Has anyone ever broken a big ToolClip?
« on: October 21, 2019, 04:58:53 PM »
I used mine to hold a bolt while I got the nut loose with my MP600. I put some force on the sog, but not that much. Later I pulled the SOG out and found the jaws no longer line up! The fixed jaw has moved!

I actually use my SOG ToolClip occasionally... but man, this really drives it home that this is not a real tool, just a show piece :/

I don't know how they're held together, but seeing the pin size, it's entirely possible. Honestly, even though I have my MTs for light to medium leverage jobs, and even with say a Surge or ST300 (or MP600/Mr. Pinchy blunt nose),  if I'm torquing them a lot, and/or know I will; I reach for the large pliers. I think it's impossible to break a pair of 7" linesman's pliers. And that's using the thing as a hammer as well.

At least one thing, the Seki examples are made well. I had the V3 (China) MicroToolclip fall apart on me in less than four months. And besides, the quality really wasn't there. But, a Micro Tooclip V1 can take on stuff full-sized tools are best for.

This wasn't a micro, this was an original made-in-japan big toolclip. I liked it because it fit in the molle webbing loops in my backpack, and was easily accessible. No other multi I have is thin enough, and has a pocket clip. So it did duty there. Unfortunately, it  broke. $70 down the toilet. D'oh.

The thing is, I've put way more force on a Coast Pocket Mechanic, which is of similar riveted design, and didn't break it. So.... that's messed up.
