How it works

Win a Leatherman Sidekick Multi-Tool worth over £60 (CLOSED)

Leatherman multi tool

In 1975, mechanical engineering graduate Tim Leatherman embarked on a European road trip in his cranky $300 Fiat. Travelling on a shoe-string budget, a humble scout knife was the only tool he had for everyday tasks; from slicing bread to fixing dodgy hotel plumbing and keeping his trusty car on the road. But what Tim really needed was a pair of pliers. And so, the idea for the world’s first Leatherman multi-tool was born.

Now the brand is giving one lucky winner a chance to win the Leatherman Sidekick multi-tool.
