Keep your drivers in good working condition by using them only as designed.

Avoid using screwdrivers as improvised pry tools or chisels.

Prying with a screwdriver can bend or break the tip, making it useless for turning screws.

Chiseling with a driver can deform the tip. A damaged driver like this one no longer fits snugly in the screw head, resulting in slippage (and stripped screws).

To avoid stripping screws, only use drivers that are in good condition.
