FOR SALE: Hex bit Strider Spanners

Discussion in 'For Sale: Gadgets & Gear' started by PSD, Mar 11, 2009.

    The new Strider spanners are finally done. Made from hardened and double tempered S7 tool steel. These fit into any ¼" bit screwdriver. My centering pin design keeps the spanner from slipping out and scratching the knife scale. These are designed for function, not for show, and work GREAT! These have received rave reviews elsewhere and now available on BFC. I designed this for the SnG but it fits all full size Strider pivots (SnG, SMF, AR, RCC, GB, XL etc.) wont fit the Hinderer XM 18 (or XM 24) pivot or the small PT Strider.

    Please EMAIL to order one, no need to post here or PM, this works best for me and I will sell them in order of date emails received. Price is $25 + $2 shipping in USA. These are shipped U.S. Postal Service with Delivery Confirmation. Contact me for shipping outside USA. I can accept PayPal if you have a PayPal CONFIRMED address. (No additional PayPal fees). I also accept (and prefer) Postal Money Orders (available at any U.S. Post Office). Email for M.O. mailing address, Thanks
    UPDATE: I now also have a nicer "deluxe" version of this tool, scroll down page a little for pix and info. I also have a double ended spanner key wrench that fits Strider and Hinderer *HERE*

    I now have a newer version of this tool available. This spanner is same as the other one except for the following upgrades:
    * Made from hardened and twice tempered 440C stainless blade steel.
    * Has an easily removable split ring so you can carry it on a keychain.
    * Has a T-10 torx tip on the end of the centering pin.

    These 'deluxe' tools are $32 each + $2 for shipping. Shipping price is per package, not per tool, so if you ordered 2 of these shipping would still be $2 total. (The 'economy' version is still available for $25 + $2 shipping)

    Recieved one of the Deluxe models yesterday for my AR. This may be the nicest bit for a bit driver that I've never handled. A lot of attention and time went into these things. Worked like a charm and is a must if you own a Strider folder.

    Jun 9, 2007
    No, never made a tool for the PT. I think you can use a regular screwdriver though. Thanks

    When using this tool, do you need to insert a hex key on the opposite side too?

    IIRC, the non-hex side (with the flat tip screwdriver opening) is splined into the G-10; so only a hex drive is required (except for the new 3 hole pivot).

    Yes. I usually use the PSD tool to hold that side and turn the hex drive side.

    Very nice! Do you happen to know what size Torx to fit the Hinderer LockBar Stabilizer bolt on a Strider SMF? I'm going to go with T7.
