Finding a small everyday carry multi-tool that can easily fit on your keychain and comes also with a ratcheting mechanism, is hard.
Or exactly, was.
“This manufacturing method uses a computer-controlled machine to pull an electrified wire through the sheet of metal resulting in very precise components. After cutting, the parts are twice tumbled and a glass/polymer finish is applied to keep it nice and new every time you reach for it.”
Not only materials but even the design is something you should consider. Thanks to the Dynamic Ratcheting Beam of the EverRatchet tool, you can easily screw and unscrew even the large fixes without lifting and resetting the tool between each turn.
How is it possible?
The dynamic ratchet beam stays rigid when you are rotating the bit, but when you decide to reset the tool, it flexes out of the way, allowing the EverRatchet to rotate around the bit.
How much force can EverRatchet handle? The stainless steel version of EverRatchet can hold 20 in-lbs on its dynamic ratchet beam (20lbs, 1 inch from the center of rotation)!
Impressive, what do you think?
EverRatchet is described as a multi-tool, so what else it can handle?
It has a built-in 1/4″ ratchet, a box opener that is TSA compliant, a bottle opener with eagle grip, and custom-sized Flint2Go emergency fire flint. And the good news is that any standard 1″ 1/4 drive bits will work with EverRatchet and can be stored in the tool. Important: EverRachet is TSA safe with the Phillips bit. The Fire Flint does not meet the TSA guidelines and must be left at home prior to TSA security.
