The Michelin Tool
on: June 25, 2014, 11:26:35 PM
A good friend who has helped me get a few items south of the border found an interesting tool and thought I would be interested. Is the Pope Catholic? Of course I was interested, especially when I laid eyes on it.

Meet the Michelin Tool, a premier automotive 14 in 1 multi-tool.



You don't see that many adjustable wrench multi-tools out there. This multi-tool features an adjustable wrench, emergency glass breaker, twist switch LED flashlight, needle nose pliers, strap cutter, Phillips screwdriver, multi-function blade with 4, 5, and 6 mm box wrenches, serrated wire stripping edge, flathead driver, and bottle/can opener.



The Michelin tool is very ergonomic and comfortable. One side is contoured and decked out in comfortable rubber with the Michelin logo.



This is solidly built and sturdy. The folding tools do not lock howerver, and the flashlight placement needs better thinking placement wise.

Great find! This shares design ideas with the Ranchhand.

I believe these were sold at Costco.

I'm still trying to NOT buy one of these and you lot aren't helping (as usual)  :pok:   ;)

You really are a bunch of extremely skilled enablers  :D

I actually quite fancy one of these - not that we'll them here in the UK  :facepalm:

I have a soft spot for anything that isn't needle nose - pretty bored with needle nose these days.
I don't claim to know it all, but what I do know is right.
