER the radio and bracket is in and they are a stone bitch to get started without dropping them and the washers only make it worse. Drop one and you'll recall every cuss word you ever knew. . .

This tool cost me around $12 at my local Sears and I'd have gladly spent twice that because it makes the job dead easy.

I've seen them on Amazon too for about the same if you include shipping.

That's pretty cool! I guess it's a bit more solid then a magnetic tipped screwdriver.

Not only much more solid and secure, it works on brass screws as well. . .
