The Cranker on Kickstarter
There’s that old adage about having the right tool for the job. Luckily the Cranker helps make sure that you have the right tool for a multitude of jobs. The Cranker sets itself apart from others not only due to the material it is made out of, but the variety of tools it offers while still being able to be conveniently attached to your keychain.
Aside from the cool factor, the Cranker is made out of titanium for an incredibly lightweight yet durable tool. Titanium offers a lot of benefits as a material and it is easy to see why it’s the perfect choice for the Cranker due to the low weight and high strength. A stainless steel option is also available, but who doesn’t love titanium? It also offers its own unique mix of tools compared to many other multi-tools. The range of tools offered by the Cranker includes two different flathead screwdrivers, a cap opener (for those well-earned beverages), a spoke wrench, 1.2” saw blade, a holder for ¼” hex bits, the hole for key chain attachment, a mini pry bar, nail pullers, 8 different hex wrenches in common sizes, a scraping tool and a 2” (5cm) ruler.
The variety of tools found on the Cranker makes it useful for more than one discipline. Where a multi-tool that only has hex wrenches will not help you cut items, the Cranker addresses shortcomings such as this and allows the Cranker to possibly replace a multi-tool you already have and then supplement the same functions in a more capable way. The Cranker’s simple design does not feature any moving or folding parts which helps reduce the chance of the tool breaking and rendering it less useful.
As hinted at in the title, the Cranker is currently being featured on Kickstarter and ends on July 14, 2015 at EDT. For more information on the Cranker please visit: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/817146541/meet-the-cranker-a-small-titanium-multi-tool-with.
It looks like it could also easily fit in a jersey pocket, wallet, or even a neoprene phone case behind your phone.
