What you'll get:
-KeyPins w/ key-rings for each pocket
-Mounting anchors & screws
KeyDox™ is a hanging system for your keys. Throw that wooden board with hooks away & welcome this elegant aluminum bar with magnetic pockets into your daily routine. Installs to any wall or surface for an unmatched look & function. Round pockets on the front are for the KeyPins which you'll read about next. As a start-up we will be offering a Bright Silver & Black anodized finish. Plus if you're a gold-color enthusiast we will offer a collection made from solid brass. All made in Michigan, USA.
The KeyBars will all be anodized to create a hard coating for scratch & corrosion resistance. The Bright Silver will be dipped in a special solvent prior to anodizing to ensure a shiny machined look while adding protection.
A "KeyPin" made of 400-series stainless steel is attached to your key-ring & when hanging your keys just line up the pin into one of the pockets on the KeyDox™ & watch it get pulled-in by a powerful magnet. Then just lightly pull to dis-attach. These also come in bearing-grade bronze for that gold look. Bronze isn't magnetic so a hole is drilled into the end that is inserted and a steel pin is pressed-in for functionality.
x-Series have a solid back with drilled dowel holes for add-ons.
z-Series have a milled out back for a more stylish look but have no add-on support. (Example x6 or z6)
Full Scenes & Singles:
We offer "Full Scenes & Singles" to decorate the top of your KeyDox™. A "Full Scene" stretches the entire length of the bar while a "Single" attaches over every pocket individually. This opens up the opportunity to add a "Single" over every set of keys in any combination you like. Generally these are 1/4" thick metal (aluminum or brass) bonded with a 1/4" thick clear plastic making them 1/2" in total thickness. The only time this changes is if you select the Clear/White Etching option which is only 1/4" in total thickness. Later in this article you will see what's currently available & what we're planning on creating next.
The KeyDox™ will be offered in three sizes:
The "z1" will hold 1 set of keys. Dimensions: (5/8" x 1" x 2")
The "x3 & z3" will hold 3 sets of keys. Dimensions: (5/8" x 1" x 5-3/4")
The "x6 & z6" will hold 6 sets of keys. Dimensions: (5/8" x 1" x 10-1/2")
My name is Maciej Gierek and I'm 35 years old. I go by Matt, it's just easier & I don't have to explain to everyone how my first name is pronounced. My pronunciation of Maciej is (motch-ā). My parents brought us over to the States from Poland in the early 80's. In under a decade we became American citizens, which was one of the proudest events in our lives. My father was a talented machinist so finding work didn't seem like an issue for him. We moved a lot when I was young but ended up in the Detroit area, home of the automobile. Over 20 years ago my father started his own machine shop & after some, time was directly supplying major companies in the auto industry. I remember the first time he brought me in to help out. My exact words were "you can't cut metal that's impossible, it's hard as a rock." I didn't know it then but that was the beginning of my career. We added CNC's in 2001 which combined my passion for computer programming & machining into the perfect combination.
Maciej (Matt) Gierek: KeyDox™ Creator / Designer
Kimmie Gierek: KeyDox™ Add-Ons Creator / Designer
I come up with ideas here & there that improve our home. KeyDox™ is the first one I'm making public & am hoping people like it as much as my wife Kimmie and I do. Over a year ago I created a prototype that we've been using in our home. It compliments the decor while adding functionality. Kim came up with the idea of adding scenes & singles to the top for broader appeal, and our friend Dan came up with the KeyDox™ name. We hope you like it as much as we do, and invite KeyDox™ into your daily routine.
The main goal is to be able to make these for you & the public. I'm not interested in having another company produce these as I want to keep them made in the USA and giving the work away would inflate the price. I will use the shop I work for to produce these parts, and hopefully one day open a shop of my own.
I have 20+ years of experience in the machining industry which allows me to be confident we have produced a product of the highest quality. I am currently a shop foreman with a vast set of skills & abilities and hold the following positions:
-Manual Milling & Turning
-CNC Mill & Lathe Programming, Set-up & Operating
-Production Set-up / Supervisor
The funding (which is only set at $3,000) will go towards repairing one CNC, material, finishing our website & shipping rewards. If we receive more it will go towards equipment.
The magnets are located in the KeyBar itself so the pin on your keys won't effect scanning attachments or devices. There is a little magnetic transfer to the pin but it will dissipate in minutes & it is not strong enough to cause damage.
The following prices do not include shipping, thus making the Kickstarter rewards a great value.

Risks and challenges
This project is different from our last. This time around we are focusing on launching this product without relying on new equipment. Getting the main CNC repaired & purchasing material for the rewards is our goal. We feel that getting KeyDox™ into the market will be the best advertising. The logos & add-ons will have to be milled using a CNC instead of laser engraving & plasma cutting. No matter the method, you will receive a great high quality product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
