Skil Twist

The project

The key feature of this rotatable screwdriver is the rotation mechanism of the handgrip. The handgrip swings back rather than folding open, as in most products on the market. This “twist” makes it possible to firmly and comfortably hold the lockable handgrip in both positions. Its other functions are consistently incorporated in the design, such as the Skil Twist’s soft handgrip and a built-in-spotlight.


A handy battery-powered screwdriver for the do-it-yourself market. Turning the handgrip makes difficult to reach places accessible. Other brands do have products with comparable functionality on the market, but the Skil Twist’s turning movement has been both attractively and practically executed.

— The sober yet elegant for of this tool helps to ensure a convincing impression.
