Carried a lock last year and it really annoyed me, thinking the same of a tool, I'll have to check that zip one out. I remember BA talking about the one on the belt, seems like a good idear too.
Lock your lock to the rack silly

It's the best deal ever, I've all ready had 2 sets of them sent to me.

I was trading them on Craigslist for lift tickets last year & I sold @ least 30.
Got another set coming to me as we speak.

As far as irons and tuning stuff I would say just go with the dakine super tune i think its called that comes with the iron/waxing tools, edge sharpener, file, etc....ive seen oneballjay ones too i think. If your looking cheap you could find a shitty old clothes iron and buy a scraper and buffer.

I like the metal scrapers better but its nice having both

+1. Yup, most resorts have tool benches, so I stopped carrying mine. I use a Dakine t-shaped screw driver that I carry on my trips to the slopes. Use it in the evenings if I need to adjust binding and stuff.

BAH I say! Maybe I've been lucky, or maybe our tools are less abused and the security cables longer, but I've never had an issue. Although as I mentioned above, if you put your board together right you shouldn't have to retighten anything at the hill.

Plus tool-less bindings are your friend

I already carry a cell phone, lock, lip shit and some cash. I'd rather not carry anything else on the hill!

That only works if you are always locking your board at the same chalet. Out here I could be a half hour board away from the main lodge at several hills, so I keep it in my pocket to lock up at mid-mountain or back bowl lodges...

Plus the "ski key" lock is so small it doesn't bother me in my pocket.

if i carry anything its usually the burton bullet tool. not quite as small as the burton slim but still not too bulky. with the flip up handle and ratchet it makes it easier to loosen and tighten on the go.
