Turn Any Belt into a Utility Belt with the SOG Sync II Belt Buckle

The SOG Sync II is not your typical multitool.  Yes, the solid steel body opens into a pair of pliers.  Yes, there are 11 incredibly nifty tools that fold out at a moment’s notice.  Where the Sync II really stands out is with a feature that multitools have never offered… Holding up your pants.

The SOG Sync II is an 11-in-1 multitool that folds into a square that can then be clipped onto its included holster.  The metal holster can attach onto your belt of choice and be worn as a belt buckle, or clip onto other things like a backpack strap.

What makes the tool hugely convenient is that it can be detached from the base with one hand, making it readily accessible at all times.   When not in use it’s designed to stay securely locked in place, even during movement.

Making a real utility belt work in real life is bit like wearing kneepads everywhere.  Yes, you are safer and more prepared, but it’s not exactly convenient.  Or fashionable.

That’s what makes the Sync II really shine.  Not only can you tighten-up any nearby bolts in seconds, but also forget it’s even there when you’re not using it.

Even Batman doesn’t have a phillips-head and pair of scissors in his utility belt.

Can your buckle fix a wobbly chair?

The sync II fits belts up to 1-3/4″, while smaller belts can be paired with the SOG Sync 1, which offers most of the same tools in a smaller package.
