    I have own the keybar for couple of years & its been great. I recently have a situation where I need to separate my set of keys for those that I need but do not use often.
    Instead of buying another keybar or something branded, I am more keen to do a cheap DIY that is simple but still works similarly.
    Any suggestions? I am more of a minimalist type of guy.

    Thanks

    What are your DIY capabilities? Can you do machining? leatherwork?

    I've been using a motorcycle chain link for years. It works great especially if you only have a few keys. It'll hold about 5 keys.

    Good question. basically next to none. Perhaps some kind of, I don’t know, low profile....screw/bolt to screw them together? But still look decent. Something like that.

    thanks. Have about 8 keys. Perhaps carn’t fit the amount of keys. Also not quite accessible to such stuff.
