Megapro Screwdriver Comparison Guide

Megapro Screwdriver Comparison Guide

Megapro® Drivers are an innovative, high-quality line of screwdrivers that feature a clever built-in storage system. Every driver comes with a set of bits that are actually stored inside the driver’s handle so that you’ll never have to lose another bit! The variety of bits supplied allows you to save space in your toolbox by essentially combining several driver types into one. And these drivers are built to last! Equiparts carries a variety of Megapro® Drivers for both general and specialty use.

There are several features that all Megapro® Drivers have in common. The shaft of each driver can be used as a 1/4″ Hex Nut Driver. They also all have a patented Palm Saver Cap™, which does not turn as the users turns the driver. Another feature these drivers (except the Ratcheting Driver) share is the patented EZ Guide Collar™, which provides the user with better control and maintains consistent contact between the driver bit and the screw. This allows the screw to be driven with much more ease. The drivers each have a retractable bit cartridge located at the top of the driver. This allows for easy storage and organization of bits, making any job that much easier.

MegaproDisplay1Megapro Information

Megapro officially started in 1994, driven by inventor Hermann Fruhm’s concept of creating a better storage solution for screwdriver bits by placing them inside the driver handle. This was an innovative idea, and would help solve the problem of missing bits while on the job. After numerous prototypes and sketches, the first Megapro screwdriver was created in the early 1990s. Its patented features quickly gained market success, and many users saw and appreciated the quality of the screwdriver as well as how easy it was to use. There are over twenty different variations of the screwdriver, each one designed specifically for a different type of job. Today, Megapro continues to grow domestically, and their international reach is also expanding.

This Hinge Doctor kit includes sizes for both residential and commercial doors, so you’ll be ready to tackle almost any door. Repairs with the Hinge Doctor are quick and easy, allowing you to fix sagging doors in just fifteen seconds!
