I have been in the trades about 20 years and never seen one. It is a combo head screwdriver. You know how alot of our boxes and devices have combo heads? It will probably get thrown into my bags and never used. I just thought it was cool. Simple pleasures.

Another one of thoise things you didnt think you needed until you see it. In my work over the years my insulated set has always worked fine . I was always amazed that electrical outlet covers were flat head and not phillips.. Just sayin!!

I cant seem to get 1 day out of their #2 phillips screwdrivers though, went to Kobalt for that one.
They seem to hang in there.

They used to...

The quality has slipped, and they don't warrantee like they used to either.
It's still about as good as you're likely to find though.

It never once crossed my mind that I needed one of those.

I've had great luck with one of the bent/swiveling flatheads for switchbox covers.

They look like these:

Combo heads should be banned. They suck. Anyone who turns screws should be required to have both types of screwdriver.

They usually do that after they strip the screw heads out and then send the box back to the factory saying they sent a defective box


BANNED!

My Milwaukee 11 in 1 has one. I think I've only ever used it on panel doors and dead fronts.

I used the torx bit in my 10-in-1, for the first time, yesterday, to secure the cordgrip for the tail on a transformer on an LED light pole head, from Denmark. Thought I was up a creek, at first, because I don't normally carry torx drivers.

Interesting. Most of my work is done with a Dewalt driver drill. I will have to check one of these out.
