    Boath my wife’s and my vehicle have key fobs. I don’t like to hang keys off my belt. Does anybody have a good way to carry 2 fobs in your pocket or a key chain where I can easily remove the fob of the vehicle I’m not driving.

    Hey JD,
    That sounds similiar to this...
    https://www.amazon.com/s?k=maxpedition+gear+tritium+key+ring&ref=is_s

    Of course there's other low profile ways to accomplish this using something like keychain gate clips...

    There's other clips, most would work fine, just want something that has a good secure lockup on the the spring loaded gate portion, like the Tec Acc Python.

    Ha! Swan swooped in !! But yeah we're thinking along the same lines. ;)

    I have two vehicles with key fobs and I put each on its own s-biner microlock. I only put on the one I’m driving. I also put my keychain knife on one, so if I’m going somewhere it is not allowed, it is quickly removed.

    Another +1 for the Tec Python. I use a Pangea designs Pickpocket. I have a split ring holding a lanyard in one of the top holes. Then, I clip the keys for one or two vehicles through that split ring using the Tec Python clip. It gets a little bulky with two sets at once, but this setup allows me to choose between the keys I need and remove them from my keys to use in the ignition. It'll also allow me to hang a keyfob outside my pocket while the rest of my keys stay inside my pocket, so I can quickly unlock my car without having to hold the keyfob in my hand.

    +1 on s-biner microlocks! I use NiteIze s-biner micro locks specifically for car keys etc. Usually I use the variation that has a slide lock for each side of the 'S'. The side with the keys is locked; generally the other side is unlocked and hangs off of a belt loop. Works great!

    L'chaim!

    I have a few of the Cogent Industries (now, "MagnusX") hook-up clips. I have one on my truck remote and one on my remote for my wife's car. I just clip on the remote for whichever vehicle that I will be driving that day.

    On some of my pants, I have a coin pocket big enough to carry the remote fob. I put it in that pocket in the same orientation with the button out so that I can use the buttons by feel without removing the fob.
