    TT pocket tool

    Airport Friendly pocket tool..

    Hey there.. I've been carrying this little pocket tool for the past few weeks.. It's from TT Pocket Tools.



    Not expensive.. the one pictured is out of production but a very similar one is available. About 25 to 35 USD, shipped.

    Great for opening boxes, opening twist off caps, opening bottle caps, mini screwdriver, and has common size nut drives for about three nuts.

    Machined from 154CM Stainless Steel.

    Airport friendly.. I've carried it through a few domestic airports (ATL, IAH, LFT, MSY)

    Features: Twist Assist (for opening hard to open twist offs), Bottle Opener, Wire Stripper, Screwdriver
    Box Wrench SAE size for (I think 5/32, 3/16, 1/4, 5/16),
    Box Cutter, gripper (like attaching 550 chord to it and using the tool to pull a load of stuff up vice wrapping the chord around your hand)

    I've used the box cutter a lot, and it's quite useful. The little screwdriver works well but you're limited to light duty.

    The twist assist is excellent.. I used it a couple days ago jist to test its usefulness.. but normally I have no issues with twist off caps.

    Some of you may like a little gadget like this.

    I've been carrying the Gerber Shard keychain tool and haven't had any issues at airport security throughout the world.

    But, I got one of my Light My Fire titanium sporks confiscated in Turkey because of the jagged knife edge. What kind of damage can you do with that? I mean, they serve meals with knives on the airplanes. Gee

    The Gerber shard cost about $8.00 on Amazon, so I purchased 2 for backup.

    Hahaha.. now that's some kinda strict security.

    My little tool is very much like the Shard.. but made in limited batches by a guy in the US one at a time. Kinda like a custom job.

    One airport tried to confiscate my scissors (kiddie scissors with rounded edges), and my stainless steel straws. I did get my military p38 can opener confiscated at LHR
