We’ve also included product bundles that you can sell for specific holidays throughout the year. By the time you’ve finished this guide, you will have a better understanding of our products at KeySmart and how you can create the best value for your customers.

KeySmart Best-Selling Products

Smart Key Holders with Location Tracking

KeySmart Pro & KeySmart Max

Never lose your keys again with the KeySmart Pro and KeySmart Max: the world’s smartest & most advanced key holders. With in-built Tile™ smart technology, you can ring your keys from your phone and find them on a map. These key holders are perfect for customers who are regularly on the go and need to know where their keys are at all times.

Both key holders have met major success, with the KeySmart Pro performing exceptionally well on a national scale. Ace Hardware and Best Buy are among the retailers we’ve run successful programs within the last year. 

The KeySmart Pro comes in four different colors: Black, Red, Rose Gold, and Slate. 

The KeySmart Max comes in Slate Gray and, recently added, Blush.

KeySmart Rugged

We call it the “Toughest Key Holder”. If your customers are into DIY, the outdoors, or just need a stronger, sturdier option then this is the KeySmart for them. 

This key holder features thicker aircraft aluminum plates for extra durability and a pocket clip so your keys are always within reach. 

The included bottle opener fits compactly into the KeySmart Rugged and features a loop piece to allow you to attach your car keys. To make your KeySmart Rugged the ultimate DIY multi-tool, you can add accessories like the MiniKnife, MultiTool, NanoScissors, or NanoPliers.

It comes in 3 different colors and is suitable for anyone. The KeySmart Original is at the top of our best-selling KeySmart key holders. Pro tip: we typically see the Black color outperform Red and Blue 2 to 1.
