I want to attach a flat little multitool, a little earplug canister, and a little LED light to my keyring, but their bulk means the keyring won't lie relatively flattish.
So I put these bulkier items on small 1cm-diameter split keyrings, and slip those onto the keyring. This works great! The bulky stuff is a little farther away from the bulky parts of regular keys, so the key pile lies relatively flat. But after a while, the thin, fine-gauge wires that comprise those little keyrings come unraveled, snag on clothes and bags, and eventually drop what they're holding.
What are some alternatives?
- I haven't had great luck with the threaded, locking twisted wire keyrings. They're too big for what I'm looking for. (Haven't seen them smaller than 1.25" diameter)
- I don't like attaching a bunch of slightly larger keyrings to a carabiner. Because I just end up leaving stuff behind. I want the big bulky, single keyring, with a bunch of little things attached.
