I love it so far.  It feels very sturdy and i like how the pliers rebound.  I used it to tighten some screws on a gate I'd been meaning to get to.  It worked well.

I'm carrying it in my Jeep for now.

I broke my Suspension at the pliers hinge point while using it as a pair of pliers on a right to left twisting motion to break off a piece of flat steel I was shaping into a training blade. I got 5 good years of hard use out of it and it can still go in a 72 hour kit as a multi use cutting tool.

I was going to pick up another Suspension but I was at Lowes today and took a liking to a SOG Powerlock.

I'll run it through it's paces tomorrow when I take care of some Saturday projects and I'll post a review. So far so good...and like Gerber, it's made in the USA.

Shut. Up.

It healed up fine, I can still shoot without it and we are done having kids anyway...

Gerber should repair your Suspension.  I broke the pliers on my previous one, can't remember which model and Gerber repaired it and sent it back.  All I paid was getting it to them.

Another happy suspension user, if I'm outside the house it rides on my hip.  The only reason I bought it though was I lost my last Gerber.   :'(

Hmmm. Derrrrrr.  :facepalm  I don't know why I didn't think of that. Thanks. I loved my Suspension so it's worth a try.

I've got an old original Leatherman and almost never use it. I do always carry a set of fullsize visegrips in my back pocket that get used a whole lot more. Pliers, striking tool, and also good if you need to go up somebody's head.

I don't THINK I'll ever have to face down routers in the streets.

I should hope not. Mobs of rogue woodworking tools would suck to repel.

Had the samething with a multi-tool. No problems. Recently had several co-workers go the the P.I. for some charity project. Suggested they take several multi's and leatherman's and give them as "Thanks".  Says the npeople ncouldn't thank them enough.  :)
