The Dakine Stubby Driver Snowboard Tool is by far the smallest snowboard tool on the market today. It has a phillips and flathead screwdriver bit and a small ratcheting system to help with quick fixes on the hill. The only downfalls to it are that it is so small that it's often difficult to use with gloves or mittens on. Also, it's a unique small shape, so if you fall on it, you're going to get a bruise. I got a pretty gnarly Charlie horse from it, so I'd recommend putting it somewhere where you're not likely to fall (like lower on a pant leg. Even so, it's still worth having on the mountain for the odd time where a screw gets loose or you need to make a binding adjustment.
This tool is very handy to have, can easily be put in your pocket on the slopes. It has various attachments to fit any type of screw. Just make sure you use the longer phillips-head for your bindings or your bindings will come loose while ridin
I have this tool and the dakine mega blaster. The built on this one is so much better! I leave the standard philips head out while on the mtns and it doesnt fall out, not even in my bag! on the other hand, all the screw drivers on the mega blaster falls out of its compartment when turning. with this tool, I never had to wait on line till other people finishes using the tools from the mtns
This thing feels like it's been made well. It has a built in ratchet which is nice...it makes screwing things on with a glove alot nicer. The best part is you can carry this anywhere while boarding/skiing and not have to worry about getting stabbed in the leg because the screw bits are detachable and are stored in the butt of the handle.
I bought this in case I needed it on the mountain after reading reviews on stuff coming lose. I opened it tried it out, then realized its the same screw driver my girlfriend got from home depot for under ten with more bits and even sockets
I love this driver, it's portable, and won't fail you like the cheaper dakines. I have found one thing that p***es me off. As a shop employee for years, I know that a very large percentage of binding bolts are a #3 philips and a few are #3 posi-drive, THERE IS NO #3 PHILIPS!!!!!! almost all bolts are 3# philips!!!!!!! so if you buy this driver, and don't want to strip your heads, buy the tech driver, and throw the #3philips on this driver for its portability
I got this tool last year, and it has saved me a few times on the mountain. Nothing is worse than making all of your friends stop while you find a screwdriver somewhere. It is a little bulky in your pocket, but its really durable. I had a torque driver from another company, and it has fallen apart. You also get a lot of torque from this little guy, my bindings don't loosen up on me during the day
I got tired of waiting to use the crappy tools at the lifts so I picked up one of these. definitely worth the investment. I even use it when I'm at home tuning my stuff since I keep it in my snowboarding jacket. its small enough to where I dont even notice it.
