    Does anyone else EDC a Clamptite tool ( http://www.clamptitetools.com/ )? I have carried one for quite a while, and on several occasions it has gotten me rollin again. Plus 20' of stainless wire takes up very little space and weighs next to nothing. I have no affililiation with Clamptite tools, I only know the benefits of owning one.

    I have seen them before. They look very useful. I dont have one but on 2 occasions in the past few months have thought back to this product and said..."That would work perfect here". I just need to get out and order one.

    Does the tool also let you undo the wire locks?
    If so, it could be a pretty nifty long term replacement for zip-ties...

    You have to cut the clamps (wires) off. I use it allot in place of wire ties, you just have to watch how much you tighten it especially with softer materials. It definately has more uses than just putting clamps on hoses.

    I'll echo the usefulness of the Clamptite tool. I however don't EDC it. I think it would definitely go in my BOB now that you mention it. I have met the inventor and his wife at our state fair a number of times, really nice people.

    I bought some of these for gifts a few years ago for family and friends. I have seen a number of garden hoses and other things fixed around the house with them.

    Honestly, I think it would be far more useful as a bug IN tool than a bug OUT tool (unless you're bugging out to a friend/relatives abode). Well, it would have its uses in an INCH (I'm Never Coming Home) bag, too.

    In checking out the web site I see six models to choose from. Which model do you have / recommend?

    I just have the $29.95 version, and haven't ran into any trouble.

    I have the $69.95 one made from stainless steel with the bronze nut on the top. The one with the lanyard ring is new. But any of them work great. I bought mine at the Western Washington state fair, the clamptite people are there every year.

    A group buy could be setup probably. I know that the prices can be lowered (since I didn't pay $70 at the fair for it).

    I know this is an older thread, but I was wondering if anyone's actually bought one and what did they use it for! I think i'll finally get one, just need a good excuse. =]

    I've always got one in my truck. A very cool little tool. I've used mine for hoses, attaching paracord to my walking stick, & securing rubber tubing to make a sling-shot.
