I have turned my house key into a mini Balisong.

The handles and pivot pins are made out of layers of regular card stock and the latch is magnetic.

just in case you care, you just showed your house key to the world. you might want to obscure that next time. but it's a great project!
CreativLiMade (author)  codongolev4 years ago
Thanks! but i was just wondering why is it a bad idea to show my house key?
yeah, what he said... some guy invented a key that's also a keyring (genius!) and then posted the prototype online... then he had to change his locks, because he posted his house key on his international blog.

its a good thing my address and everything else isn't on here then
Any half-decent key-maker can duplicate a key from a photo or scan. Just to let you know =)
CreativLiMade (author)  shadowofblood4 years ago
Thanks for the answer. I guess its ok as long as who ever doesn't know where I live. :D
Do you happen to live in San Diego?
CreativLiMade (author)  shadowofblood4 years ago
lol nope
Lol, k. I know another robomaster1 who lives in SD.

Well, does anyone else want to know how to make this?
ive been wonting to make one but ive never found some1 showing how to make the haddles attach to the key so if u could post a instructable that would be great
drill 2 holes in your key and put a small metal pin in it then just jb weld the pin to eaither side of your handles
CreativLiMade (author)  sparktech4 years ago
i guess i would do that but i don't have any of the tools for that. For me is was easier to work with paper
now thats a dumb question...something this cool?          .....that answer should be obvious...F@*# yeah!!! this is a sweet idea!
 Yes i would like to know how to make this also
yeah that would be awesome to learn how to make it.
yeah it look like a fun project
Absolutely, that key is the coolest MF on the block inside that.
Yes, I rather do.

I know all you people out there like my house key balisong (Instructable is still coming), but I think you are all gonna like my next house key design even more.
 what will your next design be/when do you think it might be out?
CreativLiMade (author)  Frag4 years ago
I can give you a hint on what my next design is.... its spring loaded, but i'm not sure if i'm going to make an instructable on how to make it.
WANT! either way, +1.

 Well, I sorry I didn't get this instructable out this Christmas due to the fact that I have school to deal with. Which gives me little or no time to work on any of my projects.

I have gotten the chance to use the key for a while though so I can tell you what it is like using it.

First, it is very fun to have and show to your friends. The only bad thing about this is that you have to be careful when your turning your key in the key hole.

There will be more information about the experience with this in the instructable. Hopefully I can give it to you guys soon, but school and mid terms come first. 


 Not gonna lie, this thing is a beast. Too bad I wasn't the first to come up with this. But I got a few questions. 

1) What exactly do you mean by card stock?
2) Does this work as a normal butterfly knife? Can you still do tricks?
3) Nice Job! It's a good looking mofo

CreativLiMade (author)  Buck Futter4 years ago
1) Card stock is a paper that is thicker and more durable than normal writing or printing paper. 2) It opens and close like the actual thing. I'm not sure if you can do tricks(never really made an attempted), but I think it is to do some tricks. 3)thankyou =)
you gonna put up how you made this?

3RR0R4045 years ago
