I bought a smartphone tool kit. In it are two tools/bits I don't know the purpose of.

What are they for?

I don't have a user for them just curious.

That list of phones is pretty old, so perhaps its an antenna tightener or something?

google images tells me that the case is full of makeup brushes so my best guess is the tool is for curling eyebrows?

My guess it is a screw head capture so the screws stay on the end of the screwdriver.

Brunzy: Could be the handle the bits slot into

 

Bits have their own handles as per second picture.  They are little screwdrivers.  The screwdrivers are what I bought the kit for (to allow me to work on marine electronics).

 

The red plastic component goes over the top end of the screwdrivers to allow more turning force to be applied.

You could well be right I reckon. Otherwise could the be extension pieces to make the driver shaft longer? Looks like the two fit together?

Cheers

Both ends are round. At the narrow end, one tool has two projections, the other two little indentations.

 

It's unclear how you would rotate the tool with anything else in the toolkit.

Only thing I can think of would be for applying even downward pressure to a U.FL(or similar) antenna connector the slot being so the cable can exit

 

But that is an educated guess.
