It’s been 75 years since Henry Phillips invented his famous screw head. Now the company is reinventing itself and has introduced a floating version of its famous screwdriver. We’ve all lost tools overboard so this is a welcome development. The hardened stainless steel shaft will resist rust, and the new Anti cam-out ribs on the bit help keep it in the screw head. The well thought out grip lets you get plenty of leverage on those hard-to-budge screws.
