Manual Impact Screwdriver
Manual Impact Screwdriver

The Manual Impact Screwdriver is designed to remove screws with the power of an impact driver but not its bulk, weight, and cost. The tool features a solid impact cap at the end of the handle that's part of its drive-through hexagon bolster blade. When the cap is hit with a hammer, a cam rotation mechanism inside the handle turns the driving tip counter-clockwise about 12°, reportedly loosening even the most tightly imbedded screws without damaging either handle or blade. Often available as a set with Phillips head and slotted head, it's a normal screwdriver when used in a clockwise motion to insert a screw.

Estimated Cost Cost range: $20-$25 as a Phillips- and slotted-blade set

Limitations Limitations Addressed by Product: Upper extremity, Strength/endurance, Back
