Words by my research from Victorinox:
“The development of this small ratchet tool represents a masterpiece from the VICTORINOX engineers
with regard to miniaturization, solidity and functionality. At present there is no comparable ratchet in this size on the market”
This is very true and follow the quality we know from Victorinox. There is an extension bar made for the Ratchet and I recommend it because the use will be more comfortable. I bought a cheap extension bar from a hardware store and it works very well.
This ratchet got much potential for bits and use.
I am always interested to learn about extra parts for multitools and knives, I would say the biggest advantage with a separate key or ratchet is
the double function it will give you. Plier and a ratchet like I have explained and talked about on different pages her on sakhome.com
Today machinery and products in the world require different
bits and screwdrivers to repair or for maintenance. To custom make a bit set is fun and interesting because one will have to make sure that the bits and tool does not get lost. It is more safe to have a multitool alone, it will go a long way but it cannot
fur fill every role today.
I believe Victorinox did see this possibility for a key and ratchet to enhance the functionality and strength of a multitool pack.
The Ratchet make a nice clicking sound when using it
