Quick change extentions

Review Summary

I purchased these quick change extentions to get into those tight spaces and areas that I could reach directly. These extentions allow me to change bits quickly. They come in three different sizes, but I only listing one size for the review. They come in 3", 6", and 12" ($7.99,$10.29 and $11.59 respectively). Simple to operate, push collar away from tip area and remove bit. Collar does not have to be pushed to insert new bit.
It accepts all 1/4" hex shank accessory and drill bits, including all Insty Drive bits. I have have these for a couple of years and have had no failures or a need to replace them. This is one of those items that you may not think you need until you get involved in building a few projects and try to figure out a way to make it easier.
