SCHRAUBENDREHEREINSATZ MIT AUSSENSECHSKANT
{Hex socket} screwdriver insert bit


Explanation:
This is the term in the USA. I am not sure whether you mean the bit itself has the aussensechskant or whether the base of the bit has the hex shape.

Look at the link for more info.

Explanation:
Screwdriver bit for socket head screws.

The bit has an external hexagon, so it fits screws (or bolts) with an internal hexagon. These are correctly called "socket head screws" (Innensechskantschraube), but also allen screws, cap screws....

You could also just call it \"screwdriver hexagon bit\" or \"screwdriver hex. bit\" is also commomnly used.
