Better than keys – in every way!
Prestaratchet advances the art of wrenching bicycles. Consider the irony of using an Allen or Torx® key on your expensive and delicate bike parts. Tools like that come free with un-assembled furniture. Isn’t your bike worthy of better? Prestaratchet is faster, safer, less expensive, longer lasting and more comfortable than any key.
Prestaratchet is always in position to get the whole job done. Spin a loose bolt snug with the thumb-wheel, then tighten with the handle. Flick the reverse lever with the same thumb to loosen. You can operate Prestaratchet with one hand and hold a brake cable with the other. Tighten and loosen as many times as you want to get the perfect cable position – and never move your hand or remove the tool in the process.
With an Allen or Torx® key, each time you tighten or loosen a bolt – you remove and re-insert the tool multiple times. Twisting, turning and inserting – each time is a chance to get the Allen or Torx® key crooked and damage expensive bicycle bolts. With Prestaratchet’s reversible ratchet and thumb-wheel, the tool stays on-the-job without any additional insertions.
Prestacycle’s Bicycle Tool Bit set contains over 20 different tool ends to handle all the latest new components. Price-out the cost of all this tool capability using other more basic tools, and you’ll find Prestaratchet’s savings are substantial.
Eventually the tip of your most commonly-used Allen or Torx® keys can wear out. Then you must replace the whole tool. If it came in a set, getting a match can be time consuming or difficult. With Prestaratchet, you simply replace the bit. The Ratchet handle is made of the finest tool-grade metals and will likely last a lifetime.
Our handle provides a firm grip and contours to the palm of your hand to eliminate the ‘pressure points’ common in Allen or Torx® keys.
How do I trim the bit holder for fewer bits “to-go”?
Lay the bit holder flat and point a razor blade straight down between the number of positions you want to cut. Push straight down for a smooth, even cut.
