ShieldX - The Coolest Way to Carry Your Keys

$86,470

1,600

We’re back! After the successful funding of nearly $200,000 from our previous campaign and delivering the rewards on time, The Moose Workstation Bag, here we are with an other exciting campaign. Introducing — ShieldX Key Holder "The Coolest Way to Carry Your Keys"

ShieldX is a patent pending, chrome plated aerospace aluminum & carbon fiber key holder that holds up to 8-10 keys inside its strong, compact compartment. Each key is easily accessible with a simple flick motion when you need to use them.

The keys are held in a fashion that makes them not only easily accessible but still fully functional. Even car keys can be attached to this nifty and stylish key holder that is probably the most impressive, functional and practical thing in your pocket.

At first glance, it seems impossible to get into the aluminum shell. The whole unit looks as if it was manufactured with keys inside and there seems to be no way to open it. This is all part of the ingenuity of the design and of course a wow factor. Fits up to 8-10 keys depending of the thickness of your keys.

The strong aircraft aluminum case may look like a solid and fully enclosed unit but it opens up in a simple way using something nearly everyone carries in their pocket at all times. The whole unit opens up using just a small coin, and setting the keys inside is just as simple, and once you have the keys in place you simply place the two parts of the shell together and twist with the coin again. Even James Bond would struggle to be this inventive! 

Keys on key rings will soon be a thing of the past thanks to ShieldX. Unsightly bunches of keys have never really been cool but now keys are cool. Even if you only have one key you can make that key cool by carrying it in this key holder. Key rings are untidy, clumsy and the keys, with their sharp edges, catch the insides of your pockets and rip holes in them perfect for coins to fall through. This sleek, attractive and extremely practical key holder will certainly see you having no more holes in your pockets. 

"There is a mixture of different shapes, patterns and angles, giving an extremely unique and different look that is sure to stand out amongst the crowd."

The lightweight key holder is made from hi tech and very impressive high gloss, chrome plated aircraft aluminum/carbon fiber and is virtually indestructible. In addition the carbon fiber top gives it some added style and extra strength without adding weight. Just by pulling the unit out of your pocket you will have your friends drooling all over you because the item is so unique and cool. They certainly won’t believe you when you tell them it is a key holder.

The key holder looks nothing like a key holder and this device will change the way you look at your keys forever, it may also get you thinking about how many keys you actually need. This high quality, extremely strong and good looking aluminum key holder with a carbon fiber front is the most sensible and innovative way to carry your keys.

Keys are something we all have, Keys are part of life. Now ask yourself these simple questions:

  • Do you fumble for keys in your pocket? 
  • Do you have an unsightly bunch of keys on a lanyard that just look a mess? 
  • Have you ever wondered how to make keys and the way you carry them look uber stylish? 

There is an answer to each of these questions and the answer is a really stylish key holder made from moulded aircraft aluminum. The answer is a gadget: that will have the jaws of all your friends dropping in amazement as you show them how you carry your keys.

"ShieldX key holder looks like something a super smooth action hero might carry."
"ShieldX key holder looks like something a super smooth action hero might carry."

ShieldX is more than just a key holder that keeps your keys organized. We were inspired to design our key holder by the shield symbols that we've seen in the video and card games that super heroes carry with them. We wanted to make it functional so everyone who carries ShieldX would feel like a super hero! One thing that many people wish they had with them but don’t is a bottle opener. This key holder has a bottle opener built in, so when you are at party or bbq and someone comes with bottles that need opening all you have to do is snap open your key holder and you soon become the hero of the day. But wait there is more…

Keep It Organized!
Keep It Organized!

Not only does the key holder have a bottle opener but the bottle opener itself is multifunction. By thinking out of the box, everything about this amazing and super stylish key holder is practical and stylish. The whole unit fits in with the modern lifestyle where good looks and functionality must combine.

With this stylish and hugely practical key holder, the bottle opener also acts as a box and carton opener. The edge is just sharp enough and easily strong enough to cut through package tapes. So next time a package arrives and you need to open it, you can simply reach into your pocket and pull out your key holder and cut open the box. This looks really cool when others are struggling to find something to open their package and you bring out you nifty device. However, there is still further functionality from this stylish device. Yes there is more to the “but wait there is more”

It did not take a lot of thinking to see how the bottle opener and box opener could soon become a three in one tool making this key holder more than just a key holder. Yes, the with the simple inclusion of the flip-out tool that opens bottles and boxes, it made sense to make the item a screw driver as well. Every man knows that there comes a time where a screwdriver is needed and there is never one around.

Attach Your Car Keys To The Included Loop Piece

Due to popular demand, we are bringing back The Moose Designs Workstation Bag as an add-on bonus to our current campaign, ShieldX Key Holder.

With your help, we can start a second production run of the Moose Designs Workstation Bag. All of the original tooling and pattern costs have been set up. Now, we're just in need of funding to get started on our production.

With all the style and functionality built into this practical moulded aircraft aluminum key holder the one thing that has not been overlooked is quality. The materials that we used in the production of the unit have been selected especially for this item. Aircraft aluminum is special grade aluminum that is extra strong and extra light, these two properties are intrinsically important for this key holder to work as keeping things light is imperative. Adding in the carbon fiber front also adds strength but also makes the front look very unique.

The design and manufacturing process have both been carefully thought through. Your keys are important to you, so every component has been quality engineered to protect your keys and not just hold them so you can carry them in style. 

We spend over 7 months to try different shapes, functions, and designs until we reached to the point where we are now. We are so happy to finalize the design with the most innoviative and stylish way to carry our keys.

The reason we decided to use aircraft aluminum is that it's very durable, rust resistant and light weight however we also wanted to give glossy feel to it so we decided to chrome plate on all around the shell. Finally, for increasing the look and the strength, we added 2mm thick carbon fiber on front.

The chrome plating is the perfect finishing touch that not only looks stylish but tops off the whole emphasis on quality and style. It is the small touches that make this key holder something special and make it the one thing all your friends’ attention.

There are many ways to carry your keys from just holding them loose to putting them on an ever-growing bunch of keys. Today we all live lifestyle that don’t have time and space for hundreds of keys and fashion dictates that bunches of keys are not in fashion. All your keys can be accessed and used with absolute ease and you will never struggle to find a key again. Above all this moulded aircraft aluminum ShieldX is manufactured to exacting standards and raises the bar in terms of key holders by setting a new benchmark for practicality, reliability, endurance and style.

After spending more than 7 months on designing, prototyping and manufacturing the samples. For mass production, we need your support to open a mold and supply the materials in bulk in order to bring to cost of the product down while keeping the high quality. We are confident that with your help, we can successfully stay on our production timeline to deliver your rewards and bring ShieldX key holder to life. 

Thank you for taking the time to check out our project. As a small startup, it means a lot to have your support.

Risks and challenges

This is our second project on Kickstarter and as we promised to our backers in our first project, we started to manufacture right after our campaign ended and shipped out the rewards on time. For our new campaign ShieldX, we are also very confident and we will be able to do the same as we already have fully established relationships with our well experienced manufactures. We received a few questions about the surface so we'd like to be clear about it. The materials that we will use is aluminum and the carbon fiber. The aluminum is chrome plated and the carbon fiber is glued on the front base. Both of the surfaces are not scratch-resistant so during the regular usage you may see some scratches over the ShieldX. Please also note that there will be no exchanges or returns after our Kickstarter campaign ends. Our current design was built as a single sample so during the mass production, product design may be changed according to our manufacturer's machinery needs. Our prices do not include VAT, GST, import duties/charges or other country taxes/fees. If any unseen problem occurs, we will let our backers know about it and we will overcome them easily. Finally, we will share every step of our manufacturing with our backers through updates, including pictures and videos.
