The Keyport Slide 2.0 masters the art of consolidation. Consolidation. I like that word. It conjures images of culling junk, making things tidier, increasing manageability and pleasantness. Even when I'm told that we need to consolidate the company and it's a passive corporate method of saying they're going to keep all of the revolutionizing work I've done, but fire me I can't think poorly of it. And happily, this slick key-and-tool organizer applies the word in a way that doesn't result in my livelihood being ripped out from underneath me.

The Keyport Slide 2.0, an upgrade of Keyport, Inc.'s similar V.01, reduces clutter by storing up to 6 keys and/or alternative implements into a device no bigger than a Tic Tac container. It accommodates the majority of key types, including many chipped-auto and high-security keys, as well as smaller keys that open mailboxes and padlocks. Currently available inserts include an 8GB to 32GB flash drive, mini-light, bottle opener, and barcode holder, with more to come down the line. Each Keyport also has a unique serial number that, when registered, can be used to recover lost devices. Other benefits: reduced total weight of keychain; no sharp edges to catch on clothes or unexpectedly poke things like family jewels; elimination of pocket jingle. Disadvantages: ladies, you'll no longer be able to generate the false sense of security that comes with threading your keys between your fingers as you walk back to your car alone. However, Brutus and Kuba can step in to help with that.

The Keyport Slide 2.0 is available through Kickstarter backing until March 23, 2013, with anticipated keychain delivery in May 2013. Basic funding levels include:

  • The All Blade Bundle, containing a Slide 2.0, colored buttons, and 6 Blades.
  • The Tech Bundle, with a Slide 2.0, colored buttons, 4 Blades, an 8GB USB flash drive, and mini-light.
  • The Premium Bundle, returning a Slide 2.0, custom buttons, 4 Blades, inserts (32GB USB flash drive, mini-light, bottle opener, barcode holder), and Keyport accessories (Mini-Reel, T-shirt).

Muchas danke to Robert F. for using Dude Product Tips to suggest the Keyport Slide.
