    How do you like those two little lights? I've been looking at one of their other models.

    I own 3 of these little lights and i am very happy with them. the size is right for a keychain light , build quality is fine for the price.
    what i dont like are the unprotected accu cells, they are easy to kill.

    I was thinking about the E05 Stainless Steel for my keychain. How's it holding up compared to the aluminum lights?

    Thanks

    I think it is holding up great, that being said I am not uber picky about my gear while I think it still looks great there are marks, dings from everything else nearby but it is still shiny, not dulled and of course works perfectly fine.

    I dunno, I use my small selection often enough. I also personally like the jingling it makes. There's something about it that's comforting.

    Your keys, phone and wallet are the only things you are sure to have when away from home. And one could argue that you may not have your phone and wallet. Knowing this, it makes sense to have some form of EDC type tools on your keys.

    IMO, everyone should have a flashlight and a Victorinox classic or similar on their key chains at the least. If not as your primary tools, as back up.

    Hey guys. I'm a mechanic in a factory and have to carry a lot of keys for machines, doors, lockouts, etc. I've been using one of the Maxpedition keypers, but I've decided I like to wear suspenders to work instead of being choked to death by a belt. So, I'm looking for something to carry on a belt loop. I'm liking the looks of the "fish hook" type danglers. I understand most of them are designed to hook your keys over the top of a pocket, but are any of them designed to or would work well hanging from a belt loop? I don't care much for carabiners and would like for it to be something small enough to keep me from getting snagged when I'm climbing in and out of machines to work on them. I'm open to suggestions. And if you recommend something, please tell me where to find it online. Thanks!

    I have both the Griffin Pocket Tool and the Pangea Designs Pickpocket, and I use them both in-pocket and on belt loops. They're both good at both, but unless you want the tools on the Griffin, the PP is better as a pure dangler. The PP is super easy to get on and off belt loops for me.

    I also have the Karas Kustoms Ti Keychain. It's not bad, but the opening and the shape makes it a bit difficult on non-thin pants, like jeans or cords. It does ok on a belt loop, but even then it takes more effort than the Griffin or PP. That may sound picky, but when we're talking about something you put on and take off over and over it matters. I use it now on my key to my wife's car, so that on the weekend I can just swap out with my own car key on the PP, but I can't recommend it over either the Griffin or PP at all. I'm not sure it's available anymore either.

    I use the Hooky Keychain to carry my keys and is very easy to take on and of the belt loop.

    It is not smart or pretty and it beats my Cogent Hangkey every time (Sorry Magnus). It costs 10USD in aluminum and 14USD in brass, so it is not very expensive.[​IMG]

    Today I'm taking the train to work from my girlfriends house, so the key to my own house and car is not included as it normally is

    Kinda a pocket dump pic but I just majorly upgraded my keychain and I love it! The griffin is amazing and the nite ize has already been extremely useful too. The Nitecore tube is bright as hell! It's surprising. [​IMG]
