Powerfix (LIDL) mini folding tool set
on: November 28, 2015, 03:36:38 PM


small keychain (ish) tool with :


No carrying pouch/sheath and no way to carry the sockets on the tool.



Star Wars style


All tools rotate round, apart from the hex tool. They can be used at various angles.




It feels solid and the tools require a bit of force to turn round, but they can still open in your pocket.

The hex key tool locking ear and the keychain attachment



Socket system





closed


Huge philips head screwdriver



3 philps and only one flat, but it is a nice size.

I used the ph2 philips and it worked fine

Pros:
cheap (3.99 Euros)
decent tool selection and more socket keys can be added
Feels solid

Cons:
Heavy for keychain carry
No carrying system/sheath for the sockets
The tools are not secured closed and could open in your pocket.

 :salute:

Shame there's no sensible way of carrying it, although I suppose that give you the ability to add a bit adaptor and bits, and anything else you need to supplement the tool load.

Do you have the dimensions and weight?

7cm x 3.5cm x 0.6cm. Closed

Weight  :facepalm: 109g for the tool, 146g for the tool with the socket set

That's one chunky monkey right there  :D maybe a reasonable companion tool for someone, though with that toolset, I'm not sure who  :think:

Seems to be one of those very general tools which might not quite have what anybody needs, a bit like the Swiss+tech micromax offerings  ;) at that price, I'm sure it will make quite a few sales though.

Thanks for the insight on this one D  :tu:

Why couldn't you use the hex tool for a pocket clip? Or the ring with a dangler?

You still have the issue of what to do with the sockets

You could place the tool inside a section of bicycle inner tube to prevent the individual blades from opening by accident.
