If I wanted to make one out of a key blank how would I harden it?

cut those valleys down to 999 and you can also use it to bump pick some locks. you may have mentioned that, but I didnt read all the way through. Awesome instructable, though!

you don't need a battery per se...it's solar...well, with an easy mod anyway.

author
Datawolf (author)2012-04-12

Where is the battery located ?

author
Gcamper (author)Datawolf2012-06-07

What battery? Do you realize that bottle openers, can openers, and saws are not electric?

author

Cut a flap in the back of your skull. Forcefully insert D-cell.

Any way of using rechargeable cells here? Or would the "memory effect" of NiCADs get in the way?

author
Datawolf (author)Brian H2012-04-15

Great, you can add "battery charger for car & truck"

Totally agree,you could be saving lives with this thing.Strongly recommend
you send it to the army.

DUDE you need to send that stuff strait to Swiss+Tech! you could design the most amazing utili-key EVER! I have added most of these mods to my Utili-key and have been very happy with the results. only thing i cant figure out is how the knife sharpener works

you could probably cut a piece of steel (or titanium like a peter atwood tool) in to the shape of a key instead of using an actual key, it would probably give you a little more freedom with your design, but i would recommend making a prototype out aluminum first because you could always melt it back down into a sheet

Great idea! Well done, and so creative.

I haven't tried it, but I bet you could harden this by heating it and cooling it quickly. Say, heat over a gas stove and then drop it in a glass of water.

author
lperkins (author)nax2012-04-18

Generally speaking you heat it and cool it rapidly to make it hard and then heat it again to a lower temperature and cool it slightly more slowly to make it less brittle. If you know what specific alloy it is, it's possible to look up the temperatures and cooling speed required.

author
B.F.L.M (author)nax2012-04-15

of course, if you're not careful, you could make it hard, but brittle

If it's made from a standard key blank, it is usless. The metal is too soft. Nice concept.

author
diy_bloke (author)tjk19392012-04-18

I made something like this from a standard key, years ago and after that I hardened it: heating it and then a very quick cool. Works perfect

I have a commercial Utilikey and it is amazing to have a tool that's always with me, even through airport security. Making one from a real key is an extremely clever instructable. In any great R+D project flaws in drafts are inevitable. Knife sharpener, nice add!

Bruce Cannon?! hahahaha.... Check out this short film made here in springfield, mo... It's awesome! http://vimeo.com/13776494 if you like it then you should also check out some other stuff on that guy's page... it's pretty cool....like the "ghoul school" teaser.

If you notice, I did state it was a nice concept. I always thought R&D was what you did before you produced the final product. I agree it is clever.

See Mr. Minit note above. <$1 nickle-iron alloy.

This is great, After I changed my front door key into a multi-tool I used it to cut a hole in the door, then I used it through the hole to undo the door lock. It opened the door!
Whats even better, I used my multi tool to remove the said door, and replace it with a new one.
I'm now gaging for a beer because I can't get the damn top off.

Hex hole can be formed by drilling 1/4" hole and then forcing a 1/4" hex bit through the hole. If the material is tough enough you can hammer it, or force it with a vise backing up the other side with say a small pipe coupling. I use long tapered hex bits lit the smallest Phillips type or small Torx. The bit shoulders act as a broach, then clean it up with a file to enlarge it slightly. If you are near the edge of the metal, make sure to aline the hex bit with a flat closest to the edge of the material.

thats a great concept. i wouldnt even need it to open doors, it would just be nice to have it on my keyring. however, i dont have the tools or knowledge to do much education, i'd love to see somewhere where I could buy one.

Utili key. It's a great little tool that can clip onto a key chain.

dll932 (author)2012-04-15

Nickel steel keyblanks would be harder, as would steel blanks. These are usually used by OEM lock manufactures. (or you could make the whole thing out of steel, hopefully tool steel). A Dremel tool with cutting and grinding bits would simplify making it.

Clever idea!

nunyafb (author)2012-04-15

I Have seen a glaring omission, we need as a group to figure out how to add Bluetooth because as everyone knows everything is better with BLUETOOTH! the Issue I see is where to purchase the steel blanks. Perhaps if we address this we can make this a multi- configuration project. I.E. one configuration for camping, one for Computer repair, survival, ETC. This would be a great multi use thread.

A wireless wire cutter? Sorry, not on. The very thought makes my head hurt.

Where did you get a key made with Nickel-iron alloy? Most keys are brass.

Looks great, but I don't understand how the knife sharpener and the wire cutter works-could you please show how on some pictures maybe? thanks in advance

Not sure about the bottle opener. Wrong way round for leverage.

author
EmcySquare (author)2012-04-11

Very Clever !!
How did you make it anyway?
Most interesting parts are the hex-hole for the bits and the rope cutter.
Please post more detatils

poppyo (author)EmcySquare2012-04-14

I agree. The 1/4" hex hole, good idea.
