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. The MTX® Multi-Tool is the perfect solution for carrying all of the different sized hex head bits used on all RRS screws, as well as numerous other bits for common photographic industry equipment.
But our product line continues to evolve and expand, leading to an ever-increasing number of tool requirements and types. This tool is the best way to carry all your tools. We offer a variety of alternate and replacement bits that allow you to customize your MTX® Multi-Tool for the way you use it.
