Want to add even more versatility to your Fix It Sticks? The clever little tools already provide a number of necessary tools in t-handle form, and the Replaceable Edition took it to the next level. No longer confined to the four bits installed from the factory, the Replaceable Edition can run any standard 1/4″ bit which opens up a lot of possibilities from your local hardware store. This new option though, you’ll only find through Fix It Sticks…

We got a glimpse of some tire lever prototypes a while back, but like most things, developing the final version took some time. Instead of just simply slipping on to the end of your Replaceable Edition Fix It Stick, the engineered plastic tire lever is molded around a special 1/4″ metal bit. That bit then fits into the socket of the Fix It Stick like any other tool bit which supports the tire lever and essentially turns it into a plastic tipped, steel core tire lever.

Once installed, the tire lever can be used with one half of the Fix It Stick so you can have two tire levers if needed. Overall, it looks like a simple way to cram more (useful) tools in your pack without taking up much space. The levers are sold for $9.99 per pair, though Fix It Sticks is offering them for 30% off until the end of the year if you grab the code from their facebook page.

and so how does the end clip onto the spokes? Also Tyre levers are a disposable item as they break so often.

I work in a shop environment and go through at least 100 flat fixes before breaking any levers. If you are breaking so many, it might be user error…. just sayin…

Actually, last time a remember breaking one was last year around march… so a bit more that 100 tire changes.
watch a youtube video.

Really? My Michelin/Conti ones last forever…. pretty much unbreakable.

The Pedro’s levers are nigh indestructible. On the other hand, the park tool and bontrager ones are brittle in my experience.

That looks pretty uncomfortable on the hand.

2 plastic tire levers weigh nothing. This is just dumb.
FixitSticks finally made a bracket for WB cages. I finally tied use it. Had to be modified to use since the simple plastic clips were incorrectly sized. Literally the only thing they needed to design.
I don’t have much faith in their ability to make these actually fit properly.

CHase. It’s not all about the weight. Also the cage clip literally works perfectly with any stick manufactured since 2014.
