I need one of these for a tight space; what is it called? Tried searching: Phillips wrench, phillips key, phillips L-shaped, etc...

one of them goofy screwdrivers I have about 10 of in my tool box with no use for ..
oh a little tip for using one to keep it from popping out of the phillips cross put a little toothpaste like colgate on the tip as it fills it in and the grit prevents it from slipping out , the toothpaste washes off without damage . or you can use real fine valve lapping compound . but it takes solvent to remove it .

Polishing or rubbing compound works also, at least about as well as anything else... (which is to say that nothing really works great with those things)

whats the point of those? I always see them, is it just getting in tight spots? or something else?

I think the proper name of it is the engineers revenge device . I only had to use one on some moulding on a car a long time ago , like I said I have about 10 of the things in the screwdriver drawer from all the sets I have boughtover the years , wait hold on .. damn I think one is pregnant ...
