"No need to the purchase individual devices, this will requiere additional storage space". All you need is " SIDEWINDER " 8-in-1 multitool.
A versatile 8-in-1 multi-tool for fishing enthusiasts that want every tool possible at their fingertips.
Sidewinder is a functional 3D PRINTED multi-tool with 8 functions in 1. It’s overall size measures (4.5" x 1.65" x 1.25"). Durable due to its internal rib construction. Note that this is not meant for climbing nor for heavy loading.
- Carabiner Clip that enables it be clipped to a bag-pack, fishing vest, belt loop, etc.
- Line Winder Clip / a clip used to hold a standard line spool allowing the winding of new line on to a fishing reel.
- Flashlight with a super bright LED that works with 2 replaceable 3V (CR1220) button cell batteries with an output of about 10 lumens with a momentary on/off tact switch to conserve battery life allowing you to find anything or work on your tackle while fishing at night.
- Line Cutter with a surgical sharp captive blade for cutting excess material when setting hooks or cutting other materials like straps, bungee cords, cords, etc.
- Precision Screwdriver + Bit Set an 1/8" magnetized socket adapter for the precision screwdriver bit set with four magnetized bits, two cross and two flat bits and a magnetized holder to keep bits in place when not in use.
- 1/4" Hex socket Adapter an adapter that allows the usage of larger bits and even a 1/4" socket adapter to use any kind of sockets.
- 1/8" Hex Magnetized Socket when screwdriver is not in use the hole can be used to finalize the setting of your hooks, just tie your hook, place hook tip in the hole and pull the excess line to tightening your knot.
- Bottle Opener reinforced with a stainless steel shim for protection and durability. For hot and cold days while fishing, camping or when you are relaxing at home.
With it’s vast multiple use this can not only be used for fishing but also it lends itself to be used in any type of scenario desired by the end user. Just to name a few; it can be used during the day, night, fishing , camping, etc.
Sidewinder enables you to have access to eight tools at your finger tips. Competitive products don’t come even close to the sidewinder, you would have to buy 8 different products creating the necessity to have enough storage space to store all eight products. Sidewinder is an 8-in-1 compact multi-tool that allows you to have the necessary tools for a fishing trip or on any unexpected situation.
It’s simple design allows you to clip the sidewinder anywhere while taking advantage of its many uses, the one touch super bright LED flashlight, the bottle/can opener, the line cutting tool, the precision screwdriver with four bits, 1/4" hex adapter that allows you use a variety of tools, the 1/8" magnetized socket adapter for the screw-driver bits and to finalize the knotting of your hooks, and the hands free fishing line spool adapter that allows you to add new line to your fishing reel.
- These are some descriptive words I came up with for the Sidewinder Multi-tool; Innovative, Unique, Easy to Use, Cross Platform, Effortless, Bright, Use-full, Day or Night, Anywhere & Everywhere
Risks and challenges
No risks involved everything is hand assembled and tested by me, but depending on how many backers back me up I might be a little late in delivery because everything is printed, assembled and tested..
Eventually if everything goes well my plan is manufacture the product and approach big companies like Bass Pro, Cabela's, Dick's Sporting Goods, South Bend, Berkley, and many others..
