Anywhere Tools is a major addition to Keyport's modular everyday carry system by introducing a series of new tech and tool modules along with another way to carry them - the Anywhere Pocket Clip. The Pocket Clip and improved modular stacking system gives you a whole new array of carry options for Keyport Modules in addition to attaching them to the Keyport Pivot and Keyport Slide 3.0. The Keyport system is the most advanced EDC solution available because of its one-of-a-kind modularity, its broad range of customization choices, and its wide variety of carry options.
Anywhere Tools are part of a system designed upon the principals of convenience, utility, and style. Our goal is to transform your everyday carry from a bulky, oddly shaped, noisy assemblage of things you always haul around with you to a fully customized set of tools and tech that accompany you on all of your adventures without getting in the way.
Modular - Take only the items you want with you. No need to schlep a bulky, jingly jangly, pocket full of keys and other oddly shaped personal items alongside a fixed tool with several implements you will rarely, if ever, use.
Stackable - Several of the modules are stackable (we call them mid-modules) meaning you can carry more than one together on a single pocket clip. Both the MOCA II and the NEBA Knife Modules are mid-modules which allows other modules to be stacked on top of them. Mid-modules are easily identified by their machined aluminum scales with the three square holes. The Pocket Flare Mini-Flashlight and WeeLINK Cable Charger are outer modules, which means that they can stack on top of a mid-module but cannot be stacked upon as they form the top or outer most layer.
Quick and Easy On / Off - Modules are easily added or removed from the Pocket Clip, Pivot or Slide with our RuSH Module Removal Tool or a heavy-duty paperclip, pen, or other device with a simple point.
Wide Range of Uses - There are so many ways to carry Anywhere Tools... on a pocket clip, on multiple pocket clips, dangling from a carabiner, on a keychain, on a backpack, on a purse, with a Keyport Pivot, or with a Keyport Slide 3.0.
Stylish - Anywhere Tools provide a cleaner, more personalized, minimalist approach to your everyday carry.
Keyport Compatible - All of the modules in this campaign are compatible with both the Keyport Slide 3.0 (sold separately) and the Keyport Pivot (available as an add-on for 25% OFF). Equal parts modular key organizer + custom multi-tool + exclusive lost & found recovery service all-in-one, Keyport devices complete the ultimate fully customizable everyday carry system.
Think of it as a sophisticated alternative to Batman's utility belt... minus the extra 10 pounds, the shiny yellow belt, and the need to wear tights to pull off that whole look.
Integrated Your Valuable Feedback
Like our previous Kickstarter campaigns, we have integrated a great deal of your feedback from our initial set of tools along with feedback on other products in the marketplace to make our latest products stronger, more versatile, and more useful.
Anywhere Pocket Clip™
Constructed of one piece hardened spring steel, the Anywhere Pocket Clip uses the same cutting-edge modular attachment feature as the Keyport Pivot and Slide 3.0. The unique no-fastener design allows you to attach and detach modules in a literal snap. It can also be used as a money clip. All modules that fit the Pivot and Slide 3.0 are compatible with the Pocket Clip.
MOCA™ II Module
Designed especially with Slide owners in mind, the MOCA II (11-In-1) is an update on our MOCA 10-In-1 Multi-Tool. We have updated the design to feature a unique stowage latch, a 180 degree stop, and refined the tip to include both a Phillips and a flathead screwdriver, along with an improved cord cutter that slices through boxes, cords, and nearly anything else with ease. The MOCA II is a mid-module, so you can stack other modules or Side Plates on top of the scale for extra comfort and personalization.
Tools included: Bottle Opener • Flathead Screwdriver • Phillips Head Screwdriver • Cord Cutter • Box Opener • Scoring Tool • Hex Bit Driver • 1/4 inch Wrench • 5/16 inch Wrench • 3/8 inch Wrench • 1 inch Ruler + 1 cm Ruler
NEBA Knife™ Module
Named in honor of our fallen team member, Nebiyu Detti, this high quality edc pocketknife carries on his name and spirit. Whenever anyone needed a little help, Neb was always there with his signature slogan, "I got you." The NEBA Knife continues in this tradition with a stylish, beefier pocketknife that will serve you well in a pinch. The slip-joint knife features a 2" clip point blade and an improved spring mechanism with a half stop and thumb jibbing for extra grip. With the Pocket Clip attached it is very comfortable to hold with no unpleasant hot spots. The NEBA Knife is also a mid-module, so you can stack other modules or Side Plates on top of it.
Pocket Flare™ Module
An upgrade from our base mini-flashlight unit, the Pocket Flare is over two times brighter (27 lumens vs. 12 lumens max output) and features lamp mode, a lantern-style light around the entire base of the module to cast a wider light than that of the front beam. We also replaced the slider button with a push button. The Pocket Flare is rechargeable via USB micro, displaying red during charge mode and green when fully charged.
WeeLINK™ Charger Cable Module
Everyone these days appears to be carrying multiple charger cables stuffed in their backpack, purse, or even pocket. Yet, as the old saying goes, it feels like there is never one around when you need it most. Enter the WeeLink Charger Cable Module. Available in USB to Micro USB, USB to Lightning, and USB to USB-C, WeeLINK charger cables are easily accessible to keep all of your most important devices powered up.
Alongside the Anywhere Pocket Clip, we designed two products that work in concert to complement the system.
The ParaPull is a short paracord zipper pull style lanyard that makes it easy to pull your Pocket Clip out when you need to get a handle on it. The ParaPull works equally well connecting loose items to either a Pivot or a Slide.
RuSH Multi-Purpose Tool
Remove / Screw / Hang - The RuSH Multi-Purpose Tool makes removing modules, particularly stacked modules, a piece of cake. The RuSH Tool doubles as a suspension clip and features a bottle opener and flathead screwdriver to tighten / loosen the Pivot screw. In addition, the RuSH Tool can be stowed in a Pivot without having to disassemble it.
While we are launching a large number of products, we want to give you as much choice as we can without complicating things and compromising fulfillment schedules. Based upon your feedback from our last Kickstarter, we have added discounts to ALL reward levels, so even late-comers to the party get a break for their support. Obviously, the sooner you pledge, the bigger the discount, and the sooner we hit our goal, the sooner we can let our manufacturing partners know to get started and the more stretch goals we can unlock!
SPECIAL NOTE - It came to our attention that we are missing 2 Pocket Flare Mini-Flashlight Modules in the EDC Essentials 2X Reward Description. Our mistake. That reward does come with 2 Pocket Flares, and we will make certain that anyone who pledges that Reward will receive them.
To keep it simple there is one major rule that accompanies the above rewards and add-on menu.
Rule #1 and Only (as of right now...)
Pricing for Add-Ons to ANY and ALL reward levels comes from the Add-On Menu. To say it another way, early bird pricing DOES NOT apply to add-ons. To calculate your Add-On pricing, simply add the total dollar amount of the add-ons you would like from the Add-On Menu and add it to your existing reward level. This is how we will reconcile all pricing in BackerKit.
For example, if I choose the Starter Kit Reward Level and want to add a Charger Cable Module (regardless of when I do so in the campaign), I will add the Charger Cable Module price found in the Add-On Menu @ $16, which represents a 11% discount off of the projected MSRP of $17.99, to the existing reward pledge of $18 for a total of $34 before shipping.
Stretch Goal #1 @ $65,000 - Spectrum and Black Pocket Clips - UNLOCKED
Alongside Gun Grey, we have added two color options to the Anywhere Pocket Clip - Black and Spectrum.
- Digital Camo
- Woodland Camo
- Carbon Fiber
- Black on Black
- Black on White
See Side Plate image under Stretch Goal #3.5.
These side plates are not available anywhere else, and you will be the first to receive them.
As we have done for both campaigns before, we are going to use BackerKit to administrate the fulfillment process after the campaign. Once we migrate to BackerKit, we will send you out a survey that will help us to review and break down your pledge into the specific rewards you ordered along with their associated costs.
BackerKit will also allow the opportunity for additional purchases, but please keep in mind that Kickstarter will offer the best reduced price options.
SPECIAL NOTE - Super Early Bird rewards list an estimated delivery of September, which is incorrect and could not be changed once it was noticed since those rewards were live. We expect Super Early Bird rewards to ship at the same time as all other rewards and estimate delivery to be in October.
- April 18 - Launch Kickstarter
- April & May - Integrate consumer feedback, finalize design for manufacturing, finalize quotes (4 weeks)
- May 18 - Complete Kickstarter campaign
- May 20 thru 31 - Place tooling and production p.o.’s
- June & July - Complete production tooling, first shots (8 weeks)
- August - Initiate pilot runs of each product, initial beta testing, assuming production tweaks are minor, move ahead with production runs (4 weeks)
- September - Production runs (6 weeks)
- October - Final QC, package, and ship to backers (2 weeks)
- October 31 - Complete fulfillment to all backers
Because of the large number of independent items in production at the same time (6), we will fulfill each order as soon as all of those products for that particular order have been received, tested, and packaged.
Unless we encounter an unforeseen issue which delays one or more products more than four weeks from the estimated end of the campaign, we will not be splitting shipments.

Risks and challenges
While it is true that product development is fraught with challenges for even the most seasoned team, we have done a great deal to mitigate the risks while adhering to an aggressive, but achievable schedule that gets rewards out as quickly as possible.
Keyport has been around for more than ten years and developed a reputation for high quality products coupled with exceptional customer support. Our core management team (Josh, David, and Aimee) have worked together for over five years now, and we have been through the twists and turns, the ups and downs of bringing complex projects to fruition many times.
This isn’t our first rodeo. Keyport has already completed two successful Kickstarter campaigns, both of which had multiple products and very aggressive project timelines. In our last Kickstarter campaign alone, we launched a half dozen new products at once.
We have worked together with our primary manufacturer, who is overseeing the production of all of these products, for nearly two years now. Together we have developed over a dozen products with tens of thousands of units in the field.
In an effort to speed up the time to delivery, we anticipate initiating tooling early in the campaign instead of waiting until our project has been funded and the funds have been received.
Most importantly, we know the unparalleled value of consistent and transparent communication with you… our most ardent supporters. We have enough experience to know that there are ups and downs with every project, and we will keep you posted on our progress so that you are with us every step of the way on this adventure... and ask anyone who backed our last project, our updates always entertain as well as inform :)
