Introduced in 1996, the Swiss+Tech Micro Tech 6-in-1represented a huge leap in the art of tool making. This compact and easily transportable tool was a combination of Swiss craftsmanship with American innovation that created a new category of patented consumer products – Key Ring Tools. Like no other multi functional tools, the Swiss Tech has a patented quick release, integrated locking system that can be attached to any key ring. These high quality, light weight products fulfill a previously unmet consumer need, by having the tools you need when you need them. Using another ingenious, patented locking system, the company then introduced the lightest and most compact tool to be ever created, called the Util-Key 6-in-1, that makes minor repairs, assemblies and installations. The quick release design easily snaps onto your key ring and just as easily releases itself again. During 2005 and beyond Swiss Tech keep continuing to expand on its products to give their customers the best.
