Jul 13 2009Why Didn't I Think Of That?: Split-Ring-Key


Sometimes it's the simplest things that are best. Like a bacon sandwich on a crisp morning or tricking a dinosaur into thinking another meteor is coming so you can bed it that night. And then there's this keyring. Which is both key AND keyring. What will they think of next?!?

Carry your keys on your other key. Real working key blank. Key blank can be cut by any key cutter to fit KW1 or SC1 keyways.

You can get a 2-pack for $7, which, according to my calculations, makes a 4-pack about $18. What? I NEVER LEARNED THE MATHS, OKAY? But you know what -- YOU DON'T NEED ALGEOMETRY TO KNOW HOW TO BLOG! Or any skills really. Just a drinking problem.

Split Ring Key [amronexperimental]

Thanks to Scott, who actually invented the thing. Nice, now how about a door that is both door AND knob. Oh I'm sorry, did I just blow everybody's minds?

for some reason i think this would be hard to unlock a door with?

@ 2

Yeah... I totally agree, the broad side of the key necessary for applying that critical (albeit minuscule) amount of torque to the lock is... well, absent. This isn't very practical.

Wow, brutefags and firstards... I would totatly key your car with this thing, and by car i mean your throat and by key I knife

wow, did GW just delete a Brutefag post who didn't bring anything to the conversation? nice goings!

wow, do i know how to start a post with anything other than wow?


The brutefag apocolypse has begun! Die brutefag die!

also, I need this key.

Nice idea. But a key on all four sides and have look like a ninja star would be super!

They need to make the swiss army knife that has something like 6 blank keys that fold into it so you can get them all cut to your home, work, mailbox, secret safe, girlfriends diary etc. then just fold them all into the knife to eliminate bulky, clunky, awkward, full of stupid souvenir, keychains. Everything would be compact into a small knife shape....

on second thought ...in like 5 years keys will be a thing of the past anyway, everything will be controlled by thumb print scanners and computer key pads.

... and in ten years we will just be able to teleport into rooms therefore eliminating keys and entry devices all together.



Get four of those baby's, one on each finger.....close your fist and what do you get!?

A pretty dam awesome key knuckle duster..........

*Take that purse snatcher......oh, my key's stuck in your eye*


Its just like that scene in NBD where Wolverine held up his fist and keys emerged from 'tween his knuckles.

And then then his fingers turned into penises.

Logan Penis Hands?

Nice idea... nice...

I assume you've all read Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary. That was really Logan.

I like the idea, but it will make drunkenly unlocking the door a little more difficult...

nicely done, the price deems fair

agrees with @9 >:)

He he he, next they should make a flying burrito :P

jesus christ this is sooo obvious. why did it take soo long?

i don't think this'll work.

how do you put a key on it? the actual key part will stop you putting anything else on the ring.

A Key that is a keyring. Same people that brought you the vibrator that is in fact also, a vag.

Poor Billy Mays won't be there to yell at me that I need to buy one of these anymore. Sad.

Ever break a key in a tough lock? I think this will happen way more often with this type of key. Doesn't look durable at all.

Not really practical, or even really necessary. Is it that much more work to get a ring? Also, the great thing about key rings is you can selectively take a key off when you need to loan it to someone or something. If you have to take all of your other keys off, and then be without a key ring all day because you had to loan that key to someone, you're inconveniencing yourself far more than the little bit of extra pocket space not needing an extra ring is worth.

Nice idea, but what if ALL of your keys are also keyrings. Then I guess that would defunk the main idea.

Yo dog! I put some key in your key so you can key while you key!

I have to desagree with some of you. I do have one of that that I invented 7 years ago. My car kee broke and I soldered an iron ring to it so I could attatch to my kee older easier. It proved to be resistent when well solded.
