There are similarities and differences between the Gerber multitool and tools made by Leatherman. Some of the Gerber tools are accessed by opening the handles, but unique to Gerber is a system in which the pliers slide straight out from the end. This allows the Gerber to be flicked open easily with one hand, a useful advantage if the other hand is occupied. The sliding Safe-T-Loc system (similar to the Blacie Collins "Bolt Action" lock) locks each tool securely in place.[dead link]
Different sizes of Gerber tool are available, with various combinations of components from the mundane (screwdrivers) to the esoteric (demolition detonator crimps), and from the key-chain sized, like the "Shortcut" to hefty, 8-ounce (227 g) models like the "Diesel".[dead link]
