The Orbitkey Multi-Tool is a low-profile microtool that’s great to have on hand at home or on the road. We’ve been testing it alongside the Orbitkey Key Organiser for more than a year and have been finding it incredibly useful in many situations.

Since it’s supersmall, this product blends in nicely with your keys and may be a bit less likely to be flagged at the airport than some of the larger multi-tools on the market. The Orbitkey Multi-Tool is listed as TSA compliant on the Orbitkey website, though your mileage may vary depending on the airport and where you’re at in the world.

This multi-tool is six different tools in one: a bottle opener, a multi-size hex wrench, a box cutter, a flat-head screwdriver, a pryer and a file. We’re happy to report that the box cutter tool has opened just about every package we’ve ever received here at Pack Hacker—and that’s a lot of packages.

The flat-head screwdriver piece, meanwhile, has been great for tightening up loose door handles at Airbnbs and out in the field for performing some on-the-go maintenance with our photography gear.

And the bottle opener feature? Let’s just say we’ve given it a thorough testing.

Initial Usage

Condition: Excellent

  • Integrates nicely with the rest of the Orbitkey suite.
  • Bottle opener and box cutter function work quite well and it’s nice to have this near keys where it’s handy.

Great! This multi-tool is already coming in handy around the office for packages and on-the-go camera repairs.

Going strong. No major complaints, though the flat-head screwdriver could be a bit larger.

Still opening boxes and bottles like a champ. Haven’t used the hex or file as much.

All good. The hex wrench is a bit hard to use, though.

Noticing some slight wear and tear around the metal loop attachment point but it’s not affecting usability.

Still going strong and being used daily.
