I researched on numerous of key organizers available in market, they are expensive and have their limitations.
None can satisfy my needs, because I have a car key and a detachable Utility key i like to incorporate into the setup.

So I decided to make my own, the objectives are ALLCQS (Adaptable, Low-cost, Lightweight, Compact, Quiet & Simple).
I went down to hardware store to pick up a set of stainless steel #8-32 screw and nut, two washers and a sister clip, bolt the keys together, a few drops of super glue on the screw thread at the end. The nut is not going undone itself unless I use pliers.

I am very happy with the end result and I hope you guys will too.

nice keys

i tried something very similar but it didn't work.

my car key wouldn't fit in the ignition  :facepalm:

let me know how yours work for you.

ja

Nice job on the keys.  :tu:
I don't have enough keys to do something like that. :facepalm:

Things should be made as simple as possible, and not simpler.

Joel, try placing the car key at one end of the line up like I did, not in the middle, might help.

yeah that is how I made it. The car keys first.

I'm always adding or removing keys with my current job so I haven't tried to do anything with my keys in a few years

I should try again. Thin time on a set I use just for home.
I'm going to have some keys made next week.

I blame kampfer

Blame me? You have no idea how many MTs you guys "made" me buy since I joined MTO.

If you have lots keys, you can use this method to divide them into groups to orangish them.
Work, house, misc, etc..

I purchased my first ever folding knife added to my loadout.
Benchmade 530, I hope it is a good choice for EDC blade, so far I like it very much.

you choose wisely

the 530 is my favorite benchmade to edc carry.

its so light and thin it feels like you're not even carrying a knife.

very nice carry :tu:

I walked into the knife store, they have maybe about 1000 different ones on display, I was pretty lost..... :think:

So I pull an old trick of mine, ask the salesman: What do you EDC?

He pulled out a 530 from his pocket.... I am a bayonet guy, so as soon as I saw that spear point shape, that is it for me. I just love the look of it.

Got myself a Maxpedition, nice product!  :tu: Well made and looks cool.
TC-1 is the smallest in the series they offer, comparing to TC-2 & TC-3, I wish I ordered a TC-2 instead, because the TC-1 barely fits the stuff I  want to carry. There is absolutely no room for anything else. I could not even swap Croc to Pirahna, too tight.

The side webbing are non-stretchable, which is the biggest complain I have.
I wish they were made of stretchable elastic material.
With the internal pocket is completely filled, I could not slide anything under them. I must add another elastic string to it in order to carry my LD01.

I like to show you my other part of EDC, it is my mobile office, it is my entertainment center, it is my home away from home. Yes, it is 18 lbs and I haul it everyday everywhere I go.

I carry a bag every day with very similar items Kampfer.  I've never weighed it though.  :think:

I like the idea of your pocketable office!

And I recognize your ESC key  ;)
You have a great kind of people there, one of my friends married a taiwanese girl and a second one is in the falling-in-love stage  :D

Nice set up!!! Only 1lb 11.1 oz. Very nice!. Mine weighs twice that, and I don't have any sheaths today.
