    Default I'm Too Stoopid to Operate a Keyring - Help!

    SWMBO is a manager for Tiffany & Co, and yesterday they had an event in the store. One of the Tiffany master engravers was in the store and doing work on site. SWMBO was a sweetheart and got me a beautiful keyring like this one:

    She had it engraved with my initials and it looks great. The trouble is, I can't seem to figure out the secret to putting my keys on it! I unscrew the ball end and go to put on my keys, but a couple of my keys are too small to fit. The ring is too thick to go through the hole in the key.

    Am I missing something here? It there a trick?

    drill a bigger hole in the keys or bring everything to a locksmith and see if he has different type key blanks

    That's good. I would just go different keys made. It's pretty cheap to do.

    I shudder to think what other situations that advice could be applied to.

    This thread is fraught with innuendo...

    Well, all the keys fit but one. The oddball is the Scion key that doubles as the keyless clicker. I can get a dupe made, but it won't be the same.

    Maybe I can get a Hello Kitty or something.

    Get a small split ring, put the key on that, then that on the keyring.

    It's all good, even when it's not.

    Yup, a small ring can join the key to the bigger ring no problem.

    The obvious fault is with the key, and not the Tiffany keyring. The only acceptable solution is to sell your car.

    I second the idea of a second, smaller ring joining to the first.
