first handled the new Gerber Compact Sport Multi-Plier 400 I was amazed at its light
weight and compact size. My first thought was that this tool doesnt have the size
required to have all the features wanted in a multitool, but I soon changed my mind.
After reading the enclosed instructions and several
practice attempts I soon mastered the one hand jaw extension. Removing the
from its rugged ballistic nylon sheath, you just lightly grasp the sides of the handles
and flick your wrist toward the floor. When done correctly you will hear a
"click" as the jaws lock into place. Now the Multi-Pliers can be opened to see
the array of features, which make this a true multi tool.
There are eleven (11) features, including;
- Standard pliers
- Needlenose pliers
point knife blade
- Crosshead screwdriver
flathead screwdriver/ Bottle opener
- Fiskars precision scissors
Each of these tools can be independently and easily rotated into and
out of the handles. Each tool locks positively into its working position and can be
unlocked with the slide release for stowing back in the handle. The handles offer a smooth
and comfortable "no-pinch" design.
These pliers can also adapt to the Gerber Tool Kit for even greater
The excellent machining, fit and finish of these pliers make them a
benchmark of craftsmanship. To finish it all off they are made of stainless steel so they
are virtually corrosion-proof which will make them a welcome addition to your tacklebox or
toolbox on your boat. They have a Gerber Limited Lifetime Warranty.
