KeyPal is a simple, clever solution to that annoying question we all have but can never answer: “Where did I leave my keys?!”
Think about it – where do you keep your keys when you’re home? Key storage is usually an afterthought, if it’s even a thought at all.
KeyPal solves this problem by converting any standard switch plate into a hanger for your keys.
Architects and home designers always put the light switch for a room near a door for good reason: it’s strategically placed to be the first thing you access when entering, and the last thing before leaving.
While this is perfect for turning on and off the lights in a room, it’s also ideal for key placement.
KeyPal is a way to organize more than just keys. ID badges, lanyards, earbuds, sunglasses – almost anything that you take with you every day can be organized with KeyPal.
Although it seems like a simple product, months of work went into the design. We tested different curves, depths, and shapes for the hook. With the help of 3D printing technology, we were able to rapidly produce and test each revision.
We also used a high-strength ABS plastic to ensure that even the heaviest of keyrings wouldn’t be a problem for the KeyPal.
Compared to any other key organizing option, KeyPal offers more benefits than anything on the market:
Once our Kickstarter campaign is successfully completed, we plan to immediately start manufacture. While the prototypes are all 3D printed using SLA printing techniques, the final product will be injection molded, which will be even stronger. We are allowing two months (if you count February as a full month) for sample approvals to make sure the manufactured product meets specifications.
After using KeyPal for months, this is something that we truly believe could help anyone. To recap, the KeyPal benefits include:
- Saves time
- Helps organize your most important things
- No holes or wall damage
- No adhesives needed
- Installs in seconds
Risks and challenges
As with any project, there is some risk involved, but the good news is that we’ve done everything we can to minimize it. We’ve worked extensively with our designers to create a product that’s easy to manufacture. The manufacturer we are working with has over 30 years of successful manufacturing experience, and the high strength ABS material we’ve selected ensures a quality and durable product.
In order to protect our time and our supporters, we started the patent process before the design was even finalized! Patent attorneys aren’t cheap, which makes your support for this project crucial!
Our biggest fear is that we don’t get funded, which would mean that all the benefits of having a KeyPal would be lost to the masses. That’s why it’s extremely crucial we have your support, and we ask that you help spread the word so we can bring this project to life.
