the Belt Screwdriver




Introduction: the Belt Screwdriver

Innovative Projects, Diy's, Life Hacks

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.

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.

    Great idea!

    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!!

    I bought a set that attaches to my keyring with a flat & phillips. I find it comes in handy

    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.


    Yeah... me too!

    I'd pull out my Leatherman.

    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.

    Useful, these little things can just make a big difference!!

    Blowtorch underwear? Just do not take this to the airport with you.

    Just don't wear that one after eating beans.


    As always, another great idea!!!!!

    That's a good idea, "The Hidden Screwdriver Belt" :)

    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?
