About the only tangible drawback of the Multi-Plier 600 is that it can't illuminate the dark places and times of the world. That's why we teamed it with our sturdy, rugged Firecracker L.E.D. in our ballistic nylon sheath. Together, these Gerber mainstays make a pretty dang good maintenance kit. One that can perform 24/7. The Firecracker generates a longer distance beam and increased spot brightness than other lights in its class. This is the essence of portable luminosity talk about your dime store words and it's all powered by one simple AA battery. The Multi-Plier 600 sometimes works as if it's power-assisted by batteries, because the pliers open so easily using just one hand. But the true story is our patented one-handed opening mechanism. So you can work with the 600 in one hand, and the Firecracker in the other.
