can I have a chunkier version for my school keys? http://www.period1.com/rim/j1465.jpg

Sort of... http://keycaddy.com/
I've seen them that take special keys with no "head"? that make the unit much more compact. Can't find a link at the moment. [half, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       Nice illustration, there. Photomosaic-esque.

       Category formed criteria for posting "idea" - I like half's link to the keycaddy, as the design resembles a feeler guage, and lends it's elf well to pro+-totype-duction. I wonder to my elf if an old, wide, feeler-gauge wouldn't mind being used for this porpoise. Porpoise is twofold, one to stop keys from digging into leg, or rattling around in general, as the car I and a couple of other 'bakers drive is/are Saab/s, which have ignition in center floormount behind gearshift lever, rather than on side of steering column. Rattle, rattle. Most importantly, to have a compact, useful keepsake of 'bakerness.

       Potential concern: increased possibility of breaking key off in locks/ignition?
waugsqueke, Mar 09 2003

       Make this battery operated and you could have a built in lock de-icer.(+)   

       Lovely. But one flaw: how many of these would be comfiscated at the airport?

       No knife
thumbwax, Mar 10 2003

       Yes, and that's not a problem with current keyrings at all.
waugsqueke, Mar 10 2003

       So are we, UB. That's why we like having you around so much.   

       Just kidding of course. I made the same assumption about keyrings that you did.
beauxeault, Mar 11 2003

       // I have many key-rings, with one key on them. If you manage your keys correctly, then its not a problem. However, with this there is no way to seperate the keys from the Swiss Army Knife section, and so there is no way of avoiding the "eggs in one basket" situation. //   

       That is, I would suspect, not how most people use keyrings. But to address your concerns, just do the same thing. Have one halfbakeyring for each key.
