This Tool Rocks (Swift Driver by Master Mechanic)

Remember those window treatments I blogged about the other day?

Well, part of our 2012 DIY Blog Squad duties involved trying out a new tool from True Value, and since we used it to put those window blinds up, I thought this would be a good time to blog about it. It’s called the Swift Driver, and it’s made by Master Mechanic…

We recorded a little video to show how much easier it made the un-fun task of hanging blinds…

Pretty handy dandy, eh?

To be honest, when we first got it, we were sort of thinking it was just going to be one more unused tool in our already jam-packed, mess of a tool room. But we’ve used it several times since the day we hung the blinds, and we’re thinking we can probably just get rid of the 8 million regular screwdrivers we have laying around because this thing works so much better than they do.

Which gives me an idea. (Literally just hit my brain as I am typing this.)

Kev! Let’s give away a couple of Swift Drivers! (I just yelled that to him from my desk.)

(He just responded, “Okay!”)

So- if you’d like to enter for a chance to win one, just leave us a comment on this post (if you’re reading this in an email, you’ll have to click over to our blog to leave a comment) between now and Monday, July 16th (9am CST) and we’ll randomly select a couple of winners sometime after that. Good luck!

  2. Luke Williamson says

    What an awesome tool. This would be such a huge help for all my projects!!

  3. Sherry@Ties2ThePast says

    I’d love to win one!
    My husband has a bunch of screwdrivers but this would be MINE…ALL MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. LindaSonia says

    Who couldn’t use a tool that ‘ROCKS’??? I sure could… count me in!

  5. Marissa says

    So perfect!! We just signed a contract on a new house TODAY!! My husband and I have been teachers in Mexico for the last few years and haven’t had a home of our own for 8 years now!! I’m so excited to paint and put up curtain rods and do all of those amazing things that we haven’t been able to do! The nifty little swift driver would be perfect (especially since buying a new house means we won’t have much money left for tools!)…thanks for the great giveaway!

  6. Jenni says

    sign me up!! I hate using a regular screwdriver and my drill has too much oomph!

  7. Brenda says

    Would love to win this tool. My husband is a handy man would love a new tool.

  8. Kelly E. says

    I’d love to win one of these. It looks like it’s so handy – and more of an “all in one” type screwdriver. It would really clean-up the old tool box as it is right now, that’s for sure! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  9. Christine says

    Well first off- that tool is totally awesome!!! Second my husband is a carpenter and I have yet to come across a screwdriver when I need one!!!!! I am the one that does all the little jobs around the house and he hoards all the tools!! I really need one of those!!! lol :)

  10. Anne says

    Love how your room Is coming together!! I am slightly obsessed with board covered walls and some day it will happen in my house!! Oh and I would love to win one of those awesome screwdrivers!!

  11. Amber R says

    I would love to win one of these, they seem like they’d be a dream with Ikea furniture.

  12. michelle says

    Ummmm, yeah would LOVe to win one of these baby’s!! Since I am the primary handyman’ in this house~I could totally use that!!! Plus I love to win things~who doesn’t!! ;)

  13. Stephanie says

    I think I like it too!! No more smashed knuckles and faces in hard to reach places…

  14. Sheila Longeway says

    I would love, and could truly use, the Swift Driver! My son moved out last summer and in my love for him, I handed him my tool bag, and pretty much all my tools!! He thought it was generous, I’m now seeing it was a mistake! I miss my tools!

  15. Janene says

    I’d love to add that to my collection of screwdrivers (that I can never find). Does it come in pink? I’m only half-kidding on that – my boys won’t touch my pink tools. I’m not a fan of the color myself, but it works well for me when I need a tool. :)

  16. Dawn L. says

    Love your blog, and that tool looks great! I’ve been doing a lot of little “spruce ups” around my place and a tool like that looks like it would be really useful!

  17. Katia Sergio says

    Just Love this tool. I gave my husband a hard time every time I want to move or screw something. Please add me in your list to win this awesome tool,

    Katia

  18. Laura says

    I bet if you pick my name, my husband would want to look at your blog on a regular basis. Or more regularly than me saying, “Hey honey, you should see what Kevin and Layla made!”

  19. lynn johnson says

    I just lost my ratchet driver I have had for years. This looks like more than a suitable replacement!

  20. Donna Doble Brown says

    Hey Layla . . .anytime I get to watch you or Kev with a helpful ‘how-to’ video it’s a good day for me! You guys make me smile . . . Miss seeing pic’s of kit-cat . . . .I adopted my own (1rst tuxedo) new Kitty two months ago after loosing our 13 year old Jasper . . . Been a lot of laughs! This one has a totally different personality!
    Hope you all are well! Been keeping my eyes open on HGTV for you guys! :)

  21. Jennifer says

    What a great idea! We have the traditional ratchet screw driver, which I love, but this thing is amazing!!! I am building cornices right now, and this would be really handy when it is time to install them. :)

  22. Tyra Norton says

    OMG I would soooo love one! I’m moving next month and that would make life so much much easier not to have to drag around numerous screwdrivers to get the place ready :) Thanks for the opportunity!

  23. says

    I have been drooling over this tool–it looks like it would really help with furniture assembly! Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. Amy says

    I am not sure it would work well enough. Would it get my hubby to actually do some of the things on our list? hmm…

  25. stephanie phillips says

    Would love to win one these to use in my many projects I have started!
    Thanks Layla & Kevin!

  26. Cait says

    Those look so cool! I’ll bet my husband would love one! Love the blog, ya’ll!

  27. Lisa K. says

    That angle thing on the screwdriver is very cool. I enjoy the how to vids you guys do. Very helpful!

    Lisa

  28. Vickie H. says

    This is SUCH a great little tool! Would LOVE to win one! so please count me IN!!! Thank you for hosting!!!

  29. O'Dina says

    Nifty! I’d love to win one, but I’ll probably buy one for me and one for my guy anyway :) Thanks for the heads up.

  30. Sara white says

    I love the ratcheting action of this tool! I have several projects I’d love to use it on. Fingers crossed :)

  31. says

    I’d love to be included in the drawing. Since finding photos from The Lettered Cottege on Pinterest, I’ve been inspired by the crisp, fresh white cottage-y look to try to tackle some room re-do’s. My hubby isn’t quite on the same page as me as far as all this paint & decor that I have planned ~ but he loves him some power tools, so if I won this for him, I think he’d be inspired to help me. :)

  32. says

    I could totally use one of those!! Got lots of goodies to hang in my freshly painted dining room and a guest room revamp on the horizon. :) Thanks for the giveaway, Layla!
    xo Heidi

  33. says

    Hot dang! I like it! Seriously will need to look into that. I hate those angles when you just can’t quite get in there. Often that’s the time I have to usher the little one out of the room so the “noise” coming from hubby doesn’t get picked up by the “repeater”. :)

    This would give me a good excuse to get the Mr. finishing so many projects that are at a standstill around here. :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  34. says

    dang..I’d love to have one of those gadgets..
    instead of my DIY girlie toolset (A high heeled shoe and a butter knife)
    seriously.. i need a reliable GOOD screwdriver!!
    make me the WINNER!
    hugs..
    Loui♥

  35. Diedra says

    I would LOVE one of these….my son and I were just talking about one almost like this that my Dad had in the 60’s….everything old is new again!!!!

  36. says

    OH MY GOSH!! I didn’t even know something like that existed. I’ve hung curtains and blinds several times over the past two days. And I NEED that tool. I’d love to win one! I’ve got much more curtain and blind hanging to do. :) Thank you!!

  37. Sheri says

    I’d love to have one of these. I have bought ratcheting screwdrivers in the past, but they always break. I have way too many screwdrivers and screwdriver tips. It would be nice to get rid of them.

  38. jenna says

    Love this….my drill battery never seems to be charged. This would be much easier for when you don’t need a lot of heft. Pick me!!

  39. says

    My Hubby just today was putting up a shelf for me with an awkward hard to get at angle and this tool would have been perfect for him. We would love one! True Value rocks!

  40. Danielle B. says

    I would love to get rid of the 342 screw drivers in our tool closet! We just bought and moved into a 1928 est. beach cottage. It has a Model T garage! :) I could hang some curtains and blinds…

  41. Lisa Porter says

    Well isn’t that the coolest thing! Really – the turning either way to put a screw in or take it out has got to be easier on the old wrist. The angle thingy really hung in there when he was cranking down on that screw too!
    I’ve got 4 of those exact blinds left to hang so I know ALLL about those brackets.
    Thank you Kevin for another great demo and thank you Layla for thinking about us….pssst….he is the cutest fellow…but you already know that. ;)
    One more thing….do y’all have a new button that I need to replace over at TLPC?
    xo Lisa

  42. Linda B says

    I could sure use that tool. Nice for a couple of screws instead of getting out the drill, which doesn’t always fit anyways.

  43. Tracy says

    Oh, This looks so swell, I could cross lots of things off my ‘to do’ list!

  44. Julia says

    I want it! I have a screw driver that was my Dad’s 20 years ago!! I need some new stuff!!

  45. Rochelle Pernick says

    Just love this tool, I am starting my own tool box from my husband’s and this will be so handy instead of having to have someone else help. Great idea

  46. A. Marie says

    What a neat tool. I’ve been working on my little cottage for several years and know how tricky those odd angles are to reach. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the drawing. :-)

  47. says

    Oh what a neat tool!! I am always the one usually to hang blinds, curtains, etc.. as it’s not my husband’s favorite thing to do. I’d love to use this to help make the job a lot easier for me!!

  48. Renee says

    What a great idea! If you don’t pick my name, how about if you bring yours and hang my blinds someday??? I could show you all the lovely things about Omaha, NE!

  49. Sue says

    I love it! I would love to have this neat little tool. By the way, I love your blog and the inspiration it gives to me.

  50. Donna Garcia says

    That is one awesome tool! I would get so much use out of that!!! Thanks for sharing!

  51. Kristel says

    Ooh, I would love one! Or rather, my hubby would. :) He’s become quite the handyman in the past year, doing everything from making furniture to restoring parts of our 100+ year old home. I know we’d find it useful!

  52. Jeannie says

    Your blog is very inspiring! I will be purchasing my first home sometime this fall/winter and could really use little tool!

  53. says

    I’d love to win one of those! If there’s one thing we’ve learned DIY’ing is to just bite the bullet and buy tools!

  54. Carrie O says

    I’d love one of these handy tools to hang some blinds I need to purchase!

  55. Maggie says

    Looks like a cool tool. My husband loves new tools and I love it when he uses them. Thank you for this opportunity to win.

  56. says

    Pick me!! Pick me!! I have some half hung window treatments because I got tired of using a regular screw driver & don’t have a great too like this or any other tools for that matter. :) I definitely need to add to my collection!!

  57. Jenn A says

    That is definitely a handy dandy tool! I think I’d toss out my other ones if I had one of those! Great giveaway!

  58. Kristi says

    I think that looks amazing! And I happen to have a handy person with a birthday coming up…

  59. says

    I would love to win one!! Getting ready to set up my up my kindergarten classroom for the new year! Need one of these to help me build a new jungle reading hut!! :)

  60. Donna says

  62. Chelsie says

    Man! I could have used one of those just today! We’re renovating our recently our new home and boy-howdy that would be a handy tool to have!

  67. says

    I need one! We are hanging new curtains soon due to an unwelcome new street light. Thanks Kev and Layla!

  68. Orghlaith says

    That looks like the kind of tool my husband would drool over. I drool over your designs. Hmmm. That makes for a lot of drooling.

  69. Michele Arnold says

    This looks like a great little tool! I looked at my husband as I was watching the video and told him I wanted one lol. Love your Blog!

  70. Liz VanKirk says

    I would absolutely love one of those handy screwdrivers! Could think of a lot of projects I could use it on!

    Liz

    Creative Hugs,

  74. Stacy says

    I so need this…the battery to my dewalt drill just lost its abilty to charge. I hope I win!

  75. Kaitlin L says

    My gadget-loving husband would think this was the coolest (and, maybe, just maybe, it would inspire him to purge some of his other gadgets!!)

  76. bdaiss says

    What a great way to start the weekend! Have we told you guys you rock? Cuz you do! Thanks for the constant inspiration and the chance!

  77. Sarita says

  79. LisaT says

    Hi! Wow! We do need one more tool in our tool box! Would so love one of these! Thanks guys!

  80. says

    How cool! We’re moving in two weeks and this would be an awesome little gadget for all the projects coming up soon.

  81. Shellaine says

    That looks pretty awesome! I’ve skinned a lot of knuckles trying to turn screw drivers in those tight spaces.

  82. Ruth says

    Ooh, my husband loves tools of all kinds and since I’m all the time getting him to “fix” things or “help me out” this would be perfect. Love, love, love your blog!

  83. JulieD says

    Fabulous! I’ve just begun my home improvement projects and don’t have many nifty tools. This would be great. :D

  84. Stephanie Henson says

    I could SO use this because my husband keeps stealing all of my screwdrivers from my tool kit!

  85. says

    My husband would love this! With both the blinds and the curtain rods we have there are screws only half way in due to being at a hard angle.

  86. Robin says

    Just purchased a small cottage in MI. Have to replace all window treatments – looks like it won’t take up too much space in my suitcase.

  87. Päivi Repo says

    Hi form Finland,
    That tool would be absolutely great for my husband, who always has to take his wife’s wishes;)

  88. Monica says

  92. Terry says

    By the way, I’ve enjoyed all your posts this week, and love watching your home office/guest room evolve!

  93. Nicole says

    The goose neck attachment looks really amazing. I’m thinking about all those times I’ve have to resort to gymnastics to get a weird screw in….this would have been a lot easier!

  94. ellen says

    Just moved into a house with 27 windows!.. Need blinds asap and maybe this would make the task more bearable! Thanks

  95. Paula says

    This tool looks like it could make some projects less stressful. I like the gooseneck feature. Thanks for a great blog!

  96. Angela says

    Looks neat! Have a great weekend! Happy screwing… :) (sorry-that was just too easy)

  97. says

    This would be a great tool for my Husband. He just turned 64 and is not as agile as he once was and this would be so much easier for him to use, while not having to strain his back or shoulders in those tight areas’

  98. Judy says

    Yes! I have such a hard time getting into tight places with tools. This looks great.

  99. Ashlee says

    I would LOVE one of these. I just bought my first house and this would help (my wrist fatigue!) with all of my little projects.

  100. Heidi Patrick says

    Love this tool! I just bought my first home and have been doing a lot of repairs and do it yourself projects, so this would come in very handy! Thanks for all your helpful hints on your blog:) You’ve inspired me to create my own cottage home.

  101. says

    great tool. this would make my life easier since my husband hates hanging blinds and curtains. i need one of these!

  102. Leslie says

    Hi, this looks like a wonderful tool and I would love to try it out on some projects!

  103. Becki Foster says

    My husband can always use anything that makes his “honey-do” jobs easier!

  104. Maria says

    Hey Layla and Kevin,
    This would totally be an awesome tool to have in stash. Probably like most, I have all size of screwdrivers an it can get a bit frustrating when needing to screw something in and its either at a wierd angle (like above) or because of the over abundance of tools I DONT need, its just hard to find. So this would totally be cool!!!

    Thanks to you both for this great giveaway but more importantly…for bringing inspiration to my life EVERY day!!!! :)

  105. says

    I would love to win this for my husband. He just retired and I have a huge honey do list for him. Maybe this will sweeten him up :)

  106. James says

    Looks like an awesome tool. I can already think of things I’d use it for. Well, that means EVERYTHING, of course.

  107. Melanie says

    That thing is so cool! Would be very handy to hang up all our new window treatments when we move soon. :)

  108. Lynne Carothers says

    Oh yes! I could do this! I really could use this tool to accomplish so many of my DIY tasks around here. Yep, would sure love it.

  109. Nancy says

    My daughter and brand new husband just purchased their first (fixer upper, of course) house so this would be a great help in getting them started!

  110. Jennifer says

    Yes, yes, yes! Would LOVE to have one of these…what a great little tool! Thanks for taking the time to show it to us!

  111. Jan Hitchcock says

    Sure, I’d like to be considered for that tool giveaway. The women in my family have had to hide their tools in the lingerie drawer to keep the men from misplacing them. Since my son moved out my tools have majorly diminished. By the way, love what you did with Kevin’s Moms back porch.

  112. Marie says

    I would LOVE to be able to throw all of our random screwdrivers away! This looks awesome.

  113. Cindi P. says

    I have been following your blog for almost a year now! Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration! (and the chance to win!)

  114. melissa hoffman says

    We are new to the DIY world, but we are loving every minute. It’s always helpful to have the right tools to make the job easier! Thanks!

  115. ERIKA says

    Neat screwdriver1 I have chairs I’ve needed recovered forever but the screws are to tricky….maybe this tool would do it!

  116. LJ May says

    My husband would love to add that to his tool collection, and it might just be something that I could use myself. Thanks for the chance to win!

  117. KK says

    I’d love to add this to my own stash of tools. I’ve grown tired of riffling thru my husband’s disorganized toolbox & have resorted to having a separate toolbox all my own. It’s bare bones minimum. I think this multipurpose item would fit right in—if not completely complete it!

  118. Charlotte says

    I would love to win one of these! Also, love your blog and always enjoy reading it!
    Xo,
    Charlotte

  119. kimberly derusha says

    I would love one of these tools to install the exact blinds in my farmhouse that used to be a barn. Thanks for the tip!

  120. Anne says

    Maybe my husband will be more understanding of the time I spend reading blogs if I win this nifty tool for him! By the way, can you tell me where you got the curtain rod in your photo? I’m heading to Home Depot today to look at their blinds — yours looks very nice.

  121. Peggyann Huffman says

    Perfect! Would be so very pleased to have this tool to make so many repairs easier around my house.

  122. Shirley says

    Wow! Now this is a handy-dandy one to add to my stash of tools that I keep inside so that I can grab quick. I have a feeling that this could be the “go to” screwdriver for everything!! Thanks for a chance for a great give-away!!

  123. Ursula says

    Thanks for the chance to win this! What a perfect tool for my hub who has inherited a lot of projects since marrying me.

  124. Kathy says

    Oh man, i’d love to win one of these babies! Trying to do more diy projects myself as my hubby is so busy working. This tool would be a great 1st addition to my HERS toolbox:)

    PS – I just LOVE you guys, always look forward to your blog updates – keep em comin’!!

  125. Sonia Morton says

    Just moved into our new home and have oh so many blinds and rods to hand. Loks like this tool would make like so much better for the uh bs! Love your blog!

  126. Jan says

    Would love to try this tool out….dining room blinds still laying on the kitchen counter – will have to hire a handy man to install as my drill just isn’t cuttin’ it. Not in the budget just yet…this might do the trick though. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  127. tracyo says

    It looks VERY interesting and I know we could give one of those a good workout around our house! Thanks for the opportunity to win one Layla & Kevin!

  128. paige connelly says

    Love your blog….your kind heart shows through in every post. Thanks for sharing with us.
    Looks like the Swift Driver would be a handy tool to have!
    Cheers!

  129. Carol Schneider says

    My son was sitting on my bed as I listened to the video waiting to chat with me. He said “cool shirt and cool tats.” But I would like the screwdriver :-)

  130. says

    OOH! A new goody to play with! LOL! We’ve got a long TO-DO list and this would help with checking some of those items off of it!
    Also, just wanted to say, we will be in your neck of the woods next weekend! Going to a family reunion on the husband’s mother’s side of the family. We’ll be in Millbrook. (Staying in Montgomery). So, I’ll be sure to wave HI! ROFL!

  131. Maureen says

    Thanks for telling us about the Swift Driver! I would love to win one of these. I have arthritis and other problems with my wrists and hands, making it difficult to use a regular screwdriver. This would make things so much easier. Thank you for the chance to win one!

  132. says

    Kevin makes it look so easy! Please enter me as I have lots of curtain rods to hang and this little guy might come in handy!

  133. Debby says

    This screwdriver is just the tool I need. I’m getting older and something like this will make driving screws so much easier for me. I feel unsafe sometimes trying to manuever in tight places and this tool seems to provide a safer means to getting there. I also like the action of turning which will put less stress on my wrists. I enjoy your blog.

  134. Rebecca says

    Beam me up Scotty! I love clever new tools that make the most mundane irritating jobs easy!

  135. Amber says

    sweet! We actually have some blinds to hang soon too…this could help ;) Your room looks amazing, by the way…

  136. Barbara says

    Oh I need it! I’m redoing everything and know it would be my “go to” tool!

    You two rock!

  137. Leslie Snyder says

    Actually, I am preparing to install curtain rods and just bought (!) a small screwdriver/driver combo which, it turns out, doesn’t have enough power to drill through the plaster wall. So hearing about the swift driver caught my eye. Put my name in the hat! Thanks….

  138. Christie McGetrick says

    Love you blog – my daughter and her boyfriend are total DYIers and love your blog. Would love to win the featured tool. They are getting ready to put up new blinds.

  139. Amy Harris says

    I would LOVE to have one of these. My husband is always complaining about new tools like these, how they don’t work, they’ll break, so we’re always using his old tools that of course are laying everywhere in the garage and you can never find the right one. This would be so handy to keep inside and grab and use whenever I need it.

  140. Kathy says

    Since I plan to purchase and install some blinds like the ones you just put up, the Swift Driver would really come in handy :)

  141. Amanda says

    My husband gets antsy when I needle thru his screwdriver collection… would love one of my own!

  142. Cynthia says

    I’m about to do a bunch of hanging/installing in our newly painting living room, a new tool sure would be handy!

  143. Sarah says

    UPS is dropping off blinds as I’m typing… Looks like this little guy would be helpful. Would love to win one! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Maybe if I win this handy tool, my husband will no longer take those deep sighs when I ask him to help with a project.

  150. Ebba Snyman says

    All my tools have somehow migrated to the garage with my husbands tools. I would enjoy using this type of screwdriver for my remodeling projects INSIDE the house! Fingers crossed!

  151. Palma D. says

    I would love a Swift Driver for my husband. This would make DIY projects easier on the joints in his hands.

  152. Diane P. says

    Ok here’s your chance to help our marriage be a much happier one!!!!! Thank you in advance.

  153. Debora J says

    Thanks!

  164. says

    oh boy…could I use this. my grandson with down syndrome routinely removes all of the light switch covers in our house. I spend so much time trying to replace them with a badly injured right hand.

  165. Dinelle says

    I would love to win this tool. I have 2 daughters that I could give it to or just keep it for myself. :)

  166. Sue S. says

    I would love to have one of these handy dandy little gadgets! I have a stash of my own tools and I could use this for my collection. Everyone in the house always borrows my tools because they can’t find their own (maybe need to be careful where they put them away perhaps???). I will guard this with my life lol.

  167. Margy says

    Great demo, Kevin! My husband is s hard to buy gifts for and this looks like a perfect choice! YEA!

  168. molly tomaszewski says

    Love a chance to win that handy dandy Swift Driver! Just starting out on my own after a 24 yr marriage and need my own tools to work on my new home. I read your blog daily for inspiration and many how too’s for this place. Thank you for being so fun and sharing your knowledge.

  169. LeaDawn says

    I’ve been reading your blog for several months now and love everything u guys do. Like the both of u my husband and I do projects together and have for 25 years. The tool u demonstrated was so cool even I can figure it out. let’s face it some tools can be very difficult or intimidating at best. Your home is certainly coming together and this is one of my favorite blogs. Thx for sharing and giving older people new ideas.

  170. GinaE says

    Since I don’t have a great guy like Kevin, I’m always on the look out for tools that help me get the job done myself. This great screwdriver set would help get rid of all those little ones I have all over the place and that goose neck would really come in handy. Many thanks for the chance to win!!!

  171. Jane-Ellen says

    Love this tool! My son gave me this for Christmas. I was going around the house taking things apart just to put them back together because it was so much fun to use!

  172. Susan Dennis says

    Love your new window treatments PLUS that Kev showed how the Swift Driver works! Love that it contines to screw in as you turn front and backwards!!! How handy is that!!! Love your blog!

  173. Carla Mackey says

    Always on the look out for a nifty tool–especially one that is multipurpose!

  174. says

    Would love to have something to make my chores around the house a lot easier. This tool looks really cool.

  175. Meredith Williams says

    Woohoo! I’d love a swift driver! Looks way better than a boring old one! Nothing better than fun DIY! :)

  176. Sandee says

    I would love this tool. It would be the start of “my very own” tool box. I love the tutorial. A handy tool for ladies like me without a lot of strength in my hands.

  177. says

  178. CeeJay says

    Looks way cool! I love the “round the corner” option – thanks for the opportunity to own one!

  179. Kim W says

    OMG! What a handy tool! I am forever hunting a screwdriver in the house for that odd job…somehow, they always migrate into my husband’s shop. No way he could confuse the Swift Driver with one of his own…

  180. Pat Birkett-Roby says

    Thanks for showing us how the Swift Driver works——-I might even be able to hang up those curtains and blinds we needed to hang weeks ago—–you guys do an awesome job—-can’t wait to see your office/guest room completed.

  181. Julie Woods says

    What a great tool!! I think I need one of those for all my ongoing projects!! Thank u so much!! :) And thank u for a fabulous blog….I so enjoy reading it!!

  182. Pamela Raines says

    Looks like something to be used time and time again… think I would use it more than my battery powered baby drill!!

  183. says

    Cool! I bet my husband or son would be interested in that! Who can’t use a cool gadget? This might unknowingly be going on their Christmas lists!
    Thanks!

  184. Deborah Emmert says

    That tool would really come in handy! Just hung new rods by myself and boy what a pain that was!!!
    Love your blogs especially the wood on the cieling! If your ever looking for a project and you are in the Pittsburgh area…I have a game room that needs new cieling!, LOL !

  185. Karen says

    That is too cool! I can’t tell you how any brackets in my home are missing a screw due to that weird angle. Thanks for demonstrating, Kev!

  186. Judy says

    All the functions of a regular screwdriver in one versatile tool. Would love to win one for my many projects. Judy

    Thanks for the give away!
    -blessings

  189. Laura says

    I love your ideas and finished projects! I could really use this tool. I do all the fix-it/DIY projects at home and this would make it soooo much easier!

  190. Dianne says

    My husband is much too “busy” to handle the little annoying things around here. My own electronic toy would be just the thing to help me get the jobs done.

  191. Susan says

    That looks awesome! We could get rid of a whole drawer of screwdrivers if we had one.

  192. says

    Aren’t you two the cutest, like evah! Seems like I’m always without a screwdriver in our house. This would be very handy!

  193. MJ Hepburn says

    Looks like a handy gadget! And probably a lot less tiring to use than my cordless drill/driver which weighs a ton after a few minutes.

  194. Valerie Gilreath says

    The Swift Driver looks awesome! I want one!
    Thanks for the chance to win. Keep the good stuff coming.
    Valerie

    God bless all of you who do giveaways! I love your blog and I would enjoy a giveaway win. We are moving in 2 weeks and that little gadget would be just perfect for me to use.

  221. Chelsea says

    I’m always wanting to DIY but my hubby’s not handy and I don’t have the proper tools. :( Maybe this could help me! :)

  222. Doris G says

    This would really come in handy on many projects, instead of running up and down the stairs to get a different screwdriver, like I did two days ago!

  223. Cathie Laurent says

    Great tool to have! Maybe it would get me inspired to pick out drapes and hang them!

  224. says

    I’d love to have one! My dad owned a true value most of my life and I grew up playing/working there – so I have a deeply rooted appreciation for master mechanic (they make really great stuff!) and True Value stores ;)

  225. Olga says

    Hey, guys!
    You inspired me to dyi. I had just bout my first pink home improvement kit! I will benefit form this new lovely tool. I do have 22 windows in our new house without any curtains or blinds. I need this new tool, to do it myself, without asking my hubby;)

  231. Donna says

    What a cool tool! Anything that makes hanging curtain rods easier!!
    Thanks for all your great giveaways!

  232. Carla Hill says

    I LOVE it! I am so excited. What does it say about me that a darn TOOL makes me tell the computer “WOW! Look at that, look at that” ? Not some shoe sale or such, nope it is a tool!

    Please tell Kevin his sound effects are great, lol! How much better can a tool demo be than one with perfect sound effects? :-)

  233. Cris says

    I love those walls! The screwdriver wold be perfect for me since I am tool challenged. : )

  234. says

    Oh my gosh, love the attachment…i want one!! My husband is always complaining that his big fingers can’t get into spaces for him to screw something in. Now one last excuse for him not to do something, better yet, a tool i can use and get it done faster.

  235. Laura says

    We just bought a condo and have soooo many curtain rods to hang, sure would come in handy. Thank you!! ;)

  236. Karen M says

    I’ve subscribed to your blog for a long time and really love your sense of style and fun. I’m going to go out and get one of a swift driver for a friend of mine who is so hard to buy for. Thanks!

  237. Erin Rizzo says

  242. Tracy G. says

    That Swift Driver is way cool and I’d love to have one! Like Kevin’s tshirt, too!

  243. says

    My dad was a “tool man.” A piece he has promised me when he passes is his gooseneck pliers. I know that I am a girl but who cares. I am not ashamed to say ” I love tools”. End of story :)

  244. Joyce says

    That looks like a gadget my husband would love. We’ve done DIY projects since the early 1980’s when we bought our first home (900 sq. ft!). How handy!

  245. Tina Catoe says

    The swift driver really looks like a tool that I could use. I have the “other” kind but this looks easier to use.

  246. Pamela says

    That gooseneck option is one of the best ideas
    I’ve seen since sliced bread.

  247. Barbara says

    The gooseneck got me – way cool!

    Oh, and after seeing the blinds you installed in your office (and the ones you demoed in the video) I went over to Home Depot and got me some. My daughter hung them for me and I am so pleased. Thanks, Layla, for a great recommendation!

  248. Jackie Schulz says

    As a single mom and home owner this tool looks like a “must have” for my toolbox. I would love to be chosen as a winner to receive one of these! Thanks for the opportunity! ;-)

  251. Linda Higginbotham says

    Oh My, lots of comments, but I would like to say that this would be the perfect gift for my husband. He loves tools and this one looks VERY handy!
    Thank you!!!

  252. Anne Whitehurst says

    I too like it after seeing you use it, especially when the 90 degree angle bit worked! This is just in time for us as we too are changing out shades! We also like how many bits come with it and hope to see our name among the winners. Thanx for sharing.

  253. Amy Winningham says

    Would love to win this! We actually just hung new curtains in my daughter’s room this morning and this would have come in very handy!

  254. Pam says

    Oh, what a way to make my life easier. I really need my own screwdriver and be able to hide it from all who enter my home! Sh-h-h I promise not to let them know if I win it.

  255. Ruth Baumgartner says

    Please let it be me, I too am taking on the unfun job of HEAVY curtain rods on Monday- I would just have to wait for my new tool!

  256. Judy says

    PS Love your blog. Great info and you have fab taste! Can you come to my house and help me????

  259. says

    I would love to try one of these new shift drivers. My husband is always so happy to tell everyone who walks into our garage that all the tools are my wifes. If anything needs fixing I’m there. The first present he ever gave me was a power miterbox ” chop saw”
    I love tools…

  260. cheri says

    Wow, that’s so intriguing! I’d love to have a Swift Driver around the house! Keep up the great work on your blog – and your cottage.

  261. says

    Streamline my menagerie of differently branded screwdrivers???
    This ‘tool-wielding-woodwork-building-Nana’ would be delighted to!
    Sounds like an ideal addition to my belt!!!

    Thanks for yelling your idea to Kev, Layla;-)

  262. ruby hostetler says

    Oh boy could I use one of them I diffidently want my name in the drawing!! LOVE U”RE BLOG!

  263. Dorothy says

    I’d love you to send on emy way! We’re in the midst of a huge..um… conversation (yeah, sure, that’s the word) about putting up blinds on our problem living room windows. I bet this little baby would do the trick!

  264. says

    I love that new screwdriver! I can’t count the times I have been frustrated trying to screw in window brackets, etc. This is just what I need. Thanks for the heads-up.

  265. JayDub says

    We just bought a new (to us!) house and its time to get hanging! My fingers are crossed that we’ll win this handy helper!

  266. Tracy says

    Holy Shamokes! That thing is COOL! I really need one of these…wait! “ME” saying I need a t-o-o-l? Unheard of! Thanks for the video. That’s what sold me on it!
    Keepin’ my fingers crossed xxxxxxxxx

  267. Sharon Bolderson says

    What a cool tool! Love how the bendy attachment worked. I sure wouldn’t mind one of these in our tool collection.

  268. beverly says

    I know my hubby would find lots of uses for that neat tool and so would I. Being chosen as a recipient would be won-der-ful!

  269. Ann W says

    I think I need one of these. I don’t even have a battery operated screw driver. Ann

  270. Terri says

    What a neat invention! I have arthritis and that looks so easy! Pain free Diy! yay!

  271. Chris Klauer says

    Would love one as we have an old house we are trying to keep up with!!!

  272. Kris says

    As a single mom I always try to do home projects myself. This tool looks great for someone like me!! Good demo, Kevin.

  273. Chris P says

    I had never seen this before-want one!!! Thanks for the great post and the chance to win!!!!

  274. erin says

  276. Donna says

    Just finished painting my family room. Time for shades, curtain rods and Ikea panels….would LOVE to have the chance to win!

  277. Pat Willems says

    That tool looks “AWESOME” and I would love to win one for my husband. But if I don’t I might just have to buy one for his birthday! Cool video!!!

  278. Andrea says

    Performing a major de-cluttering this summer before doing the redecorating needed because of a flood. One tool
    to replace several others would be great. Thanks for the chance.

  279. Julia says

    sounds great – I used to use a battery screwdriver but it was never charged!

  280. Sharon Hermens says

    I could have used one of those when I was putting the curtain rods up in my ‘Stone Cottage’ a couple of weeks ago. It’s not too late. If I don’t win one I will surely buy one.
    Thanks!!

  281. Laurie says

    I showed my husband Kevin’s great demonstration video and his comment was, ” That would be so helpful for us gray haired guys (my silver fox hubby) with old hand joints”. I hope we win, because I could add even more items to his honey-do-list with less guilt.

  282. says

    This tool would come in handy, as we just bought a house and need to install blinds in every single window!

  283. Ashley C. says

    After buying our first house last summer and living here for a year, we still don’t have it in the budget to buy cool new tools like this one. It would be great to win this and surprise my husband!

  284. Beth C. says

    I’m all for anything that helps me make my own tool stash AND helps me “help” my husband lose a few of his ;-)

  285. Mary says

    We just bought a fixer-upper, and I’m sure we’d put this to use! Thanks for the giveaway!

  286. Maggie says

    I’m about to hang window treatments myself…would love to try out the new tool. Thanks for the giveaway.

  288. Jo says

    Ooooh Baby – You are singing my song! I am constantly doing home improvement projects and I would LOVE one of these!!! Thanks for the offer.

  289. says

    I’m coming in on this one a bit late, but loved the video and wanted to enter! I agree, this looks like it could replace a bunch of screwdrivers that we have squatting (not paying their way) in our tool room. :)

  290. Sharon Stinson says

    Hey guys! Love the look of the Swift Driver (the guy doing the demo is pretty darn cute too) and would love to win one (the Swift Driver, not the guy – already have one of those and Layla, I don’t think you’d wanna let him go anyway – LOL!) Have to say the new blinds look fantastic, as does the whole room, and I think YA’LL rock!

  291. Lynn M says

    Loved the video. This little baby would have a wonderful home here in our tool bag! Thanks for the chance to win.

  298. says

    This tool looks really cool — I think my husband needs one, if he doesn’t I am always looking for gifts for the son-in-law, I think he needs one too! Helen

    Would love this cool tool! Looks like it would come in really handy! And my hubby would probably like a new ‘toy’ – maybe we can knock out some of our to-do list sooner! :-)

  300. Earline Gualdoni says

    Can’t wait to try the Swift Driver out! I have blinds and curtain rods that need to be hung in 3 different rooms! Good excuse for a new tool, heh!?

  301. says

    We would love one! We are DIY fools over here at Brighton Cottage : o ) I’m sure it would make hubby’s projects a bit easier!

  302. Ronda says

    Come August 1st, all three kids will be going to school, and I can start on a to-do list that would make your head spin. I need this tool. :0)

  303. Christie says

    Genius tool! I’ve always hated hanging blinds because it’s so hard to use a screw driver in those tight places around windows. Thanks for sharing.

  304. says

    I probably could have used this when I hung a blind and 2 days later it fell on my husbands head…great “sorry” and birthday gift for him : )

  305. says

    Just bought a five-acre fixer-upper. Crazy how many project there are to do, but enjoying each and every one of them. Love the satisfaction of doing it ourselves…

    Thanks for sharing all your great ideas with the rest of the world!

  306. kimmie says

    we have hung so many blinds over the years and this would have been AweSoME! thanks for the chance :)

  307. Kesha says

    Oohh! This would be perfect! I just got some new blinds and curtains I need to hang!

  308. cindy says

    Having the right tool for the job makes the job so much easier. This looks like the right tool!! Thanks for the giveaway.

  309. Joanne B. says

    Sign me up! With a garage full of my husband’s tools (he has EVERYTHING) I can never find a #%@*! scredriver when I need one! This baby would be perfect and I am telling you now, I will hide it from him if I win! Thanks for this chance to own one!

  310. Gwen says

    The closest True Value is on the big Island of hawaii, would need to fly to get there so please please please, pick me, I would love to get one

  311. Sashka Bennett says

    You had me at, “we’re thinking we can probably just get rid of the 8 million regular screwdrivers.” This tool looks awesome!

  312. Renee says

    Would love to win a magic tool. Thanks for hosting the giveaway. Love to read about all your adventures. Thanks.

  313. Koren H says

    Awesome! I’m re-doing my living room & my office/craft room and this would TOTALLY come in handy! :)

  314. Debbie W. says

    What a great tool! (And I have two hard-to-buy-for birthdays coming up this week!) My question is, do you need a lot of hand strength like a regular screwdriver or does the turning motion help with that? If so, it truly is the perfect tool! Thanks for sharing!

  315. Christina says

    I love your blog! This product looks super cool and will be so helpful on home repairs and projects.

  316. Mary Light says

    Good idea Layla & Kev! I could really use a Swift Driver! I wouldn’t have to hunt for hubby’s tools…I’d have my own.

  317. Marianne in Mo. says

    Oh I will need this tool when we finish building my brother-in-laws carriage house! Lots of tiny nooks and crannies there in less than 900 sq. ft. !!

  318. Aimee says

    I’m thinkin’ this could be my screwdriver that stays in the kitchen drawer where I can find it. I’ll let him keep his thousands of other tools in his jam packed mess of a tool chest.

  319. Debbie says

    I’m recently new to following yall, but am thoroughly enjoying your posts so far. Thanks for the great info and nice pics. Great job!

  320. valeriewabisabi says

    This sounds so cool! My old ratchet screwdriver broke, i would love to try this one!

  321. Pam says

    oooo. I think I need one. It could definitely come in handy not only aroung the house, but also working on my re-use furniture projects.

  322. Jan G. says

    I would LOVE one of these tools… 1) either my husband has taken mine to the garage because he can’t find his or 2) i have to wait for him to place a screw because his auto screwdriver is dead and i can’t push that hard with a manual!

  323. Catherine B. says

    My husband could really use the Swift Driver when he works on his cars. … always a strange angle going on!

  324. says

    My elbows and wrists are screaming at me to win one of these so my furniture/house fixing can get done sooner, rather than later. Here at Rhododendron Cottage, there is much to do before I can turn to blogging. But it’s hard to wait for that day…….meantime, I watch and learn and fix and paint and so on…….y’all are helping me make a happy second half of my life as i follow my bliss…….thanks for sharing your knowledge…….

  325. Janene says

    My husband is a tool freak & such a wonderful handyman! He would love one of the Swift Drivers! It would be such a nice surprise for him!

  326. natty says

    I would love to have one of these tools. I feel it would be a great tool for a senior citizen to use because of it’s flexibility.
    thank you for being so generous.

  327. says

    I love that gooseneck thingy that Kevin used in the video! That is my kind of gadget, for sure! Very nice of you to be giving a couple of these away…no matter who wins, you rock!

  328. Sandra Clark says

    Where was this tool when we installed 4 sets of blinds in each of 20 apartments? Clever tool.

  329. says

    My husband and I had to make 175 cables for new TV’s where he works, one of these (or two) would have the 2 – 9 hour days go much faster! AMAZING give away. Fingers crossed!!

  330. says

    Oooh! Pick me!! Pick me!! I’m dying to become more DIY! So tired of asking my husband to help me with every little project that pops into my head! This tool looks awesome :) Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

  331. glenda says

    I love that! How handy would that be to have the bendable attachment as well as the continual tightening/loosening.

  332. trisha says

    I need one! I have been asking my husband to put up similar curtains for weeks now. Maybe I could do it myself with that handy tool?! Thanks for sharing:)

  333. Dawn Aragon says

    I love all your DIY projects so much. I’ve even incorporated many of your ideas into my own home. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas

  334. TamiK says

    Oh my this is a an awesome screw driver and yes I want one, I too will throw away the billion screw drivers away, I just cleaned the tool draws out last night thanks for a chance to win

  335. Katy Smith says

    Looks like a very handy tool and I would love to get rid of all our countless screwdrivers! Thanks!

  336. Julie Heighes says

    Hi Layla! I’d love to win the tool so I too, can minimize my tool drawer!
    Thanks!

  337. Lee says

    Hi Layla and Kev, your video was so helpful! I’ve put up blinds and just wanted to run screaming from the room because my cordless drill wouldn’t fit in that tiny little space. This tool would be perfect!

  338. KimK says

    Thanks for the tip. In the unlikely event I don’t win, I will purchase this myself!

  339. Ashli says

    I just accidentally broke my husband’s cordless screwdriver and may have been forbidden to use it again… So I need this for redemption.

  340. says

    Woo Hoo- I’d love a chance at a new tool and one that could replace my own stash of extras! LOL Thanks for the offer.
    :-) Sue

  341. Ashlee says

    Looks handy! I always need more tools to add to my slowly growing collection. :)

  342. says

    Considering I need all the help I can get in the DIY department it would be great to win one of these.

    Your guest room is looking lovely.

  343. Kakye says

    Oh I want one! And, I sure wish we had known about this one before we put up mini blinds this weekend! What a great tool!

  344. Denise says

    Wow, new tool! Thanks for sharing the review and info on this new tool, always great to hear from the experts.
    Hope I’m lucky to win one :>)

  345. Joyce says

    That’s a cool tool. Since I do all the little repair jobs around the house, I could use one. Love your blog!!

  346. MimiG says

    Love how everything is coming along and I would LOVE to have one of those drivers. You’re right, I can see most of my screwdrivers going to the “SA boutique” for them to resell when (not if) I win this one..

  347. Ashley Terry says

    Looks like the perfect tool for us in our new home! Just moved in and ready to hang up blinds and curtains. Thanks for sharing!

  348. says

    oh my goodness! I’m so “tool” challenged and this looks Easy Breezy! :) Thanks for all the fabulous tips – you’re renovating my “can’t do” list into my ‘Can do’ list!

  349. Leona Majesky says

    Would love to win one, want to start doing my own projects, and hubby’s tools are off limits! Thanks for the opportunity!

  350. Ashley says

    Oh the things I could do with that tool! My Pinterest might then become my check list :)

  351. Judy Bradford says

    This would be a great item to have in my own tool kit. Thanks for the chance to win!
    Love your blog, found you through Ree!

  352. Pam M says

    Yes, to cool giveaways! What a great way to wake up on an already hot Monday! Thanks Kevin & Layla!

  353. Mary Anne Pickard says

    Most of my friends would NEVER get excited about a tool. But, my husband actually gives me tools as gifts! He says he comes home to something changed in our house daily.

  354. Frieda LAmberg says

    I love, love your site. We are getting ready to move and I am inspired by some of your projects! I love the blend of Ikea/ and mid century style….so much like my decorating style!!!!

  355. Marci Cunningham says

    I would LOVE to have this!!!! We have a wide variety of screwdrivers ourselves!! LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!

  356. says
