The Ratch-It Locking Carabiner Keychain conveniently locks the reel in 5” intervals, making this a popular reel to secure machinery keys or small tools. Built in the USA with globally sourced materials, the Ratch-It has a strong molded black polycarbonate case and a retractable cord made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber. Attach your keys or small tools to the split ring and secure the carabiner to your belt clip, work belt or backpack. When you need your keys just pull them out and the reel will automatically lock. When you're done, give the reel a small tug and let it go, the built-in tether retracts back into place until you need your keys again again.

I like this product. I used it to cheat my busy forgetfulness. I used it to tether my Leatherman multi-function tool. This forced me to ensure that I would not lose my tool after setting it down while busy with other things. Setting it down on the bumper of an RV is a sure way to lose it. After use I would put the tool in my pocket still tethered firmly on my belt and go about my day. The locking mechanism provides plenty of range for use without tension. The feature that would make this an undisputed excellent product is a reinforced opening for the cord. Through use and friction, the cord cut the PC casing. I didn't notice this until the cord became pinched in its own cut groove. I had tried to glue a small washer onto the opening to remove the friction on the casing, but the glue I used didn't work very long and the washer came off. I am now purchasing a full metal case and likely a metal cord but will have to deal with the constant tension on the cord.
Glad I bought both the carabiner and the clip on. Each comes in handy for different uses. The only thing missing for my uses for both products is to have a lock so the chain doesn't release to the 1st ratchet which it has a tendency to do. But I can't rate it less because I knew it did not have this feature when I bought it.
it appears to be well made and functional... I would like a little more tension in the lead so it doesn't payout on it's own...
Like the product. I fish on Hobie Revo 13 kayak and practice CPR(catch, photo, release). The Key Bak Ratcheting carabiner is attached to my camera. The Key Bak gives me piece of mind that I will not camera will not be lost in the deep blue. The Key Bak operates very easy and smoothly. Would recommend the product.
This item is unique as it locks and it is very helpful.
Wanted to add to my previous review that the ratcheting lock works great and is helpful that you can easily use without the pull of the retraction.
A little bigger then I expected but I got use to it and love it will share with friend to get on holds my truck keys as I’m a trucker and easy to retract and use when opening my doors and side boxes. Keep up the good work
I used these in an unconventional way. I initially bought hanging basket pulleys, but my solar power jars weren't heavy enough to lock the mechanism in place with those, so I researched quiet a bit and came upon these, with some trial and error I finally ordered the 13oz ratch-it locking with carabiner, and wow, these work like a charm. I can lower and raise throughout the day to charge my lights. Love this product! Thank you!
