Denver, CO – August 19, 2016 – Colorado-based enterprising startup Techknew has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign at Kickstarter seeking support for its new-age multi-tool keychain carabiner CRANK. Backed by cutting edge engineering, the exclusive utility carabiner speaks of versatile functionalities for a hassle-free and safe outdoor adventure.

The crowdfunding campaign is geared to raise $7,500 within September 6, 2016.

“As seasoned adventure enthusiasts ourselves, we understand the importance of a multi-tool for any outdoor activity. After numerous climbing and biking trips to the Rockies had to be left half-way given equipment failure & inconvenience, we finally came up with our breakthrough utility CRANK carabiner. Yes, there are multi-tools around but none of them can assure you the amazing versatility as offered by our unique CRANK- from acting as a screwdriver to bicycle spoke wrench, our new multi-tool carabiner can do it all. Moreover, unlike the chunky regular carabiners, Crank shows a handy lightweight design, easy portability and it can smoothly slip into a wallet anytime. However, such a futuristic production demands robust financial backup and hence this crowdfunding campaign. Your support would be much appreciated”, stated Ian, the CEO of Techknew.

Founded by talented young engineers with an eye on innovation and convenience, Techknew is focused on cutting edge tools and gadgets that maximize safe, simple & active lifestyles.

“Unlike pocket knives, our Crank is always a breeze to trip with, especially when you are into rigorous activities- and you won’t have to face TSA questions here as well.”

Promising multiple functionalities in one – the innovative carabiner can serve as Phillips screwdriver, flathead screwdriver, key-ring, wrench, bicycle spoke wrench, valve, bottle opener and nail puller. Backed by Precision Laser Cut Stainless Steel (A2 304), Crank assures sturdy durability. Its rectangular design offers optimum tool room per sq. Inch. As well as guarantees practical and comfortable portability.

Ian and his team are done with all the needed research, design, testing and prototypes. The funds raised from the crowdfunding campaign would further help them to cater to the different commercialization costs, including price of the raw materials, production, marketing & distribution.

“Crank would be your go-to tool for any outdoor adventure, whether you are planning a camping in the woods or a biking trip high above the mountains. It would also be a handy solution for your regular mishaps like flat tire.”

A cool host of rewards are waiting for backers. These include official Techknew logo sticker and bowdrill instruction YouTube video and Crank carabiners, ranging from 1- 13 carabiners, based on the pledged value. Donations reaching $5,000 would be exclusively rewarded with the 1000 Retail Personalized Carabiners with Custom Laser Engrained Logo.

Visitors at Crank’s Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign page will be treated with the bonus reward of a cool bow drill video where Ian personally shows how to start friction-fire with bowdrill.
