The EDC Tool Roll is a feature on Jerking the Trigger in which we profile various every day carry worthy tools. The tools shown aren’t multi-tools but rather real tools, that by virtue of their compact size, light weight, usefulness, or unique functionality, can find a place in any range kit, emergency kit, or every day carry bag.
Feel free to comment on the tools that you carry so we can all learn! The discussion on these posts has been very valuable so far.
If you have been following The EDC Tool Roll for a while, you know that the Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition has been one of my favorite drivers reviewed to date. It has good reach while also being quite compact, holds 4 bits on board in a way that each one is accessible, is able to apply a lot of torque, and is made in the USA. There is a lot to like. It was hard to imagine how they could make it better…
Then they released a new version with a ridiculously clever bracket. This review will be mostly about the bracket since the tool itself hasn’t changed.
The bracket is molded from a semi rigid rubber-like material. It is about 4.25 long, 1.5″ wide (with tools installed), and about 1″ thick. It can hold both halves of the Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition, one on each side, along with a whopping 18 bits. The bracket has exterior slots for 12 bits, 4 bits are stored in the tool halves, and 2 more bits can be stored in either end of the bracket.
The entire package is far more compact than you would think a driver set this full featured can be. The bits are also amazingly well organized, visible, secure and accessible considering how compact it is. Each of the 12 bit slots on the broad sides of the bracket tightly grips the bit while still allowing you to read the size marking etched on the bits. The bits only slide out in one direction which further increases their security.
This bracket adds so much to the functionality of the Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition as an EDC or range bag addition. It carries so many bits in such a small package and can be so easily customized to suit your needs by swapping or adding bits. It is extremely compact yet still long enough to access an AR-15 grip screw or Glock magazine release spring. You can even leave the bracket behind if you need it to be ultra-compact and still be able to carry 4 bits!
Where to Buy:
There is a chance you may be able to find these in your local gun store or possible a bike shop. Fix It Sticks caters to both markets. However, I have never found them in a brick and mortar store. I’ve purchased my previous Fix It Sticks products from Amazon: Fix It Sticks Replaceable with Bracket on Amazon
These would make incredible stocking stuffers.
