The Venhill VT46 Rotating T-Driver Gets Updated

Ever heard of a T-Driver? It’s a good substitute for a screwdriver or socket in fiddly areas, and can help apply more torque to get stuff undone. And if you want one, the Venhill VT46 Rotating T-Driver has just been updated to make it more even more useful. And it’s available to buy individually for £20.89, or as part of the VT45 Tool Set with screwdriver bits and sockets included.

So what’s improved? Well the rotating handle can now slide up and down the shaft to click into position. Which means it’s more versatile for those fiddly jobs without much space. And being compact and lightweight, it’s also good for travelling and touring, especially if you might have to mess around with luggage racks and other equipment on the road.

And that’s about it really. It features a standard 3/8 inch drive, so it’ll work with most sockets and adaptors. And you can also order it with a selection of hex and Torx, slotted and Phillips screwdriver bits, plus the most commonly used sizes of metric sockets. Which means less time spent hunting around for that one screwdriver you last used about a year ago and now can’t find. And more time looking like a pro pit mechanic as you screw away with ease.

It’s probably more amazing that we’ve managed to avoid crude jokes about tools, shafts and screwing so far. But the Venhill VT46 Rotating T-Driver looks like a solid piece of kit that’ll save time and space, so worth knowing about…

Cruztools Roadtech KT1 Tool Kit for KTM Owners

Own a KTM? Or want to buy something for a motorcyclist who does? The Cruztools Roadtech KT1 Tool Kit could be a good choice. It’s been designed to include the kit you need during routine maintenance of on and off-road KTMs. So owners of the Austrian orange bikes can keep their motorcycles in top condition, including handling basic servicing.

Cruztools is a Californian company which has been around for almost 20 years. They produce tools and kits for motorcylists, guitarists and pilots, and also have an irritating way of capitalising the company name as CruzTOOLS. Having started by offering kits for Harley-Davidson riders, the Roadtech KT1 carries the sizes you need for KTM maintenance. Plus the torx drivers and allen keys that fit the fasteners used, particularly on the KTM Adventure and KTM Duke models.

Which makes sense. How many of us have countless spanner and socket sets in which 2-3 sizes are actually used (and are always the first to be lost somewhere), while the others sit around in mint condition? And by cutting out all the unnecessary stuff, it means you’ll not only find what you need more quickly, but it cuts down on the space you need to carry everything.

Cruztools Roadtech KT1 Tool Kit for KTM Motorcycles Rolled Up

So inside the roll-up Cruztools Roadtech KT1 Tool Kit pouch are the following:

  • 8″ Adjustable Spanner
  • 8mm, 10mm & 13mm Combination Spanners
  • 8mm, 10mm & 13mm Ratcheting Socket Wrench
  • 27mm & 32mm Axle Wrench
  • Single-Hand Mole Grips
  • Tyre Gauge
  • Zipties, Loctite, 7mm x 3/4″ Electrical Tape & Fasteners
  • 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm & 6mm Allen Keys
  • PH1, PH2, 3mm Flat & 1/4″ Flat Magnetic Quick Change Screwdriver
  • T20, T25, T30, T40 & T45 Torx Drivers

You may well have some of the kit already, but actually having a handy way to keep zipties and allen keys with you on a ride can be pretty useful. Particularly if you’re heading off-road and away from anywhere you can direct a recovery vehicle if you break down. Or to have the necessities handy and packed for track days or touring.

The Cruztools Roadtech KT1 Tool Kit for KTMs costs £80.03.
