Adding and removing keys from a normal keyring is never easy. It often requires you to have a sharp object or to sacrifice a fingernail to pry open the keyring. This leads to a bigger issue where people become unaware of the growing number of things they carry on their keyring. The Orbitkey Ring was designed to solve that.
Our design features a patented locking mechanism that can be unlocked by a simple motion of a pull and rotate – allowing for quick and secure access. After full rotation, the locking feature drops back into place automatically – limiting its movement and keeping all your keys secure. The unique construction relies on two materials– so different in characteristic – working together harmoniously to create a truly functional accessory. The rigid outer ring and flexible inner ring can be assembled together without any additional fasteners – creating a beautiful, seamless appearance.
From the outset, and as part of our mission to help people organise, we wanted to encourage our community to be conscious of what they’re carrying. With the release of Orbitkey Ring, people can carry just the essentials, at any given time. Orbitkey Ring is a significant addition to our small, but considered selection of organisation-related products. We designed it with the intention to enhance our existing product range, rather than to replace it. We found ourselves going back to our roots, Kickstarter with a great success. Our campaign was supported by 7,055 people worldwide, raising over $350,000 USD.
Every component of the Orbitkey Ring has been considered down to the very last detail. The unique construction relies on two materials– so different in characteristic – working together harmoniously to create a truly functional accessory. The rigid outer ring and flexible inner ring can be assembled together without any additional fasteners – creating a beautiful, seamless appearance. The mechanism is designed to be slim enough to suit all types of keys and accessories, yet durable. We also added a pull tab, so you can easily unlock the mechanism when you need to. In the process of creating the Orbitkey Ring, we ended up designing other accessories that could help our community organise better. We took the design cues of the Orbitkey Ring, and infused them into the design of the Orbitkey Clip and Strap. The Orbitkey Clip allows you to clip your items anywhere, securely. In comparison, The Strap works as an elegant carry strap, to hang your keys and other everyday items. Both products come with an innovative clasp design that allows you to detach and interchange keyring easily, and securely. The ecosystem works great individually, but even better together.
