WHAT IT IS: TACTICA M100 MULTI-TOOL
The Tactica M100 multi-tool is a light, compact multi-tool that’s small enough to add to a keychain. It includes a high-torque hex socket; heavy-duty hex socket; Phillips and flat hex bits; package opener; bottle opener’ 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2 and 9/16-inch imperial wrenches; 5, 6.25, 8, 10, 11, 13 and 14mm metric wrenches; and imperial and metric rulers. It’s made from hardened stainless steel and glass composite material and weighs 1.6 ounces. The internal storage compartment holds two hex bits. The M100 is TSA-approved, so you can board a plane with it. The M100 is $39.95. The M100X bundle with 12 bits is $54.95.
The key to making the Tactica M100 useful is having the most useful bits for your machine stored in the tool or somewhere accessible on your vehicle. It comes with a #1 Phillips and a #4 flat-blade bit. Torx bits are much more common on UTVs, so plan on getting the bits that fit your machine or the M100X bundle with 12 bits. The Tactica M100 can’t help with every repair job, but it’s ideal for tightening dashboard, console, fender flare and helmet fasteners before you’re looking at holes where missing fasteners belong. Fasteners on accessories like mirrors, steering wheels and roofs always seem to need attention, too.
We didn’t find the M100’s wrenches very useful for UTVs, because most fasteners are recessed or so hard to access they call for socket wrenches. If you have the right bit, the M100 can turn sockets, but not with much torque unless you’re a professional wrestler. The package opener is handy for opening camp supplies, and the bottle opener is a must for folks who are too fancy for twist-off beverages.
Your UTV probably has a toolkit in the glove box you’ve never touched—and a bunch of loose dashboard, console and fender flare fasteners. The Tactica M100 is expensive, but it puts useful tools easily within reach in your pocket or on your keychain where you actually might use them.
