The Screwdriver is a tool required to unlock a little compartment located on the sides of the stairs in the Secret Area, close to the Basement tunnel. An item useful for the player's escape will always be found inside.

If Extra Locks or Extreme mode is on, it is also needed to get the Secret Lever in the backyard.

It spawns on a shelf near the ceiling of the second floor, just above the stairs and to the right of the Main Door. To knock it down, you need either a Crossbow and one of the Tranquilizer Darts, obtainable with the Weapon Key, or the Shotgun and ammo, obtainable by bringing all three shotgun pieces down into the Garage.


  • Since 1.5, the Gasoline Can can be found on the shelf next to the Screwdriver.
  • There is a glitch where it can be obtained by throwing a vase through the Bathroom wall in a very specific spot, knocking the cup down from the shelf with the Screwdriver inside.
