Hi Kickstarters!

As crazy as it sounds, this is actually the world's 1st, solid titanium alloy double-sided screwdriver bit that both fits and functions on a titanium keyring. We like to think of them as tiny titanium pocket ninjas.

A versatile & compact titanium alloy tool

Don't let it's simplicity or minimal design fool you, this is a very useful and strong titanium alloy tool for quick, everyday daily tasks.  It's also weighs around 1/4 the weight of a standard house key.

How useful is it?

Very. This simple looking EDC (every day carry) tool is extremely versatile for most common tasks that we all encounter on a daily basis. Plus it's always with you without getting in the way. Since it's made from Solid titanium alloy (Grade 5, Ti-6Al-4V) and heat-treated for extra hardness, it's very strong and also very lightweight.

Great for fastening/loosening:
Common screw heads
Tripod mounts
Door hinges
Basically just about any standard + or – screw that needs some help.

Other great uses:
Opening packages/boxes
Mini pry bar
Bottle opener (twist & pry to open bottle caps)

Simply add the ring and bit to your current setup to store it vertically.

A Heat-Treated Solid Titanium Alloy Bit, Really?

Yep, It's no secret that we love titanium and these useful screwdriver bits are made from high-strength, heat-treated, aerospace grade, solid titanium alloy (Grade 5, Ti-6Al-4V). They are also super compact so you never know it's there until you need it.

So compact you won't notice it until you need it.

Not too big, not too small.

These patent-pending bits are strategically designed to be the same width as a standard US door key. So, no worries about it poking you in the leg.

It's super discrete and yet very useful. The torque and grip of the keyring provides a solid gripping area for adjusting loose screws without having to go find a full sized screwdriver.

Using the bit feel as natural as holding your keys.

Using the bit feels like turning a key

You hold the bit in your fingers just like you would a regular key and the titanium key ring running through the center of the bit provided the stability and grip to tighten or loosen a screw. Using it feels as natural as turning a key but you get a lot more turning power from gripping the wide keyring.

Risks and challenges

This project is the most simplified project from a production standpoint out of the 16 projects that we have launched since 2011. We have everything lined up and ready to start once the funding is in place so the risk is extremely low if any. If the project is extremely over-funded that could delay the over shipping of the rewards but we have already factored in some extra lead time into our current delivery estimates and feel very confident that these bits will be delivered on time to everyone who backs the project.
