Victorinox XLT Fine Screwdriver- Angle
« on: May 12, 2019, 11:09:45 AM »
Hey all,

Lurker turned member here!

I was hoping to find the answer to something, from any Vix XLT owners.

I just purchased an XLT, and I’ve noticed that when the fine screwdriver on the back of the tool is opened fully, it actually opens a little past 90 degrees. Not by loads, but slightly. My standard Swiss Champ fine screwdriver opens to 90 degrees. This opens maybe 2-3 degrees past that. I’ve attached a photo.

Just wondering if this is normal on the XLT?

Thanks in advance guys and gals!

Mr. Vic, Welcome to  :MTO:


I just checked on my copy of XVAT and XLT, that the back spring small screwdriver basically do open straight, but if I stretch it a little, they do open more than just 90 deg.  I think it might have to do with the strength of the backspring.

Sorry for the late reply to you all!

Thanks everyone for the very warm welcome - really appreciate that.

Even more so however, I’m grateful for you to take the time to check whether this might be an anomaly, or just part of the design. I gather it’s the latter.

Thanks all of you!!!
