    I've noticed from some of the pics posted around here that the Home Depot Husky brand bit drivers are very popular. I've been carrying them around myself for a while because they work great. However, they have one big problem - the handle only stores 3 0f the 4 bits. This leaves you carrying the drivers around with the 4th bit looking for a place to fall out and get lost.
    Here's the simple solution to that. Reach into the back of the handle with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull out the divider inside; it's only press fit in there. This now gives the handle enough room to store all 4 bits and makes the tools shorter and less likely to poke a hole in something. The bits will rattle around more than they did but that's a small price to pay IMO. Also, if you decide you don't like it you can just slip the divider back in.

    I hope this is helpful to some of you. :)

    I've got a couple of these and that sharp pointy thing in my bag is a pain. Thanks for the tip. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the tip...did that to mine and added a thin circle of card board to stop the rattle...works great.
