I use one of these. I think it's nice and lightweight, it's silent, and it protects the rest of the stuff in my pocket from the keys.

No affiliation, and bought the thingie in a local brick and mortar store, so no idea of the quality of their webshop.

I really like the the different stuff people have made in this thread.

I must say this new little setup is pretty good, it's taking a little to get used to because it doesn't hang down like what I used to have, so as I reach down to grab them they ain't there? There just up higher, but the real nice thing is one hand unclip or clip on is soooo much easier!

Do you find that you sometimes walk around in circles with that set-up??   :D :D

I've started carrying my keys clipped to a belt loop and dangled into my back left pocket. Works well just have to take them out before sitting down for a long period of time.

I think after rearranging my keychain so many times I just have to accept I will always have 2 keychains unless I want a heavy bulky rattling bunch of keys hanging from my belt.  Now I carry one set in my pocket while my vehicle key and fob are on my Victorinox belt hanger for ease of accessibility.

Have been experimenting with set ups, tried the nite-ize plastic s-biner#2 but felt it was too small especially if you have a few or many pounds on your belly, hard to get on and off belt loop with fat stomach in the way  :rofl:

Now I went up to the #3 s biner, but am getting worried split ring will fish its way off by itself. so i'm contemplating the locking version, and new jeans, this is very important cause I have had belt loops break and they are tough to sew back on since they are very thick denim.

In the meantime I added a small nylon hanger to the sbiner that has loops for split ring, seems ok, but is adding too much length to set up. Not sure there is ever an end to this key config thing.

That they do and it hurts to attempt to stitch them by hand! That's why I fig it would be good for something to go around the belt itself rather then a loop. Only thing that sucks is your sooo used to where the loop is, so by going with something that goes around the belt it's either too far forward or too far back! Kinda like getting new jeans or a new sheath, something just doesn't feel right on location..

I stopped having my key dangle from my belt loops as well.  Seems like a bad idea IMO and one can "easily" attach them to a belt or pocket or waist band. 

I love the Victorinox belt hanger.  I dislike the keys I carry.

I thought of getting one of those, but for the sak instead.. put the sak in the sheath then hook up the belt clip with a small chain, long enough to take the sak out, but not so it's dangling. This way if the sak(the Pharmber) ever came out of the sheath it wouldn't go anywhere without me knowing! That and I guess it would look good, no?

Using this set up with nite ize #3 s biner, added a small zip tie to one of the gates which locks it closed,
Vic classic and 47's mini and a few swivel lobster clasps to easily remove them from split ring. was gonna replace the S biner with the locking version, but the zip tie works well. I didnt like the split ring directly on the s biner cause the keys would pass through it from time to time and if you use the light some times keys jut out and its awkward, so I added the  black nylon hanger. working pretty well, but still not perfect.

Its a great idea.  I fashioned a chain that did what you are describing but abandoned it.  I may try that again actually.  I really like the Victoriniox belt thing it looks great and the shield  :tu:

My house has a keypad and doesnt need a metal key and i leave my vehicle keys in my coat pocket.
But my work keys are attached to some wound parchute cord (ya never know?)
This extends it so when i clip it onto my belt loop on my pants it fits deeper into my pocket and i dont sound like a jail guard walking down the halls.
Also its long enough for me to unlock doors and swipe the nfc fob without unclipping it.

It worked pretty good, but zip tie seemed to loosen its grasp after a few weeks, so I caved and got the #3 S Biner with the slide locks, needed some button cells for my vics and battery junction was only place I could find the locking sbiner #3 and batteries for swisscard lite & midnight mini champ. seems to lock up nicely and better than my rigged version.

thats a good idea. I kinda like this locking S Biner, its black version. now that I got a battery for midnight mini champ I remember why I didn't care when old one died..the red LED is so weak, its almost useless, but I will probably put it back on keychain rotation anyway in place of the classic, its a really cool tool but the light is lacking

I had one of those but have no clue where it disappeared to, and yeah like no light! But still so cool! I ended up getting a nitecore tube, that throws freaking light and it's the old one, along with a alox classic..

It can carry upto 12 keys and also a ring for larger or extra keys. No more jingling sounds.
