You can never have too many tools on you. But since we don’t have unlimited pockets, we can’t carry them all. Plus tools are heavy. That’s why multi-tools are so awesome. They let you carry an assortment of tools in a small space. Now, a company called Fix Manufacturing is offering some cool new multi-tools that fit in your belt buckle.
They are working on three different tool sets: Powder Pliers, Board Sword, and Wheelie Wrench. All three are designed to act like conventional buckles for holding up your pants, while doubling as a detachable multi-tool that you can take out and use when needed. Powder Pliers is a snowboard tool, combining three screwdrivers (#3, #2, and slotted), two box wrenches (8mm and 10mm), a 4mm hex bit, and an edge file.
The Board Sword is for skaters and combines three wrenches (1/2-inch, 9/16-inch, and 3/8-inch), two screwdrivers (#2 and slotted), a round file, and a safety blade. The Wheelie Wrench is for cyclists and has several hex bits (from 2mm to 6mm), two Torx bits (T10 and T25), two screwdrivers (#2 and slotted), two box wrenches (8mm and 10mm), a 15mm open-ended wrench, a spoke wrench, and a tire lever.
All three tools work with the company’s All-Time Belt. You can check them out on Kickstarter. Prices range from $25 to $35(USD) for the tool sets, and $65 to $75 including the belt.
