FAQ

What about my philips, torx, chainbreaker...?

It's always a struggle to decide whether more functions should be added. We've considered adding more tools and functions, but this first iteration will deliver the core innovation with a simple presentation.

This is pretty expensive for just an Allen key set.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to compete on price with established manufacturers of Allen keys. What you are getting for the price is an individually machined, hand-assembled, all-metal tool that is first of its kind.

How strong is TeleHex?

TeleHex is more than strong enough to withstand torques commonly experienced by 3, 4, 5, and 6mm bolts on your bicycle. 3+4mm sizes were tested up to 13Nm and 5+6mm sizes up to 15Nm.

When will I get my TeleHex?

As we begin our first production run after the Kickstarter trial, we anticipate starting to ship preorders in September 2016 (in the order they are placed). We don't anticipate delays, but if there are any, we will let you know.

I want to be a distributor!

We're looking for distributors and resellers around the world. If you'd like to be the first vendor of the world's first self-adjusting hex key in your region, please email peter@telehex.ca
