Duct tape is one of the most useful things on the planet. It can be used to secure, repair, or build in ways that no other material can match.
Unfortunately, while convenient to use, duct tape is very inconvenient to carry around due to the large rolls that it comes on. And in my experience, only the tools that you carry every day will be there when you need them most.
The desire to have the power of duct tape in a pocket friendly package was the inspiration for this project. My original version was a simple DIY keychain, but since launching Gearward, I've been quietly developing a classier, more durable device. Now that the patents are filed, I'm very excited to introduce Keychain Duct Tape.
Keychain Duct Tape is machined in the USA out of solid Brass or Stainless Steel, and comes with a matching, US made keyring:
The center of the spool is wrapped with 18" of Gorilla Tape, which is the strongest Duct Tape available. Gorilla tape has 50% more glue than conventional duct tape, and sticks to damn near anything. Please note that I am not affiliated with Gorilla Tape - I just really like their product.
The result is a very handy bit of kit that you will be proud to have in your EDC.
Having duct tape on your keys is sort of like getting your first smart phone - you don't realize how useful it is until you've had one for a while. Over the last couple years of testing, I've had Keychain Duct Tape save the day on quite a few occasions.
Because Gorilla Tape is so strong, most repairs only require a 1"-2" strip of tape. However, eventually the tape will run out, and the keychain will need to be refilled. Luckily, a 35 yard roll of Gorilla Tape costs $9, and will provide 70 refills.
The best way to refill your keychain is with a power drill. Simply measure out 18" of tape, attach the exposed end to the center of the spool, and then insert the keychain into the drill chuck. From there, run the drill on its lowest RPM to wind the tape.
When it's rolled up, just slice with a box cutter and you're done. This process takes less than 2 minutes once you get the hang of it, and I typically only need to refill mine once or twice a month.
Keychain Duct Tape is 100% Made in the USA, and is Patent Pending.
