After not being able to find a multitool that will satisfy everyday needs for person who likes to get things done fast. I designed this multi-tool that can help perform tasks that a regular Joe would perform everyday. Hence reducing need to carry heavy sets of multiple tools or looking for tools everywhere.
Major six features for MUL.TI.BINER are shown below but have many more applications.
- Precision knife
- Bottle Opener
- Can Opener
- Phillip Screw Driver
- Flat Head Screw Driver
- Hex Wrench
- Key chain
We went through several ideas before settling for idea for making carbines. First iteration was built without knife and flat head drivers. In second iteration the precision knife and flat head screw driver/can opener were included. Edges were also smoothed to removed sharp edges and for aesthetics. Following renders and cad images will give more insights about the design process.

SETUP WHERE ALL I SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS DESIGNING THIS CARABINER
Build with world best corrosion resistant and strength to density ratio metal.
I am Mechanical Engineer with more than 7 years of experience in engineering design, manufacturing and industrial automation. Out of which last 4 years I have spent in defense industry. My passion lies in building consumer products that solves pain point of masses. And would like to devote my full time to building products that touch lives of people around me. This small project is my first shot at evaluation if going full time on building consumer product will be viable option for me. So you are not only backing me for this project but also backing my enthusiasm to bring more cool products to you.
Sales Taxes in Ontario, Canada will be filed by me but for other countries and states consumer will be responsible for taxes and custom fee etc.
Risks and challenges
Design and pro-typing have been done keeping in mind Design for manufacturing. So there are low risk of issues during manufacturing.
However unforeseen circumstances can always occur so we have given ourselves and extra month in case of issues with material supply, manufacturing process or fulfillment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
