Nifty Design for a Compact Ratcheting Screwdriver for Bike Repair

If you need some extra leverage, you can pull the red endcap out. It's attached to a shaft that terminates in a knife hinge, so you can make the tool L-shaped, giving you that extra bit of torque.

Odd that they show mostly Phillips heads. Almost all my bike parts are hex. Maybe bikes are different in Taiwan?
