Many of us store our screwdrivers on hanging racks were you can see the top of the handle but not the tip. Half the time you pull out a tool with the wrong tip. A few screwdrivers come with a symbol on the top to indicate what type the driver is. This instructable will give you one way to do this.


Step 1: Tools and Materials

Old cd rom or other disposable surface

Single edge razor blade or equivalent

White electrical tape ( or other color to your choice )

Screwdrivers to mark

Cross head, not Phillips-Phillips head is a very specific type of screwdriver head, designed to provide the strongest grip on the screw head it can until the screw requires too much torque to turn, at which point it will slip out of the head. Also, USB plugs have the proper side marked with the symbol, without exception.
You are right about the usb markings, but I cannot read the black on black. The photos &quot;clearly&quot; show the markings
You don't have to read it, you just have to feel it.
Good point, i will try this out.
Great idea! This happens to me too with my screwdrivers in my tool bag, too.
