    Heading this off before someone messages me and asks.

    The UFO does not really fly unless you throw it. It does not use fuel nor does it ride on some electromagnetic wave.

    It does not contain any area 51 technology.

    I thought it might fly if I connected a tritium fob for fuel. Thanks for clearing that up!

    There are maybe 4-6 more that are not packaged yet.

    The vast majority are out and on the way.

    Got my U. F. O. today :-D. Reconfigured my keys and tools and added the P-7. LOVE THIS THING.
    I'll tell ya, the UFO and the P-7 really make a difference in comfort. The UFO layers the keys and tools perfectly. Great product guys. Very pleased to say the least.

    I've been fiddling around with the UFO to see if it helps organizing my keychain or should be used on a keychain at all. I'm a "tool chain" person on my keychain so I have quite a bit and so far I've been using a chunky Keyback quick release for car key and a series of orings and clips like nite ize and pythons. I also use a P7 or other pocket clip or dangler.

    When I have a pic of the new incarnation I will post but here's the UFO as I was using it recently for a light, a capsule and some Uncle Bills tweezers.
    The esoteric "issue" is where to put the clips on the UFO or on the thing hung on it, or not use clips at all for some things to reduce clutter. I also might chain the UFO to something else like a quick release and a dangler plus a minimal tool set. I like those mini oval split rings in the kit that TEC sells in the forum store.

    Ironside, I appreciate the feedback. The nice thing about the UFO is its versatility! I struggled with the same issues, and realized that if it needs to come off, it gets a Python clip. If it can remain on the UFO, it doesn't. Personally, I currently have an Isotope and PicoPen attached with only small split rings as they do not need to come off. I also have a SAK Classic and Veleno Designs Quantum D2 hanging from the UFO. But I have the hole in the Python clips attached to the UFO using split rings and they hold the items by the gate. Easy to remove, and it I want to change it up I simply change the item without having to move the Python clip to the new item.

    But it's all personal preference. I do like to move things around to see what works better (or worse).
