Key Chain!

OMG!

I have way too many keys! Counting AS, TV and various locks I need to have access to about 15 keys!

I have outgrown my split ring....

What's your solution for full timing when we have to have at least 8-10 keys on us at all times?

Thanks,

Rounder44

I have five keys total. To eliminate a lot of keys I use a the BOLT Locks for receiver pin, padlocks, cable locks etc. These locks can be keyed (by you) to your TV ignition key. They have some tailgate locks and recently added an off-vehicle coupler lock. There is also a stainless steel shutter lock, but I don't know if would replace the outside lockers on the Airstream.

Same as at the house...all keys hung on a rack, with one human always having a set of keys to the house.

Hi

There are various categories of keys. The key to the door is something you need pretty much all the time. The key to the fresh water intake or the outside bins ... maybe not so much. (= mostly I only use these keys at set up / tear down). Sort the rest by need and hang up the ones that are seldom used. Store duplicates away someplace, in case they get lost.

The key to the house and the garage at home (while you are on the road), lock up in a storage box / glove compartment and/or the safe (if your trailer has one). Equally, when you are at home, lock up / hang up the trailer keys and don't carry them around.

Indeed, if you shop around, you may find various split ring attachment gizmos. That way you can attach various sets if that is your preferred way to go. By far the cheapest (but maybe not the most easy) is just to directly interlink the split rings.

Bob

+1 for Bolt locks. Well made and they work every time.

We have a system of multiple key chains. Arranged on a series of hooks in order of frequency of use; from left to right

1 set of AS keys in my truck other with wife. (this came to point when wife closed the AS door hard enough that the lock engaged)

2 Vehicle key fab's
1 truck
1 house
1 mailbox
1 gate
1 storage shield
1 vintage 1970 P-38 military can opener
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P-38_can_opener )

this is a reduction from the 20+ construction keys I once carried.

I just ordered a Nite Ize S-Biner KeyRack off eBay last night.

Haven't gotten it yet, so I can't speak about how well it works. I do have several of their S-Biners in different sizes and have found them handy. I'm giving it a try.
