Looking at the bunch of Keys in my hand it seems I've collected enough ancillary bits and bobs that I've amassed jingle-jangle affair of metal and plastic that I feel like a medieval gaoler.

Little Pocket knife
Torch
Phillips & Flat head screwdriver Bit
One of FYGT's trolley keys.
Tritium Vial
Whistle
Carabiner
Telescopic Pen
Paracord Fob
Compass
Housekeys
Car keys

Quite the little collection.!! ( and weight )



So What is on yours? What makes the 'cut' in terms of what is on yours?

That's a fair list!!!
Being honest, keys and SAK. We'll 2 SAK's to be honest. One is a farmer, the other is a classic. I don't really need the farmer on there, but I've less chance of losing it if I keep it there! All on a locking karabiner.

Oh, I'm not proud of my collection !! I'm trying to make decision on how to skinny it down a tad.

Just have a car key and a house key on my key ring. Replaced too many worn out ignition barrels from people having too many things on their key rings.

Two key rings.
One is the set of keys that I would never use without driving to the destination, such as the ignition (obviously), the locking tank cap and the Post Office Box key.
Return insurance key tag (if lost and found, drop in any post box.)

The other is an additional set of all house keys (4), the shed and 2 locks that I do not know what the hell they are for.

Front and back door keys
Garage padlock key.
Work old office key where I store my bike during the day.
Work clocking on fob.
One small key I can't recall what it's for but it's been there so long it has to be important right?
Ditto for a bigger key.
Bike chain key despite not needing the chain due to secure bike stash place.

Car and van keys are separate as I hate dangling keys when driving.

I can see a cull of keys is needed. There's too much on that keyring. Three keys aren't needed.

I too had a cull but ended up with a few sets instead.

Set 1- house key, tritium marker, leather man micra

Set 2 - van and dog crate key

Set 3 - back door key, side gate/shed key, parents house key.

I carry set 1 daily, set 2 if I have the van and set 3 is in my work bag/van/house but seldom needed

Two keys for the house, car keys, a Bluetooth tracker in case I drop them while walking the dog, a plaited leather loop to hang them, a tritium vial, and a tube of matches which are mostly used for church.

I have difficulty seeing how some of you manage to keep your trousers up (no innuendo intended :))

I agree - for ages I thought I maybe related to Quasimodo as my spine contoured to accommodate the off vertical weight in my pockets.

Maybe a little bum bag/fanny pack is required for these things.


( or a suitable balanced counterweight in the opposite pocket !! )
