Whats the correct name for what i term a captive screwdriver, Its a flat blaede screwdriver that holds out of reach terminal screws on its tip allowing you to secure it with one hand It works by having to spring blades, that are pushed apart and grip the screw until you pull back a collar, the blades move together releasing the screw......Im looking for a replacement for my old faithfull one that has been mislaid icon_redface.gif

The Stanley one listed though wouldn't work as well for terminal screws as it would not clear the insulation shroud around the screw - the wedge blades work well in such instances as they can often be selected in width that is no wider than the screw head slot width - therefore, no protrusion.
