Nice.  I wished Toyota would've used a key/fob so we dont have to carry both.  Not a huge issue just don't love having to carry both.   

I don't like the size of the combined fob/key, which is why I don't have one for my wife's car on the ring.  I could really live without the fob for my truck.  Old school.  ;)

The best men carry pocket knives, and then he gave me one.

I remember those days.  My 82 and 88 Honda were key only.  Those were my most modern cars prior to a Comet and 74 T Bird.

I'm seeing a lot of set ups with car keys.  A heavy keyring hanging from an ignition lock cylinder while driving will damage both the key and the lock over time.  All the bouncing up and down and swinging back and forth slowly grinds down all the teeth.  The lock will get harder and harder to use, till one day the lock won't turn.  If you want to avoid a very expensive repair job it would be best to have a separate ring with just the vehicle key and it's fob that can taken on and off the main set for driving.  A heavy key ring is best left on your hip while you drive.

It's just a bit of advice. It's your car, your keys, your choice.

You can keep them all together and use a quick detach to separate them when it's time to drive for ease of use.

Yeah, you guys got it.  Just remember to exercise key discipline so you don't lock yourself out.

Hot wiring might start the engine, but it doesn't unlock the steering wheel or free up the shifter.

Not a problem for me personally, I have an old Nissan key, so the buttons are built in but it's barely bigger than a non electronic key. If it's in the car then the car ain't getting locked  :salute:

Now I awlways keep house and car bike keys seperate.

That way if I lose the bike keys I can uber it home (and get in) or, if I lose the house keys I can get home and wake up Mrs Surge (this is likely to be impossible or painful  :twak: )

Either way, it's only one set of keys to replace  :dunno: (YMMV)

For everyone that's put down a DoohicKey tool, a short story.

This past weekend, my daughter asked if I wanted to go to an air show at a nearby Air Force Base.  Of course, yeah.  When we got there I was told; no knives and the like.  So my multitool, SAK, anything with a blade had to stay in the truck.
Well, wouldn't you know that a screw came loose on the wheel of my wheelchair. 
After a little bit of thinking I remembered that I keep a DoohicKey Plus on my keyring.
Couple minutes later I was rolling along purdy as ever.

I guess I never updated on this subject, but my kid bought me this for my bday last month, I was previously only carrying a Nitecore Tube and that only had 45lumens but was still a good light, but come on, this guys cool! The funny thing was after I showed the kid how it worked he was like totally amazed and was like “so dad, I was wondering if I could have your old one”? So I was like sure I only need one keychain, so I charged both of them up ready to go and when he woke up the next day I handed it off and said here you go, so he was excited then asks, “so dad, what type of batteries does this take”? I was like dude you just plug it in and recharge it, his face lit up SERIOUSLY? That kid snatched it from my hands with the biggest smile, the funny part was he said he just might have to get one of the other ones too,,

Very cool  :tu:  I am amazed at today's flash light technology. Not too long ago had to strap on an external bulky, heavy batter pack to get some decent light.

My Granddad's Koehler cap lamp's battery alone weighs probably 5 pounds, and he had to lug that thing on his toolbelt in the mines about 8 hours a day. Charger is the size of a toaster, and it takes at least a day to fully recharge.  Almost all my LED EDC lights weigh about as much as the AA and AAA batteries in them (with the exception of the i5T and i2R that are rechargeable), have MUCH more output, run for far longer, and if they are rechargeable, they take a couple of hours at most.

And to think, the designs weren't updated to lighter Li-Ion batteries or LEDs until 2012? I think. So, they remained unchanged for 50 years.

Use to have the 15 item (2 keys!) Keychain of death! Now just a ti whistle, doohickey, 2 keys and the dog's tag. (My dog tag has a SSN on it so NG)
Work keys separate, car fob separate....
