Screwpop keychain tool can slip through airport security

At my house, it seems like I can’t get away from screwdrivers. Every drawer I open has a couple of the tools crammed inside and I keep them in my desk too because it always seems that I need them constantly for one thing or another. It seems like every toy my kids own uses a screw to keep the battery door closed and any geek will tell you a screw driver is needed if you work on your computer to install hardware frequently.

A new tool for the geek that is on the go a lot has surfaced called the Screwpop 4-in-1 keychain tool. The keychain tool has a large round side that actually slips onto your keychain and is able to open that beer for you. A bottle opener is also something that the prepared geek never leaves home without. The maker claims the thing will make it through airport security as well.

The tool measures 0.435″ x 1.375″ x 3″ and weighs about an ounce. The screwdriver is a bit that has a Phillips head on one side and a flathead driver blade on the other. The inside of the keychain that holds the driver bit is a also a quarter inch hex nut driver as well when you take the screwdriver bit out of the holder section. You can order one minus the package for $4.95 or if you like to fight with a blister pack you can order in packed for $5.95.
