Introduction: the Belt Screwdriver

If you are a MacGyver type of person, you will need this belt.

You never know when you might need a screwdriver.

In this Instructable, I demonstrate a way to add a screwdriver to your belt.

As long as you are wearing your belt, you'll always have a screwdriver with you.

If you are Interested in the video version of this Instructable and the embedded video does not appear on your mobile device, here is an alternative link

Step 1: Remove the Prong From Your Belt

Step 2: Bend the Screwdriver in the Shape of a Prong

I used one of those voltage testing screwdrivers.

I find them very handy as they also fit some Philips screws.

I broke off the handle and bent the screwdriver to make a prong.

Step 3: Cut Off the Excess

Step 4: Finish It!

The screwdriver was too shiny for my belt, so I heated it up with a blowtorch to remove the shine.

Now it looked almost the same as the buckle.

Next time you need a screwdriver, just take it out from your belt.

If you need a better grip, you can leave it in the belt and use the buckle as the handle.

I could see my brother using that!! :) I have to admit, there have been MANY times when I desparately needed a screwdriver and didn't have one. The only problem is I don't wear belts either... but I liked the inovation!!

Like the idea but I already carry a precision screwdriver with interchangeable tips with me every where

interesting, but why don't you just take a grinder to the tab that's already on there to give it a taper?

The metal was too soft. I guess it could work for some belts.

When I tried to use it to fix a light switch in church, my pants fell down. The vicar wasn't impressed. I don't think many of the funeral congregation were either.

Great idea. I am wondering if the factory belt clip is strong enough itself. Just grind the shape or file it to the flat head?

Depends on the belt. Mine was not strong enough.

Cheers!
