Insider Info from Joshua
"I was at a friend’s dispensary in Southern California. She featured a lot of drill through rimless and was working on mounting a lens and asked if I could hold the hex nut driver while she tightened a screw. “What would you do if I wasn’t here?” I asked. “I’d wrestle with it and maybe scratch the lens before I gave up and waited for a second set of hands”. The rest is history. Think of all the times you ask a coworker to help you with an adjustment and instead use this little work station. Except of course for spring hinge frames, we already have something better for that."

Operates using two AA batteries (included). 2-3/4" W x 2-3/4" H x 4" D.

Do you have a screw stuck so tightly that any more pressure will strip the driver slot and create more problems?
Use a drop of this specially formulated screw loosening fluid on the head and base of the screw and allow it to sink in. The fluid is designed to flow between the threads to make it easier to break free. 6cc applicator.
