FORTIUS ARMS INC KEYBINER Carabiner Key Organiser Mod
The KeyBiner by Fortius Arms Inc began as a KickStarter project and quickly gained both funding and an enthusiastic following. I decided to purchase one a week ago and received it yesterday. Whilst I was impressed with the quality and execution, I soon discovered that the design missed one thing: the ability to house my car key.. Modern car keys tend to have an electronic housing containing the alarm buttons etc.. making them too large and bulky to be accommodated inside the KeyBiner itself. Now, I really didn’t want to have one key organiser and another standard key chain for the car key; that really seemed to defeat the minimalist purpose of the KeyBiner, so I set about scratching my head and activating my remaining brain cells. Eventually, after some toil, I came up with this:
Using a small bolt, some nuts and washers (3 tiny nuts and washers as spacers and a further nut to lock it all together) I managed to attach the car ket to one of the pre-cut holes close to the pry tool at the bottom of the KeyBiner. This system allows the key to be swung in and out, just like the other keys and means I now have ALL my keys together on the same organiser.
Having tightened the locking nut to the exact pressure I wanted, I then applied a couple of small drops of super glue to prevent the nut from slipping when the key was in use. I’m now very satisfied with the KeyBiner and I no longer have a bunch of keys jangling from my belt as I walk down the hight street!
