    Hey All- I'm posting to give a heads up that I'll be doing a Give-A-Way here in my sub forum some time in the next week or two. I've been making carry stuff since 2010 and am excited about this new piece. I'm calling it the UltraLink. It's a belt mounted quick release...visit my sub-forum to learn more bout it :) Link in my sig line.

    I carry keys from the belt loop on my pants using a slide lock S-biner from Nite Ize. Works great.

    L'chaim!

    I really like those brass sailor snaps for belt loop carry as well. Especially when paired with a bunch of brass gear. I even had a spare set of keys all made from brass blanks to go on that set up.

    I guess I’ve used a carabiner & belt loop the longest of anything I’ve tried. For a time recently I used a key wallet from Duluth. I loved the leather carry but it was a pain getting them out all the time and in the end I went back to carabiner carry...that is, until I made my first UltraLink ;).

    By key wallet do you mean something like this:

    I didn't see anything like this on the Duluth site just now so I looked on Amazon. When I was growing up we used things like this; not all were zipped close by the basic idea was the same. Some were not nearly as robust as this one; getting keys into them were indeed a PIA!

    L'chaim!

    I use a Hero's Pride quick-release for belt-carry. One of the best I've found. Solid ballistic-cloth, and heavy-duty snaps.

    Heres a shot of the integral belt clip :) It doesn't work with a pinch point, rather it's that spur keeps it from slipping off.

    This is the "Standard" version. The difference is that this one comes with 7075T61 core and clip, as opposed to the 100% titanium unit.
