Can I carry my Parliament Wallet in my back pocket?
We designed our wallets to be ultra thin and perfect for front pocket carry. You can still carry your wallet in your back pocket but we recommend removing it before sitting. Repeated sitting may bend the aluminum cardholder over time and cause the card ejection mechanism to malfunction.
Can the Parliament Wallet hold coins?
The Parliament Wallet can hold up to 4 coins without becoming too bulky. However, this wallet is mainly designed for cards and cash.
Can I put paper or metal cards inside my Parliament Wallet?
The Parliament is a cardholder wallet, designed for standard credit card-sized plastic cards. We advise you not to use paper or metal cards in these wallets. Paper may jam the mechanism, and metal cards may slide out easily.
I have my wallet, but where is my cardholder?
Don't worry, your cardholder is inside your Parliament Wallet! If you hold your wallet upright, you'll be able to insert a stack of four to six cards (depending on how many are embossed) into the opening. Push the stack of cards all the way in until they're flush with the top of the cardholder. You can now push the trigger to eject your cards in a staggered manner.
What does RFID stand for, and what does it do?
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification, which comes embedded in chips in most credit or debit cards issued in the last decade. These chips are a convenient way to store and transmit data wirelessly. When you hold your card next to a reader and pay without entering a code, that’s RFID!
What is RFID skimming? How do I protect my cards from it?
RFID skimming machines are similar to wireless payment systems, they read the information stored on the chip in your debit or credit cards. Counterfeit RFID skimmers use this technology to illegally obtain data from cards. The metal cardholder in Ekster wallets blocks data from being stolen by disrupting the frequency that allows data to transmit wirelessly.
How does the cardholder work to keep my cards inside it?
The cardholder is designed with a patent friction mechanism. It holds your cards in place when they are inside the cardholder. The friction keeps your cards from flying out of the wallet when you eject them, and keeps them staggered so you can find the right card easily.
If you find your cards sliding out of your cardholder frequently, it may be due to irregular-sized cards or metal cards.
To fix this, follow these steps:
- Make sure you have 6 non-embossed cards inside your cardholder. Make sure none of them is metal.
- Change the order of your cards and test the mechanism again.
- If your cards are unusually thin, try using some embossed cards.
- If none of this works, please contact email@example.com.
I love the card access mechanism! How do I make sure it lasts for a long time?
We’re happy to hear you love using your Ekster! Our wallets are pretty resilient (we’ve run them over with cars and they’ve kept going). Please note, however:
Never force more cards in the cardholder than recommended (maximum of 4 embossed cards or 6 non-embossed cards). Doing so can permanently damage the card access mechanism.
It’s rare, but not impossible for your cards to get stuck in the cardholder. This can happen if there’s dirt or residue blocking the mechanism.
To fix this, follow these steps:
- Shake the cardholder upside-down to eject the cards.
- Blow high-pressure air into the cardholder and shake it upside-down to make sure all residue is removed.
- If this doesn't work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your cards aren't ejecting smoothly, it may be due to irregular card sizes.
To fix this issue, follow these steps:
- Insert your cards halfway into the cardholder.
- Gently move the cards left and right. This puts pressure on the friction system, creating more room for the cards to slide up and down.
- If this doesn’t work, please contact email@example.com.
How do I get rid of stains in the leather?
Leather can be prone to stains, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of them. If stains appear on your wallet, use a damp cloth without any cleaning substances to gently wipe the surface. If the stain proves to be stubborn, use leather cleaners that are designed to clean the stain, but not the leather’s dye. Here is a suggestion on the cleaner you can use.
