(TV: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Fragments) It muted sound systems (TV: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Exit Wounds) and communicated with (TV: Exit Wounds) and blocked Torchwood's communication systems. John used it to travel through the Cardiff Rift. (TV: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang)

John lost his manipulator to Jack Harkness while on the RMS Titanic in 1912. He was, however, able to escape the sinking of the ship through use of a back-up jump bracelet which returned him to London in 1887 on the day of Queen Victoria's golden jubilee. He proceeded to marry Victoria as a means to eventually take control of the British Empire, creating an alternate timeline where he reigned as king while confined to one time period.
