Got mine today, so here are some observations:
The quality feels below Victorinox and Leatherman but better than really cheap no brand multitools.
I would say it feels similar to Ganzo Multitools. The movement of the tools feels gritty and the tool could do with some cleaning and oiling.
The handles flex significantly in use; definitely not a heavy use tool.
The pliers are quite thin as seen in the comparison picture with the Dime.
The handles are not even nicely aligned,
and the green rubberised plastic on the tripod legs (or the flaps) seems about to come off.
Tool selection is reasonable though I question the need to include two blades
on a tool with limited available space like the Steady (why not Fiskars scissors instead...?).
Also, they could have snuck a pair of tweezers or a pen in the plastic body.
Now the main reason I got this is to use as a camera tripod.
The tripod will support a small camera easily, provided the mount position is in the middle of the camera.
The problem, big problem, is that the pivot point, where the screw mount and the rest of the tool are joined with a metal ball (ball-pivot system) is not very tight, so unless the weight is perfectly distributed the camera will tilt to one side
, as seen here with a small Fujifilm.
It is a shame as there is no, visible, adjustment for the tightness
to account for heavier cameras or not perfectly centred attachment points. The ball sits in a plastic groove so maybe some systems will be looser than others.
The Steady can support an SLR
with a decent sized lens (I tried) without any problem, but the ball-pivot system will not. So the camera goes on but can not be positioned and will just tilt to one side. Proper tripods have ways to secure the pivot system but for some reason nothing like this was integrated in the Steady. Maybe you can stick a matchstick in there to tighten it…
