    I used to use a Slide Driver made by Sensible Products. The stubby version came with a 1/4" hex shank, perfect for an impact driver. Well, my knucklehead partner lost all of them, Klein Tools has since picked up the patent and doesn't offer the hex shank, now I use the Malco. I first saw it online, purchased a few (for him to lose), now I see them on every parts house counter. I like the convenience of being able to easily clean off the magnet. And yes, only a few times was the 1/4" difficult in tight spots.

    got it in the mail today ....

    I can see how the 1/4" part may be tight in some instances, sure I will get a better idea once I start using it

    thanks for the feedback

    My favorite tool. I wish they would make one in 3/8 and 7/16. Only thinking hat sucks is having to get new ones because mine keep disapearing.

    Ditto on what everyone else said. Great product. Especially being able to pick out the metal bits. Lost my first one aleady and on to the 2nd.

    I have several on my service trucks. Saves time for sure. Lost a few magnets but you play hard that's going to happen.

    I like them. I'd love to see a 5/16-3/8 combo for commercial, I can't remember the last time I saw a 1/4".

    I’d love to see a 5/16 and 3/8 combo also. I almost never use the 1/4” side. The feature that makes it so great though, is the ease of cleaning the magnet.

    I’ve heard...the magnets are a little fragile and break.
