Help Me Out Here

Dan, Spen, MBHanzo, and the rest of you:

I need something.

I have a leather key clip from JRE Industries that I wear on my belt to carry some of my many keys. It's just long enough that I can drop the keyring into my pocket and the keys don't rattle around while I'm moving from one place to another but they're also easily accessible and secure.

I need something similar with the ability to carry multiple keyrings/split rings. I have a set of keys for the swim club, I have a set of keys for the house, I have a set of keys for my gun locks, I have a set of keys for the car, and I have a set of keys for various padlocks. I also, on occasion, like to carry a firesteel, striker, and whistle on a split ring. I may need any or all of these keys on a regular basis so leaving them at home would be a bad idea.

I don't think I want to carry them all at the same time but I'd like to be able to quickly and easily swap one keyring for another as my schedule dictated.

How do you manage your keys? Have you seen a product that'll accommodate multiple keyrings that isn't too bulky for regular use?

Maybe our creative leather and plastic benders can come up with something that'll work.

Thanks for reading,

Maybe not exactly what you're looking for, but maybe something along these lines could be incorporated into your solution:

Amazon Keyring

Definitely. That's on the right track for sure.

Great find!

Yeah, I had the same idea. Bison Designs makes one, and I first saw it on Doug Ritters "Equipped To Survive" website. I like it, and saw one at REI and picked it up. Have been using one for quite a while.

You could have 50 rings if you wanted, and only use 5 at a time.

just a note as an ex GM mechanic.. Watch out for too many key's on a keychain,the weight will wear out the tumbler's in the ignition switch
