Every single Klein screwdriver or nut-driver that I have owned has twisted or broken within two months of owning, then again I work in a factory producing commercial equipment so I can spend weeks at a time turning screws. Channel Lock makes nice stuff but they have not kept up with there designs for well.... channel lock type pliers. I'm currently using Irwin groovelocks. 6" to 10" Thinking about a set of 12". The craftsman professional line is going away. This is what I was told so it could be wrong info. Their standard line USA made has been re branded industrial with a larger price tag.

I haven't had one break, but the button and the spring are replaceable.

Bahco also makes the best adjustable wrenches with the largest opening jaw for the size of the wrench. You can't find anything better. Snap-on bough bahco up if that tells you anything.
