    It couldn't be simpler. ;D

    Note: it's not mine, I just came across that site.
    Might not be practical for everyone, but it's still a neat idea.

    Will anyone care to post instructions on how to undo a rivet in a civilised manner?

    Drilling it is probably easiest and quickest.

    Well, what do you mean by "civilized"?

    The easiest way would be to clamp the keys to a piece of wood and drill through the rivet. I use a 3/32" bit to drill through a 1/8" rivet.

    Why not a machine screw and nut? No need for washers. Able to be disassembled. Expandability is limited only by length of screw. Use an acorn nut to cap the end of the screw.

    McMaster Carr has SS binding posts that are fairly priced. I use them on my sheaths instead of chicago screws because they are more robust.

    Add a couple O-rings that fit around the post between the key and screwhead to cushion any twisting and prevent the key from bending and you'd have a tough little setup.

    Cool idea.

    Patrick

    edited to add: Lowes and Home Depot both have aluminum binding posts that would work well.
