it started with a knot to keep the cordage from going threw the keyhole after I tied the fancy "thing" around the key I didn't like the knot so I pulled the cordage back threw and made it even on each side

Step 5: Get Your S Biner Or Whatever Your Going To Be Using

take the cordage threw whatever it is your using and pull it to the length you want your key to be then decide witch knot you would like to use I just went with a cobra stitch

Step 6: Tie Your Knots

whatever knot your using should be able to go up the key slightly

if you want you can bring your knot back down I decided to and it makes the whole thing a bit more sturdy remember you can go as far as you'd like
