Hyde takes the venerable painter’s 5-in-1 tool and adds a bit holder and storage for four bits in the handle, in addition to the paint scraper, drywall knife, roller cleaner, crack cleaner, and hammer. Evidently it’s supposed to save you from grabbing for a screwdriver when you need to remove hardware for painting.
Starting with the butt end, Hyde rounds the hammer head to prevent ripping drywall paper and gives the bit holder an internal spring clip for keeping bits in place. They only over-mold the handle where it’s needed for grip, so it won’t stick in your pocket, and they tuck the bit carrier out of the way in the handle. The hardened .065″-thick blade performs the traditional functions of a 5-in-1 tool.
If five functions aren’t enough for you, Hyde’s 10-in-1 tool runs about $10.
