See this topic for the new Centrotec Rapidapter (Wera).  Hopefully coming to the USA soon. It will Lock both wire and ball detent bits.

Thanks Seth

Wasn't there another that was for ball detent? I had one that was Festool that I thought was for ball detent,... someone liked it more than me. Or was it just a BHS 65 that had been playing nice?

I know that the BHS 65 I have now is garbage for even wire detent

   Yes, there was a ball detent holder. I don't know the number for sure maybe it's the 65. But at this point I don't care because the Rapidapter is just waaaaay better than any other I have used (I have a Wera one).
