DEFCON 26 - Another Awesome Time... Just Don't Connect to the Wi-Fi
Earlier this month, we manned a booth at our favorite conference / tradeshow - the DEF CON Hacking Conference in Las Vegas. DEF CON, DEFCON, Defcon, or DC as it can be referred to is attended by computer security professionals, security researchers, government officials, law enforcement agencies, and most of all, hackers from all over the world who have an interest in hacking just about anything that can be hacked... from registration badges to smart locks to self-driving cars to Wi-Fi networks (we highly recommend that you don't connect to the public Wi-Fi anywhere near DEFCON - READ THIS) to electronic voting booths. These people know their way around a keyboard.
SPECIAL NOTE: We still have a limited supply of the following DEFCON edition products remaining:
DEFCON Pivots @ $24.99

Keyport is proud to announce an upcoming Kickstarter for a major addition to our modular everyday carry system called Anywhere Tools™.
Anywhere Tools introduces a series of new tech and tool modules along with another way to carry them - the Anywhere Pocket Clip. The Pocket Clip and improved modular stacking system gives you a whole new array of carry options for Keyport Modules in addition to attaching them to the Keyport Pivot and Keyport Slide 3.0. The Keyport system is the most advanced EDC solution available because of its one-of-a-kind modularity, its broad range of customization choices, and its wide variety of carry options.
Anywhere Tools stacking, no-fastener system is incredibly easy to assemble and customize. Modules are either mid-modules (meaning you can stack on top of them) or outer modules (meaning that they have to be on top). Mid-modules are easily identified by their machined aluminum scales with the three square holes. Both the MOCA II and NEBA Knife are mid-modules while the Pocket Flare Mini-Flashlight and WeeLink Cable Charger are outer modules. In place of an outer module, you can add a wide range of slide plates including a barcode or one with custom text.
Anywhere Pocket Clip™
Constructed of one piece hardened spring steel, the Anywhere Pocket Clip uses the same cutting-edge modular attachment feature as the Keyport Pivot and Slide 3.0. The unique no-fastener design allows you to attach and detach modules in a literal snap. It can also be used as a money clip. All modules that fit the Pivot and Slide 3.0 are compatible with the Pocket Clip.
MOCA™ II Module
Designed especially with Slide owners in mind, the MOCA II is an update on our MOCA 10-In-1 Multi-Tool. We have updated the design to feature a unique stowage latch, a 180 degree stop, and refined the tip to include both a Phillips and a flathead screwdriver, along with an improved cord cutter that slices through boxes, cords, and nearly anything else with ease. The MOCA II is a mid-module, so you can stack other modules or Side Plates on top of the scale for extra comfort and personalization.
Tools included: Bottle Opener • Flathead Screwdriver • Phillips Head Screwdriver • Cord Cutter • Box Opener • Scoring Tool • Hex Bit Driver • 1/4 inch Wrench • 5/16 inch Wrench • 3/8 inch Wrench • 1 inch Ruler + 1 cm Ruler
NEBA Knife™ Module
Named in honor of our fallen team member, Nebiyu Detti, this high quality EDC pocketknife carries on his name and spirit. Whenever anyone needed a little help, Neb was always there with his signature slogan, "I got you." The NEBA Knife continues in this tradition with a stylish, beefier pocketknife that will serve you well in a pinch. The slip-joint knife features a 2" clip point blade and an improved spring mechanism with a half stop and thumb jibbing for extra grip. With the Pocket Clip attached it is very comfortable to hold with no unpleasant hot spots. The NEBA Knife is also a mid-module, so you can stack other modules or a Side Plate on top of it.
Pocket Flare™ Module
An upgrade from our base mini-flashlight unit, the Pocket Flare is over two times brighter (27 lumens vs. 12 lumens max output) and features lamp mode, a lantern-style light around the entire base of the module to cast a wider light than that of the front beam. We also replaced the slider button with a push button. The Pocket Flare is rechargeable via USB micro, displaying red during charge mode and green when fully charged.
WeeLink™ Charger Cable Module
Everyone these days appears to be carrying multiple charger cables stuffed in their backpack, purse, or even pocket. Yet, as the old saying goes, it feels like there is never one around when you need it most. Enter the WeeLink Charger Cable Module. Available in USB to Micro USB and USB to Lightning Cable, WeeLink charger cables are easily accessible to keep all of your most important devices powered up.
ParaPull™ Paracord Link Pull
Alongside the Anywhere Pocket Clip, we designed two products that work in concert to complement the system.
The ParaPull is a short paracord zipper pull style lanyard that makes it easy to pull your Pocket Clip out when you need to get a handle on it. The ParaPull works equally well connecting loose items to either a Pivot or a Slide.
RuSH™ Module Removal Tool
Remove / Screw / Hang - The RuSH Module Removal Tool makes removing modules, particularly stacked modules, a piece of cake. The RuSH Tool doubles as a suspension clip and features a bottle opener and flathead screwdriver to tighten / loosen the Pivot screw. In addition, the RuSH Tool can be stowed in a Pivot without having to disassemble it.

We've teamed up with our partner, TrackR, to give away three awesome prize packages featuring the Keyport Locator Module (works with TrackR) and the Pixel, TrackR's smallest, lightest and brightest Bluetooth® tracker. From keys to backpacks to bicycles... the winners will be well equipped to keep tabs on their most essential personal items.

It happens all the time… you misplace one of your most essential everyday carry items (Keyport, spare keys, phone, wallet, purse, etc.) at the worst possible moment, and you spend 15 aneurism inducing moments running around like a lunatic expletives flying as you try to figure out where you last left it.
Bluetooth locators, tiny devices which can be attached to your person items and link to your smartphone via Bluetooth or Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth 4.0), were created specifically to help solve the mystery of your misplaced items or even prevent them from getting lost in the first place.
Over the past couple of years, Bluetooth locators have become increasingly popular. In fact, Keyport was the first key organizer / multi-tool to integrate a Bluetooth tracker. Our Slide 3.0 and Pivot compatible locator module is a BLE locator and mini-light that works with TrackR, one of the original pioneers and now leaders in what has become a very crowded space.
We've teamed up with Silent Pocket on another awesome giveaway. Combine your Keyport with Silent Pocket RFID shielding gear for the ultimate combination in EDC pocket silence. There are multiple ways to get entries below.
Every year, millions of keys and other valuables attached to conventional keychains are lost, and because they have no identifying information on them (for good reason), they stand little chance of ever being recovered by their owners.
Keyport is helping to change that.
Keyport is excited to announce our official launch of the Keyport Pivot modular multi-tool on The Grommet, a leading online product launch and dicovery platform.
Neb's signature phrase, "I GOT YOU," was a testament to his friendly disposition, team spirit, outstanding work ethic, and attention to detail. He took on every task, big or small, with a smile. Nebiyu Detti started working at Keyport on Dec 9th, 2013. At the end of 2014, he was involved in a serious car accident and had to stop working. We rehired him on April 27th, 2015, which was exactly 2 years before he tragically passed away on April 27th, 2017.
The idea of EDC (Everyday Carry) means different things to different people, but there is one item that typically makes it on everyone’s list. What's your KeyDC?
If you identify yourself as an EDCer and spend any time on Instagram, you already know the drill. Common hashtags like #EverydayCarry, #edcGear, #PocketDump, and #HandDump yield thousands of EDC pics of all varieties.
While some EDCers carry themed sets of gear - all black, all titanium, all copper - and others show how much they can carry or how little they can carry, there is one item that is represented in nearly every EDC photo: keys.
Cellphone, wallet, keys. Pocketknife, flashlight, keys, wallet. Watch, wallet, keys. Almost every dump has some form of #KeyDC. Those that don't show their keys are typically not showing the ugly part of their EDC. Those that do, are typically showing their KeyDC key organizer of choice.
