The guide unit on the SwissTool gives the possibility for a lanyard and the separate corkscrew.
From my information and research this guide unit
for the pliers is responsible for the right distance between the handles and the necessary pressure onto the pliers.
On the picture the guide unit is easy to see and I really like the separate corkscrew
possibility.I believe this part could fit other tools as well!. I would like a better place for a lanyard.
The next picture show the part on the “tang” if we can say so and the part
where the metal plate for the locking mechanism sit. The SwissTool is an advanced multitool. The locking mechanism for these tools are durable.
