5 in 1 Carabiner tool – REVIEW

I came across this carabiner survival tool randomly, when I was browsing daily deals. My girlfriend and I rock climb, and I go hiking/camping quite often, so it seemed like a handy item to have.

Unfortunately, I made a mistake of ordering from the daily deal listing, thus paying $4.99…but enough about me, how was your day?

The 5 of the 5 in 1 of this tool:

  1. Carabiner with a locking latch;
  2. Flathead screwdriver;
  3. Phillips head screwdriver;
  4. Bottle opener;
  5. Knife;

The good. 

  • Unlike most cheap knives, the blade on this one was quite sharp; and for my needs it did not need re-sharpening just yet;
  • The blade has a few rugged teeth (a strip of about 1 inch / ~2 cm) for cutting rope, etc.;
  • The tool is small and lightweight – only 2.8 oz. / 80 gram, and is made of aluminum alloy;
  • The blade and the screwdrivers are secured properly, and they do not shake upon use;

The bad.

  • The carabiner looks a bit flimsy, and I wouldn’t trust it with anything more than 25-30 pounds (~10-15 kg);
  • The screwdrivers are a little difficult to take out, but that can be addressed with an Allen key;

Overall, I think that this is a worthy item for its price. I keep mine in the top case of my motorcycle for the easy access.
