The Neiko 03044A is a nice little ratcheting wrench. The low profile makes it good for getting into tight spots.

Excellent tool! I highly recommend this item. Dec 10 2008
By Mike Michaels - Published on

I purchased this about a year ago. It's excellent. Yes, it's small, but that's why I like it. Ever try to use those stupid "L" shaped allen wrenches that are included in the box of every piece of furniture that needs assembling? They don't work, they slip, and you end up banging your knuckles in the hard to reach places they've placed the screws. You can't use a normal allen wrench because the space is too tight.

Well this little tool solves all your problems.

I had to assemble the crib my wife & I bought for our baby. The screws were placed in the tightest places. It was so tight, you couldn't get a normal allen wrench in there....and as I mentioned above, the silly "L" shaped allen wrench wasn't working. I couldn't get the proper leverage to tighten the screw and the thing kept sliding off causing me to bang up my fist pretty good.

I purchased this product and was able to get it into all those tight spaces with easy and it worked like a charm! I've since been forced to use it numerous other times and it's never failed.

It's well built. Very handy. And perfect for assembling anything where the screws are hidden or in a confined space. It's a great addition to my tool box and I can't say enough good things about it. It's been a lifesaver.

great price, exactly what I needed for those tight spots April 18 2010

If you are looking for a short screwdriver for those cramped locations, this is the tool you need. The ratchet is a big plus over the small stubby screwdrivers.

I don't know why some people are complaining about quality. Goodness, this thing only costs $8. Are you using it to build the space shuttle or something?

Failed to Perform When Called Upon Oct. 30 2011
By jd - Published on

This tool is one of those you seek out after fighting a screw with the head facing 1" away from an obstruction. You most likely don't want to go through that again. This is not intended to be an everyday screwdriver.

Given that, it sat in my toolbag for a few weeks before being called upon. And,it failed to perform as expected, so I seemed to have traded one frustration for another. It did get the screw out with some work, but even at it's low cost I was disappointed.

Here's why:
If the obstructed screw is torqued down tightly, at all, you will find that you can't put adequate force on the end of the handle to keep the bit in the screw head. Especially flat head screws. So, you end up having to try and fit your fingers in the cramped space to push on the back side of the bit, as you turn. By time you get this tool, and your fingers in the space you could have fit a stubby screwdriver in the same amount of space with less frustration.

The ratcheting is way to coarse for the application. Fine tooth ratcheting is needed most in close quarters, and since this tool is made for that I expected fine tooth ratcheting.

There are 7 bits included in this tool. Be aware of customer images showing 30 or so.

On the plus side:
I found this to be a useful tool when combined with a set of nut drivers for putting in drills. You can slide most of them into the hole of this tool and make a close-quarters nut driver without the problems mentioned above.

Good value. Similar to Craftsman, but not quite as versatile. March 5 2010
By Dave - Published on
I have used this product and it is fine for limited use. The metal from which the bits are cast seems a little soft and accordingly is likely to wear more quickly. I probably should not include the rest of my opinion in this Amazon review however, Sears has a Craftsmen set which contains 3 ratchets instead of one, and includes 4 different bits that are made of a harder metal, all at a fairly reasonable, but higher price. The big difference is that the Craftsman set, which I have had for a number of years, supplies a straight ratchet that is similar to the ratchet sold herein plus 2 angled ratchets, the heads of which are roughly +35 degrees and -35 degrees from the straight ratchet. This makes for a versatile set of ratchets that can accommodate much more difficult to reach screws. I have used the Craftsman set many times and mentally thank my wife for the foresight of giving me this Christmas stocking present each time I use it because many times I have no tool that is a good alternative. I found that the Craftsman set was so valuable that I bought an extra set for myself, and also gave sets to my son and to my son-in-law.

While there is nothing really wrong with the ratchet set being sold here, and it is a good value for limited use, I would suggest that you check out the Craftsman set first. I have written a number of reviews in which I recommended a product sold by Amazon. However, in this rare instance, I believe their selections do not include sufficient alternatives for their wide range of customers.

Excellent little tool for the money April 1 2011
By Jason - Published on

I purchased this tool so I could install two tweeters in my car's dashboard right up against the windshield. I had about 1.5 inches above the screw for clearance, and couldn't get a regular screw driver in place.

This little tool worked like a charm. It is smaller than I expected, which is good. No one is going to torque down a big screw with something like this, as you just won't get the downward force that you would with regular screwdriver. This tool is designed to work with smaller screws in tight places, and it does that very well.

I hate crappy tools, and this tool is not crappy. For $8, this tool is nicer than I expected, and should last a very long time with periodic use.

The only thing I'll add is that I would look for a nicer tool if I were needing to use it daily in a professional environment (a stereo installer, for example). However, pro's don't typically dig through Amazon looking for a bargain screwdriver that ships via Prime so it can show up in time for a weekend project. For that reason, I don't hesitate to give this screwdriver 5 stars.
