Keyport’s Universal Access Device Shines a Light on the Shortcomings of a Bulky Keychain

HENDERSON, NV- April 4, 2011— Only a month removed from introducing its USB flash drive insert, Keyport, Inc. announces that its mini-LED insert, designed to fit securely in the Keyport Slide V.01, is ready to ship. Lightweight and compact, the Keyport Slide consolidates keys and other personal items (thumb drive, bottle opener, LED) typically crammed onto a keychain and streamlines them into a single universal access device. About the same size as a traditional key fob that holds only one key, the Keyport provides access to each of the six ports with just the slide of a thumb.

Keyport’s new water-resistant Mini-LED features two lithium ion batteries that last up to 15 hours. “Adding a light to the Keyport’s growing set of features not only illuminates darkened hallways and difficult to find keyways, but it also shines the light on the inadequacies of a bulky keychain.  In this case, bigger is definitely not better,” says President David Cooper.

Keyport also announces the introduction of four additional Slide colors – Gunmetal, Zircon Gold, Copper, and Champagne.  Keyport’s Founder and Chief Product Designer, Josh Downes summarized, “Our new colors and inserts, like the mini-LED, continue to expand the range of options a customer has to personalize his or her own Keyport, and this is only the beginning.  There is much more on the horizon.”
