Introduction: Leatherman Sidekick Driver Bit Mod

About: nice to meet you

The leatherman sidekick what a excellent edc muti tool.
If come with a changeable screw driver bit, like the wave it would be perfect 

Step 1: The Tool

What you will need :

A small file the same thickness with the sidekick's flat head screwdriver , about 2 mm thick
A  regular 1/4" bit adapter with a square end  
It will be easier if you got a vise , in this case I did it  free hand 

Step 2: File to Fit the Adapter

The squire side of a regular 1/4" bit adapter, should almost fit in to the  flat head screw driver
File a notch in the conner of  the square side to accept the driver, file slow and keep square, don't file too much keep checking the progress  

Step 3: Try It Out

Finished product

I am planing to insert a strong magnet in the bit holder , to keep the bit stick with the leatherman
