Security keys, which resemble thumb drives used to authenticate devices and accounts, usually have a small hole through which a keychain can be attached. While this is a convenient way to transport security keys, it also puts them in danger of being damaged.
Breaking a security key by accident can be a major pain, where the Pivot 2.0 comes in. Users may keep their keys — both conventional metal and security keys — safely nestled inside a robust metal frame with this new accessory from Yubico and Keyport.
The Pivot 2.0 is black anodized 6061 aluminum with a ratcheting-action retaining screw that holds the keys in place. The Pivot 2.0 can hold up to eight objects, including Yubico’s YubiKey security keys. The carrying attachment is 3.2 inches long and 0.6 inches wide, and it weighs little under an ounce (before keys are attached).
Overall, the Pivot 2.0 makes it easier to carry security keys in a backpack or pocket without fear of them being damaged. When the security key is linked, the accessory also makes it easier to keep keys organized and is better suited for laying next to a laptop.
On the other hand, Keyport has devised a compact flashlight, charger cord, OmniFob Smart Remote, and NEBA Knife that can be linked to the Pivot key organizer. It’s possible to carry a slim RFID card or fob, a small multitool attachment, and even a SIM card clip with the accessories.
