Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GimpyD Good Construction, Terrible Design
This offset screwdriver appears to be well-made. Unfortunately, the design is terrible. You can see this quickly when comparing to standard offset screwdrivers which have an elongated "s" shape.
The purpose of an offset screwdriver is typically to get into tight spaces.
The design of this tool with:
- Drive tips facing opposite directions on the same end means that the tool won't fit into as many tight spaces. When installing a doorknob, for example, you can't get to the screws.
- Drive tips facing the same direction on opposite different ends, means that you either can't insert the driver into the screw head or, if you do, the opposite end of the tool will scratch whatever you're working on. In the doorknob example, if you can get one end of the screwdriver to the screw, the opposite end of the tool will scratch the door when you try to turn the screw.
It seems the designer and the positive reviewers of this tool have never really used it. I did and I'm returning it if I find the receipt.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by drt42 Pretty good offset screwdriver !
This one is a lot better than the old style "S-bend" offset screwdrivers. Worked perfectly when I needed to tighten a phillips screw in a very tight spot. Only small drawback, is that it is not very comfortable to push on the "head" to get more engagement force - the "head" has screwdriver tips sticking out both sides... but you can comfortably push nearby the head, which is good enough.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OldTrainMan Not the best design
This item was purchased because of limit access to install a door knob set, it failed in that category. The overly large square protrusions on the ends prevent the tool from turning in tight restricted areas. The bits need to be slightly longer to reach deeper. I have owned better designs many years ago.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LancasterLarry Excellent Product! Just what I was looking for!
I needed a screwdriver capable of working in a tight place, as the armrests of my Dad's wheelchair were getting loose. The offset screwdriver that I purchased at our area Home Depot was exactly the tool I needed! I had the armrests retightened easily and in no time at all!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pj1954 This is a tool that I have looked for a long time
There have been so many situations where a right angle screw driver would prove to be priceless. I purchased this for a specific application and have used it a number of times since for other applications. I will always have one of these with my tools
