Are Screwdriver Handles Designed for Wrenches? (Explained!)

Using a wrench on a screwdriver is a great way to strip a screw. Some screwdriver handles are shaped so that a wrench can slide over them for more torque.

Only a specific screwdriver handle is designed to accept a wrench. The typical screwdriver handle is not designed that way and will be damaged by trying to turn it with a wrench. Just by looking at it, or visually examining the screwdriver, you can tell if it’s designed to be used with a wrench, and should only be used in this manner when the extra torque is needed
