The FIXR has a carabiner-type clasp that clips onto a set of keys, a backpack, or even a belt loop. The pivoting disk stacks another level of utility and modularity that outdoes many one-piece tools. Besides screwdrivers and hex wrenches, the gold-colored titanium disk ticks open to reveal a carbon steel cord cutter. There are 20 functions in all.
– The cord cutter is sharp and removable.
– This tool has more functions than some multi-tools three times its size.
– Great, small companion to a full-sized knife
– Leather pouch seems a little unnecessary for a tool this small, and brings up the price
– Can be awkward to grip during certain applications
– The machining around the 3/8 to 9/16 wrenches didn't offer best contact with a bolt head
