Used the awl on my Victorinox Swiss Army knife to make some new holes on my dogs new collar.
Got myself and my dog matching collar and belt haha.

Used my classic to unscrew my Zippo internals screw, because I bought a lanyard bead and needed to fill the lighter with fluid in order to burn the mil-spec 550 to feed it through the lanyard successfully.
Tightened the retention on a kydex mag carrier for concealed carry today, with my LM Style PS. I used to swap out TSA-safe Style PS with Squirt PS4 as needed, but I fly too much nowadays to mess with it. So it was kinda funny to me to be at a hotel room out of town with my decidedly TSA-unsafe pistol and only have my TSA-safe multi at hand for the quick adjustment.
Had to do an "Emergency" change out of a puny 42" dumb TV for a 55" 4K Smart one and had no tools with aside from the Spirit X.

Glad you noticed,it cracked me up too!
Bent one of the mounting ears straight on the office Christmas tree stand.
Used my Style PS to take the glued on cap off her bottle of gorilla glue so she could use it to fix a piece of jewelry!
Loose screws on the hinge of a portable room divider at mom and dad's? Wingman to the rescue!!
Something fell off behind my desk at the office and I couldn’t reach it. Then, I had to unscrew some clamping pieces to separate the modules in order to move them.
Once the space was clearer I used the pliers to extend the reach of my hand a few centimeters in order to avoid moving the furniture all the way off.
@SurivStud: Pardon me whilst I play 'Monday morning quarterback'. Can't help but wonder if a grappling hook sort of thing would have worked, and failing that a bent paperclip and some sort of string? Not being critical. Just wondering...

lol! Ditto on my kydex holster with my Vic "Soldier".
Used my Vic Spartan to tighten a loose screw in my door hinge and opened some packages with the Vic Escort on my keys
Used my LM Squirt PS4 to pull a dirty pipe cleaner out of my pipe, thus avoiding nicotine stains...

Opened bags of stuff for the garden, tightened a drawer handle, used the awl to make a hole for creating a "purse" for my GF's eight year old, pliers pulled a drawstring out - good day for the Rebar in my pocket.
Used my Charge TTi to cut out unwanted saplings from my reviving yard vegetation. On account of Spring, everything is coming back, including the invasive ones. All I can do is keep them in check, but in the end, they will win. Nature is a mother******.
I used my Leatherman Wave last Saturday to save my vacation. I was riding across Nebraska on my ST1300, pulling a Bushtec trailer (which has air suspension), when I noticed that the trailer was getting pretty squirrelly back there. Took the nearby exit, toodled into the parking lot of McDonalds, and took a look. Tires were good, suspension was bouncy, but the toe-in was more toe-out. Not surprising, since I'd lost a few thousand feet of elevation. So, get out the pump and add some air to the suspension. Test the roll and toe, all good. Remove the pump. ALL the air escapes. CRAP!! Schrader valve on the suspension isn't closing. Hmmm, maybe there are consequences to a missing valve cap. Of course, the valve location isn't the easiest to get a good close look at, but I see some assorted road goobers in there. Pull out the Wave and flip out the wee glasses screwdriver to try to pick out all the gunk. Get some, pump back up, remove pump... pssssssssssss.. nuts! I'm going to have to remove the valve core. Head in to McD's to get some breakfast and do a quick check online to insure that there's nothing fancy going on with the valve. Then I walk up the street to a NAPA store and get one of those four-way valve tools and some valve caps. Walk back to the bike and ... the four-way won't work! The valve is mounted just under the trailer tongue, and there's not enough room for the "wings" of the four-way to clear.
Now, y'all may have noticed that my vacation isn't quite saved yet. NAPA had a very fancy valve tool for $15, but I'm thinking there's gotta be something better, so I head across the street to the farm and ranch store. In their air tools section I find a double-ended inline valve tool, like a screwdriver with two ends. AHA!! Victory is mine. Walk back to the bike and give it a shot.
CRAP!! There's a DIFFERENT interference issue. The wiring harness for the lights emerges from the tongue about 1/4" TOO CLOSE to the blasted valve for the tool to fit. GRRRRR..
But wait. What if I cut the tool down? It looks like it might be two separate working bits jammed into the handle, rather than one solid piece. So I break the Leatherman back out and use the wavy blade to start cutting the handle in half. The plastic of the handle is cutting, but too slow for my taste, so I switch to the sawblade. Now THAT'S getting it done. It turns out, my suspicion is correct, two working bits jammed into the plastic handle from both ends, with a gap in the middle, which I cut through.
Now armed with a single ended valve core removal tool that fits into the available working space, I remove the core, clean everything up as best I can, reinstall, and pump it up. Removing the pump, I hear the sweet, sweet sound of.... nothing. Alles ist gut!! I put a new cap on the valve, put away my tools, hook my trailer back up, gear up, and ride along.
THAT, my friends, is why I carry a Leatherman.
replaced two capacitors on my AC unit, the thing went out saturday into sunday. had to sleep in 95 degrees with the fan on. not fun at all, i was first in line at the supply store. getting the AC going felt like Christmas morning. EDIT: BTW it was my Rebar that did the job. love this thing had for 3 years now never far from me.
My kids children were swinging and I noticed that one of the nuts was loose, almost coming out. Leatherman Charge Tti to adjust it.
