Screwpop

Screwpop Review

I’ll be honest, when I first saw the Screwpop I was skeptical to say the least.  But after using it for some odd jobs I’m pretty impressed.  The finish isn’t as superior as some might desire, but it’s solid build will last years to come, though it will be sure to get scuffed up.

The screw driver bit includes a philips end, a flat head end and a small ball bearing to keep it locked into place.  While it could be a tad tighter to prevent unwanted fall outs I never had a problem carrying the handy device on my key chain.  The bottle opener section double as a wrench.  While most will be popping cold ones with this part it is nice to have a 1/4″ hex at a hands reach.

So is the Screwpop worth $5?  Hells yes. My cable man agreed, especially when he borrowed it to install an additional outlet in my home.

Pros:

  • Solid build
  • Inexpensive
  • Philips and flat head in one

Cons:

  • Adds weight to key chain
  • Ball bearing on screw driver head could be tighter
  • Easy to lose
