KeyPod: a little padlock for your keys
Though originally designed with surfers in mind, the KeyPod might end up being useful in any number of situations. The KeyPod is a small little three-digit padlock with an integrated compartment to stow keys. The idea originated with surfers, who typically have to decide between taking their car keys with them into the water (tucked into wetsuits, boardshorts, or a little compartment on the leash) or leave their key "hidden" somewhere under a bumper or edge of their car. Unfortunately both options have their risks, and stories of being locked out or without one's belongings are familiar. Enter the KeyPod, which locks to your vehicle, while also ensuring your key stays safe! In an era where more and more car models are only providing electronic keys (try taking those into the ocean) and keyless fobs for access to work proliferate, the KeyPod is becoming an increasingly necessary accessory. In fact, even if you're not the type to hit the beach with your board in hand you may find the KeyPod useful. You never know when you may need to stash something away quickly and securely. With a generous compartment for storage, you never, never know.
