HOLD & ORGANIZE YOUR KEYS

Carabinsi will hold your keys wherever you go.

NEW ADDED FUNCTION: Attach up to 6 keys (or even more) to a JIMI TOOL. Currently this function is only available for JIMI TOOL, but new extended goal 6000$ will unlock this function also for JIMI. All the screws and hardware will be included. 

SMART 

Carabinsi are smart, because they will do, what you will program them to do. Inside of Billy and Jimi are 2 NFC chips, which are open-coded, so you will be able to program them by yourself and as many times you want. You can program to share your contact info, open your favourit website, youtube channel, open (social) apps, turn ON/OFF WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and more. And this just with a tap! NO BATTERIES needed! Please check below in presentation for more details.

 OPEN DRINKS

If you get thirsty, they will open bottles and cans.

OPEN BOXES

You got new package? Carabinsi will open it for you!

WRENCH TOOL

Carabinsi can even fix your bike, closet or anything else. Use 1/4" (hex bits) with different adapters.

HOLD YOUR THINGS

Carabinsi are designed to carry keys or small things. Not for climbing.

Are you going hiking? Carabinsi will hold your things in place.

BILLY IS A SPINNER

If you have some free time... spin a Billy! :)

SAFETY

In case of emergency, you can brake glass.

REUSABLE PACKING

We have decided to use a packing which can be later on used in a very practical way. The packing is actually a wallet for coins and paper bank notes.

 LOGO OPTIONS

1. Choose COUNTRY FLAG

SUM UP OF FUNCTIONS

Are you excited to meet them? Well... they are for sure excited to meet you! :)

WE HAVE 4 PRODUCTS:

TIMELINE

is a shape of a guitar with a logo and an NFC chip. The idea for this shape came from love for music.

Do you have a friend who plays guitar??

Please share our project with him or her! :)

In our everyday lifes, we are dealing with keys. We have different kinds of keychains, but not many of them are personalised and useful at the same time.

That's why we have decided to go on a mission to create carabiners, that will solve our everyday obstacles and can be personilised. To make carabiners even more innovative, we have added a NFC technology, which make them smart. What you will program them to do, they will do it just with a tap!

NFC (Near Field Communication) is a set of short-range wireless technologies, typically requiring a distance of 2 cm or less. NFC chip need NO BATTERY.

NFC function on your smart phone, can be turned ON all the time. According to personal expiriences of me and my friends, a NFC battery consumption on our smart phones is negligible. NFC works only with unlocked screen.

NFC is more known as technology for mobile payments and creative marketing, but that is not all, what NFC can do. Most of the recent Android mobile devices support NFC.

Check if your phone has a NFC on this link--> Phones with NFC

iPhone 6 has a NFC but unfortunately cannot read or write NFC tags, but according to CNET information, we have 75% chances, this function will be implemented in next iPhone. Hooray! Get ready! :)

You have NFC?

NO -> Luckily, you can still use a multi-function carabiner :)

YES -> Get yourself a multifunctional carabiner and at the same time "meet" the NFC technology.

The best thing is, that you will get open code NFC chip and you will be able to program it by yourself. -->That is so easy... just download one of the many free NFC programming apps from Google Play or any other apps store and you can start.

There are many fun and practical things you can do with NFC. And this just with a tap! Please check below:

 Carabinsi can open doors with NFC technology

If you have the NFC door lock, you can ask your door lock producer to program NFC chip inside of Carabinsi, so you will be able to unlock your doors. 

The begining of Carabinsi takes us to January 2014, when we started drawing our first prototypes.

Sketches
Sketches

Every time we received prototypes, we tested them whether they had the functions we wanted and whether everything was running smoothly. To be honest, only the fourth version of the prototypes was the correct one and had all the functions and design that we wanted, so we have had quite some development expenses already.

Production
Production

Carabinsi are produced from stainless steel with a laser cut technology. After the laser-cut, there is still quite some work to do. We then have to round the edges with stone tumbling, make the open-close clip and insert it, add the socket for the logo, put the NFC inside the socket, design and print the logo, cut it, put it in and seal it. All of this is mostly manual work.

The Carabinsi project is only funded if it reaches or exceeds its goal of $3000 or more.

After the project is a success, we will send out a survey, where you will give us details about your products and address.

Once the money will become available, we will order the material and ask our producer to run his laser cutting machine. This will take approximately 14 days. When we receive lasercut carabiners, we will immediately start the manual work, so they will be available for you, as soon as possible.

We will keep you updated about our project, production steps and website development.

I am Rok and I am very enthusiastic about the project.

I have decided to present it on Kickstarter, because I am sure that it could be interesting for many people. Besides that, I would also like them to get familiar with the NFC technology, which is not very popular (yet), but I believe it has a lot of potential.

 Business adviser: Niko Klansek

We have loads of ideas and wish to develop more functional products and share them with you.

Risks and challenges

We have made 4 prototypes already, so we are confident about the production process. We have all the tools we need, plus we know the company that will do the laser cutting, so we are confident about the quality, as well.

We are aware that there might be some challenges, in case of huge amount of orders, but we are pretty sure, that we will go about that systematically.

We will keep you updated about any issues and challenges, that will appear during our project.

Any kind of support will be most appreciated. Thank you.
