At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

While keychain multi tools are great for necessary fixes on the go—whether quick tuning a mountain bike for a downhill jam or just trying to open a can at the campsite—their limitations become glaring when needing to do fast and long-lasting work in a pinch.

Enter the EverRatchet: a keychain multi tool with a built-in ratchet mechanism smaller than your car keys. What sets this multi tool apart—and what impressed our team at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Snow Show—is the ability to keep the tool’s screw bit rigid when rotating, but when you go to reset the tool it flexes to allow for rotation around the bit. Basically, no more pinching and turning, leaving you with more time to do what matters in the outdoors.

The EverRatchet is the Keychain Multi Tool You’ll Actually Use

The EverRatchet isn’t just designed as a multi tool for the mechanically minded—despite being keychain-sized—the functions possible with this keychain multi tool pull far above its weight. It’s a bottle, box and can opener, a fire starter (a flint comes included), and can work as a wrench for seven different sizes.

After an Indiegogo campaign that sold 7,000 EverRatchets, Gear Infusion now sells the tools on their online store, in stainless steel and titanium versions.
