Strange ‘Multi-Tool’ Shaped Like Crab

The Crab Mate, in funding now on Kickstarter, can be used as a knotless gear tie device for securing or strapping down items with paracord.

It can be used as a mini pry bar, nail puller, bottle opener, hex wrench, screw driver, wire or line cutter, and more.

All these features are built onto a solid piece of metal the shape of a crab. It’s a couple inches wide and can attach to a key chain.

The company will make them of titanium and stainless steel. They weigh 1.2 and 2.4 ounces respectively.

See the project on Kickstarter this month.

Fund the project at $16 minimum and the company will ship you a crab tool once they come to market later this year. —Stephen Regenold
