CONCEPT : Magnetic Screwdriver

Screwdriver, with a magnet on it, is usually a good method to pick up the screw when working. But it has a problem, when unloads the screw, It needs to use another hand to tear it down. It is not convenient for some workers who need another hand to assist the work. So I make a solution to solve this issue.

If screwdrivers could break off the magnetic force with one hand only, it would be more convenient for users because sometimes, other hand is used to hold on to something. The idea comes from mechanical pencil, I use the similar mechanical structure in this screwdriver design.
