Introduction: Simple Key Organiser

Create a simple key organiser from a small D Shackle. If you're like me and have loads of keys hanging off your keychain, this is a simple solution to tidy up the mess.

Step 1: What You Need

All you need to make up your simple key organiser is a small D Shackle, some Loctite and a pair of pilers. You should be able to pickup these items at any good hardware store. Just make sure when you select a D Shackle, that the pin of the D Shackle has a diameter smaller than the hole in the key/s.

Step 2: How to Make

Then remove the keys you want to use and feed them on the D Shackle. If you hold a few keys together and line them up against D Shackle, you can check if they fit in nicely. If they appear to be a little loose, simply squash the D Shackle a little with a pair of pilers, until you get it right. Then add a couple of drops of Loctite to the thread, to ensure it doesn't come apart and you're good to go.

The pin on the D-shackle I found was perfect for most of my keys, but my mail key had a hole that was just a bit too small. I was able to find a binding post that fit in my D shackle and was just a bit too short to completely close, so the mail key fits on the small part where the screw is showing on the binding post.

It works great so far and my keys are no longer taking up as much space and jingling wherever I go!

I only had 3 keys but worked well. Another solution is to slightly file the key so it will fit through the bolt. Thanks!
