New Angled Bit Driver - When you don't have an right angle drill/driver
Use in a drill or hand driver in tight or restricted areas, great for use on the under-trays.
It is recommended to loosen tight fitting bolts first, by hand, with a wrench.
Converts angle to 62 degrees from driver axis
1/4" dia. hex drive fits any drill chuck & accepts any 1/4" hex bits
Use a hex to square adapter (not supplied) to use sockets
5" long with removable handle
$19.95 inc. shipping (approx. $30 under the Milwaukee brand)
PM me for payment details.
Cheers,
Michael

I just removed my under tray today for an oil change and used a similar type of tool. The one I have (had) is a cheap Chinese made piece of junk but it was working well until I tried to undo one of the two 13mm bolts without first loosening them by hand. Bad idea. It stripped the internal gears in the tool. The bolts weren't that tight either. So a word of advice. While I cannot speak on the quality of this particular tool, generally when using this type of tool on larger bolts, I suggest loosening them by hand a bit first.
That said, these are a great for taking off the under tray. No need to even jack up the car. You can take the tray off in five minutes or less.

That is a great bit of advice, I have had no problem, but hypothetically if a bolt is in really tight it could happen, I don't know. Mind if I reference it?

received mine yesterday. Looks good, thanks for fast delivery.

I need an excuse to take the under tray off. Hmm....I guess it's about time for an oil change.

Just received a new batch for sale. I discovered that in addition to being used for the undertrays it can also be used for the dash top mounted speakers or any other tight places, car or home.

I can't follow directions

I finally got around to my oil change, and I absolutey love this thing for removing the under tray. No Jacks or ramps required. However...

I ended up stripping the gears of the tool because I can't follow directions. Please, make sure that you <strong><u>loosen undertray bolts first</strong></u> with a wrench. This is noted in TheViper's first post....

:thwack: to me.

Thank you to TheViper for handling the situation with top-notch customer service, :clap: even for a boneheaded operator error like this one.
