New and much more secure Clasp design!

Hey Lovely Backers!

How's it going? 

1. We have received the fund from Kickstarter and we are working on the KEYMAGTIC already.

2. We have been working with our manufacture regarding our KEYMAGTIC clasp issue. We have received some feedback that the magnet is not strong enough and keys might drop. Thea and I and some of our friend have tested and actually we didn't have this issue. We guess it could be the style of how you are using. But since our backers have this issue, so it is now a big deal to us too. So, what we are going to do now? There are 2 approach to fix this issue. 1) We will substitute a new clasp that is more secure. 2) We will redesign the clasp, however that might take up to 6+ months for a new born design plus prototyping. So 6+ months might not be a realistic schedule.

Solution, after deep and seriously discussion and consideration. Thea and I have decided to substitute with a new clasp to make everything secure without any hassle.

This clasp works about the same as the magnetic clasp but instead it uses a button to lock the other end of the wire. It cost a lot more then our original magnetic clasp, however it is more secure and we want no more keys drop, so that is ok to us. The shape looks about the same but a bit bulky than before, but we didn't see any big problem with it.

      I'm late to the discussion but I prefer a stronger magnetic clasp over the mechanical one.

      This is not what I backed. I expect a stronger magnet, but same design as v1. If you go with new button design, I will ask for a refund.

      So I like it, I do not want to lose a key.
      But maybe they offer both, then you can choose.

      Dear all,

      Thanks so much for reaching out!

      We respect your opinions and we will consider the keymagtic design again. And also pls give us more feedback about the keymagtic. Thank you!

      The initial design was cool, minimalistic (no moving parts!) and looked stunning. The new design is neither minimalistic nor it’s cool anymore. There are moving parts now and the way of opening/closing is the same as every other product uses. So yes, I don‘t like the redesign too. Now Keymagtic lost it‘s coolnes, actually the name is no longer correct! The design is bulky and ugly compared to the small magnetic tube. I never thought I would be able to carry my groceries with the original magnetic tube and it should have be clear to everybody that there is a powerlimit somewhere, which opens the keymagtic once reached. If there is no other option to increase that powerlimit (for example implementing another magnet, more magnet, whatever...), will it be a option to get the original design shipped too? Maybe the once who like to have a colored keyring can get the new tube and the others (like me), who liked the magnetic version can still get that one?

      Looks bulky and doesn't need to be magnetic.
      It's a simple locking keychain now. The product has completely changed.
      What happened? Why not just put a stronger magnet? Make the whole tube magnetic instead of just the tips.

      Not happy with your redesign you should have thought this out before reacting to comments from testers
