    EDC Leather Key Fob Crowdfund Campaign

    Hey everyone! Most of you know that I make a lot of other leather items besides holsters. I try to make most of my leather with EDC in mind. I came up with this cool folding key fob that is a nice alternative to the techy ones that become as big as swiss army knives. This one will typically fit in your jean's coin pocket with 2-6 keys. A couple of PF members already have ones reserved that have bough wallets.

    Please take a couple of minutes to check out this EDC Fob and support the campaign if you can. If you could also be kind enough to share the campaign on any social media you have, it would be greatly appreciated! If enough people share it by using the share button on the campaign, I can probably get it featured on Indiegogo's main page, which will be a real boost.

    Thanks in advance! Jim

    Can you provide some more detail? Why does this need crowd funding? You are already a leather worker.:-)

    What are the guts? Is it more than a piece of leather with two screws?

    I love the way it looks, but my keys are few, and they are much bigger, which is why I have stayed away from the techy ones.

    Challenge is that all my vehicle keys are huge - do you have a version to use with the monster vehicle key monstrosities?

    The main reason for the crowd funding is to buy multi-cavity clicker dies and hopefully a new press(which will be helpful for all production. The brass hardware is made in special sizes and comes with serrations, allowing you to get a snug fit, without over tightening or loosening. Inside it uses a spring wave washer to keep tension on the keys as well as pressing against the leather to keep the screws tensioned. There are spacers to allow for uneven amounts of keys or large long keys on either side. I am also working on a metal clip that will take the place of one key that you can attach your car remote to as well, this will come standard. I have but my car key on one side and house keys on the other side.

    While I can easily make these in small quantities in my regular ay to day leather work, there is no way to produce them efficiently or buy the sizes of hardware needed, except for quantity. This is my first jump to expand into more production work with the leather goods, be it fobs, wallets, holsters or belts.

    That is Cordovan / Burgundy. It is a little on the dark side in the photo.
