Orbitkey Key Holders

The Orbitkey is the award winning organised keyholder that stops the jangling, avoids scratching your other stuff, is nice to hold...and looks very smart indeed.

Orbitkey organises your keys because it makes sure that a particular key is always in the same spot when you want to use it - house key on the far left, best friend's door key on the far right, etc.

And a "nice to hold" factor really matters : It offers something much bigger to hold onto than a fiddly little key, and makes it much easier and quicker to unlock doors (anyone with grip issues needs an Orbitkey NOW). It's also easy to add or subtract keys with Orbitkey – it's easily unlocked with a five or ten cent piece. You can keep adding up to around seven keys. There are also separate everyday carry accessories available to fit - a bottle opener, USB stick, or a multi-tool

And there's a special D-ring attachment for hefty car keys. They won't fit inside with regular keys, but then again car keys are often the ones worth flaunting… and used most frequently.

Orbitkey is an Australian invention. It's the work of young Australian RMIT Design School Graduate Charles NG and his pharmacist friend Rex Kuo. They both hated jangly keys, and Charles became increasingly annoyed by them when he went for his morning jog. A Kickstarter campaign went on to become one of the most successful in Australian crowd-funding history. Now the result is literally at hand.

Not to rest on their laurels, Orbitkey was given a gentle update in 2017 to make it lighter and slimmer. Whilst the mechanisms are identical, Orbitkey is available in three different materials. You can check out The Good Store's range of Orbitkeys and accessories  here
