These seem like a neat idea:

Is anyone using these?

I have a set of them, but the little tip seems to get in the way if you need the length. But they do work well, I typically use the little hole on my strippers

One person at school brought one in, no one likes it, including him! I'm with JC and use the "Loop" hole in my wire strippers.

Hole in strippers for me. Or jaw on the end of the stripper.

I have had the Klein version since it first came out ... and my Ideal drivers also have a similar feature in the handle.

In a decade of ownership, I've used the wire-bending feature exactly twice. At least, that is, for bending wire. I've used that little pin on the Klein to identify / sort out my toos from those of others many times laugh

That little pin can poke a nice hole in your hand if you happen to use the screwdriver for a chisel.

I have a straight blade one and I never knew what the pin was for:) Now I do, thanks Paul smile I'd let you know how it works but I rarely use solid wire
