The Powerlock® uses compound leverage to allow miniaturization of traditional larger pliers by providing increased leverage and therefore minimizing the amount of hand pressure required, the company says. All tools are easy to access and lock in the open position, says the company. The patent-pending scissor only has spring tension in the open position, a safety feature. Other components include a serrated knife blade, saw, three flat screwdrivers, a Phillips screwdriver, can/bottle opener, triple-sided file, wire cutters, and other tools.
