Review: Channellock ratcheting 13 ‘N 1 multi-screwdriver



Channellock 13n1 ratcheting screwdriver

The CHANNELLOCK® 13 ‘N 1 ratcheting all-in-one screwdriver caught my attention while wandering the isles of a local tool supply store, and I thought “what a brilliant multi-bit driver”, and the purchase was made!

An interesting – yet welcomed fact when doing research for this article – I came to realize that MEGAPRO makes the driver for CHANNELLOCK.

Between my positive experience with the MEGAPRO made 13-in-1 screwdriver and seeing the many other great screwdrivers available; MEGAPRO will remain at the top of my list when in need of a screwdriver, and I highly recommend them to anyone.

No longer carry a handful of drivers – choose the screwdriver for your needs that has all the popular bits in one unit.

What makes this a great ratcheting screwdriver?

Fit the CHANNELLOCK 13n1 Ratcheting Screwdriver in a tool bag or drawer and you’ll always have a very capable tool when you need to remove or insert a screw.

6 double-sided tips and the 1/4″ hex shaft make up the standard 13 ‘N 1 drive options

The ratcheting action makes quick work and requires less effort compared to a standard screwdriver.

For replacement bits and/or buying different bits to fit other screw head types, use the MEGAPRO OEM ¼-inch bits, as shown, with a pressure fitted locking ball to secure the bit.
