Certainly would have been fine, it's all in fun anyway.

lol, I agree- no Wallyworld!

I could barely make out the markings on mine, had to use a lighted magnifier. It might have been made for or even by the company on mine and then sold to other vendors. But however it came to be, it's a very good tool. Has a lot of spring pressure to hold tightly onto a screw. It unlocks itself when there's enough tension as you screw in the screw, and it lets you get into tighter places than the kind that has the spring steel fingers. Would cost $10 to make today here in the US.
