“We haven’t seen a design like the MetMo Driver since the mid20th century. A piece of engineering history reimagined for today. MetMo Driver is both a toy and an anxiety tool that will keep you happy for hours playing with it or using it to drive to the center of the earth.
The MetMo driver is a hybrid of old hand cleats (the forerunners of electric drills) and modern ratchet screwdrivers. Designed for designers, engineers, thinkers and anyone who just wants to focus, destress or just play. MetMo Driver is a powerful and versatile tool that is incredibly fun to work with!”

“We decided to express our MetMo signature satisfaction with one of the most commonly used tools, the humble screwdriver. We were fascinated by Konrad Baumann’s 1950s ratchet and its mesmerizing open ratchet, so we set to work on building the most powerful and compact drive in existence, and while we’re at it, bring some satisfaction to MetMo at every opportunity. ”
“The MetMo Driver is a tool you won’t want to hide in your toolbox! Every spin and click is thought out to the smallest detail to give you maximum enjoyment, even if you’re just sitting at your desk.”
