SportRatchet

SportRatchet 3 The SportRatchet is a Swiss tool with a ratchet driver with interchangeable hex bits. The shape is unlike any other Victorinox Tool. It was not a successful tool. The large size and limited tool set was not widely received. It is a relatively rare item.

Bladed Tools

The SportRatchet has four "blades". First is a large serrated main knife blade. Next to this is a extended length cap lifter. Opening in the opposite direction from these is the Ratchet. A relatively large, blocky tool, the ratchet allows for bits to be inserted and a switch on the ratchet allows it to turn only clockwise, only counter-clockwise, or not turn at all. This allows for the user to quickly tighten or loosen screws. This ratchet blade locks into place with a liner lock. The fourth 'blade' is a small black plastic bit holder along the same axis as the knife blade. This allows the SportRatchet to carry two bits internally. One in the holder, the other in the ratchet. The tool comes with a double headed hex bit and a double headed Phillips bit.

Non-Bladed Tools

The SportRatchet draws back to it's Swiss Army Knife roots with a toothpick, tweezers, and keyring found on the tool.

Removable Tools

A unique feature of the SportRatchet is the removable wrench. The wrench slide into a slot along the bottom of the tool. The wrench has three different sized hexagonal holes on either end and can be used on a range of both metric and inch nuts.

Scales

The SportRatchet comes with Nylon red scales. Rather than the Victorinox Logo, the full word, along with the name of the tool in smaller letters, is printed on the side.

Variations
