A mechanical engineer and inventor of gadgets from Doylestown, Pennsylvania, Brian Filko has found considerable success as product crowdfunding entrepreneur. His latest R&D prototype is bound to turn heads (no pun intended) among pocket tool carriers who are tired of constantly lifting and resetting wrench and screw attachments during tightening/loosening processes.
The world’s first ratchet tool that is able to fit on your keychain, the EverRatchet measures just 2.4 inches in length, 0.7 inches in height, and 0.2 inches in width. Thanks to Mr. Filko’s solid engineering background, this product allows for a great deal of control for jobs that require fast action, considerable work, and/or tremendous precision.
In addition to its handy ¼ ratchet, the EverRatchet includes a box cutter, a bottle opener, a scraper, a metric ruler, and even a fire flint. For maximum versatility, users can choose among seven wrench sizes and both Phillips and standard screwdriver bits.
