great idea but can't seem to post Answered

no idea how to post this......do you have a Klein 9 way (or more) screwdriver but have lost the tips?......standard 1/4" tips are too short to replace the double ended ones, and even then they do not have the retaining pins that hold them in the tool.....
    simple but brilliant solution......

     acquire a small magnet close (but smaller than) the diameter of one of the too short tips......attach the magnet to the end of the tip and insert it into the tools sleeve.....remove the tip and the magnet is now permanently inside the sleeve....
      now you can use almost any 1/4" tip from your other tool kits (sweet, if you use an odd tip on a regular basis).....and a bonus, the new tip is now slightly magnetic....... 

       not sure where you would acquire the magnets, I scavenged them from a dollar store "magnetic dart board" darts....
