Ready, Set, Grip! Designed to eliminate the two-handed fumbling required by other multi-tools, the SwitchPlier springs into action at the push of a button. In addition to the pop-out pliers, the compact aluminum case houses five locking stainless-steel components, including a can and bottle opener; small, medium, and large screwdrivers; a half-serrated blade; a three-sided file; and a quarter-inch socket drive.
