I fell asleep on the couch with the TV on, waking up at 4 with vague recollections of an infommercial.
Multi tools are a saddlebag must and can save your butt in a jam, but with their clunky bodies and short bits they can be a pain to use. A chubby character actor in a Primal Wear jersey tightens a bolt by turning the multi tool a quarter turn at a time before its body bumps into the bike, each time struggling to reposition the bit in the bolt head. Eventually our DeNiro wannabe’s frustration boils over and he melodramatically slams the tool to the ground, turns to the camera and says, “There’s gotta be a better way!”
Introducing Fix it Sticks, the tool that’s as easy to use as shop tools, but as compact as a multi tool. The secret is in its patented two part construction.
Each of the two sticks has a hex socket on either end to accept a variety of bits, as well as another hex socket in the middle to join the two to make a high torque T wrench. Use a stick by itself to quickly start a bolt – at 15mm wide and 105 mm long, access to tight spots is no problem at all. Once it’s finger tight pop on the second stick to finish. The studio audience applauds, flabbergasted. Closeup of two audience members turning to each other and nodding.
Our protagonist is now Schleck thin, flashing his nipples through a Rapha Sky jersey. He’s too pro to suffer a mechanical, but he does pull over and save a damsel in distress. They ride off into the sunset hand in hand while Vince the slap chop guy is furloughed to hop into frame and give two thumbs up.
What would you pay for such a product? $100? $75? $50? How about $30? Fix it Sticks are available here, but if you act now we’ll send you a second pair free, just pay handling charges equal to the price of one unit. Seriously, act now. There’s just 13 days left in the Kickstarter campaign.
