A gift from the heavens? That's a bit extreme. Did it fall from the sky? Of course not. This new multi-tool found its name through its parachute-like shape and its propensity to save the day.

Equipped with a whopping amount of practical design features, the Parachute offers 10 functionalities including a screwdriver, hex wrenches and bottle opener. Available in a Matte Silver or Matte Black finish, the stainless steel Parachute is durable though relatively small at 3.5" in height and 2" in width, and 4mm in thickness. Its slim and sleek design looks great whether it's worn on the go or is actually in use. An important device for outdoor use as well as a helpful tool in social settings.

Function 1: Belt Loop Hanger
The belt loop hanger offers the Parachute owner versatility in loosely fastening and carrying the device. Easily slide the Parachute into a pocket or through a belt loop. The open hook begins around the tip of the Parachute where the flathead screwdriver is located, and makes its way up and around to become the space above the bottle opener.

Function 2: Bottle Opener
No multi-tool would be complete without a bottle opener – and of course the Parachute delivers. The notch above the largest hex wrench serves to remove bottle caps, and this feature is sure to save the day whether at an outdoor event or out with friends.

Function 4: Hex Wrenches
The Parachute includes three common-size hex wrenches: 5mm, ¼” and ½”. This hex wrench triad not only adds functionality, but the diagonal arrangement runs parallel to the belt loop opening to support a sleek, modern appearance.

Function 5: 1.5” Sawblade
The sawblade offers small-scale cutting though the teeth do not pose the threat of unintentional cuts. Designed to minimize the risk to the carrier in transit, the teeth are still sharp enough to get a small job done when used in a sawing motion.

Function 6: Keychain Hole
Without question, the Parachute should be with you wherever you go. Easily attach it to a keychain using the hole directly above the screwdriver tip, or even in one of the hex wrench openings. Perfect for every day accessibility.
