An important tool aboard any vessel the inclinometer, or clinometer level, is used to measure angles and elevations, and aid sailors in determining the bearing of their ship. Represented in this fully functional brass keyring, the clinometer also assures safety as a visual representation of pitch and roll. As a stationary tool aligned with a ship’s axis and acted upon only by gravity, the plumb of a clinometer will always point directly down, thereby giving the angle of tilt. With one of these fabulous nautical keychains you can witness this force of nature for yourself as the bubble will always be centered according to gravity. When the deep tranquility of night falls over the ocean, discover yet another amazing use for your clinometer brass keyring as you decipher your ship’s latitude and bearing. As the North Star, Polaris, is aligned with Earth’s rotational axis it appears fixed in the Northern Hemisphere’s night sky, creating a directional beacon that has been used by sailors since the first explorations of the seas. By aligning the center of your brass keyring with Polaris, as the bubble travels to the correctly offset angle, you will amazingly be given your current heading. These wonderful brass keyrings are designed to keep your keys aligned and in order, as well as provide a useful tool as you sail across the seas. Show off your nautical knowhow, remind yourself of the freedom of the open ocean, and enjoy the history and ingenuity encompassed in your wonderful clinometer brass keyring.
