EDCGEAR carabiner tools, mini prybars, keyring gadgets, etc.

I am sure I saw these on Kickstarter, in titanium, but I cannot find the thread about them. Anyway, here are budget-friendly incarnations in stainless steel, at DX:

DX have a small range, including the pocket hanger I saw at Banggood, for a little bit cheaper (2.15 USD).

26g, is not a lot, but with keys or a knife?

I wonder if they were produced by same factory as Navy or Nextool.

Thanks Chloe, I didn’t know I needed a carabiner until I saw your post. Smile It might even be useful. I see a Maxpedition “Beefy” EDC organizer in my future. Shocked

That navy cui 2001 was the best damn bottle opener I’ve had (1st link from fasttech)…gave it to my stepdad and that started him into the edc world. About 2 years later he’s completely blown my collection out of the earth with plus $2000 knives and Mcgizmo lights Oops

Great tool, and nice and small (and light)

I had to buy one to see what it was like, a lot of metal for ~£2, wondering why the hell the rubber “O” ring came with it until I read the listing again, “the rubber ring is for fastening 1/4 screwdriver”. obvious really. H)

Anyway, it holds a Torx bit, a bit wobbly and it needs a thumb on the end to apply pressure for any tightening or loosening actions, and the “O” ring will get lost, guaranteed. The bottle opener works. It will make a good P7 type suspension clip with the addition of a keyring, a heavy one!

Not bad shipping time, I got it 25th March, ordered on 16th March – 9 days is good enough for any of the Chinese sellers.

I’m still waiting on a digital scale from FastTech but it feels quite weighty.
73mm it certainly is, a slab of Stainless folded. Still not sure exactly what I’m going to use it for, keys already have a 1” monkey fist on them, best keyring ever!!

Do you think it would work as a small prybar, for things like tins of paint?

The tip is bevelled to about a 1mm edge from the 2.5mm thick tool, depends on the size of tin. Small model making Humbrol size probably not easily but 0.5L and 1L or 2.5L tins then yes. If the lid was on ultra tight like first opening from the factory then there’s only at most 45mm leverage. Anyway I thought that flat head screwdrivers were for, opening paint tins.

I’d say give it a go, it’s some more “stuff” and that’s got to be good.

Thanks! I usually use a flat screwdriver for paint. I just needed some justification. >.< I sort of fancy the second hexagonal one as a keyring object…

I’d really like a pair of the PB-9, the ones with the twin pulleys.
A hundred foot of paracord and a 4:1 mechanical advantage. Don’t know what I’d use it for but I feel I need it. :exmark:
I do know I couldn’t afford them, the paracord isn’t a problem.

Yup, they should include more video example or explanation for pulley applications. Hope he has patent his creation.

I’ve got the pocket widgy bar and the micro widgy bar, great for saving your knife tips from prying.

Something else I didn’t realise I needed until you posted. :bigsmile:
Not the orange and black ones, they might scare the little kittens away before I get my furry key ring.

The EDC gear Caribiner arrived today and it is built along the heavy is stronger line of thought. Just a couple of areas of concern, the weak spots are on the hook part of the carabiner and the spring gate. The hook would be better if it was more rounded instead of V shaped because they thought that another wrench size would be a good idea, the valley of the V looks like a stress crack waiting to happen. Shocked The gate spring it also crudely made of by pressing the piece out of flat materiel and leaving it as square section and roughly finished. Sad
The carabiner has been given a good buffing on the two flat faces and a quick buffing round the edges with no attempt to clean anywhere afterwards. Sad
All of this I feel is totally acceptable on a carabiner costing about £4.60 delivered. It’s a big lump of stainless steel. :bigsmile:
I wouldn’t want to risk my life on it but I’m still tempted to get another and see what I can use the 4X mechanical advantage for with a length of 550 paracord. H)
