It looks like it gets pretty good reviews but maybe needs a little breaking in for the bits to click in smoothly.

For way less than half the price that would definitely be worth it :salute: :like:

Awesome find, Steve!  I don't even need another bit extender, but how can I not buy this for that price  :tu:

I have one of these I just got the other day, and have another on order. I have tried it on my new Charge+ and Wave+ and on an older Charge. It fits into the Leatherman pretty snug, and like a few others mentioned in reviews, you have to kind of break in the other end where the 1/4 inch bit goes as it is a little bit tight. I do not intend to use it for the Leatherman bits, and actually like that it holds the 1/4" bits snug as there is little wobble, but they are little bit difficult to remove!  :D

Might need to pick one up for my PowerPint kit. 
I tried to get one of the 700L ratchets for it but it was apparently lost in transit.

Bit Extender

what is the tool they are using it with in the pics? it looks like a rev or bolster maybe? with a bit exchanger?

They should do the same thing with the ratchet.

I took delivery of one of these yesterday (opened today)  :mail:
I don't have the LM version to compare it with but, for £9.99, I'm not complaining  :woohoo:

It fits awl of the tools that I have with the appropriate bit holder and takes the LM bits (and Vic' bits nicely)
Thanks for the heads up Steve  :hatsoff:

It almost looks like it says Leatherman Rev ??? May just be a graphics made up to showcase the tool without a lawsuit though :think: :dunno: :D

I found out only later (should have tested it) that it holds onto regular bits (1/4") like a vise. Works just as well for Leatherman bits but not so much for other things.

If its available outside of the USA its probably going to be far far cheaper than alternative, it may also be possible to tune it in order to fix the problem.
