    I've since replaced the glow fob with the production version of the Veleno Quantum D2 flashlight. I found that being able to see my surroundings (like a doorknob/lock) was much more valuable than seeing my keys in the dark. The GitD material never lit up very bright for me since my keys stayed in my dark pocket all day. The whole point of a lightweight keychain is that it's comfortable to keep in the pocket all day. So by the time I got home, even if it was after dark, the fob wasn't charged at all. That's something to keep in mind if you're looking to get one. They do look cool, but mine didn't serve much function.

    I don't know the name of it (just that it has the Victorinox logo). I got it from a store, not online. If you google Victorinox belt clip it might crop up on ebay or the like.And yes, I like it a lot (even though I don't clip it to my pants all the time).Be warned though-the red embossed and enameled Victorinox logo eventually wears and comes off.This is my second one and for more than 1 year I've been walking with it without a logo.

    The upper right would be my simple keyring (car fob, car key and house key) but I can chose any combination.

    I haven't changed my keyring in over a week, it must be the final one.

    ...yeah... I've seen your thread... how flat does it hang, could it lay better... Does it jingle jangle too much... Do I need a lanyard... Are people really noticing my Mjolnir or is it too small?

    Ever evolve...

    It would hang nice (for so many items) but I carry it in my front pocket (I wear front pocket only gym shorts all year round) so there is no jingle but I think it would jingle if it was hanging outside your pants.
    The separate clips makes it hang nice and easy to remove each item.
    When I carry it in my hand, I carry it with my index finger in the key ring (like in the picture) and it hangs nice in my hand.
    It would hang great without the key fob.
    I think of a lanyard as something to grab to pull your keys or flashlight out with.
    The key fob acts as that, easy to grab and I don't need another item on my key ring.
    I got the hammer for me not other people and I notice it.
    It's like my good luck charm.
    I like how small it is, it doesn't take up any space or add any weight.
    One person did notice it and thought it was pretty cool.

    Ever evolve?
    I really think this it it.
    I looked into titanium split rings and clips to go with the ti key ring but I don't think that would reduce much weigh.
    I might use my titanium Veleno flashlight or remove my battery case but that's it.

    I really like the Kaijin dangler. I used one on my main key ring for several years now.
    Have you bent yours open? It looks very wide to me. The opening of mine is more narrow.
