Short Review

This is a fun little item.  Seems to work well, and is a fun attachment.

Long Review

What’s Included

  • Nitecore NSH10

Package and Manual

Build Quality and Disassembly

Construction on this little guy is great.  It’s a pretty typical of a gated carabiner.  Except in this case, it’s titanium!

There are a bunch of angles on here, for all sorts of action.  There is a bottle opener, a can opener, a screwdriver….  Every angle offers something.

Size and Comps

Officially 49mm x 25.5mm x 3.8mm, and 7.5g.  It’s a small item!

Retention and Carry

It’s a carabiner, so it works like a carabiner.  Not for climbing obviously, but great for keys.

Typically this will be placed on a belt loop or similar for carry.  There isn’t really any other great way to carry this.

User Interface and Operation

Mash the gate to clip this on something, or keys into it.  Pretty straight forward.  The gate has good tension.

The point for use as a screw driver is intended for flat head screws.

The bottle opener works as do other bottle openers.  There’s a nice point for good gripping of tops.

Conclusion

What I like

  • Small and light.
  • Easy to operate gate
  • Titanium!
  • Low cost

What I don’t like

  • No way for locking the gate
  • Leverage isn’t great for opening bottles
