    This is my setup. I have everything attached to a mega dangler that keeps my keys attached to the opening of my pocket.

    Simple and cheap is well and good but ^ (or \/ ((down)) depending on your view) This is very nice.

    Mind dissecting that for us Ducati900?

    That Megadangler is very cool...how do you like it? Does the bottle opener really work well?

    Put your cell on your belt in an Otterbox (or any other) holster, and put your keys in your LF pocket. Just a thought.

    I used to use an Otterbox belt holster for my Blackberry, but switched to a Maxpedition holster and cut the flap off to make it a drop in holster.

    I have 2 of the large keys with plastic heads and 10 other keys of various length and type. In theory I could put 2 or 3 in a drawer, but the rest are needed and that isn't even including any toys. They are sharp enough to cause pocket problems and I don't have a great solution yet.

    I would like a professional looking solution if anyone has ideas. I suppose in theory I could put them into some kind of belt mounted leather pouch, but I don't want it too obvious.

    Suggesions?

    Thanks

    Harry

    Same here I hate a wad of keys in my pockets, my keys have a strap which has a ring at one end and a nite-ize carbiner at the other.
    I love it, it does not take a lot of room in the pocket when I want to carry there and I also can just simply hook it to my bgelt loop or whatever. It also comes in handy when I want to downsize to just one key on the fly, like when I boat or swim I can take a single car key off the ring and take the nite-ize carabiner off also and just use it to attach the single key to my swim trunks and leave the other keys in the vehicle with out a lot of hassle.

    Either clipped to the edge of the pants pockets or with a carabiner through a belt loop

    My first post, so go easy on me.
    I use a Maxpedition Keyper #1703 ($9.99 USD) on a SpecOps belt. (Nearly all of my pants/trousers are 5.11.) My bunch of keys is "suspended" in my RHS pocket and
    I find this quick and easy for on and off and don't have any wear and tear yet.

    I'm personally looking for a completely different key solution. I hate having my keys on a ring. I want them in some kind of wallet, or something that keeps them all aligned and uniform. I'd love to find SOME kind of solution that holds each item tightly, and then can be rotated out of a housing, like an SAK or something of the like. Then I'd just have one block of keys instead of multiple pointy objects floating about, poking in different directions.

    Oh, and having them hang off my pants is not an option. I work in a restaurant and having keys dangling off of a belt loop would get me in trouble.

    Sorry for the thread res, but googled Munroe Nanoceps and no love.

    Are they a mini pair of tweezers/forceps? How well do they work? I found that the "Uncle Bill's" military style doesn't work as great as advertised.
