What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Hi Kickstarters,

We are excited to introduce KEYANCHOR, the world’s smallest multi-tool and key organizer.  

KEYANCHOR is a universal micro key-organizer, cleverly designed to elegantly and silently anchor your keys and function as a bottle opener and multi-tool. CNC Machined from grade 5 titanium, it will last a lifetime. KEYANCHOR is the result of months of work, we hope you can help us bring it to life.

The Challenge

Our dream was to create an elegant multi-functional key organizer that was truly lightweight, silent and packed with features while allowing us to quickly find the right key and fitted all the keys we use every day, we think we've done this.

We believe the best tools are the ones you have on you, no matter what life throws at you. Designed to stay concealed inside your keys until it is needed, KEYANCHOR includes a pry bar, flat head screwdriver and bottle opener – because you should always be able to crack a cold one!


Silence is golden

KEYANCHOR silences your keys with its custom spring design, engineered to apply an even and constant force to your keys, eliminating those irritating jingles while keeping your keys organized.


Packed with features

Don’t be fooled, it might be light and small but rest assured KEYANCHOR can be relied upon and is packed with 12 features!


How to Use

KEYANCHOR allows you to neatly organize yours keys in priority order, by location or even by size.


Quick and easy to use

1. Unclip the split ring

2. Stack your keys

3. Add the spring

4. Secure the split ring and you’re ready to go.

Made to Last

Each KEYANCHOR is precision machined using state of the art CNC technology from a solid billet of space grade titanium and then individually engraved with our KEYANCHOR logo.

Every KEYANCHOR will be assembled and inspected individually here in our workshop before being packaged and shipped to you.

Titanium for life

We are using grade 5 titanium, a material that is ultra-light weight, super strong, rust proof and incredibly beautiful. Spaceships are made from this stuff so we felt it was perfect for your Everyday Carry (EDC).


Light as a feather, solid as a rock

Each KEYANCHOR weighs just 0.037 oz (1g), for comparison a bottle cap is 2 grams.

Universal

Key organizers we’ve used in the past have not worked well with lots of different keys, long or odd shaped keys didn’t fit, we wanted to solve that. We designed KEYANCHOR with all keys in mind. The split ring can be used to add bulky keys such as your car keys, also great to hook onto your bag or coat.

Ready for adventure

You can use it as a key organizer or on its own! That’s why we’ve designed KEYANCHOR to be used solo. We love to travel light, carrying just the bare essentials. Perfect for those spontaneous adventures into the wilderness.

Rewards

After sharing KEYANCHOR on Social Media please send us an email with a Screenshot of the post to - [email protected] with the subject "I've Shared KEYANCHOR!" - You will then receive a free upgrade to a superlight Titanium Split Ring!

Will it fit my keys?

Universal is a bold claim, after extensive research we have designed the body to fit all keys using KEYANCHORs unique faceted body. There is no minimum or maximum length of key that will fit.

The hole in the key needs to between 4mm (0.157) - 10mm (0.393). If the hole is bigger than 10mm it needs to be placed in the middle of the stack

Front hole option

Due to popular request we are offering a front hole version of KEYANCHOR. You will be able to choose which hole design you would like in the final survey.

 In order to bring KEYANCHOR to life, we really need your support. Not only does this mean pledging for a KEYANCHOR, but also sharing this project with your friends. Something as simple as tweeting about our page or following us on Instagram will go a long way to the success of KEYANCHOR. So please take a moment and click on the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram links below and help make KEYANCHOR a reality.

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter campaign, so we are learning about the best ways to manage the campaign and offer pledges that are great value for you the backers.

For the last six months we have been testing prototypes and refining the production. We have a small team in place with a broad skill base that have carefully prepared for the KEYANCHOR launch and are confident that we can deliver even if our goals are exceeded.

We appreciate the trust and commitment of the Kickstarter community and do not want to over promise. We have a detailed production plan and schedule in place, so we will be able to assess and manage the risks appropriately.

Even the best made plans can go wrong and there are always unanticipated challenges but we are committed to resolving any issues and most importantly plan on being totally honest and open along the way with you the backers. Keeping you up to date with regular updates and progress reports.

We anticipate that we will have all KEYANCHORs made and shipped to you by November 2017.
