The Keyport is a modular multitool for your keys and Swiss army knife
Why carry both your keys and your Swiss Army knife when you can just carry one object that contains both? If you’ve been lamenting the weightiness of your pockets or your purse and searching desperately for a way to organize the clutter that is your keychain, there may be a solution for you. Meet Keyport, a modular access device that consolidates all of your essential (or semi-essential) everyday items into a single device. And best of all, thanks to KeyportID, an online lost and found service, you shouldn’t have to worry about losing your Keyport either.
The pocket-ready device is not only a key organizer but also features a Swiss army knife whose extensions include a USB flash drive, mini-flashlight, bottle opener, and of course, a pocketknife. That means that whether you need to open your front door or open a file on your computer, the Keyport has you covered.
Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the Keyport is its modular design, which means that you can continue adding features and attachments to your heart’s content. Made entirely of metal, the original Keyport device is the Pivot, which boasts a “unique locking mechanism” to provide the “perfect tension to ensure smooth operation.” Promising not to loosen over time, the Pivot will hold up to up to nine keys, or up to 15 with an expansion pack.
If you lose your Pivot, don’t worry — it’s engraved with a unique serial number that finders can easily plug into an online portal, helping to connect owners with their Pivots with just a click. To be fair, that is not quite as simple as having a Tile or other Bluetooth tracker, but it’s better than nothing. And given that your Pivot will likely contain everything important, it’s obviously crucial to have a way to recover it in case of misplacement.
The Keyport line is currently available in three anodized aluminum colors — red, black, and silver. When ordering one of these organizers, you can go through an entire customization process, deciding among colors, additional inserts, expansion packs, and modules. The Pivot starts at $20, but of course, if you want to add more bells and whistles, you could soon carry your whole life in your pocket.
