Jackly Precision Screwdriver Kit Review (JK 6089-A)
I have been through half a dozen inexpensive throwaway screwdriver kits fixing laptops, small electronics, video game systems, and hard drives. When I was looking online last year for a good set, it was suggested that I pick up one of the Jackly tool kits. I found one on Amazon for under $11 shipped that had just about every tool I needed, with the exception of the Apple pentalobe driver. This particular Jackly Precision Screwdriver Kit, model JK 6089-A, comes with a magnetic driver and a straight extension tool. There are an assortment of attachments ranging from 1mm to 5mm in width, as well as a pair of tweezers.

The packaging on this is what really surprised me with the kit. When I opened it up the first time, I was impressed that nothing fell out of place during the transport from Amazon to me. This is thanks to how the bits are fitted into the slots. This kit is enclosed in a spring opened clamshell that keeps the individual parts from getting shifted around when being moved. Pressing the “open” button on the kit relieves the tension on the springs attached to the rows of bits and lifts the top of the clamshell, exposing the tools.
I’ve been using this kit for over a year on various projects including several PC builds, small electronics, and even to assemble my projector screen. I’ve primarily used the flathead, Phillips, and Torx bits on my projects – all of which performed perfectly, even when used on overly torqued screws and screws with Loctite applied. I have not had the opportunity to test out every bit in the kit, but from my experience with the selection I have used, I expect the same performance with the rest.
You will see this screwdriver in action in many of our videos and I expect that it will hold up considering what I’ve used it for thus far.
With the past year of solid performance from the Jackly Precision Screwdriver Kit, I’m giving it a 10 out of 10 and am awarding it the Gold Pressed Latinum award. You would be hard pressed to find a more useful toolkit for small electronics for under $11 and I have no hesitations in recommending this.
