Let me clarify that THIS INSTRUCTABLE DOES NOT INTENT TO TEACH HOW TO MAKE A "FAKE VICTORINOX KEYCHAIN", BUT A GENERIC KEYCHAIN THAT LOOKS LIKE THAT STYLE. DO NOT USE THIS INTRUCTABLE TO PRODUCE OR SELL ANYTHING AS A VICTORINOX PRODUCT! PLEASE RESPECT TRADEMARKS AND LAWS OK?
As in all my Instructables, I'm sorry about English language mistakes!
Step 1: What stuffs you need
- 01 large flat carabiner;
- 01 large key ring;
- 01 medium key ring;
- 03 opened iron rings;
- 01 standard carabiner;
- 01 meter (3.28 feet) chain.
You also need a plier to open and close the iron rings, but if you are so strong to do it with your hands, forget the pliers!
A NOTE FOR THE FLAT CARABINER: The flat carabiner is also called "table style" carabiner here in Brazil. I don't know how it is called outside here, but I include a pic of it here. Also, this model was choosed only because it is similar to the original model and anyone of your choice will work fine!
Step 2: Step One - Iron rings on large key ring
Step 3: Step Two: Key ring on the large carabiner
Step 4: Step Three: cuting the short chain
Step 5: Step Four: Attach the short chain to an iron ring
NOTE TO THIS STEP: IF YOUR CARABINER DOESN'T HAVE A MOVABLE TERMINATION THAT ALLOWS THE KEY RING "ROTATE" AND IF YOU WANT TO FOLLOW THE ORIGINAL MODEL, THE SHORT CHAIN MUST BE PLACED ON THE RIGHT SIDE.
Step 6: Step Five: Cut the longest chain
Step 7: Step Six: Place an iron ring on the end of the chain
Step 8: Step Seven: Attach the longest chain on the key ring
Step 9: Step Eight: Place the small carabiner on the short chain
Step 10: Step Nine and Finish: Place the key ring on the long chain
After you finish this step, you can say "Hooray!", because your keychain is ready to use!
Use the short chain with the carabiner to place your Swiss Army Knife and the long chain to place your keys. This long chain is designed for you can use your keys without take your keychain out of the belt. Yet, you can place your Swiss Army Knife in or out your pocket, as you prefer!
I have attached a pic of the original Victorinox model in order to compare the results. I'm sorry about the small pic, but it was the only one I've found!
I hope you enjoy this easy Instructable and I ask you make your comments of this job! If you make one of this with this Instructable, please place a pic if you can.
Best Regards for all!
