I have to preface this review with the admission that I am a bit of a gadget junkie and am also quite particular about my gadgets as well.
A few years ago some tech sites boasted about a not yet to market product called the Keyport. It seemed like vaporware as nothing ever became of it in the few months after the news of it erupted onto the web which didn't appease the "if it's on the internet now then I want it now" crowd. Thankfully the minds behind the Keyport concept didn't give up and they finally made the product and have begun selling it.
I purchased my Keyport in the latest color edition of black with the "chipped auto bundle" since I am driving a second generation Tacoma with the transponder chip built into the key. I printed out the key ID PDF file, filled it out, laid the keys I wanted to add to my Keyport onto it and snapped the pictures of it for their locksmiths to review to ensure that when they shipped my Keyport to me the blade blanks would work properly in the locks required. The only thing I had to do above what purchasers of the standard bundle Keyport customers do is provide one of my chipped keys for direct modification into the new key and into the auto chip blade that occupies one of the blade slots. This limits my overall maximum number of actual keys inside the Keyport to five as the sixth slot is occupied by the transponder chip blade.
Once I received the Keyport with the blank blades I simply paired the blanks to the original keys and took them to a local locksmith for cutting. The locksmith was very impressed with the Keyport and stated multiple times that it was the best engineered device of its kind that he had every handled. Impressed me as he has been in the locksmith industry for over twenty years.
Once home the newly cut key blades simply slide in with the colored nodes pressed into them easily by hand that allow for the deploying of the desired key. The keys are locked back in the retracted position and into the deployed position by the nodes which means you don't have to hold the desired key node to keep it from retracting from resistance from the lock. With the nodes locking the keys in place while retracted there is no concern of keys sticking out to tear pocket fabric or poke you in the leg or worse when you sit down.
This is the Keyport with the factory Tacoma remote entry fob. I have my Tacoma key, the transponder blade, a PO Box key, and three house keys inside the Keyport. The light colored stick is a Tritium key fob that glows continuously for at least ten years. If you have tritium in your watches, compasses, or weapon sights then you are familiar with the material already. Makes dropping my keys in the dark less embarasing as I can find them much faster.
The small silver hook is a pocket dangler that keeps my keys from settling into the bottom of my pocket making that uncomfortable knot in the bottom of my pocket.
This is the Tacoma key in the deployed position.
This is what the transponder blade looks like. No need to actually deploy it however.
Lowest light image I could take with my phone that showed some of the glowing properties of the tritium fob that I attached.
