These are great sets, and there is a LIFETIME GUARANTEE on all Halfords Professional Range!

A high-quality offering with a good selection of sizes and configurations including two stubbies and a couple of space-saving parallel flat-blades. The colour-coded, incredibly easy-to-grip handles are the set’s best point.

Halfords?
Screw them!
Keep your receipt for the lifetime guarantee
They were giving these away free with certain castrol oils about a year ago so got me a set and their excellent quality, wouldn't pay normal price but for £9.99 there good value.
I got a set free with Halfords bike oil a while ago. They are well made and well worth a tenner. Their £20ish normal price is a bit steep though.
They're nearly always this price to be fair. Wouldn't pay the RRP but they are very good screwdrivers.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Halfords
I bought a set of these when they were this price previously and they're very good, heated
Receipt will surely fade to be unreadable within 5 years even...
I've got a set of these, they're top notch. I'd gladly recommend these to people for the price.

it has a lifetime guarantee, so they guarantee it up until the point you can't read it.
Got a few sets free with oil. They are my crap drivers. I personally think they are average at best.

Scan it, attach then email it to yourself using Gmail. Use the subject header of Halfords or screwdriver then simply do a search within your gmail account when the need arises. That's what I do with all my receipts.
I also use the Gmail calendar function to email me reminders about those pesky phone redemption dates.

And if they say "This isn't genuine", show them the faded one and say " Don't blame me. YOU provided me with a sub standard receipt!"
Great quality although I also got mine when they do them free with any Halfords oil when on promotion, which is usually quite often.
All there tools instore are half price not because thet are half price just cause they like to stick £200 rrp £100 off. Robbing gits i say wouldn't buy any of the crap tools. There quality would be on a par with poundland and i am being serious.

The only serious thing is your stupid comparison.
Ok deal, if the screwdrivers are good quality, which is more than can be said for Halfords lifetime guarantee. I spent alot of money on a ratchet, with a halfords lifetime guarantee only to be told that it only covered the handle and not the ratchet mechanism(that was a lesson learned for me).

They sell the mechansm for 2.99 should have insisted on that!
Even Snap On tools don't have the mechanism under the guarantee.

Is that so? What is the point on having guarantees only for the parts and bits which are normally indestructible in normal conditions but no guarantees on mechanism which quite often can fail...!!!?
Seriously, I am not getting this! Also, lets face it, its just another selling point, screwdriver can go wrong how often? 1:100 000? And then is 1 out of 8 which is about £1.25 in value- will you go there to claim? You must use bicycle then as the overall cost of using car for that will be much higher..!
