by Eric no frills, just function
If you had to design the most basic nut tool and keep it functional and cheap, this would be it. Yes, others have candy apple red bells, but I actually prefer this one. Does its job and gives you options as to how you want to attach it.

I'm not sure why some folks are bagging on the BD nut tool. Come on, it's a nut removal tool. How exciting is it supposed to be? It helps remove jammed nuts and cams like it's designed to. It even has a bottle opener for Christ's sake. If the edges are too sharp for your delicate hands wrap the end with some athletic tape. Tada! BD could have added more bells and whistles, but then it wouldn't be $9.95. It's always done what it was designed to do. No complaints here.

Well, BD's nut tool 'does the job', but not much else.
Finish isn't exactly brilliant, and the clever ideas that all competitors have included in their versions of the nut tool are here absent.
E.g. Hex to tighten the standard 17mm bolts, clip included, bigger overmoulded handle to grip better, etc.
Overall, BD's nut tool does the job, but doesn't stand out above the rest

This is a great nut tool. I've used one for years, and it's very durable, works well, and it opens bottles too. You should pick one of these up, you won't be disappointed!

I love BD products, and usually super happy with them. However, I'm always lusting over friends nut tools.
My biggest complaint is that many other tools come with a built-in way to connect this to a harness. One of my friends has a nut tool with an extendable leash (it is coiled like a telephone cord, which makes it easy to access the tool from the harness), and others have tools with a built-in clip or carabiner.
As another user commented, the design also has sharper edges which are a little rough on the hands. The BD nut tool works, but its pretty bare bones and unexciting as far as gear goes.

This is the only piece of BD equipment I complain about. The sharp edges on the handle make it hard on the hands when prying, pounding, and cussing to remove stuck gear, especially when striking with the heal of the hand. Keep the bottle opener and price point :-)
