Screwpop 4-in-1 Keychain Tool

1Screwpop 4-in-1 Keychain Tool—a bottle opener, nut driver, and flat head and Phillips screwdriver

I am always a fan of small, compact and easy-to-carry around gadgets. Especially since packing lighter when traveling makes your life so much simpler, any tool that doubles (or in this case, quadruples) as another tool is an added bonus.

These are all features in the Screwpop tool. The small tool fits easily in your palm, and contains a nut driver, Phillips driver #2 and a flathead driver #2. The tool (meant to fit on your keychain or slipped into your pocket) also has a bottle openers—perfect for popping open those beachside beers on vacation.

While I overall liked the design of this small tool and liked the compactness, I did find the bottle opener (the most important feature in my book) to be a little difficult to use.

Because the tool is designed to be so small, it was difficult to get enough leverage using the short tool. I think extending the tool to be just an inch longer wouldn’t impede its compact design and would make it easier to use.

The being said, the bottle opener does work to an acceptable degree, so no major gripes about this product from me.

Seat-of-the-pants rating: 8 out of 10

I overall liked the simplicity and utilitarian nature of the Screwpop tool. I liked that it was super small and easily fit on your keychain, but I would complain the short length makes it hard to get much leverage when using it as a bottle opener. Other, than that, this is a great, useful travel gadget with a great price tag (only $4.95).
