      Looks like it's just going to arrive in the mail. :) Love it and thanks Adam!

      Will you be replying to this e-mails? Or will we just end up getting a Keysquare in the mail at some future point?

    4. Creator Andrew l Williams on June 8, 2013

      Sent an email :)

      I still have not received my Keysquare.

    6. Creator Eric Chon on June 4, 2013

      I am still waiting for mine, though perhaps it's in the mail? Either way, I just wrote you. Hope it arrives soon as I am eagerly anticipating replacing my carabiner. :)

      Loving mine. Thanks Adam!

      Got mine today. Very happy! Hasn't fallen off any loops for me but then I usually don't care it I miss a bus. Haven't seen how the bottle opener lip stands up, that's tonight's mission

      I also love my Keysquare, and would further echo Anthony's post. Though I handle point 3 by having the keysquare attached to a locking carabiner giving extra length.
      Wishing Adam and his crew all the best.

      I agree with Anthony's post. The best loop the keysquare hangs from is the loop right over your thigh. If you want it to hang from the loop on your hip, it's in more danger of coming off when you sit down and your keys make contact with your seat. I had it on my hip just the other day and when I came back from the bathroom, I found my keys on my seat. Thankfully my gf was still in the booth.

      Had mine for a few weeks. Used it several times already in "emergency" situations. Came in very handy. Thanks Adam.

    12. Creator Jim Cramer on June 3, 2013

      Got mine last week, I love it! Thanks for the hard work and great product.

      I got Keysquare and it's a great product. Very well built and it came in very handy while tailgating this weekend.

      Well worth the wait.

      I like my Keysquare, but I have a few recommendations if you ever care to make a 2.0:

      > Unless I'm wearing my heaviest jeans, the keysquare falls off of my belt loop about 3 times a week. This happens when I'm running across the street (the most inopportune time) or if it's on my back loop and I slouch down on the couch. Perhaps add an elbow to the entrance channel to prevent this.

      >The bottle opener is too thin and sharp. If I use the keysquare on the rim of my pocket, the bottle opener will catch on the inner fabric, making it difficult to remove. The bottle opener also shows wear almost immediately, which I attribute to its thickness. Maybe make it thicker and span the entire width of the keysquare so it doesn't catch and stands up to more use.

      >The keysquare is a great size, but I was hoping it would be larger, even though the dimensions were clearly labeled. If it was a little longer, it could hang from my belt loop and rest in my pocket when I don't want to hear it jingle.

      Otherwise, I like the build of the piece and its look. Thanks for putting all of this together.

      Again, Thanks for that awesome Product :) enjoying it very much.
