The Secret to Incredible EDC Isn’t Multiplicity… It’s Modularity

Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet sported 6 infinity stones that could control every aspect of reality, rendering him the most powerful being in the entire universe… The Anywhere Tools Modular EDC is so all-encompassing and capable that it’s pretty much the Infinity Gauntlet of the EDC world. (No, Marvel did not pay me for that reference)

Think multi-tool, then think about multi-tools that join together to become an even greater multi-tool. That’s the basic design brief of the Anywhere Tools Modular EDC. Created to fit into one another with its inventive modular setup, the Anywhere Tools can be used and carried separately, or combined together to form a veritable toolbox that fits in your pocket.

While most multi-tools are, in fact, a set of multiple tools, the Anywhere Tools looks at each individual tool as a module with its own independent identity. With five modules to choose from, the Anywhere Tools, as its name suggests, can be used anywhere and for virtually any scenario. A knife module and a multi-tool module make up for all your regular EDC needs, from cutting, shearing, and whittling to box-opening, bottle opening, and screw/bolt tightening. Their design allows you to snap on additional outer modules to them, like the pocket flare, a mini-flashlight unit with both torch and lantern modes, allowing you to aim a focused beam, or light up an area with ambient lighting… or the charger cable module that lets you carry a charging and data transfer cable on you at all times, letting you plug into machines, chargers, or power banks literally anywhere you go. Lastly, comes the pocket clip that snaps onto the back of all modules, letting you wear your EDC on your sleeve, pocket, or even secure them inside your backpack. The pocket clip doubles up as a money clip too, giving the already-versatile EDC the role of a wallet as well. What’s better is that the entire, newly designed set is compatible with Keyport’s other multi-tool offerings like the Pivot and Slide 3.0, allowing you to further attach key organizers and USB sticks to your incredibly versatile multi-tool sandwich with the outer models on the outside, and the mid-modules between.

The smartness and the sensibility in Anywhere Tools’ modular approach is recognizing that you won’t need every tool every single day, so there’s no point carrying them all together. It allows you to build the tool-set you need, rather than forcing you to adopt an all-in-one approach. It also means you can use each tool independently, letting you hold a torchlight in one hand, and a screwdriver in another, giving you the freedom to use your tools in a much more natural and useful manner. Once you’re done, snap all the tools together into one small energy-bar sized unit that is literally the condensed, contemporary version of Batman’s utility belt.

Anywhere Tools is a major addition to Keyport’s modular everyday carry system by introducing a series of new tech and tool modules along with another way to carry them – the Anywhere Pocket Clip. The Pocket Clip and improved modular stacking system gives you a whole new array of carry options for Keyport Modules in addition to attaching them to the Keyport Pivot and Keyport Slide 3.0. The Keyport system is the most advanced EDC solution available because of its one-of-a-kind modularity, its broad range of customization choices, and its wide variety of carry options.

anyhwere_tools_09

Anywhere Tools are part of a system designed upon the principals of  convenience, utility, and style. Our goal is to transform your everyday carry from a bulky, oddly shaped, noisy assemblage of things you always haul around with you to a fully customized set of tools and tech that accompany you on all of your adventures without getting in the way.

Modular – Take only the items you want with you. No need to schlep a bulky, jingly jangly, pocket full of keys and other oddly shaped personal items alongside a fixed tool with several implements you will rarely, if ever, use.

Stackable – Several of the modules are stackable (they call them mid-modules) meaning you can carry more than one together on a single pocket clip. Both the MOCA II and the NEBA Knife Modules are mid-modules which allows other modules to be stacked on top of them. Mid-modules are easily identified by their machined aluminum scales with the three square holes. The Pocket Flare Mini-Flashlight and WeeLINK Cable Charger are outer modules, which means that they can stack on top of a mid-module but cannot be stacked upon as they form the top or outer most layer.

Quick and Easy On / Off – Modules are easily added or removed from the Pocket Clip, Pivot or Slide with our RuSH Module Removal Tool or a heavy-duty paperclip, pen, or other device with a simple point.

Keyport Compatible – All of the modules in this campaign are compatible with both the Keyport Slide 3.0 (sold separately) and the Keyport Pivot (available as an add-on for 25% OFF). Equal parts modular key organizer + custom multi-tool + exclusive lost & found recovery service all-in-one, Keyport devices complete the ultimate fully customizable everyday carry system.


Anywhere Pocket Clip™

anyhwere_tools_07

Constructed of one piece hardened spring steel, the Anywhere Pocket Clip uses the same cutting-edge modular attachment feature as the Keyport Pivot and Slide 3.0.  The unique no-fastener design allows you to attach and detach modules in a literal snap. It can also be used as a money clip. All modules that fit the Pivot and Slide 3.0 are compatible with the Pocket Clip.


MOCA™ II Module

anyhwere_tools_06

Designed especially with Slide owners in mind, the MOCA II (11-In-1) is an update on our MOCA 10-In-1 Multi-Tool. We have updated the design to feature a unique stowage latch, a 180 degree stop, and refined the tip to include both a Phillips and a flathead screwdriver, along with an improved cord cutter that slices through boxes, cords, and nearly anything else with ease. The MOCA II is a mid-module, so you can stack other modules or Side Plates on top of the scale for extra comfort and personalization.

Tools included: Bottle Opener • Flathead Screwdriver • Phillips Head Screwdriver • Cord Cutter • Box Opener • Scoring Tool • Hex Bit Driver • 1/4 inch Wrench • 5/16 inch Wrench • 3/8 inch Wrench 1-inch Ruler + 1 cm Ruler


NEBA Knife™ Module

anyhwere_tools_05

Named in honor of their fallen team member, Nebiyu Detti, this high-quality EDC pocketknife carries on his name and spirit. Whenever anyone needed a little help, Neb was always there with his signature slogan, “I got you.” The NEBA Knife continues in this tradition with a stylish, beefier pocketknife that will serve you well in a pinch. The slip-joint knife features a 2″ clip point blade and an improved spring mechanism with a half stop and thumb jibbing for extra grip. With the Pocket Clip attached it is very comfortable to hold with no unpleasant hot spots. The NEBA Knife is also a mid-module, so you can stack other modules or Side Plates on top of it.


Pocket Flare™ Module

anyhwere_tools_04

An upgrade from our base mini-flashlight unit, the Pocket Flare is over two times brighter (27 lumens vs. 12 lumens max output) and features lamp mode, a lantern-style light around the entire base of the module to cast a wider light than that of the front beam. We also replaced the slider button with a push button. The Pocket Flare is rechargeable via USB micro, displaying red during charge mode and green when fully charged.


WeeLINK™ Charger Cable Module

anyhwere_tools_03

Everyone these days appears to be carrying multiple charger cables stuffed in their backpack, purse, or even pocket. Yet, as the old saying goes, it feels like there is never one around when you need it most. Enter the WeeLink Charger Cable Module. Available in USB to Micro USB, USB to Lightning, and USB to USB-C, WeeLINK charger cables are easily accessible to keep all of your most important devices powered up.


ParaPull

anyhwere_tools_02

Alongside the Anywhere Pocket Clip, we designed two products that work in concert to complement the system.

The ParaPull is a short paracord zipper pull style lanyard that makes it easy to pull your Pocket Clip out when you need to get a handle on it.  The ParaPull works equally well connecting loose items to either a Pivot or a Slide.


RuSH Multi-Purpose Tool

anyhwere_tools_01

Remove / Screw / Hang – The RuSH Multi-Purpose Tool makes removing modules, particularly stacked modules, a piece of cake. The RuSH Tool doubles as a suspension clip and features a bottle opener and flathead screwdriver to tighten/loosen the Pivot screw. In addition, the RuSH Tool can be stowed in a Pivot without having to disassemble it.
