Two carabiners that I can't live without.  The first one is a Nite Ize locking carabiner on my key organizer.  Holds those little doohickies that you get points with at the stores.  The handcuff key is a memento from when dad used to work security.




The second one is another Nite Ize that I keep on my laptop bag so I can hook my water bottle to it.  Quick story on the messenger bag.  I found it next to a dumpster at my then apartment complex.  It had small hole in it that I patched up and I used some brown shoe polish on it to darken the color.  I've been using it for over 10yrs now and it hasn't let me down.

I also use an Nite Ize carabiner, but once in a blue moon it comes undone in my pocket.  Now I see that you are using a locking version.  Perhaps that's the solution to my little nuisance.

Congrats on the badge.  That bag sure has held up.  Good job on upcycling it and getting all those years service from it. 

The locking NiteIZE carabiners are great.

Thank you.  :hatsoff:

They have multicolor and black locking carabiners - https://a.co/d/3uGn4Qf.

Wife and I also found them at Academy on our way to checkout.  My tags kept popping off in my pocket as well so I resorted to a bit of heat shrink to stop it from opening as often.  This is a much better option.  :D

I really like Nite Ize carabiners.  I've had one of their products on me or on my bags for many years now.  I'm unsure of their quality, but I like that they're venturing out into the multi-tool arena.

S-Biners are so handy.  I also like Nite Ize G-hook carabiners as well.
