Works® line of tools. While some think it's cute, it really is a hard-working carabiner tool with dozens of everyday uses.|
The adjustable wrench jaw opens to 1/2" so you can use it for all kinds of light repair and assembly jobs.
Thanks to the carabiner gate, the Guppie is easy to carry on a belt loop, D-ring, pack or rope. (But it is not a weight-bearing carabiner.)
The high-carbon stainless steel blade with a Razor-Sharp edge can be opened and closed with one hand using the blade slot.
The removable bit carrier is also a high-intensity LED light. It has two strong magnets to hold it securely to the Guppie's left side.
The stainless steel clip will hold the Guppie in your pocket or on gear, which gives a lot of versatility.
The Guppie makes a great little money clip, too, for those who like to keep a thin wallet.
One more trick: The Guppie carabiner detent will open bottle caps and metal jar lids.
U.S. Patent No. D576,002 and 6,223,372. Carabiner is non-weight-bearing. Magnets may harm electronic media.
Not as handy as I would have preferred... still a nice tool.
Received the item quickly, was as described, at a large discount. What more can you ask for? How about free shipping? Oh yea, I got that too!
Magnetic holding driver is weak3/6/2013
The magnets holding the various drivers detaches too easily. My intent was for it to hook with my keys. Unfortunately, I feel the magnet will not hold the drivers and I'll lose most of its usefulness.
Guppie 9-in-1 Multi Tool1/18/2013
The Guppie 9-in-1 Multi Tool is nice and compact for every-day-carry. You also leave it in your car or toolkit. Good to have for light use and tuning up. But, don't expect to use it for heavy projects. For that, you need to use fully, dedicated tools.
Works well, should last a long time and the price was good!
Great little tool1/3/2013
Works as described. Seems to be durable and of good quality.
As other reviews noted, item's reasonably well made. Just don't "gorilla torque" it in use. Magnetized holder for the screw bits attaches reasonably well. Again, careful in actions that would pry it off. Better to remove beforehand to protect. LED is so-so. Overall, it's a very handy item! Can't go wrong with the price.
Awesome knife/multi tool.
versatile interesting tool. expect to use mine hiking
Useful for the car12/28/2012
I saw the tool and thought it would be useful to have. I plan to purchase 2 more after receiving this one. The booklet that comes with it also shows other product line items. They now have a new customer; me.
Nice multi-tool and I am happy with the item as it will stay in a little box in my car, but the drill bits are on a separate piece that magnetically attaches to the side of the tool. It will be very easy to lose if you wear it on your belt. It is good for my purposes.
Good multi-tool to keep with backpack12/17/2012
This tool is handy for fixing minor repairs. I would not count on it to do big job, but if there's a screw loose needs tighten or a line needs cut, this tool will do the job. The adjustable range can be use to help fasten/loose a tight screw.
Nice stocking stuffer12/15/2012
Ended up being smaller then I imagined, bought it for a carry along tool for my sons that ride bikes, so small is good. The magnats on the bit holder feel like they will be to weak to keep it attached to the tool.
Seems a little expensive12/14/2012
For this product. Size is too small, not sure for functions.
The Guppie is well made and looks good. Its a little heavy so if you plan to add it to your keys to a belt loop, be warned. The wrench portion seems to work but seems loose. It's not a full on wrench so don't expect that but it'll do small jobs.
Great Tool for Bicyclist12/10/2012
This tool is great for minor and emergency repairs of bicycles on the road. The price is reasonable at $19.95 with free shipping.
This won't be the only tool in your mobile kit, but having an adjustable wrench is handy. The bit carrier is awkward to have on during use, as it impedes your grip when using the wrench, and the belt clip doesn't open far enough to clip it without looking. The blade is sharp,(for now) and there is ample torque as a screw driver... git ya one!!
Nice multi-tool to have clipped to your belt loop. Good selection of tools.
Small yet useful10/29/2012
It is really small, but really handy. I take it with me on trips and bought some for family and friends to use also when we camp or go on road trips. Makes a great stocking stuffer or just an everyday gift idea.
what a tool8/23/2012
This is a great multi tool. The only draw back is that if you are not careful you can end up losing the bit carrier and light. It sticks pretty well, but if rubbed hard enough it separates from the tool and you have to go looking for it...I have been blessed to find it each time. It is one solid tool and I cannot count the times I have used it...I also found extra batteries for the light since it got locked on once and ran down the battery. I use the light all the time by the way. Get one!
CRKT Multi Tool w/bit holder and light8/23/2012
This is an extremely well made item. You won't go wrong or regret anything when choosing this item. Thank you-sincerely, Randy.
Interesting tool. The carabiner clip is awkward to use with the removable bit holder/LED attached. LED is marginally useful. The tool is well made and feels solid. The wrench head is a welcome change from the plier head on most multi-tools. Easy to use & comfortable in the hand.
The Cricket is a simple but handy little tool. I have a couple Leathermans, but was looking for something i could throw around. This is perfect. Comes w a blade, adj wrench, and bits. Carabiner is handy. The bits are attached w/ a magnet, but it's a little bulky w it on. the bit set actually fell off a couple times, but it did take a little effort (bumped it hard). For the price, it's worth it.
As described and delivered quickly8/20/2012
Bought for a gift, so not sure about durability, but looks like it's built well.
Portable and handy8/20/2012
Only negative part is difficult to get the bits out.
More than a toy, less than a real tool8/16/2012
This is a nice little tool to have, but it is not a real tool, like a Leatherman or Gerber (my personal choice). As long as you realize its limitations, it is very handy and works well in conjunction with another tool, especially the wrench. It's small and light and can hook to a belt. The LED flashlight is small but decent. Especially good for using in an emergency to fix a computer.
Great handy tool.8/16/2012
Great tool to keep with you. Little on the heavy side. Magnets keep the bits on the frame. I am not sure for how long.
A Small Tool with Flexible Capabilities8/13/2012
Reasonable value for the price. Tool appears a little bigger - in the website photos - than it is in reality, but it does the job adequately.
Caught a Guppie8/13/2012
Always like CRKT. The Guppie is a nice addition to my EDC knives (yes plural). Especially on the playground (elementary school kids) there are a few people who do not like knives. They see the Guppie as a tool, which is how I see all knives. So a good tool that helps keep the peace, in a non-knife way, so to speak.
Good assortment of features, but heavier than I expected.
pretty happy with the product. a bit heavy and bulky, not made for a key chain.
Nice little tool for cheap but the wrench does not hold well. The bits are not held in by anything but friction so are a bit awkward but otherwise handy little tool to carry.
Emergency tool for your camelbak8/13/2012
Received tool and immediately felt the quality in the design and feel. Used it to tighten some screws in tight places the same day. Tucked it away immediately as my new emergency go-to tool in my camelbak. Look forward to having it with me on the Inca Trail next year for who knows what need.
