General M.110 FAQ
Find answers to your most burning questions about the M.110 Multitool.
Does the M.110 come with screwdriver bits?
Yes, the M.110 comes pre-loaded with two screwdriver bits - one 6mm allen key, one phillips. The larger tire lever also comes pre-loaded with 4mm and 5mm allen keys.
If you need help removing them from the tool, see the section below - M.110 Functions explained.
Won't the tyre levers damage my rims? Or snap?
Our tyre levers are made of the same engineering composite as our tools, and can take up to 10Nm of force - more than enough to pry off your wheel. Since they're not metal either, they won't scratch or ding up your rims.
As with any tire lever, you don't want to concentrate too much force in any one spot - you want to work your way around the tire as you remove it. Too much pressure in any one spot can cause an indentation.
What sized screwdriver bits does the M.110 use?
The M.110 uses 1/4" Hex shank tool bits.
What material is the M.110 made of?
Both the main multitool and tyre levers are built using an engineering-grade glass-reinforced composite. This material has a very high glass-to-polymer ratio (70%), making it incredibly tough, and weighs in 40% lighter than titanium.
How strong is the screwdriver socket?
The front screwdriver socket of the M.110 is reinforced with a steel collar, and can withstand up to 10Nm of torque.
Can I sharpen the package opener?
No, the package opener cannot be sharpened. It's intended for slicing tape or plastic wrapping, not cutting cardboard, and as long as it's used this way it won't need sharpening.
How do I carry the M.110?
It's up to you! Some people hang it off their keychain, some people throw it in their bag and others just leave it in the glovebox.
If you're taking it cycling, then the M.110 is just as comfortable in your bike bag and your pocket. With the tire levers attached it's even non-scratch, so don't worry about keeping it next to your phone.
M.110 Functions explained
In this section, we'll go into detail how each function of the M.110 works.
Removing and using the tyre levers
The M.110 comes with 2 tyre levers magnetically attached to the core multitool. Simply pry them apart to remove them, and re-align them to magnetically snap them together again.
Once removed, they can be used as traditional tire levers. Wedge the hooked end of the lever between the rim and tire, and work your way around, flexing the tire away from the rim as you go. Eventually, the tire will pop off, ready for repairs.
Removing tool bits and using the screwdriver
Two screwdriver bits are stored inside the M.110 multitool, secured by a rubber stopper. To unlock the storage tube, just pinch the wide part of the rubber stopper and peel it away from the body, as shown in image 2.
Once open, you can access the tool bits inside by tipping them out. If they get stuck on the small magnet, just tap it into your palm to let it loose.
Re-seal the rubber stopper and insert your tool bit, then you're ready to go.
The steel core of the M.110 doubles as a wrench for both metric and imperial nuts & bolts.
To use it, line up your bolt with the zig-zag cutout and place it on top. Remember, lefty-loosy, righty-tighty.
Cut through tape and plastic wrapping without damaging your delivery inside. Line up the hooked talon of the M.110 with the tape seam and swipe it through for a clean cut.
Heavy-duty screwdriver socket
This socket gives you a better grip and more torque, but be aware the screwdriver bit is not secured when using it. You'll need to brace it with your thumb as you turn.
Just put your screwdriver bit into the cutout on the side of the steel core and get to work.
You won't be measuring up a house with these rulers, but they do come in handy when you least expect them.
Brace the rippled edge of the bottlecap against the steel core, and the flat top of the bottlecap against the plastic body. Lever up, and the cap comes right off.
