    Great idea so I made one it is now added to my key ring

    Haha, nice! I'll have to make one when I get home from work. :D I have that bit set on the end, in the red case. Harbor Freight FTW.

    If you want one without destroying a t-socket harbor freight sells a ring driver that ratchets for under 5 bucks. I think the t driver costs more than that. Another option would be to drill a hole in a 3/8 to 1/4 inch adapter, which are normally cheap and people can have extras lying around that they don't mind destroying, but drilling thm is pretty hard to do without messing up a good bit.


    Votecoffee's link worked fine for me, but i still like your version better. Didn't have the bar in my (rather limited) set, so i'm looking for a substitute...i may have to get far clever, as i don't think my drill press is up to putting a big hole in a hardened socket. I like the design so much, i may buy a T/spanner/breaker bar just to pirate the parts. Thanks, again for the clever design.

    This is awesome!

    Very nice, another easy way is to add an "ACE" type key to your keyring. Sometimes it takes a tap with a hammer on the small blade outside the round part of these keys, but a 1/4" hex bit fits inside the hollow part of the key pretty nicely.

    So long as you don't mind, I'm passing this one around to a few cycling blogs I frequent, brilliant idea.


    So simple, and I think I have all the bits I need...
