Flashlight 9-in-1 Tool is a bit awkward

by 6 years ago

I love multitools. I’ve got four or five of them floating around the house at any given time, including one on my keychain. And I do admit the idea of a flashlight storing a bunch of useful tools seems awesome to the nerdy Boy Scout who lives inside me.

The adult in me is just wondering how, exactly, you use this thing.

To be fair, most of the tools make sense here: The flashlight, a 3 watt LED setup; the emergency light, a blinking red LED; the knife, which is has both a straight and a sawtooth edge, and the hammer, which is just a steel pop out at the bottom. I guess even the bottle opener and the screwdriver will do in a pinch.

Everything else, well… look at the thing. It’s great that you’ll have a pair of scissors handy, but it’s like having hedge clippers with a linebacker glued to them. Similarly, if you’ve got a bottle opener, you are not opening a beer in an emergency. A can, yes, a beer, no, and nobody uses a bottle opener for anything else.

That said, this is only $22, so it might be worth throwing in your car, at least.
