The idea behind Bit Bar is simple. Having a durable screwdriver and entire bit set in your pocket or carry it with you on your keychain every single day.
Yes, such a product is the BIG IDEA DESIGN Bit Bar. A pocket-friendly screwdriver with a full-sized handle and holder for 8 1/4″ black oxide hex bits. And the whole tool is really small. It is like having a pocket knife with you.
What’s more, the Bit Bar is made from solid Grade 5 titanium alloy (stonewashed or battle-worn Black DLC) or ultralight fiberglass reinforced nylon and is TSA-complained, so you can carry it with you into the airplane.
And in the box, you will also get an extension to make it easier to get into tight spaces.
“To get at the bits inside, simply push on the exposed bar and the bits will protrude out of the opposite end. Each is held firmly in place by a magnet, so they will stay put while in your pocket.” (source: BIG IDEA DESIGN)

If you like the idea of having such a tool in your pocket, you should be ready to pay the little higher (premium) price. Yes, the Bit Bar is a fantastic and durable product, with a lot of potentials, but it is usually priced around 100+ USD. So the question is, is it worth the higher price? It comes with a lifetime warranty, so if it is not a marketing hoax, then it should be definitely worth it.
