Zootility PocketMonkey: The TSA Compliant Wallet Tool
The Day Was Saved, By The Monkey In My Pocket
I know…I know. As soon as you think of a wallet multi-tool; you start thinking of those little wallet “survival” cards.
This is not that.
The Zootility PocketMonkey fits in your wallet and features 12 functions. That is how many are advertised, but I am sure you can think of many other things to do with a credit card sized piece of stainless steel.
My daughter got one for me as a Father’s Day gift this year, so I put it in my wallet and completely forgot about it.
Last weekend, I took the kids to the park to ride their bikes, and my youngest son’s brake cable slipped; so the handbrake would no longer work.
I reached for my Swiss Champ; then remembered that I have been leaving it at home, since I started carrying the EvoGrip S17. That meant that I had no pliers to tighten the bolt.
As I was explaining to him, that he would have to go old-school and pedal backwards to stop, I remembered the PocketMonkey. I took it out of my wallet, saw that one of the hex wrenches did indeed fit the bolt, and saved the day.
As stated above; the PocketMonkey has 12 functions:
- Bottle Opener
- Flat Screwdriver
- Philips Screwdriver
- Micro Flat Screwdriver
- Phone Kickstand
That last one threw me off too. It has a wavy slot at the bottom of the tool. You slide a credit card through the slot, and it turns into a functional phone stand.
- Door Latch Slip
- Hex Wrenches
- Headphone Wrap
Yeah, you can use the little monkey’s arms to hold onto your headphone wires. Cute right?
- Letter Opener (Closest thing to a blade you will find on this tool.)
This feature actually works well for opening packages as well.
- Straight Edge
- Orange Peeler
This tool is so small, thin, and light that you can put it in your wallet and literally forget about it.
Due to the fact that there is no actual blade on the tool, it is considered TSA compliant and many users report traveling with it without having any TSA-related issues.
There is no reason why you should not try this tool. Just do it. It may save the day for you, in some little way; as it did for me.
