I have a leatherman wave, which I wear every day across all the primary schools I work in. I have "trained" my self to press the pouch in every time I leave a room I've used it in just to be 100% safe.
I've had a couple of people question it but normally once they see the knife is one part of it they don't really see it as an issue.
I'd be lost without it, especially after I got the extra screw driver bits for it, its now got all the hexagonal and torx bits as well a few sizes of phillips and flat.
lol I paid for ours from our maintenance budget
Generally speaking, if you're not being an idiot, nothing will happen. If you are being any sort of an idiot and plod discovers a lock or pocket knife, they may use it as a reason to arrest you, regardless of whether your possession was legal at the time or not.
*our school is private property (buildings and grounds owned by private trust), yours may not be.

Can't say that I've ever needed any sort of multitool in the 17years I've worked in schools.
I had mine from my Army days (Bought Cheaply in an American PX in Sarajevo!) Always had it on my belt then so when i left I carried on wearing it in work, until someone pointed out that I couldn't. It didn't bother me I just ended up removing/swapping kit out and fixing it in dedicated workspace.
I'm pondering this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENJn...layer_embedded seems highly practical!
The bolt override and detonator insertion tool especially useful.

My wife does not like anything belt mounted so I am not allowed out the house with it!!
I'd be concerned about carrying one on your belt, not for safety but because it looks ridiculous!
