Really Right Stuff has always rejected coin-slotted screws for our quick-release plates, no matter how convenient they may appear. Sufficient torque to properly fix the screw just can’t be generated with a coin. Instead, we've always chosen hex-socket screws to anchor our quick-release plates. The hex-key is an elegant solution for the purpose. Hex keys deliver more than enough torque for the job, are compact, inexpensive, and universally available. A few years ago, we started including US-made Bondhus® hex keys with all our plates because of their unsurpassed dimensional consistency and ultra-high corrosion resistance.
But our product line continues to evolve and expand, leading to an ever-increasing number of tool requirements and types. How best to carry all the tools you need? Our MTX Multi-Tool, of course! We offer a variety of alternate and replacement bits that allow you to customize your MTX Multi-Tool for the way you use it.
