The KeyFlip: A simple way to carry your keys and open bottles. Both 4 and 6 Key versions available. Now in Titanium!

About this project

Tired of the same old keychain? Want a change?  Check out the KeyFlip. It is a stylish, innovative, post modern industrial way of carrying your keys. Impress your friends and co-workers! 

I have a small mill that I converted to a CNC that I have been making prototypes on. I originally made the KeyFlip out of MDF wood to test the concept. I then made it out of aluminum which made the KeyFlip strong, sturdy, and fashionable. It allows up to 4 standard house/work keys to be flipped out at any time (6 Key version now available). I also used a small bushing to go inside the housing so the keys are not loose and won't slide out on their own. If you give a light push on the indented corner, the keys will rotate out. 

My Goal- 

My Goal is to move up to a better Mill which will be stronger and faster, so I can make more creative designs out of Stainless Steel and Titanium. With a better mill I will be able to make multiple KeyFlips at once, instead of making them one by one. My Dream Mill is the Tormach 1100!!! Also, I will be able to make some other creative products that I have designed and you will like.

The KeyFlip-

I am going to offer 3 different materials for the KeyFlip: Aluminum 6061-T6, Stainless Steel T-303, and Titanium.  Each one will have a brushed finish. You can add custom engraving as well (20 character max on one line). Check out the rewards.

The dimensions of the KeyFlip are 1" x 2.75" x .5" (L x W x H).

Types of Keys:

Most keys fit the KeyFlip. If any of your keys don't fit the KeyFlip, any hardware store will have one that will fit and you can cut.

See how easy it is to add keys to the KeyFlip!

Thank You all for taking the time to look at my project. Please look over the rewards that I have to offer and consider backing The KeyFlip. You will help me achieve my dream of making more creative projects!!! 

Also a big thanks to Brad over at Bottle Grenade who helped me add features to the KeyFlip!!

Risks and challenges

I am very confident in this project, I have made several of the prototypes. The risks and challenges would depend on the demand. All of the KeyFlips will be made in the USA and inspected by me.
