  • 143x more Gripping Power
  • 3 Position Ratcheting Mechanism
  • Lifetime Warranty

The Craftsman® Extreme GRIP™ platform is designed to offer a better fit and grip with fastener, making loosening, tightening, and starting faster and easier.

A new generation of bit driver is backed by the Craftsman Extreme Grip Family. This Extreme Grip Bit Driver has 143x more gripping power vs. a standard bit driver. The magnetic collar on the bit driver can slide out to provide positive gripping to hold fasteners in place. When it retracts, it provides access to fasteners in tight spaces. Equipped with three position ratcheting mechanism that provides smooth operation, this bit driver is a true, one-handed operation versus a magnetic tip screwdriver.
Storage compartment inside handle creates excellent storage space for the insert bits. Ergonomic dual material handle offers comfort in hand.

I got this and tried it out, but calculated it only was 134x times as effective as a regular screwdriver. Maybe it's just a typo, but either way I returned it for an extreme refund.

I have this screwdriver and love it. The bits can be a pain to get in and out, but they work well.

I would wait for the craftsman professional ratcheting screwdriver to be on sale compared to this one. Made in USA and is same price as this.

Cool deal, too bad the made in USA one isn't that price anymore. Looks like it hasn't been for 6 months or I'd wait 😑

The USA made one is not the Extreme grip bits. I thought it was a gimmick until I used one. They really do grip on to screws very well.

143 times as much grip? No, what a weird way to put that.

But it definitely prevents your screwdriver from slipping and stripping the head.

I just watched part of the video on Sears, the 143X grip is using the magnetic collar (it slides out to surround the bit) to hold the screw/bolt/nut VS using a a regular bit driver insert.

Thanks for that. I scanned the listing and saw no mention of diamond coated tips, like the regular extreme grip drivers have, so wondered what that 143x was referencing.

Bought it for $2.94, tax included, with a $10 off $10 surprise points. This is a very good deal. However, my local Sears has stopped adding new tools to stock. This might be the final dance with Sears.

Lol!
In seriousness, in what application would you want to have so much torque in such a small form factor and small hardware? It's easy enough to misjudge eyeballing the right size bit and consequently strip screws as it is?
