bolt-locks-from-keyport

The Keyport Slide 2.0 already reduces the size of your keychain, but adding these Bolt locks will further reduce the number of keys you need to carry.  Each Bolt lock can be keyed to your car's key, so you can unlock all your Bolt locks with that single key.  You program the lock by inserting [...]

Both Julie and Jackie Cheng have reviewed the Keyport keychain alternative, and both like and still use their Keyports.  (Read Jackie's review of the original Keyport here and Julie's review of the Keyport Slide 2.0 here.)  After reading their rave reviews, I bought a Keyport, too.  (I've got three Slides that I can choose from, [...]

Tile to the rescue

Moms often end up carrying a lot of stuff for other family members, so her bag can be heavy, messy, and hard to find things in.  A Keyport Slide 2.0 keychain alternative could at least organize and lighten her keychain.  In a small plastic box about the size of a pack of TicTacs, she can [...]
