The 'Action Hero Toolkit'

Need to jimmy your way out of any situation without making a fuss or carrying around a large rucksack to hold all of your implements? Well, look no further.

The Action Hero Toolkit is a pocket-sized tin that houses everything you may need to save the day. Well, provided that the problem at hand isn't that world-threatening.

Inspired by 80s TV legend MacGyver, the kit includes a pin, a single match, a rubber band, a piece of unchewed bubble gum, a birthday candle, a paper clip, a shoelace, a one-cent stamp, and a small piece of duct tape. So yeah, the important thiings.

So whether you need to get out of those handcuffs or distract that henchman or kill that shark or something, it's all easily available in your faded jean pocket.

You can buy a kit for just under $6 (£3.64) at IFixIt.
