This carabiner is an all-in-one EDC multi-tool

CROWDFUNDED NEWS – Here’s an EDC tool that features a rugged design and hidden tools that will make your friends do a double-take when they see you use this carabiner to open a box or tighten a screw.

What is it?

The GPCA (which stands for General Purpose California) is an EDC multi-tool built into an aluminum, stainless steel, or titanium carabiner.

Why do I like it?

I like the GPCA Carabiner because it keeps your basic EDC tools in a handy package that you can clip to your gearbag, or belt loop. The built-in tools include: Flat head and Philips head screwdrivers, a bottle opener that can also be used as a pry tool, box cutter, locking blade, knuckles, and a keyhole. There’s also a tiny secret storage area under the knurled ring that can hold a flint for a lighter.

Something to consider before pledging

This carabiner can not be used for climbing because it hasn’t been rated for that function.
The GPCA Carabiner is also TSA-friendly when you remove the box cutter blade which you can do with an Allen wrench.

Where can I find more info?

      1. My KeyPort has been stopped twice by TSA so far, but it always passes. Costs me 5 min of waiting around though. That only happens when I carry it in my backpack. No problem when I put it in the change bowl – they just glance at it then let it go.

  2. This might be nice if you received what you ordered. When it finally arrived all I received was a plain old bullshit carabiner key clip.
