This Gadget Puts An Entire Toolbox In Your Pocket – Hailed As This Year’s #1 Gift
As a lifelong general contractor, I’ve seen my fair share of “multi-tools”.
Some are excellent lifelong equipment… but most are gimmicky garbage. They’re either completely worthless (none of the “functionalities” work), or they fall apart after a few weeks of mild use. Bah.
So, when my friend gifted me a new multi-tool called Geekey that claims it’s “an entire toolbox fit into a small key-sized device”, I was naturally skeptical…
However, my friend insisted it could handle all of my daily tasks in a pinch. He said he picked up a pair just to test it out after it earned $1.5 million in sales from a highly successful crowdfunding campaign. First he was going to give it to his son, but after trying it, he thought someone like me would appreciate it even more…
So I attached it to my keychain – mostly to please my buddy. (It’s the same reason I’ll be wearing an ugly lime green sweater this Christmas, and NOT ironically… you’re welcome, mom.)
But after a few weeks of carrying it around, I have to admit: He was right.
The Geekey doesn’t just look nice on your keychain – it’s a very well-made everyday tool.
I’m not easy to impress, either… but I’ve been shocked by how useful it is. Not only is it made with high-quality materials, but I also use at least one of the 16 built-in tools every day – and all of them perform extremely well. So don’t be fooled by its compact size!
While I’m not about to throw away my entire toolbox, I have noticed that Geekey includes pretty much all of the tools I use on a daily basis. It’s very useful when you’re in a pinch – it’s sort of like having your toolbelt with you wherever you go. Let me explain…
What is Geekey?
Geekey is a key-shaped multi-tool that includes 16 functionalities:
- Multi-Bit Screwdriver (fits slotted, phillips, square & combo heads)
- ¼ Inch Bit Driver
- Bottle Opener
- Can Opener
- Wire Stripper
- Wire Bender + Bike Spoke Key
- Serrated Edge
- ¼ Inch Open Wrench
- 12 Metric & Imperial Closed Wrenchs
- Imperial Closed Wrench
- Scoring Tip
- File (works on metal, wood, & plastic)
- Imperial + Metric Ruler
No question: This is the most useful multi-tool I’ve ever tried.
Geekey is made from 420 Stainless Steel, which gives it a sleek, “expensive-looking” appearance. Unlike cheap gimmicks, I’m not ashamed to bust out my Geekey in a pinch – and I’ve even received compliments from fellow contractors!
Most importantly, all the tools function the same as (or very close to) the “real deal”. Don’t get fooled by the clever design – the Geekey was clearly made by fellow contractors, and it holds its own even during tough projects.
How I use Geekey to do pretty much everything
Let’s get into the details here, shall we? I’ll start with the functionalities I use most.
First off, the multi-bit screwdriver is my favorite part – it really surprised me. It’s 9 different screwdriver tips in 1 head, which means it works with all of the most common screw heads. No other tool has this… it’s genius! I didn’t expect to be able to get much power with it, but the design actually makes it easy to use on anything but the most resistant screws.
Naturally, it won’t replace a power drill… but I’ve found myself reaching for my Geekey instead of heading back to the van multiple times. It’s a huge time-saver!
Next, the wrenches are excellent. Geekey includes 12 closed wrenches (both imperial and metric sizes) – meaning it can handle any quick fix without much effort. The small size also makes it especially useful in situations where a normal wrench won’t fit.
I’m still waiting to use some of the functions, but I can tell you that the wire stripper and bender work like a charm – so far I’ve used it to change outlets around my house, set up my surround sound, and even fix a few loose car wires.
The cut on the serrated knife edge is clean and precise, too. It’s perfect for opening boxes, cutting rope and even slicing through tree branches. Because the edge is enclosed, it’s considered TSA compliant.
Of course, if I’m being really honest… I probably use the bottle opener more than anything else. I think it’s pretty cool that I was able to replace my old keychain bottle opener (which was bulky and had a jagged edge) with this one – it’s nicely integrated into the Geekey.
Oh, right – I should mention there’s also a built-in smoking bowl for those who enjoy that sort of thing. I’m getting more use out of the bottle opener myself, but I can see how a smoker would love this discreet little addition. (It’s also a great conversation starter… hah!)
Who is Geekey ideal for?
As you can imagine, contractors and handymen are going to love Geekey… but that’s just the beginning.
Anyone who has limited space, yet handles a wide variety of tasks is going to love this thing – and DIYers, cyclists, motorcycle riders, hikers, backpackers, skateboarders, and others are already raving about it.
Honestly, I think anyone who’s somewhat active will get plenty of use out of it. It’s a great utility tool to have available at all times.
To me, the most important proof comes from the thousands of others who’ve tested it too… and as of this writing, it’s already racked up 1200+ reviews with a 4.6/5 average rating. Clearly, I’m not alone!

Bottom line: Geekey passes this contractor’s “usefulness test” (with flying colors)!
Simply put, the Geekey packs in a TON of “problem solving utility” – which is crazy, considering the fact that fits in the palm of your hand.
It also blends in with my other keys perfectly, so it’s a no-brainer for anyone who uses any of these tools regularly.
So, yeah… I’m definitely impressed by this lightweight, yet strong and well-built multi-tool. It’s earned its (small) spot in my pocket, and it’s even saved my ass a few times!
Note: They’ve been hit by heavy demand lately, so it’s a bit difficult to find – but if you get the chance, I highly recommend trying the Geekey for yourself.
