Need to mount a 5/32 hex wrench onto my wife's keychain. Anyone have any ideas/done this before?
Go buy an "pocketknife style " SAE hex wrench set, then take it apart...
I took one of mine apart recently and noticed that they'd all fit well on a keychain/keyring, if I had a need to carry one or two hex keys everywhere.
Do you have a link by any chance?
There are several brands available, including:
Bondhus GorillaGrip® Fold Up Sets
Bondus Metal Fold Up Sets
and Sears Craftsman.
If you want to go cheapo, look in Harbor Freight, expensive, hit the Snap-On truck. somewhere in between, try Sears/Lowes/Home Despot...
The specific model I disassembled was from Harbor Freight.
For ease of disassembly, look for visible hex-key or screw caps on each side.
Small, but metric.
Or http://www.docallensversatool.com/index.htm and find the right hex bit, and glue it in?
Thanks for all the help. Will hit up Harbour Freight tonight.
I've also seen a set of wrenches set up for split ring carry. Each wrench has a small spring wound around one end that lets it be key chain carried.
Here's a link I found...Wrench Set
My security keys have a hex key bent into an eyelet at one end. Its for locking/unlocking panic bars on fire doors. Basically looks like it could have been removed from that 'gorilla grip' tool that Parnass mentioned.
Should be easy to find check your local locksmith shops. I have a Hexit tool you just glue it in and your good to go ( hex shaft with a knob on the end ). Also my key set has one on it.
I took a metric and standard folding set of hexes and put them on a split ring only sorting them by size. Since I am one of the people who tries sockets on bolts rather than analysing the actual correct size, this was a good solution to have everything on one ring. My mechanic saw it and swiped it from me because it was handy - so I'll make another.
Point is, that's a great way to get the one hex on a key ring if that is all that you need.
If using smaller sized hex wrenches, look for one marked Chrome Vanadium. The cheap stuff will round off in a hurry.
