DiResta Leatherman Clip

I have been carrying a Leatherman Tool for 25 years now. I use the SURGE most. It is the right size for me, and has the right combination of tools used often use. BUT I have always hated to have to cary the tool in a sheath I like the idea of keeping it my front pocket. It is designed to take an optional  clip, but this clip is not symmetrical and the tool often is hanging to one side. Not to mention the clip simply breaks off.  I thought of the mod to solve these problems. I use my TIG welder to attach a clip to both sides or handles of the tool. the 2 sides come together to form a larger curve to make hooking it easy and simple. The fact the curve of the clip opens and closes also gives you the ability to use it like a “caribbener” and clip it on to a strap for instance. I put scrap steel into the handle under the welds to act as a heat sink to keep from melting through. I am not the best welder but I get the job done. This is my second modded Surge I did for camera. my first has been holding strong for over a year. Enjoy

 :like: Nice mod, a very unique method to handle the Surge or a Super Tool for pocket carry.  I have not considered the larger tools for pocket carry and still will not.   I do sheath carry these tools at about the 4 o'clock position on right side.   

I am glad that works for you. :tu:

If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Seems like going a long way around the barn , to me . The heavies ( Surge , Supertool , and Swisstool , and MUT ) ateva tad bit chunky for pocket carry .

May I ask really what's wrong with the stock clip? I use it with both the Wave and Surge and have none of the aforementioned problems at all. It seems it causes more problems than it solves.  It looks bad, the warranty is voided, and you can't take it off when you don't want it.
