As square drive adaptors have been mentioned above.
Here is an adaptor I use on my 1/2 inch drive impact driver, it reduces the square drive hex bits so turns the impact driver into a drill/screwdriver.
I bought an expensive one as it has a nice smooth release system but there are cheap ones on eBay for under £4.

Nothing wrong with LADA's I had one :)

The 4x4 Niva. 1.7 fuel injected it went quite well and brilliant off road.

My parents had a few when I was a wee bit younger.
Believe it was 3 or 4 Riva's, 1 estate and 2 or 3 saloons.

Not bad cars; bit basic looking but ultra reliable and almost indestructible.

I know it's going off topic but I cracked up to be reminded of Lada again and even moreso hearing yet again about people saying how reliable they were.
Being clever, as they are, Lada got all their warranty underwritten by a major UK ins company.So warranty costs were the same agreed set amount per car.
I know all about it as I was involved with the horrendous claims costs investigation.
Owners say the cars were good but the warranty claims from Lada dealers was unbelievable and the scheme lost millions, oh those halcyon days!
Lada no doubt made more money from "false" warranty claims than they did from the car sales.
Unless of course the claims were true and the vehs really were totally crap!!

I had excellent service from my dealer. The car was brand new. Took it in for the

1000 mile initial service on the Friday and took it offroading on the Sunday.

Everyone thought i was mad. Even though some of them had tuned cars and

offroad tyres i was the only one that made it up one bank cleanly. But as you crested

the top it dipped a little and i didnt have enough lock and clipped a tree with the bonnet.

The service manager was also there and he said bring it in and they will do the work

under warranty. Put it down as a paint defect. :)

Only other issue was the crank sensor failed, or the magnet fell of or somwething silly.

Sold to my mate and he sold it to a guy that shipped it out to Bulgaria. Said they love

them over there due to the poor road conditions.
