As decreed by DC Comics, September 17 is Batman Day! Fans around the world will virtually come together to celebrate The Caped Crusader. As we gear up for the event we wonder what essentials Batman might keep in his utility belt. Sure you’ve got your standard Batarangs and grappling hooks, but what about duct tape? Surely that’s a daily necessity around Gotham. Let’s take a look at some of Batman‘s other tools…
Batman Multi-tool Keychain from Box Lunch Gifts
Even if you event the Batcave via waterfall, which seems like a terrible security door, you’ll still need a set of keys for something around Wayne Manor. When it comes to Bat-tools, nothing is as it seems and this isn’t your average keychain—it’s a bottle opener, crosshead screwdriver, and flathead all in one. Bat-tastic!
Batman Letter Opener from Think Geek
Even Batman gets mail (although most of it is just hate-mail from the Riddler because there’s nothing funnier than sending snail mail instead of email in this digital age). This letter opener will help Batsy get through all that junk mail.
Batman Travel Cup from Hot Topic
Hydration is important when you’re on the run. Sure the overly excessive branding may seem like a bit much but Batman has never been one to be subtle when it comes to logos. The straw is key to this cup, because how else are you going to sip from under the cowl?
Mini Batsignal from Think Geek
What do you do when you need to summon the Bat but you only have that awful Gotham cell service? Never fear, now Batman can leave you one of these teeny tiny batsignals. Just under 3-inches it’s an easy way to get help in your time of need.
Batman Duct Tape by Scotch
Forget all those other gizmos—this is the ultimate tool. Duct tape can hoist you up the tallest building in a single bound! Wait, wrong…nevermind. Still, Batman undoubtedly will be able to get himself out of any jam with a good old roll of duct tape, guaranteed.
