When you do enough DIY home improvement projects, there is a likely chance that a right angle drill and driver will be needed in low clearance situations.
Our benchmark right angle driver, the Bosch 12V MAX I-Driver may not serve everyones needs. Instead of investing in a much more expensive right angle drill, which also requires larger storage space, look to these compact right angle adapters as a great accessory for your regular drill or 1/4-inch hex screwdriver. Plus, they’re much smaller than a full-size drill and driver, so you can fit into spaces even those right angle drill and drivers cant.
A few key points to know about the use of these right angle adapters:
- There is no locking mechanism that allows these adapters to be used on their own. The free spinning 1/4″ hex input shaft must be turned by another tool.
- Both hands are required. One hand on the adapter to hold it firmly to the fastener…and the other hand on the drill driver or screwdriver; contrary to what some of the manufacturer images may show with just a single hand.
