Default Ofna 1/4" drive tool set question

So I got this set for my electric screwdriver. Decided to go with the set with the handle. You know 2 birds 1 stone. My question is, are the bits supposed to "lock" into the handle? Kinda weird if they dont.

I have thee losi 8 in 1 1/4 inch drive set and in the handle is a strong magnet. I bet the ofna is the same. I have never had a problem with mine, and they make life much easier!

If the Ofna doesn't have a magnet it probably has a spring wire to hold the bit in. So no is the answer to the question, they do not lock in to the handle like they would be with the elec. driver.

I have the OFNA bits and they don't have the groove or magnet to secure them into place. I dremeled a groove in the hex for the drill to snap into. It's possible they changed something, my bits are probably well over two years old with heavy use and still good condition.

The bits dont stay in at all. I can put the bit into the handle, turn the handle (bit going down) and the bit falls out.

Hey Jesse, not sure which bits you got, but these already have the bits slotted.
