And there you go, fully loaded two good pics.. got the sak, flashlight, duct tape, 4 in 1 screwdriver, dog tag that matches the dogs in case he ever gets lost, the scan cards, and of course the keys!

:like: that’s worked really well JR, duct tape is a good idea, hard to tell how you do that, is it wrapped around something?

Thanks, I think it really worked out, I had to put split rings on the two(tag/sak & store card/4way) this way they hung narrow vs wide and hitting both sides,, the keys still do but nothing bad,
As for the duct tape, I have two setups, one I took a 2” cotterpin and wrapped it, only prob is over time the tape starts to o<—<, the tape stays on the pin but tape itself starts falling down itself, but the one I have on my keys at the moment, I believe I made, using a bolt and two nuts, made it to the right length, tightened the two nuts, then gridded everything to a smaller size, one so what gets wrapped would allow more tape, and the two nuts so they didn’t look like nuts, and drilled a hole for a split ring, thus when the tape was wrapped it would be held up by the bolts head and it wouldn’t allow the tape to fall,, I had pics of another but I have no clue where they are,,

Found it! The Mrs and I were walking home one day and I think I found it in the road, I was like “huh, I like it, I think this would work” sure enough it was spot on the right length, so I put the tape on and done,, still don’t know what it is, but who cares it works, of course it will probably do the same as the cotterpin and the tape will <|<==< start sliding,,

Must say carries pretty nice! As for the light it’s a Nitecore Tiki GITD Light, 300 Lumen! I originally had a Nitecore Tube, but there only 55 lumen, so I wanted the upgrade, so like over a year ago I got it, I gave the Tube to the kid to go with his keys and he was loving it, on/off throughout the house, then he was like “dad, what kind of batteries does this take I think I need to replace them”  :dunno: I was like :facepalm: buddy, all you have to do is open the little rubber flap on the side and plug it in to recharge it,, so he was like “oh no way, that’s cool” :tu: lol..

Little update, I must say that keyring setup carry’s very well, I hardly know it’s there, the one little hiccup is a specific pair of convertible pants I have, the belt loop is not in that normal spot on the side, it’s more toward the back, so when sitting in the kids car I have to pull the keys aside so I don’t sit on them, but other pants and shorts I haven’t noticed anything and they carry well,,

Not on my keyring, yet.  As of now it's attached to an Alox MiniChamp.

Picked it up off of the Temu site to test out their shipping.

I know the GeeKey has a smoking pipe built in and although I no longer smoke makes it tempting just in case :rofl:

Let us know if you try it PC be interested to know if it works :tu:

No pipe on the clone.   ¯⁠\⁠_⁠(⁠ツ⁠)⁠_⁠/⁠¯
I'm a cigar guy these days anyway.
The other functions seem to be fairly good compared to similar tools.
I'm pleased.

Got the Tiki today. Clip and split ring not arthritis friendly. Cheap plastic? But it is Bright!
Will have to test, maybe for the nightstand?

NO, that split ring isn’t friendly, that’s why it’s on one of the G-biners, I didn’t think it was cheap, it seamed pretty good, I must say it’s come in handy!

I'm pleased.

I actually checked and the original Geekey still has the pipe feature.  The clone doesn't but has the opening of the mouthpiece drilled in about 1/4 inch.  I guess if you were handy enough you could drill it out, but there's definitely not enough room in the bowl.

Here's the listing of the various functions.
One, that I think is cool is the design of the wrenches.  Standard ón one side and metric on the other.  Haven't tried them out yet but I have used the Phillips screwdriver on a bench I made years ago.  Worked just fine.

I’m sure some of you have seen or heard of the inchworm or centipede keychains, well I kinda wanted one but wasn’t paying the price, so I looked around but couldn’t find anything cheaper, so I figured why not try something myself? :dunno: I just so wish I had a lathe, anyway, I looked around the house trying to come up with something I could use and well, I found these, simple crochet needles, now, how do I make the marks that don’t wear off? So I marked the inch and half inch marks with a thin marker, went to the workstation and put the needle in the drill, I tried a few things that didn’t really work but found my triangle file and it work perfect, I made the inch a little wider then the half’s, then since it was working, I marked the quarters and then lightly scored lines, it didn’t come out perfect but it kinda worked, I mean hey I used a drill laying on a workbench with the trigger pull with a clamp, I then used a grinder and cut the end off and curved it, and put a hole in the middle so I can put a split ring on it,,

A triangle file would also work.  Looks like you might like a pocket wrench.  They have mm and inch.  2 inch total marked off in 1/16th increments.  Pretty handy.

Well, if our order ever gets here, one thing I did have her sneak this in,, a doohickey, it’s not a pocket wrench as much as I would have liked to find one but you just can’t find them, but on the keychain I have a alox sak, so I have some tools, but not a pry bar, ruler, or wrench, and well, it kinda has most of the tools, plus I liked the carabiner, fig it would make it easy to get on/off the keychain,, so yeah I’ll have a ruler in both metric and standard, but I still made that imitation inchworm, I know I have a 5” flat bar somewhere that doesn’t get used, I know where the one that does but the one that doesn’t get used I could cut in half cutting the 90° off, rounding the end off and drilling a hole for the keychain, but oh well,,
