I don't understand the negative reviews on this tool. It's perfect for what it is intended for. It is made for those times when you're not near your tools and you need to make a quick fix. It all but vanishes when you put it on your key chain so it never feels in the way. I have had many times when I got a splinter and was never near tweezers. Now I always have them. I have had many occasion where I thought "I'd tighten that real quick if I had a screwdriver." and then never got around to it. Now I always have one. The bottle opener works great. I can't think of anything bad about this tool when used properly. Are you going to work on your car with it or do major home repair? Of course not. It's for those times when you're out somewhere and thought "I wish I had a (insert tool here)"...With this tool, most likely you will!

This cheap piece of steel is novel and ridiculous for a keyring multitool. While these things often come down to feature packed bottle openers for most, this one stretches it a bit far with a whatever they can cram on as a "function". The file and tweezers are the absolute worst. The bottle opener works, but it's awkward due to the other tools and thin edges poking into you. It's hard to use just about any function of this tool because of the complete lack of ergonomics.

The pros are that it fits over a key, takes up little room and it weighs almost nothing. Get a Swiss Army Knife or a solid keychain tool with 2-3 good features rather than 8 compromising ones.

Tried this on my keychain as the knifeless multi tool I would bring on flights, trips to schools and more secure buildings. After a few months I still have mixed feelings. First of all I would say that the only great part of this is how in weight and space it disappears on your keychain until you need it. That's why I feel odd trying to take it off. What would be the point? Any way after some bad public relations problems with he key tool(Mainly with the tsa and colleagues)I have ordered the Gerber shard and will be retiring this tool for now. Here's why. This is one of those cool designs where from really has to follow function to make it good. In the key tool, I see some issues in that department. The screwdrivers are weak and don't have much torque from the design. Also no Phillips, which you would think would be okay, but according to my glasses wearing friend, the Phillips screw is on most eyeglasses. The bottle opener is one of the hardest I've come upon (Worse than the squirts) and whenever your using it feels like the tool will snap. Ahh signs of quality. As for the nail cleaners and the file, I'm not a connoisseur but other opinions who know better frown upon them. Also of all the tools, the nail cleaners are the ones that poke you the most. Also I will say the same about keychain whistles and nail clippers and tweezers, do you really want a product you'll use on your body exposed to whatever is on your keys or in your pockets? Finally, the thread cutter and the tweezers. First of all, the tweezers cannot be used while the device is attached to the key. Not great. And the thread cutter looks threatening to some and doesn't cut much. The only thing its good at is loose threads and those plastic tags that come on clothes. Though bot are more easily fixed via scissors. So after all this here's my verdict: While it looks cool and disappears on your keys, Its strength and functionality fail big-time. To someone looking for a tool of this type I would recommend a single piece of steel tool like the shard or brewzer. Hands down.

This little tool does a number of things. I can't even begin to describe how handy it has been. I use it daily to pop open my charging cover on the Galaxy S5. It also works great for slicing into packages and tightening eyeglass screws.

Good quality on this product. I think it will last a long time. Have had it for a month.

Good for those little tings on your key chain EDC.
Recommended for all who think a bigger tool is to much to carry, but not a tool that cowers all needs.

Bought these as part of christmas gifts for my dad, brother, uncle and grandpa. They all loved them and thought they were very clever and convenient.

I have no real complaints. It does pretty much what it says. $8 seems pretty pricey for a keychain tool, akin to a Gerber Shard, but not thick steel or titanium. I got this because I was tired of being caught without a bottle opener on work lunches at local food carts, and while I've only used it twice so far, it's worked as it should without feeling too flimsy or having to be removed from the keyring it's on. The biggest sell is that it really does add no weight to the keys in my pocket, and it's easy enough to find a key I rarely use to keep it on.

I've had this key multitool for a while now, and it's nice to have. One thing to note is that it actually comes with a key, a plastic, cheap key. I promptly threw that part away and put this over one of my lesser used keys and it's been nothing but handy. I've tightened up small screws on my medic unit, pulled splinters out of my hands, opened beer, and cleaned under my fingernails with it. It's a smart tool and it gets a lot of compliments.

Works as intended, I use it mainly as a bottle opener and eyeglass screwdriver.

The tweezers - to use them you must remove the key from the ring, which can be a PITA. But they DO work.

All and all, neat idea. Glad to have an original rather than a cheap copy.

works with a standard Kwickset lock type key. Part of my EDC set with a SOG Key / Knife.
