SHOT Show Preview: Fix It Sticks

A frustrated cyclist’s tools fit the firearms market.

During Range Day at SHOT Show 2016, Guns&Tactics found a booth tucked away in the back. There, we found a tool that has a place in everyone’s toolbox. The Fix It Sticks is a compact set of tools containing several screwdriver heads, torx heads, and hex heads, plus something special: miniature torque limiters. The limiter prevents over-torquing of small screws and nuts. Like scope mounts.

Fix It Sticks were the brainchild of Brian Davis, an avid cyclist who became frustrated with the common multi-tools he carried in his pocket.

After experimenting with numerous tools, he found they all had the same problems — compact tools gave you no leverage, and tools that gave you leverage were not compact enough. He figured there had to be a better way.

Numerous sketches, prototypes, and manufactured parts later — the Fix It Stick was born!
