You might try and login to website and look at an owners manual for hints on how to adjust this tool. Make sure that you have the model number to type into the site search engine.
Or give me the model and I will see what I can come up with.

Bathroom cabinet pull knob is stuck. Slot in screw is stripped out. Have put all new knobs on cabinets and drawers, this is the ONLY one that can't gt off !

Hello, annemoss, W/D here.

There is a product that is sold for stripped out screw heads. It has a grit in it, and you place a drop of it on the screwdriver before you put it into the stripped slot. The grit fills the strripped void and allows the screwdriver to get a good bite. The brand I have used is called "Screw Doctor", but there are others. The large "box" hardwares will have this type product, as will Sears.
Another alternative is to drill the screw head through to the shaft of the screw from the back side. Use your old screws that you have already taken out to determine the proper drill bit size. The aim with this method is to remove the screw without making the screw hole too much larger.

Best regards, --W/D--

On car keys cant get screws out to replace battery

Try getting a 'jewelers' set of screwdrivers, or screwdrivers that are used for watches and eyeglasses. They're not expensive.

If the screwheads are damaged, then you might try to drill them out with a small bit.

Unfortunately a lot of modern key fobs are made this way.

The bit in my Stanley ratchet screwdriver does not lock into place, falls out when screwdriver is pointing down

There is a small springs steel wire that fits into the chuck. the bit slides into the chuck and then into the spring and the spring holds the bit inside the chuck. This ring seems to be missing. Thus the bit falls out. You might try going to a hardware store and they make a device that is two magnets held together with a rubber band. When they are together there is a small hole in the center. You can slide any screwdriver or bit into the hole in the center and it magnetizes the bit or driver. Magnetizing your bits should keep them from falling out of the ratchet screwdriver.

just replace the screws with a slightly larger thread

this will give you an idea of what is available (which you should be able to purchase at any hardware store)

Disc Brake replacement

You need an impact screwdriver. You should be able to pick up a cheap one from your local parts store. You hit the impact screwdriver with a hammer and it forces the screwdriver bit to turn. But make sure you are using the correct size bit, or youll strip the screws and itll be a pain to get them out.
