    I own this and it’s fantastic. However, I paid $9.99 at Lowe’s Hardware. $20 is too much, in my opinion.

    @jhon – Thanks for the info! Always better to save a few bucks on a gadget buy. I’m curious–have you ever tried to take it on a plane, and if so, what was the result?

    Andy:

    Not this one. I did (and do) often fly with this on my keyring:

    Also got that at Lowes (both were around the key maker kiosk). Same price as thinkgeek, but no shipping.

    Go go TSA!

    I’ve got three of these in various models and love them… but never really USE them. They just don’t quite cut it for what I need.

    But that is the great thing about America- choices and options!

    These things are well built, though! Swiss+Tech makes good stuff. They also make my preferred Utili-Key

    I own two of these and I never found a use for the “pliers,” all
    the other tools come in handy for those little jobs that pop up.
    If your a dad, you’ll need this for removing the screw on toy battery covers or to mend a broken toy.
    Came in handy to fix a phone jack too.

    I got both of mine as free gifts form ThinkGeek when buying other items and earning “Geek Points.”
