Should the screwdriver handle be magnetic?

Just bought the new iFixit tool kit and the bits won't stay in the handle, I feel like it should be magnetic. Or am I just being really dumb and not working out how it should be.

Yes it should be. But there are several different handles. Here's a post I put on the Meta site, take as look and tell us which one it is and if you have a piece missing:

It's the one dead centre, black with a blue top.


The Core 64 Bit Driver

Tough aluminum handle with ergonomic grip and aggressive texture makes sure you can turn any screw.

Magnetic bit holder transmits magnetism through the screwdriver bit, helping you handle all those tiny screws.

Super smooth swivel cap keeps you turning and turning and turning.
