About

Magnetic KeyClip: Better Key Holder for Your Outdoor Fun

 Great for you to:

detach your key easily and keep it secure

while you enjoy the great outdoors

Love to run, jog, or simply go for a walk with your dog? If you’ve ever wanted to do these things unencumbered with house keys, consider the Magnetic KeyClip.

It’s the perfect solution to avoid the uneasiness that comes from leaving a key under the doormat or the annoying jingling sound that comes from keys hooked to your pants or belt.

Magnetic KeyClip securely holds your key.

Three features keep your key secure: 

  • The pocket lining is made from stretchy fabric, which holds the key tightly. 
  • The fold itself functions as a cover for the pocket, which makes the key fall proof. 
  • The magnets in the two arms firmly hold it together with the cloth in between. 

Magnetic KeyClip is easy to use.

The KeyClip comes with a linker with snap hooks at each end. Freeing your key from the key chain is easy.

To use, just insert the key in the pouch of the KeyClip and clasp it around the neckline or waistband of your clothing. That’s it. The whole process takes less than five seconds.

Magnetic KeyClip is stylish.

Its unique design allows it to be worn with your own style. Its small size adds no bulk to your clothing, allowing it to be a seamless addition to your sporting gear. The best part is that it adds to the beauty of your outfit.

Magnetic KeyClip is compact and can fit keys of every size.

Minimalist in design, this product is intended to be about the size of the key. Currently we offer two different sizes that fit most of the keys in the market. We will contact you for your desired KeyClip size should the campaign be successful. 

Magnetic KeyClip comes in eight colors to match your gear.

Whichever colors you like to wear, we have colors to match or complement.

Product Conception and Development

I am a devout runner and enjoy the green trails of San Antonio. When running, I would tie my key to the drawstring of my shorts. It was a good enough method to keep my key in check, or so I thought, though I one day lost the key when my tying skills weren’t up to par.

Why should my chosen knots determine whether or not I could get into my house after my run?

I needed a new system that would keep my house key safe while allowing the full enjoyment of my chosen sport. I tried the shoe wallet available in the market but tying it with the shoestring was quite tedious. One day, I noticed the magnetic paper clip hanging on my refrigerator in a new light. Boom, I can just make a clip using magnets and a pocket for my key. The first design was the result of a quick weekend project, but it needed functionality and style. It took my wife and me couple of months before we settled on the present design.

KeyClip looked sleek when used with a single key, but everyone I know, myself included, carries a multitude of keys strung on a keychain. However, we don’t need to carry the whole keychain when we run. That’s why we designed a "Linker" with snap hooks at both ends that connect to a single key. It made the key detaching process very simple.

 After I began to wear the KeyClip, its minimalist feature captivated my friends. Using them as a test audience, I made more for them to use. The feedback was unanimous: the KeyClip is very simple and highly functional yet stylish and elegant. I thought, “If it worked for me and my friends, I’m sure others could finally use a functional tool like this.”

This will be my first experience of mass manufacturing, so I invited my friend Shan to team up with KeyClip. He has several years of experience with small handbag manufacturing and merchandising. We had two options: outsource production to China or stick with local manufacturing. Though outsourcing would help us to manufacture more economically, we decided that quality assurance and on-time production would be vital for our success in Kickstarter. We have already identified and contacted one small-scale and another medium-scale manufacturer here in Texas. Based on our funding success, we will select the right one. The estimated timeframe to deliver the final product was based on time required to manufacture at either facility. We added a month to the schedule to make sure we can deliver to you on time.

Risks and challenges

The risk to accomplish this project is very low.

The product will be made in the USA using only superior quality materials.

We have already spent several months working out the details for manufacturing and distribution, which uses a robust system. We have identified and received the quote from some prestigious manufacturers.

However, this is our first Kickstarter project, and we may not have seen some potential obstacles. In such a scenario, we will do whatever it takes to complete the project without compromising the quality of the product or service to potential customers.

As a Kickstarter backer, you’ll receive regular updates as we go through the product manufacturing and distribution process.
