About this project
iKeyFinder is a major success!! Never lose your keys again..
Due to the amazing response and contribution from friends, family and people like you that yourself whom can never seem to find their lost or misplaced keys, we have to respectfully withdraw this project from KickStarter. iKeyFinder is more than just a concept, it's a real product and you can purchase it now on www.ikeyfinder.com.
iKeyFinder is a FULLY DEVELOPED product that will ship to you the same day this KickStarter ends.
By the time you are finished learning about my product there will probably be another KickStarter project launch claiming to find your lost items, or do the same thing my product does. Please, stop wasting your money on "concepts" or "visions", and choose to back iKeyFinder, a REAL and WORKING product. I've spent two years perfecting this technology, but please don't just take my word for it, buy iKeyFinder and find out for yourself. I promise you will never have to worry about misplacing your keys ever again.
Hello, My name is Jarod Cooper and my invention is iKeyFinder, a click-and-find key finder that uses your mobile phone to locate lost or misplaced keys. iKeyFinder is not a concept or idea like other key finder concepts on KickStarter, iKeyFinder is real, it's tested and I have stock that's READY TO SHIP TODAY. I promise there is nothing else on the market like it! This invention is my life and I need YOUR HELP to help take it to the next level. I have both a PATENT PENDING (Serial No. 61/866,592) on the technology and the name "iKeyFinder" trademark registered (Serial No. 86048754).
The iKeyFinder currently functions perfectly on ALL Android phones and comes with a built in key-retrieval service / lost & found feature. The registration for this service is quick and simple to signup.The lost & found service gives users the ability to retrieve their lost keys should someone else happen to find them.
How does the Lost & found service work?
Clearly printed on the back of the iKeyFinder are the words "Found lost keys? Call (855) 453-9346(855) 453-9346(855) 453-9346(855) 453-9346", along with a special code that users can register via iKeyFinder app. (see actual closeup image below)
So basically if someone else finds your keys and calls the number on the back, we will actually send a pre-paid envelope to pick up the keys so that we can return them to the owner! I guarantee there is absolutely no other product or service on the planet like this and I have the patent to prove it.
The iKeyFinder is fully functional on all Android phones, both old and new. My product works right now! I've spent two years working with my manufacturer to make sure every minor detail and function worked to perfection before bringing it to market. I didn't just launch this project with an idea and a vision, I actually completely finished production of iKeyFinder and purchased stock before launching on KickStarter.
Why do I need KickStarter?
Now that I'm finished with the Android version of iKeyFinder, I need KickStarter support to help me manufacture the iOS version.
When KickStarter is successfully funded, I will have iKeyFinder for Android delivered to your doorstep within 30 days, GARUNTEED! The expected time for delivery for the iPhone is 3-6 months.
What is the iKeyFinder ?
The iKeyFinder is a innovative new key-chain that produces a loud beeping sound when alerted from your mobile device. With the simple push of a button, you're key-chain will produce a loud beeping sound allowing you to easily locate it from approximately 50 yards away.
The iKeyFinder has a battery life of up to 30 days and can be fully charged in less than 20 minutes. This unique charging feature is only available with the iKeyFinder.
When the device charge is running low, the flashing blue light will alternate to a flashing red light. It charges in less than 30 minutes seamlessly with any USB powered charger. (laptops/phone chargers/etc).
Why use the iKeyFinder ?
Everyone knows that losing your keys can be such a hassle! You are frequently being late to work, school or other important events because of it. This solution will help eliminate this problem. There will be no more excuses for losing your keys!
What the iKeyFinder is NOT
The iKeyFinder is unlike any other device on the market. While other products require bulky power outlets to keep charged, the iKeyFinder comes equipped with a built-in USB charger. The USB charger slides out and can easily plug into powered USB outlets for quick charging. Also, other products require a constant Bluetooth connection that will quick drain the battery from your phone. The iKeyFinder only connects to your phone when you need it!
Why do I need Kickstarter's help ?
I am coming to KickStarter because now that I am completely finished with the Android version of my product, I need financial assistance to complete the iPhone/iPad version. I have put over $50,000 of my own money into the development of the iKeyFinder and it's Android based APP. Now, if I cannot raise enough money to develop the iPhone version of iKeyFinder and finish the website development, I'm going to have to seek out angel investors.
This is why I desperately need your help for the following things:
- Manufacture and stock iKeyFinder for iPhone:$10,000
- Hire iOS developer for iPhone/iPad App: $2,500
- Complete E-Commerce based website: $2,500
- Shoot promotional video: $5,000
With your help, we can make sure the iKeyFinder is a success in the long term! Together we can help eliminate the hassle of losing your keys!
Thank you for your time and donations!

Risks and challenges
I've been working on the iKeyFinder for over 2 years in order to create the perfect key finder. As with any invention, it didn't come easy. I've had to overcome literally hundreds of obstacles along the way. The main challenge I currently face is developing the iOS app for iPhone users. With the help from you and the Kick Starter platform, I will have the money to hire an an iOS App developer. My goal is to make the iKeyFinder available for all smart phone users, not just Android.
Overall, I am personally responsible for the success of this company and every dollar it receives. I have dedicated over a year of my life to my product, and with your help, I hope to dedicate many more.
If you have questions please don't hesitate to send me a direct message.
Thanks again for your time an donation!
Jarod CooperLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
The lost & found service will allow you to get your keys back should you ultimately lose them and have someone else find them. The iKeyFinder registration is quick and simple, and it gives owners the ability to retrieve their lost keys should someone else happen to find them. Clearly printed on the back of the iKeyFinder are the words "Found lost keys? Call (855) 453-9346".
So basically if someone else finds your keys and calls the number on the back, we will actually send a pre-paid envelope to pick up the keys so that we can return them to the owner! I guarantee there is absolutely no other product or service on the planet like this. Registration costs $10 for lifetime unless you purchase one of the rewards that includes this service.
The iKeyFinder Application is completely free to download from the Google Play Store. I will start the iOS APP development as soon as the funding of this project is successful. The iPhone version of this key finder will also be completely free to download.
Perfecting the iKeyFinder has been my life goal for the past 2 years. I have taken all of the steps to ensure the overall success of this product. I currently have a patent pending on both the design and the functionality of iKeyFinder. I also have a registered trademark for the term "iKeyFinder".
