Slide 4.0 LE1 Removable Bezel

Slide 4.0 Feature Reveal 3

SLIDE 4.0 LE1 - FEATURE REVEAL 3

In all previous production models of the Keyport Slide to date (V.01, 2.0 & 3.0), the end cap has been removable to access our proprietary Key Blades through the back end of the Slide. In its 4th iteration, the Keyport Slide will have a removable front Bezel instead. We've always referred to the front of the Slide as the Bezel, and now that part will be a single piece of injection molded stainless steel using MIM (Metal Injection Molded) technology. Injection molding is the only efficient way to get the complex geometry and strength required for this part. 

    To install Key Blades and Inserts, you just depress the silicone buttons on the sides of the Slide to release the Bezel, and pull it straight off. Position the Node cavity on the top of the Skull with the cavity in the front of the Slide and insert the Node. Press down the Node and slide it back. Then just align the Bezel and push it until you hear the spring loaded retainer clips click into place. It's very similar to loading Key Blades in the Slide 3.0 except it's on the opposite end of the Slide. Here's a demo showing a Blade removal:

    If you have Modules or Faceplates on your Slide, they will need to be removed first. But they are very easy to remove with the Slide 4.0's new Module Release Lever we introduced in our last update #4.

    We received the first machined prototype of the Slide 4.0 LE1 this week, and it looks and feels great! We're looking forward to sharing an actual demo in the next update.

    Remember, when it's time to launch pre-orders, we will announce it in this order.
