It’s a much needed third hand! I first discovered these drive guides as part of a deck building pack offered by a local home center. That was at least eight years ago and I have been using these ever since. They do what they are designed to do – allow you to drive screws one handed. I have had great success driving every length of screw up to and including 4″ with this driver and my 9.6V DeWalt cordless drill. I have never worn one of these out while using it for its designed purpose, but when I used it in a pinch to drive hundreds of metal barn siding fasteners (I removed the bit and was using the guide as a socket drive) the end mushroomed out and lost its shape.In the end, when you are on the end of a tall ladder and you would rather be holding onto the ladder than holding onto the screw so you can drive it, this is the tool for you. Also, if you will be driving a lot of screws in wood and you don’t want the skin of your fingertips worn off as you steady each screw for driving, buy one of these!

Get one, you’ll save money and do better work When driving screws, you normally slip off the screw on occasion, driving the drive bit into your project. Also, when your drive bit wears out, they are expensive to replace.The magnetic drive guide solves those problems and another.1) It uses short, cheap bits – so you spend less on replacement parts.2) You can hold the outer barrel of the guide (it doesn’t spin with the drill) so you can guide in long screws without the bit slipping off.3) It’s magnetic, so it holds screws. You can point your drill down, and the bit stays on.4) The outer barrel makes using slotted screws more manageable (although I usually only use it to take them out and replace them with phillips screws).I’ve been using them for the 10(?) years that they’ve been on the market. I’ve worn a few of them out, but I try and never drive a screw without one.

Very pleased The guy who wrote a long review about this thing wearing out… that’s why they’re not very expensive. Yeah, you use these things heavily for a year and they’re going to wear out, but it’s 5 bucks, and this is a great bit tip holder/ guide. it’s magnetic so your screw stays on, and the guide is very smooth. For those of you who don’t know what this is, it’s not just another bit tip holder, the black part that says Dewalt is actually a sleeve that slides out over the bit tip and helps to guide the screw, gets pushed back as the screw goes into the surface of whatever you’re screwing, and you move on.Don’t worry about dumb people giving bad reviews, this is a great piece to have and its cheap.
