A collapsible hilt lightsaber joins the two hilts with a hinged connector mechanism. The hilts securely lock into place after they are fully extended for battle or collapsed for wearing on a utility belt.
Several additional characters in Star Wars wield collapsible double-bladed lightsabers. Jedi Master Pong Krell uses two collapsible double-bladed lightsabers during the Clone Wars era. Jedi Temple Guards also use yellow-bladed collapsible lightsaber pikes as well.
