If a Phillips bit "jumps out" of the fastener (often referred to as camout), the surrounding work piece area can be damaged. ACR bits reduce the risk of camout and permit higher applied torque. ACR insert bits' special wing-face ribs grip screw recesses to reduce stripping and camout. Some ACR bits have these special wing-face ribs for driving screws, some have ribs for removing and yet others have ribs for both driving and removal.

In case you didn't know, ACR stands for the "anti-camout ribs" that are formed on Phillips driver tips and may also occur in screw sockets. The ribs mate drivers securely to screws to minimize camout while reducing worker fatigue. ACR drivers can reduce camout by 30% to 40%.
