FixIt Sticks Compact Ratcheting MultiTool

Going out to the range and enjoying the shooting sports is an American tradition, but having a range day grind to a halt because of a loose sight or firearm malfunction can bring an unpleasant end to an otherwise great day. Having the right tools nearby to repair your gear can help stop this from happening, but bulky tool sets are hard to carry inside of your range bag and wind up getting left behind where they do you no good when you need them. 

Fix It Sticks is known for making modular firearms maintenance tools and torque limiters. To help solve this problem, they have introduced the Compact Ratcheting Multi-Tool, a tool kit designed for shooters and hunters of all disciplines.  This versatile new kit includes a Fix It Sticks Ratcheting T-Way Wrench that breaks down for storage, as well as fifteen hex bits and a mini pry bar. All of these items are contained in a compact, molded polymer tool holder, which makes this configuration extremely portable and easy to include in any range bag, emergency kit, or vehicle or ATV compartment. The selection of components inside the kit can handle many common maintenance and repair needs, not just for firearms but for many other applications as well.  

The Configurable Ratcheting T-Way Wrench has magnetic holders on all three ends that can accept any standard ¼ inch bit.  The reversible ratchet allows for quick tightening and loosening of fasteners, even when there is limited clearance.

Compact Ratcheting Multi-Tool includes the following parts, tools and bits:

  • Mini Pry Bar
  • Hex Bits: 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 5/64, 5/32, 3/32
  • Torx Bits: T6, T8, T10, T15, T20, T25
  • Slotted Screwdriver Bits: 5mm
  • Phillips Screwdriver Bits: #1, #2

The Compact Ratcheting Multi-Tool has an MSRP of $80, and more information about this product and other items from Fix-It Sticks is available at
