Are You Using the Right Screwdriver for Your Electrical Repair?

If you're a DIY geek and would love to have certain tools in your home to allow you to carry out certain quick fixes, including electrical repair in the home, then you'll need to know your tools. However, when you go to a hardware store, the first thing you may notice is that there are lots of different screwdrivers and this might be confusing. And if you're like most people and only use one or two tools regularly, it can be difficult to know which tool is right for the job.

The handyman in this video clearly explains the importance of knowing your screwdrivers when carrying out an electrical repair.

Ratcheting screwdrivers are great for quick fixes, like tightening or loosening a screw in a cabinet door. They can also be used for larger jobs such as installing a ceiling fan or other household items that need to be installed quickly. Phillips Head Screwdrivers, however, have a flat tip on one side of the head which helps them fit into tight spaces where rounder tips might not work as well (like in hard-to-reach places).

The flat-head screwdrivers, on the other hand, have one long shaft instead of two shorter ones like those found on Phillips's heads; this means fewer parts moving around inside your toolbox during use, which means less chance of wear over time (and maybe even less time spent looking for replacement bits when you need them).

It's important to remember that you can help ensure your safety and the safety of others by using the right tools for each job. It may be tempting to save money by using a less expensive tool or just using one screwdriver for all, but you could end up paying for it in the long run if something goes wrong—and that could be costly.
