Category Archives: Multitasker Tools

We all know there are a TON of multitools out there on the market ranging from cheap and useless to the Swiss Army knife of multitools with so many tools you have no idea what some of them are. For the AR15 owner there¬†we tend to be consumed by our passion for AR15’s and there is absolutely no better multitool for us to have than the Multitasker from Multitasker Tools. The Multitasker is an AR15-centric (AR15 focused) multitool and NOBODY packs the perfect amount of¬†relevant tools into one package like the Multitasker does.

Multitasker Tools Series 3x 1

I’ve been a huge fan of Multitasker Tools for years, in fact I have a pretty impressive collection of them including a Series 2X and Series 3. Now the Multitasker has gotten a bit of an update in the new Series 3X. At first glance you might not see these updates but as always, the man behind Multitasker Tools is always striving for perfection and pushing these to be the best multitools on the planet. The Series 3X upgrades are ….

The 3″ D2 knife blade is now PVD coated
Multitasker Tools Series 3x 1

The bit carrier can now hold ALL the supplied bits, including the FSP adjustment tool
Multitasker Tools Series 3x 1

Now don’t worry, the Series 3X still incorporates all of the fan favorite tools such as the AR15 Castle Nut Wrench,¬†3/8‚ÄĚ and 1/2″ hex wrench, Carbon Scraper, Otis Cleaning Tools Attachment, etc.

Multitasker Tools is officially announcing that they are offering the¬†Multitasker Tools TWIST mulititool in #TeamTaskerTan (a blend of Coyote Tan with a hint of OD). The Multitasker Tools TWIST is hands down one of the most useful and easily carried tools I own. When not in use the TWIST is basically the size of a sharpie and clips to a pocket, pouch, MOLLE webbing, etc. but when you need its help it quickly changes into the superhero of multitools able to tackle pretty much anything you ask of it. Even though the TWIST is “weaponcentric” (designed for weapon maintenance) you’ll find yourself grabbing the TWIST for tons of non-weapon jobs as well.

Multitasker Tools makes some of the most useful multitools specifically designed for¬†owners of AR-15’s and other popular firearms. One of my personal¬†favorites is the TWIST which is like a pen that Q would have made for James Bond and is packed with useful tools to help¬†keep your firearms running and on target. If you remove the cap on one end it reveals a bunch of maintenance tools such as a carbon scraper, dental pick, etc that screw onto the end of¬†the cap that was just removed. When you remove the other cap you’ll find a Front Sight Adjustment Tool which doubles also as a bit driver. Other features such as an Aimpoint Micro Turret Adjuster are also included.

As they have done in the past, Multitasker Tools has partnered up with Brownells to offer a limited edition version of the TWIST hydrodipped in Multicam. The Limited Edition Multitasker Tools TWIST will sell out fast but your hands on the them first at www.Brownells.com.

They are¬†CNC machined out of T-6061 aluminum, Type III mil-spec anodized, have o-ring sealed caps and are only about the size of a Sharpie marker. But don’t let the size fool you, its literally like having a toolbox in your pocket!

and the dental pick on the Multitasker Tools TWIST (right).

One of the first questions¬†everyone asks about….everything is, “What’s it cost?”. The Multitasker Tools TWIST¬†will be a pleasant surprise coming in at an MSRP of just $59.95 and a street price of¬†closer to $50. Seems like an extremely reasonable price for a tool that you’ll be able to carry everywhere with you and will probably get lots of use. Looks like¬†these are¬†still 2-3 weeks away from showing up on dealer websites so keep an eye on both the Multitasker Tools Facebook page and Multitasker Tools Instagram page for availability updates.

I think its pretty fair assessment to say I am a big fan of Multitasker Tools. So far I currently own a Series 2X, two Series 3 and a EDC-2 that Multitasker Tools makes for Emerson Knives which have all been awesome.¬†The same can easily be said of TAREINCO¬†gear. I still use an old version of the TAREINCO¬†VTP Sling as well as some Tape Switch Holders and even a Camera Strap. When I found out that TAREINCO¬†was now making a carry pouch specifically for the new Multitasker Tools Series I couldn’t help myself.¬†

The new Multitasker Tools Series 3 is the first version to come with a built in pocket clip which is probably why they decided to not include a pouch with it. I still personally found the Series 3 too bulky to want to carry in my pocket so I either carried it in a bag our in my hand until I could set it down somewhere. TAREINCO¬†realized this as well and decided to offer both a PALs and Belt mount model carrier, called the MT3-XTRA, which is specifically designed to fit the Series 3 and the supplied 1/4″ Bit Set. As you can see in the photo below I went with the PALs model (technically could still be used on a belt though).

Tareinco MT3-XTRA 1 copy

The MT3-XTRA basically consists of a small pouch (for carrying the Bit Set) that is sewn to the front of a larger pouch (for carrying the Series 3). Both pouches are made from heavy duty webbing, have Velcro closures and Elastic sides to hold their contents tight. The 1/4″ Bit Set is stored in the smaller front pouch which can be accessed by simply pulling up on the closure itself. The Series 3 multitool is stored in the larger pouch which is accessed by pulling up on the D-Ring pull loop at the bottom of the front pouch. I like this design because,¬†without even looking, I can feel for the D-Rin pull loop and remove the Series 3.¬†

Even though it’s carrying a lot, the¬†MT3-XTRA is still pretty low profile. The overall size of the¬†MT3-XTRA is just barely larger than the size of the Series 3 itself yet makes it so much more usable by having a way to carry the 1/4″ Bit Set along with it.¬†

Tareinco MT3-XTRA 1 copy

As I mentioned earlier, TAREINCO¬†makes both a PALs and Belt mountable version of the¬†MT3-XTRA carrier. I personally liked the PALs version better simply because it can be mounted to Backpacks, Battle Belts, Plate Carriers (shown below), etc. I’ve had mine mounted to my Plate Carrier cummerbund but you could mount it anywhere you want. The PALs version comes with a Malice Clip so its as easy as threading the clip and snapping it in place. Another thing to note is that the¬†MT3-XTRA also works well with the Series 2X Multitasker as well.

Tareinco MT3-XTRA 1 copy

Overall, I have been extremely pleased with the¬†MT3-XTRA. It is a very simple, straightforward and affordable carrier that does exactly what it is designed to do. The stitching is straight and you can tell they take great care to make sure the assembly is square and done right. One thing I would possibly like to see is additional colors such as MultiCam or Kryptek colors as it is currently available in Black or Coyote. As with all TAREINCO¬†gear, the¬†MT3-XTRA is made right here in the USA. If you’re a Multitasker Tools fan like I am, this is the perfect pouch for you. I’ve put links below that will take you directly to the PALs or Belt model below.

As you may have already heard, the much anticipated Mutlitasker Tools Series 3 multitools are finally available for purchase and we were lucky enough to get our hands on one. ¬†The Series 3, much like its predecessors, is much more than just a multitool. ¬†Its designed from the ground up as a “pocket toolbox” for your AR15. ¬†As we did with the Series 2X, a full review is in the works. ¬†For now I wanted to give you a nice photographic overview of the features found on the new Multitasker Tools Series 3 which you will find below.

When I opened the package I received in the mail and saw this beautiful box, I thought Shane (the Multitasker Tools genius) had bought me a new watch or something.  But this is just the first of many things that will show you that there were no corners cut with the Series 3.

Multitasker Tools Series 3 16

I’ll give you a second to gather yourself and stop drooling. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Once you remove the Series 3 from the box you’ll get to see it in all its glory with those awesome looking G10 scales. ¬†You’ll also notice the neatly organized hex bit set. ¬†You might be thinking “What is a hex bit set doing in there?” ¬†We’ll get to that in a second. ¬†

Multitasker Tools Series 3 2

One of the first things that caught my eye was the fact that the Series 3 has a pocket clip. ¬†This is something that is a much needed feature. ¬†In the past the Multitasker’s have come with pouches but I don’t know of many people who actually used them. ¬†I think this is a great upgrade over past models for sure as it makes it easier to carry in your pocket instead of just throwing it in your range bag, etc. ¬†

Multitasker Tools Series 3 15

As I alluded to before, the Series 3 Multitasker is what you might call “AR-Centric”. ¬†Many of its features are specifically designed to aid in the maintenance and cleaning of an AR15. ¬†For instance, the Front Sight Adjuster (shown below) is something that comes in extremely handy whether you’re in the field or at the range.¬†

Multitasker Tools Series 3 3

The Front Sight Adjustment tool is held in place by a pretty strong magnet. ¬†Once removed it reveals a 1/4″ Bit Driver which is where the nifty little Hex Bit set comes into play. ¬†The Hex Bit set includes ten very commonly used bits that snap into place and held there by the magnet. ¬†This also makes it easier to keep small screws on the bits as well. ¬†The bits included are: ¬†TORX: T10 and T15; HEX: 3/32, 7/64, 1/8, 9/64, 3/16 and 3/32; Std Screwdriver: 3/32 and 3/16; Phillips Screwdriver: No. 1

Multitasker Tools Series 3 4

Another very “AR-Centric” feature is the availability of a 3/8″ and 1/2″ Hex Wrench which are common bolt sizes found on LaRue mounts and other scope rings. ¬†

 

Multitasker Tools Series 3 5

Perhaps the most “AR-Centric” feature of all is the Castle Nut Wrench. ¬†Multitasker Tools is the only manufacturer to incorporate a Castle Nut Wrench into their product. ¬†They have studied their end user, listened to feedback and understand exactly what their customers want and need.¬†

Multitasker Tools Series 3 6

One thing that always seems to be missing on multitools is a good blade. ¬†Well, Mutlitasker Tools set out to make that a thing of the past this time around and they’ve done just that. ¬†The Series 3 features a full size blade with a thumb assist for easy opening.

Multitasker Tools Series 3 7

It also features a very crisp/solid Liner Lock to keep the blade in place.  When you want to fold it just press the safety tab to the left and it folds with ease.

Multitasker Tools Series 3 8Multitasker Tools Series 3 8

Another nice feature which can be used for many different uses is the 3/32 Pin Punch. ¬†I tend to use mine for pushing Hammer and Trigger Pins out. ¬†I’ve also seen it used on handguns during tear down as well. ¬†Once again, not wanting to waste any space, there is another little surprise waiting for you. ¬† ¬†

Multitasker Tools Series 3 9

Simply unscrew the 3/32 Pin Punch to reveal a 8-32 male thread.  This allow you to attach your Series 3 to different cleaning accessories, especially those found in the OTIS cleaning kits.  

Multitasker Tools Series 3 10

The Multitasker Tools feature one of the best Carbon Scraper tools I’ve used. ¬†It works fantastic at scraping the carbon off of AR15 bolts and bolt carriers but can be used for a wide variety of other tasks as well.¬†

Multitasker Tools Series 3 11

Now on to the business end.  The Series 3 has one serious set of teeth and its not afraid to use them.  The Pliers on the Seris 3 are made of D2 Tool Steel and feature a super smooth hybrid bearing.  As with the rest of the major components on the Series 3, the Pliers are wireEDM/CNC machined giving it a strength and precision that is unmatched.  Another new feature for the Series 3 is the user replaceable cutting blades (one on each side of the plier).  

Multitasker Tools Series 3 13

I can tell you just from messing around with it over the past week or so that Multitasker Tools went all in on this tool. ¬†The quality and workmanship is unreal. ¬†I’m really looking forward to using the Series 3 Multitasker over the next few months and really get some good use out of it. ¬†If you would like to purchase one for yourself right now I have included a few links below to retailers that have them in-stock including our good friends at Weapon Outfitters and TacStrike.
