Frequently Asked Questions

Using Keypal

What material is Keypal made out of and is it antimicrobial?
We use 260 series, H02 1/2 hard brass, which is approximately 70% copper and 30% zinc. This brass is antimicrobial brass and has been shown to degrade surface borne microbes faster than steel or plastic.

What are Keypal's dimensions and weight?
Keypal is 3.4" long x 1.4" tall x .063" thick and weighs 0.7 ounces.

How do I care for Keypal?
Keypal is corrosion resistant and can be washed with soap and water, common household disinfectants, or hand sanitizer. As with all items we handle these days, be sure to follow CDC guidelines on washing hands often and thoroughly.

Can I use Keypal on a touchscreen as a stylus?
Yes, on most touchscreens, but it depends on the type of touchscreen. For instance, it will work on resistive touchscreens that detect pressure and on some, but not all, capacitive touchscreens that detect a small electric charge. To avoid scratches, we recommend a gentle tap when using Keypal on touchscreens. 

Can I use Keypal at the airport and on planes?
Yes, Keypal is approved by TSA as a carry on item or in your carry-on bags.

How do I attach Keypal to my keys?
Keypal attaches directly to your keychain using a keyring loop, just like a regular key.

How do I attach Keypal to my ID badge holder?
Keypal has been designed to fit right alongside your ID badge as we have designed the keyhole in the shape of the commonly used clasp for ID badges. Carry Keypal with you all the time and have it handy at every door or touchpoint.

What other ways are people carrying Keypal?

Keypal is so thin it fits in smartphone cases with credit card slots or inside wallets. We have seen people attaching Keypal on a purse, backpack or using a retractable lanyard. It's small enough to fit in the little pocket of your jeans. 

Are there other products you will be launching soon?
Our mission is to imagine and build simple solutions that help us all remain safe, secure, and ready as the world re-opens. We hope Keypal is the first of many things to come and always welcome ideas or feedback.

Do you offer volume discounts?
Absolutely. We have a team dedicated to working with retailers, companies, and educational institutions looking to purchase Keypals for teams, clients, and students. Please fill out our contact form and our volume sales team will be in touch promptly.  

Can I customize Keypal with my company brand? 
Yes! We can add branding to orders of 100 or more. Please fill out our contact form and our volume sales team will be in touch promptly.
