Ok, so stubby ratchets that accept 1/4 inch hex base bits are useful for hard to reach spots (door handles etc.). I knew that! When I ordered, I was wondering why buy this one particularly costing twice as much as other alternatives? Verdict:
THE GOOD
1) All metal, seems very sturdy and well made
2) Really tiny (110mm long, 16mm wide at top, 7mm thick) Alternatives are 25mm thick (tall) and above...
3) Includes "stubby" bits. While ordinary 1/4 inch hex bits are 25mm long (and can also be inserted in the tool if needed) these are 18mm long so they reduce the total working height even more. An ordinary 1/4inch ratchet plus adaptor plus bit that I have is 55mm tall.
4) Bits held in place very firmly (although it's not magnetic).
5) holder end pushes bits on the back to remove them from tool (clever).
THE BAD
1) includes 5 stubby bits, but holder holds 4 !!! so one must always be on the tool or will get lost
2) Red Plastic Left/right ratchet switch and red head cover, are...well... PLASTIC. Why ? Will they last? I don't know.
3) No soft rubber grip at the back, but I would not use this for high torques anyhow so no big problem. Expect to use 3 fingers maximum when pulling as it is very very small!
OVERALL: Good, mainly because these stubby ratchets are supposed to be used once a year when you can't reach a spot, and this is even shorter than alternatives, so it will definately fit everywhere...

I purchased this item in order to fit some wall lights. In the end, even this little screwdriver couldn't get into the confined space I was having to work with.

However, the tool itself is reassuringly heavy, and feels good in the hand. Despite other reviewers commenting on "plastic parts" my opinion is those areas don't take a lot of stress, so can be made of a softer material.

I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I'm sure it will prove very useful in the fulness of time.

I have submitted a couple of photos with this review.

I bought this item specifically because I have a hard-to-reach pipe isolation value, with only about 25mm clearance above the isolation screw. Consequently I needed a low profile and, ideally, ratchetable device. This item looked like it was just the ticket. Having now received this, I am not disappointed. A very nicely engineered metal tool that feels like it will last for years. I would highly recommend it to anyone and think that it would make a great addition to a toolset (you can never have enough specialised tools in my opinion ;-)).

From a functional point of view, I had two screws that I needed to undo, but just couldn't get to. The free room above the screw heads was slightly less than the length of a normal replaceable screwdriver bit - before you even think about putting anything on it to turn it. I had tried everything short of either being committed to an insane asylum or moving house to one which didn't have any difficult-to-get-to screws. Within minutes of trying this tool, that became a historical problem. I could have taken it out for a nice meal and kissed it.
Perhaps I am well disposed towards it, but from a 'tool' point of view, you can tell when a tool is really nicely engineered - and this one is. It is mostly made of metal apart from the red bits in the photo ( which are a reasonable plastic ), feels solid and not at all flimsy.
It needs about 20mm of clearance to get to the screw and probably a bit more than that laterally in order to use the ratchet action. As in the photograph, it comes with four different low profile bits plus a second Philips size 2 already in the driver, and you could swap these for normal bits if these are too low profile for requirements or if you needed a different type of bit.
All in all I would recommend - and I am sure that I will be actively looking for more difficult-to-get-to screws to give me an excuse to use it again. Now where did I put the phone number for the asylum?

Brilliant little screwdriver that gets into really tight spots. Received it today and it was immediately put to use dismantling my shower. Although it comes with stubby bits standard size bits can also be used. I would recommend this screwdriver

Bought this in the hope of coping with a most difficult set of screws on a curtain pole. Considered several cheaper right angled screwdrivers but purchased this one because it was advertised as having a 'super low profile'. Good decision. Despite having to attend to the difficult screws mainly by feel, this little screwdriver performed superbly. The screwdriver may only be used infrequently in the future but how reassuring to know it is in the toolbox.

This is perfect for use in the smallest of gaps. In particular, the smaller than standard length driver bits supplied with the tool made all the difference when using it to remove some very difficult to reach uPVC window screws. You may not use this tool very often, but when you do, none of the other similar tools I researched could fit into such a tight space as this one. It seems well made for purpose and is priced reasonably.
