Sadly, The plastic case this came in was more useful to me
on July 28, 2015
I bought this because I wanted a weird key chain gadget. That's what this is. If you REALLY need the tools this KeyTool provides, I suggest an actual MultiTool with pliers that unfolds. This is more of a novelty item. I also thought that the tools would preform better then they did.
The gold key that this comes with is cheep plastic. Just toss it. You are going to want to put the KeyTool on a key that you rarely use because to use that key, you now have to flip the KeyTool off every time.
The bottle opener works, but not great. It's awkward to hold to be able to open your bottle with out poking your finger/hand. After opening just one beer, I gave up on using this and went and got a bottle opener from the kitchen. A regular bottle opener works so much better. If you don't have one though, the KeyTool bottle opener does remove bottle caps.
The nail cleaner just doesn't work. It's too small and not shaped right. It just stabbed under my nails when I tried to use it. There's no way it will slide under my nails to clean anything and I have short nails.
The nail file. If you chip your nail, this would probably fix it enough. I didn't chip my nail to test it, but tried it out on one of my nails and it filed it okay. It's a thick file though.
The tweezers work. It takes a bit of a squeeze to use but they're not terrible. I would take the KeyTool off your key chain to use them though.
The thread cutter works. Does what it says it does.
The screwdrivers are okay. Probably the most useful thing here. Your other keys may get in the way so you may want to remove it from your key chain to use.
The quick release clip. The clip is not very quick to release. It's very tiny and hard to open up to release the KeyTool.
The KeyTool's Plastic Case (see attached photo). I actually really like the case that this KeyTool came in. It's clear hard plastic with some rubber around where it opens and closes. The documentation says it's weatherproof. It's a really nice case for storing small objects in. I'm surprised at the quality.
Conclusion: Every tool on this KeyTool works (except one), but preforms poorly. If you find that you actually need to use these tools often, you would be better off to get a real MultiTool with pliers that unfolds.
Also, to use some of these tools, it's best to remove the KeyTool from your key chain. Doing that, you have a chance to loose the key that's attached.
