Turners Falls, MA, May 20, 2021, Mayhew Steel Products, Inc. (Mayhew Tools) introduces three new low-profile screwdrivers, including a #1 Phillips, a #2 Phillips, and a flat tip. The innovative, low-profile design provides high-performance screwdriver applications in hard-to-reach areas. More specifically, the 10 mm alloy steel bit is compact enough to reach into those space limiting areas, while still affording full engagement to the screw at a 90-degree angle. The tools are ideal for any application where space is limited, such as automotive assembly, small engine repairs, dash and/or door actuator applications, and more.

Each of the low profile screwdrivers is sold individually:

  • Part # 16990: Low Profile Flat Screwdriver
  • Part # 16991: Low Profile #1 Phillips Screwdriver
  • Part # 16992: Low Profile #2 Phillips Screwdriver


Measuring 4.25” in overall length, the screwdriver’s slim, low-profile design makes them convenient to access, transport, and store. The contoured handle fits securely in the palm of the hand to provide a comfortable and reliable grip. The heat treatment applied to the handle in the manufacturing process enhances the tool’s durability and reinforces its strength while the open slot in handle design allows the user to fasten or secure to a key ring or other devices.Mayhew Tools are sold through an extensive network of global distributors, primarily serving the industrial, automotive, and hardware markets.
