Demon Gadget Tool DS2117
 
Not sure if it's just me but this tool is very hard to use. The different bits are hard to pull out of there small holding place in the handle and then once you get the bit into the end of the ratchet it is hard to remove after use. And the compass does not work, it will tell me that North is a different direction depending on which I'm standing, but I know, that if the north is to my right and I rotate clockwise then north should be right, front, left, back ... not this thing ... it just goes all random. Weird, but not sure if I got a bad one or not, so let me know if any of you have had any luck with it. I bought this for the ratchet mainly, the other stuff is just extras, I had a small Burton tool but no ratchet, and it was a pain.

Was in the market for a new tool glad you posted this. No chance of returning your purchase ? Are the bits magnetic or more of a press fit making them difficult to remove ?

You have to press fit them, and you have to press really hard, then you have to work them out pretty hard. I've had it in my lap just playing with it for a while now and things are loosening up a bit, that might just be a part of it, using it a few times to get it broken in. Either way though, I'm still a bit disappointed, the compass does not work, and my fingers are sore as $h1t ... Not sure if I can take it back or not, got it at Sports Authority.
