Woho WOKit carabiner multitool for cyclists and skateboarders

Is that a WOKit in your pocket?

The new Woho WOKit is ratcheting its way through Kickstarter with this carabiner multitool that fits a surprising number of tools into a compact and utterly useful package.

By using a 6061-T6 forged alloy carabiner as the handle with an integrated 1/4″ ratchet, it allows for quick bit changes and a heat treated chromoly steel wrench to be locked into place for adjusting pedals and much more. The design has been iterated upon since August 2013, and it shows with a multitude of clever touches. For example, a soft, single-sided Velcro strap keeps it all snugly together without any of Velcro’s scratchiness that could snag on jersey pocket material. And a thin wire loop lets the accessories compartment dangle freely if you’re hipstering it to your belt loop, to which you could easily add a second loop for house and car keys.

The base set comes with the allen/torx keys shown at the top. A larger set includes the socket set, which is aimed more at skaters or those just wanting a versatile tool to keep around the house.

  1. Does everything need a bottle opener on it? This one is in a spot that looks like it’d make it constantly catch when you don’t want it to.

  2. @pancakes I agree totally they should make this tool so that you can clip it on to something. You know because all the pictures of it in use are in a seatbag, near a tube……….

  3. A quick zip with a hacksaw and file would take care of the bottle opener. I think Beer drinking and bicycles is a “thing”. I think…

  4. Yes. Everything has to have a bottle opener on it.

    That said, what is the deal with taking every tool on every ride? Your tool loadout should reflect the bike you’re riding, and the support you have. Ride around a city? How about a bus fare in your wallet? Job done. Riding a road bike into the hinterlands for 50 miles? Basic micro tool, flat kit, cell phone. Do you really *want* to effect major repairs on your bike by the side of the road?

  5. Looks like a first gen idea, which is fine – you have to start somewhere.
    I carry an old, small multi-tool (allen wrenches and screw drivers). I don’t even take a torx wrench for disc bolts (they’re Loctite’d in, so they’re not going anywhere). I carry a quick link for the chain (no need for a breaker). Tube and pump – tiny patch kit in case I puncture more than once (still not on tubeless ;-). So this seems like total overkill to me…
