How to use Billfodl

This article explains how to save your 24-word recovery phrase with Billfodl.

What is Billfodl?

Billfodl is a solid steel case to store and protect your 24-word recovery phrase, designed to resist fire, water - and more.

You can store up to 96 characters, allowing you to backup an entire 24-word recovery phrase in one unit. Don't worry if your entire recovery phrase is longer than 96 characters; you only need the first 4 letters of each word to fully backup your coins. Since the 24-word recovery phrase is generated from the BIP-39 list of words (2048 words), there won’t be two identical words with the same first 4 letters and you will be able to easily identify the word.


Steps to replace your 24-word recovery sheet with steel

  1. Open the Billfodl.
  2. Using a tile, screwdriver, or coin, turn the top screw so that the groove is horizontal.
  3. Press down with the tile on the bottom spring lock.
  4. While the spring is depressed, pull the gate open.
  5. Slide in the first 4 letters of each of your first 12 words.
     In case your word is composed of only 3 letters, you should add an empty tile to separate the word.
  6. Close the gate by turning the top screw so that the groove is vertical.
  7. Push the bottom spring lock back into place.
  8. Repeat the same process on another side of the Billfodl with the remaining 12 words.
  9. Close the Billfodl and place it in a safe place.
