There's no shortage of options out there when it comes to portable multi-tools, but that doesn't mean there's no room for more. Wrenchit is a lightweight multi-spanner with 10 different interchangeable wrench bits - including spoke wrenches and a bottle opener - that's designed for making small-scale bolt adjustments on the go.

The Wrenchit consists of a 13.4 cm long and 2.3 cm wide (5.3 in x 0.9 in) stainless steel sleeve which houses the interchangeable wrench heads (which add 2 cm to the length when loaded). The combined weight of the sleeve and 10 wrench heads is just 100 grams (3.5 oz), making it lighter than your standard mobile phone. While it may lack a little in leverage, it shouldn't suffer from the slippage issues you get with a shifting spanner and should slide into hard to reach spaces, making it useful on small, fiddly jobs.

The tool includes 6-13 mm wrench bits and a wing nut wrench, along with specialized Shimano spoke wrenches. The chassis holds five wrench bits at a time, with the remainder riding along in the pouch. There's also a fitting for that ubiquitous and seemingly essential addition to all pocketable multi-tools – a bottle opener.

Following on from success with its Tool Pen and Tool Pen Mini, Mininch is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the Wrenchit. Pledges begin at US$30 for the Bike Set, which includes five wrenches and the spoke wrenches, with the pledge for the full set at $38.

The campaign has reached 10 times its US$10,000 goal with 16 days remaining. If all goes to plan production is expected to kick off in June, with deliveries to begin in August.

This would be a perfect tool to market to motorcycle manufacturers. Replaces about half the standard toolkit that comes with every motorcycle... that is, if they're still including them. Any biker would take one look at this, and decide it's required equipment.

I'm sorry I am a Biker and this cute little toy will Not find it's way N 2 my tool pouch,maybe on my bicycle butt it wouldn't be of much use on my Harley-Davidson,the Majority of the bolts/nuts are SAE & larger than that 13mm, I don't even know what size that is in American........The girl in the Video would be Welcome to ride me & my bike though,I'm pretty sure she could keep us [Me & my Bike] clean and keep out nuts tightened.......LOL:-)

Like so many new multi-tools this is impractical. I carry a 100mm adjustable wrench on my key chain and it does what this thing does.
I love innovation, but these days people are re-doing a lot of crap that has been tried and failed.
Besides the 100mm Channel Lock brand wrench http://amzn.to/1Nl2Ea3 I also carry a Klein 10-fold http://amzn.to/1S5Cg8d and a Leatherman. http://amzn.to/1SbSlg1 These tools save me untold numbers of miles walking to my shop for tools.
That chick on the ad was smokin' hot, I gotta give it that.
