The TaskOne G3 Pro is a “modern-day Swiss Army Knife” that comes equipped with 22 tools. This case will be able to fix your bike, tighten a screw and open a bottle. It’s not bulky, either; it’s as thin (or thinner) than many other iPhone cases. It fastens to your phone with one small screw, and features the following tools:

  • 2.5” removable knife with serrations
  • 1.8” Sawblade
  • small and large flathead screwdrivers
  • medium Phillips screwdriver
  • pliers with integrated 3-6mm wrench

  • 6 metric Allen wrenches (bike sizes 2.5-6)
  • spoke wrenches (0.127, 0.130)
  • wire stripper
  • ruler
  • bottle opener
  • kickstand.

The case also has a raised bezel on the front, keeping the screen safe from damage. It also features enlarged aluminum sliders for easier tool access, a rear bumper for level, no-slip placement on surfaces, upgraded locking mechanism locks knife and Allen wrench simultaneously and silicone rubber bumper surround for increased drop protection and grip.
