I’ve come to believe that 80% of the contents of Batman’s utility belt can be found online in the form of multi-tools. I’ve covered several of these nifty items in the past – and here’s another. And as before . . .well, hell, I like it. Call me a multi-tool junkie.
The first is quite obvious: screwdriver/hex wrench. Without the driver tip (which is both a flat head and a Phillips), the end of the Screwpop acts as a ¼” hex nut driver.
But what makes this little sucker stand out is the built-in bottle opener.
While I’m no advocate of drinking and driving, I must admit wishing I had a handy bottle opener on me—particularly at the end of a long road trip. Since the Screwpop is small enough to fit on a key chain (it is pretty much the size of a standard key), there’s no reason to ever be without the means to open a drink. Even Batman would have no problem putting a Screwpop on his key chain—right next to the keys to the Batmobile (and Batboat, Batcycle, and Batcopter).
Even superheroes need to pop open a cold one now and then . . .
