    So boring it's not even worth a pic

    Bought specifically to keep in the kitchen drawer to tighten pan handles
    Pragmatic though.

    However, have you thought of using some thread lock instead?

    I buy mine from here http://www.rowland-tools.co.uk/bondhus/

    The tools are made with Protanium® steel which is heat treated for more torque and longer tool life.
    All Bondhus tools come with a lifetime guarantee. If they break or fail to meet your expectations in any way, we’ll replace them.
    Protanium sounds like some shit that they just made up but I use mostly small 2.5mm and under hex keys in a cordless driver and the tips
    have kept their edges nice and sharp with regular use for just over a year now.
