Hey guys, I made an effort to use the search function but I'm not quite finding what I need. If I missed it, smack me and point me in that direction. Here's my problem--how to get my EDC items off of their carrying device so I can easily use them. I have a simplistic 2-stage system that I intend to keep as bare-bones as I can: 1. My keys, a photon freedom, and a micro widgy on a regular split ring with an engraved tag/fob that was a wedding gift. This is working fine as is. 2. I'm pocket carrying a aircraft mechanic's keyring from CountyComm with my other goodies: whistle, mini multi tool, split pea lighter, aaa flashlight, spyderco bug, and an eyeglass screwdriver set (you know, the skinny thing that unscrews into 3 different sections.) Here's the problem--to use the stuff in #2 I'm taking it out of my pocket, unscrewing the keyring, removing the item, being careful not to spill everything else, re-screwing the keyring or setting it down carefully somewhere, using the darn item, then reversing the process. I know--why unscrew it at all? Personal preference. I just prefer to use the item by itself rather than while it's attached to everything else and all bulky in my hand. With some items it doesn't matter, like the whistle. With others though, it really needs to be separate to use it efficiently. I suppose I'll need a different arrangement to quick deploy and release the items--in other words, connect each item to its own...thing...and then connect each thing to the keyring. Of course that'll increase the weight and jingle-factor which I'd like to avoid, but I'm out of ideas. What do other people do, mini carabiners, those valet-style keyrings, etc?
