  • Patent number: 9517569
    Abstract: The invention relates to a pocket tool with a housing, a compartment region, pins (11a, 11b) and an implement (13) interchangeably mounted on one of the pins (11a, 11b) by means of a coupling mechanism (22) and which can be moved by means of a pivot bearing (18) between an inwardly pivoted transport position and an outwardly pivoted functional position, which is mounted against a spring element and can be moved relative to the pin (11a, 11b) into an uncoupling position and removed from the pocket tool. The coupling mechanism (22) has a guide track guiding the implement (13) in the uncoupling position at an angle with respect to a longitudinal axis (68) of the housing (2) during its uncoupling movement along the compartment region.
