  • Finally! A pocket tool that is actually convenient! PocketMonkey has twelve functions packed into one millimeter of stainless steel. It's the size of credit card, so you can easily carry it with you at all times. Light-Weight, it only weighs 1 ounce. Ultra-Thin, it is 1 millimeter thin. Convenient, it fits in your wallet. And it is even TSA-compliant!

    See it in action: 


  • Zootility Tools began when industrial engineer Nate Barr locked himself out of his house one too many times. Unable to find a door latch slip he could fit in his wallet, he decided to design one. Nate realized there was a lot of unused space left, so he added a bottle opener, then screw drivers and didn't finish until he had 12 tools in all. He finished it off with a smiling monkey head and the PocketMonkey was born. 

    Nate launched the PocketMonkey on Kickstarter and two weeks later had $27,000 and almost 2000 orders to fulfill. No small feat for someone with a full time job, so Nate enlisted the help of his sister Jenna. They got the orders out, a bit later than expected, but shipped nonetheless.Since then the company has grown to 9 full time employees that work out of offices in Cambridge, MA and a 4,000 Sq. FT facility in Portland, Maine where they produce and finish tools with lasers!
