Socket-Screw Key

Socket screws (Bristol, Allen, etc.) are easily started and run down or removed with a small finger-held tool which minimizes operator fatigue by using finger motions rather than wrist motions. It also reduces the time required to install a socket screw.

A metal key l, dipped in liquid plastic, securely engages a socket 2 while providing a nonabrasive, nonslip handle 3 for an operator's fingers. The handle may also be molded from any material with a soft and rough surface. If desired, printing 4 may be put on the handle. The key may also be magnetized to hold the screw on the tool.
