Full disclosure I received this Keyport for free to do a review and post user feedback. This product is made by Keyport, a Supporting Manufacturer of this forum. As many of you know, I have something of an obsession with a cleaner, less-bulky keychain. I have watched the Keyport project with interest from the beginning. Originally, it was a bulkier metal device that remained a conceptual product for a long time. In fact, I had almost given up hope when the company finally got off the ground. The first round of Keyport Slides were a work of art, but Keyport wanted to broaden the products that they could offer. I feel that they have achieved that with their new Keyport Slide 2.0, now available on their website. ORDERING From Keyport's on-line store (mykeyport.com), I selected from the following options: Keyport Slide bodies - black, white, or clear six "blades" - I chose all keys, but there are also USB sticks, a bottle opener, and an LED interchangable nameplates for the sides, which can be customized accessories - clips, lanyards, etc., for attaching to the swivel on the Keyport I had no problem ordering (aside from deciding on colors) and found the process pretty straight-forward. Once you order, the next step is to photograph your keys so that Keyport can send you the correct blanks. There is much debate here (and elsewhere on the web) as to whether it is safe to photograph keys. It's really a moot point, though. Keyport doesn't need to be able to see the teeth on your key. They only need to be able to see enough of the key to identify the key pattern to know which blank to send you. You can easily put tape over the teeth of the keys before photographing them (that's what I did). The next day, I got an email that identified the key blanks and requesting that I send in a copy of one of my keys (an unusual security key, I guess) so that they could cut the key down and fit a Keyport head on it. I was a little slow on getting this done and I got a couple email reminders from Keyport. I appreciate the fact that they didn't want to drop the ball on their end. I got the key sent in and got my Keyport not long afterwards. UNBOXING & ASSEMBLY The Keyport comes in a nice, attractive presentation box. The key blanks are sent separately, zip-tied together and in a baggy. The custom side plates are also in a separate bag. I took the key blanks to a local locksmith who cut them for $1 each. I would strongly advise going to a locksmith, not a big box store or even a hardware store. I didn't want a blank getting mis-cut and having to wait for a replacement. Needless to say, a new key-carrying device generated quite a bit of excitement at a locksmith store and I would not be surprised if several of the employees do not soon have Keyports of their own. The Keyport box includes instructions, but it is pretty intuitive to put together. I assembled it and added a TEC P-7 clip to the swivel. DAY-TO-DAY USE At first, the Keyport felt very strange. I initially wanted to slide the button out and hold my thumb against it while operating the blade. However, the blades lock open and are unlocked by depressing the button, so I had to learn to let go of the button and allow the blade to lock in place. It also feels very different opening a lock because the width of the keyport approximately quadruples your leverage as opposed to a typical key bow - meaning you don't feel like you're twisting hard enough. My first impression of the Keyport when I opened it was that it was bigger than I was envisioning. However, it did seem to work out to be lighter than having the same keys on a ring and the smooth, rigid shape carries better in a pocket than keys do. DURABILITY So far, I have seen no signs of any durability issues. Some people have questioned the integrity of the swivel, but I don't see it ever taking that much stress. Besides, it looks like a modified fishing swivel and those can take a lot of weight. I did have one issue with a security key that I sent in to be machined for the Keyport. This key was thicker than average key and the metal may have been machined just a bit too much or the plastic cap that was fit on may have been defective. At any rate, the blade wobbled side-to-side when extended. It still worked, but I didn't feel confident about it. I sent it back to Keyport along with a new key, and they promptly sent me a newly cut blade and the previous blade, which had been repaired. CONCLUSION I had tried a lot of keychain configurations and had settled on one that I had been using for some time. I really wasn't sure if the Keyport was going to supplant that setup, but it definitely has done so. I love the Keyport and would recommend it for those looking to slim up their keychain. I could see this also being beneficial for those who suffer from arthritis, as it provides a mechanical advantage and better grip over normal keys.
