Watch Handy Lightsaber Retention Screw Tool: Bondhus GorillaGrip set of 9 Hex Fold Up Keys full review on YouTube
One of the best parts about the tool is nine hex key sizes are represented, ranging in size from .050 inch to 3/16 inch. Sometimes different lightsabers hilts, even within the same lightsaber company, will use different size retention screws. A multi-tool like the GorillaGrip Fold Up Tool set helps ensure you have all of the common size hex keys you may need for your current and future lightsabers.
The multi-tool set is standard, which means the hex keys are in inches and should be used with companies that use parts in inches. If have lightsabers with metric screws, or anticipate purchasing lightsabers from both the United States and outside of the United States, you may consider purchasing the metric Bondhus hex key tool as well.
Since the hex key are bundled together and contained within the handle, it’s nearly impossible to lose any of the single hex keys. That said, some people don’t like that the hex keys are attached to the handle and would prefer using loose, single hex keys. If you prefer loose hex keys, Bondhus and other companies sells sets of loose keys as well.
The hex key sizes are written on the the handle, so you don’t need to guess or use the trial and error method of finding the right size hex key for the screw. The bright yellow handle also increases the tool’s visibility, making it easy to find. The multi-tool is relatively inexpensive as well. Lots of retailers will sell the multi-tool for between $5 and $10.
