Fix It Sticks Universal Choke Tube Wrench

The Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition just took another step toward being a universal gun tool (and possibly world domination). Their new Universal Choke Tube Wrench allows shotgun shooters to install or uninstall just about any brand or size choke tube. It attaches to the Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition like any other 1/4″ shank bit which means it can also be used with other bit drivers.

New Bits from Fix It Sticks: Bottle Opener, Mini Pry Bar, and 1911 Bushing Wrench

Fix It Sticks just rolled out three new bits for use with their tools or any other tool that accepts standard 1/4″ shank bits. The new bottle opener bit is relatively straight forward and self-explanatory. The 1911 bushing wrench is designed to depress the plunger and allow the user to rotate the barrel bushing for removal. The Mini Pry-Bar can be used for light prying, removing nails, and more. It also features cutouts that allow it to be used as a wrench for 1/4″, 5/16”, and 3/8” nuts.

KDG Fix It Sticks SCAR Tool Kit

Kinetic Development Group worked with Fix It Sticks to create a kit specifically for the SCAR.

We asked FIX IT STICKS to make us a one-stop tool kit for maintaining the FHN SCAR, and here is the result: A highly modular, multitool system that features a variety of specialty tools for maintaining and servicing your favorite firearms! The kit comes with standard 1/4” bits and two torque limiters for precise adjustments. These kits are designed for tightening down scope rings, mounts, action screws, M-LOK accessories, SCAR Barrel Change Screws, etc. in the field or at the range. The trademark FIX IT T-handle provides several modes of use, to gain leverage and reach hard to access parts like AR type pistol grip screws. Combine shop level function with the lightweight and portability of this field kit, and never find yourself wishing for a tool left back on the work bench when issues arise at the range. The entire kit comes organized in a black zippered ballistic nylon case, with enough room to add additional tools, lube, thread locker, etc.

Fix It Sticks Glock Tools

Fix It Sticks is now offering Glock specific bits for use with their tools (or any other tool that accepts 1/4″ shank bits). They are offering two different bits include a punch for disassembly and a front sight nut driver. The front sight tool is particularly interesting because it is magnetic and has a ledge to prevent the bolt from dropping into the tool.

Fix It Sticks Magnetic Patch

Fix It Sticks’ Magnetic Patch is just what it sounds like… a magnetic patch. It can be attached via hook and loop to several of the cases that Fix It Sticks offers for their tool sets or to your own case/matte/range bag if you have a loop material field.

The idea behind the patch is simple and handy. If you are working with screw driver bits and small parts, you want those parts to stay put as opposed to migrating off of whatever surface that is serving as your mobile gunsmithing bench in the middle of a carbine course/range trip/hunting excursion. The Magnetic Patch serves to hold those bits and parts while you work.

Fix It Sticks also cleverly only applied the hook material around the perimeter of the back of the patch. This creates a lip around the back of the patch so that it can serve as a small tray if that is a more convenient way for you to work.

The only difference between the two kits is your choice of a hard case or MOLLE compatible soft case.

The kits include:

  • Set of Fix It Sticks
  • Bolt Carrier Group Scraper
  • Metal Pin Punch
  • Castle Nut Wrench
  • Bronze Scraper
  • Steel Pick
  • Non-Marring Plastic Pin Punch

  • Set of two bit adapters to allow for 8-32 threaded components

Several of the items in the kit are AR-15 specific tools developed by Fix It Sticks for use with their tools or any tool that accepts 1/4″ shank bits. If you already own a set of Fix It Sticks or another driver you can order the AR-15 specific bits separately.

Fix It Sticks Replaceable Version – Shooting & Hunting Edition w/ Bracket

If you follow our regular feature, The EDC Tool Roll, you’ve seen the Fix It Stick Replaceable Version before. It is one of my all time favorite EDC-worthy tools and a mainstay in my range bag. I didn’t think I needed another one until I saw the new version that comes with a slick holder.

The original Fix It Sticks Replaceable comes in a very nice nylon pouch but this new version comes with a newly designed bracket that holds the tool and up to 18 bits (14 on the bracket, 4 on the tool sections) in a compact package. It would be perfect for dropping in your EDC or range bag.

Fix It Sticks are already a great, American made tool. This new bracket makes them even more attractive.

The EDC Tool Roll: Triple Seven Gear Micro Kit

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.


We’ve spent time talking about some tools. It’s about time we started talking about the tool roll.

Contents listed at end of post…

I use a Micro Kit from Triple Seven Gear as my EDC Tool Roll. I’ve used Triple Seven Gear products going all the way back to their original Mini Kit Mk-7 and own at least one of everything they make (and several of a few products).

The Micro Kit is ideal for me because the size is just right – small enough to carry but big enough to fit what I need. It is compact enough to fit in a coat pocket, back pocket of jeans, or even some front pockets. It does not require a large cargo pocket to be carried. In spite of that compact size, the Micro Kit can pack and organize a lot of tools.

It folds to about 4″ x 6″ when closed and can be secured with a simple elastic loop. I like that there are no zippers or hook and loop to limit how I stuff the pouch. When open, it lays completely flat and gives good visibility to the tools contained inside. I can even turn it “inside-out” so that it fits in my pocket but still offers access to the tools.

The elastic loops can fit a variety of tools and anything that does fit well in the loops can be stashed in one of the pockets. The clear vinyl window is particularly useful for stashing small items that you want to be able to see.

You can check out the Micro Kit (or Mini Kit Mk-7 if you need a larger version) at Triple Seven Gear.

The EDC Tool Roll: Replaceable Fix It Sticks

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.


The genesis of this series, The EDC Tool Roll, was my frustration at my multi-tools for never quite being the right tool. Sure, they will do a lot, but sometimes you just need a real tool which started my quest to build a pocketable tool kit. My search for a screw driver that was both a real tool and yet still compact enough to work in this pocketable kit lead me to Fix It Sticks.

The Replaceable Fix It Sticks are comprised of two separate sections that can be used individually as a small driver for tight spaces or together to form a t-handle driver. Each of the two sections can hold a standard 1/4″ bit at each end meaning I can keep 4 bits of my choosing on the tool, ready to use. I also carry a small assortment of bits for the fasteners that I am likely to encounter.

I tried several other drivers before settling on the Fix It Sticks. Most interchangable bit drivers were too large. Others were pocketable but lacked reach or were too small to apply a decent amount of torque comfortably. The Fix It Sticks, with their take-down format split that difference beautifully. They pack small but function much like a full size tool.

Fix It Sticks are made in the USA and available in a number of configurations. I like the Replacables for EDC and purchased mine from Amazon.

They also makes these in kit form specifically for shooters with slick options like in-line torque limiters. Those kits are available at Tactical Works.

Of all the tools I added to my kit, the screwdriver was the hardest to finally settle on so I will be interested to hear what you carry. If you have an EDC worth driver that you prefer, comment below.
