    I have the Maratac Ti too, also the Maratac SS. Excellent constant brightness on Eneloop AAA battery. And they still look okay, even after years of keychain wear and scratches. After a while i grew tried of the twisty operation (typically two-handed), it takes some efforts (not much, but some) to operate the twist mechanism. For years i've been carrying the K18 SS on my keychain and keep the latest iteration as a collection piece:

    I have the same key organizer!! I put a key flash drive in mine. Definitely consolidates things.

    Yeah I really love the KeyGrip from Raven Workshop. I never regretted that purchase even if a bit pricey. You should post a pic of yours too!

    I thought hard about one of those Handgrey KIN clips. What are your impressions? If you have ever used any other pocket clips, how does it compare?

    I have only been using it for the past week+ so my experience is limited and I'm still getting used to it. That said, I really like it so far.

    My only other suspension clips/hooks I have used is an Atwood Hangman and P-7 clips. I like this one the best. The spring tension of the clip is perfect and easy to use. It can easily be pulled apart slightly with your finger (even one-handed), but has enough tension not to come unhooked by itself. By comparison, I always felt the Hangman had too much tension to be easily used. I use the P-7 differently, more clipped to the pocket than to a belt loop, so can't really compare to the others.

    Besides that, the KIN is perfectly machined and flawlessly finished, just like all of Handgrey's stuff (this is my 5th piece). Aesthetically, I find the KIN really pleasing to look at. The machined slots cut in certain places give it an interesting look and is forcing me to consider getting the other version just to see which I like better. Considering his past projects, the KIN is his simplest design with no moving parts, but the embellishments make it the most interesting looking in my opinion.

    I highly recommend it if you value quality over cost and find his designs interesting. But it would depend on your specific use and needs.

    I like that! Much nicer than buying the others and having to add "extender kits". Just go buy longer screws. What is used for the nut on the other end? Or is the other plate threaded?

    Here is my current keychain setup. It's a bit bulkier than it used to be, but the Keybar Ti Hook keeps it pretty well-organized in the pocket.

    [​IMG]

    Main Items (clockwise from 9:00):
    Keybar Ti Hook:
    the best pocket clip hanger I have used so far
    Rofis TC1 Flashlight: touch-switch, 3-mode, rechargeable keychain light
    Keyport Slide 2.0: not the latest version, but lightweight and holding RFID chips for two auto keys
    clip-on USB drive: it says "HP' on it, but it's a cheap one off of Amazon
    RFID entry fob on Keport ParaPull: an annoying, but necessary, item
    Remote Entry Fob: I need to try par this down like @ThirstyTurtle did with his (pic), but I haven't tried yet

    Connecting Hardware:
    Cogent Industries Hook-Up Clips:
    the best QD spring clips I have ever seen, each a work or art
    Split Rings: 14mm titanium split rings from eBay - highly recommended, but not the 14mm wire split rings
    Blue Ring: titanium "circle carabiner" from eBay - not recommended

    Really liking this setup lately. I bought an aftermarket car key case to mod my car remote and key.

    The leatherman style and a good flashlight are a must for me. I use the scissors on the style all the time, have pulled out splinters with the tweezers, opened beers, and the screwdriver is the perfect size for opening battery doors on kids toys.

    Everything is on a klecker carabiner which makes it super easy to remove things. The whole set up rides on a belt loop. It doesn’t dangle too low and surprisingly there is little to no noise from the other keys.

    Everything is also TSA approved. I can take it through any security checkpoint and never have to remove items.

    Sorry buddy, nope.
    Except for avitars, if a site has a difficult, computerish pic method, I just post.
    Get minor grief for it but don't have the patience for a 29 character URL, only to get the message 'file too large'......

    I tried to fix it for you, but I cannot make it work. I think it may just be an issue with Google. The images apparently display in Chrome, but nowhere else.
