Introduction: The Swiss Army Key Organizer

Picture of The Swiss Army Key Organizer

Hello fellas, this time (despite the quality of my pics) I've created a key organizer inspired by the famous multitool knife.

So, why would you want to make this thing?

1) Because you want to feel "more swiss"

2) Because you always risk to lose your keys (here I am)

3) Because you're a well organized person/maker

4) Because yes

5) Because you love my Instructables ( excellent motivation!! :-P )


- Due to the dimensions and the weight that this item can reach, it might be used as a weapon. So I'm not responsible, in any case, for any damage that people might cause, to other people or things, using it. I created this guide to instructional purpose only. So, please, use your hands to create and not to hurt, or worse, destroy. ALWAYS. -

Step 1: Step 1: Parts and Tools

Just like in the previous project (here), even this time you'll need just few things as well, and you can easily find them at your local hardware store:

- a lot of chocolate (WHY NOT?!?!)

- 2 metal pending plates

- 2 flat washers

- 2 self-locking nuts

- 2 truss-head screws

- rubber washers as needed

- a screwdriver

* dimensions aren't intentionally reported, 'cause they depend on the size and the quantity of your keys - e.g. as you can see mines are big and numerous*

Step 2: Step 2: Assemble

This step is very simple, even if I find it a bit annoying.

I did like this:

screw - flat washer - metal pending plate - rubber washer - key - rubber washer- key (and so on) - multiple rubber washers to make room for the long key - metal pending plate - self-locking nut

you do this again on the other side, but remember: in the end the two sides gotta be specular, especially if you have long keys, or they won't have room enough.

Step 3: Step 3: You've Been "swiss-ized"!!

That's it, bravo!! Now go and show it to your friends, or better, go straight to Switzerland and let people admire your creation!!

It can be bad thing to post photos of your keys online, the nefarious type can have a field day, just saying...

Well my friend, as you can imagine, Internet is plenty of pics about luxury cars keys, but it doesn't necessarily mean that they can be stolen by anyone. So thanks for your suggestion but I'm quite comfortable with that

That's cool... I used to be paid to be paranoid by a big multi national; old habits stick.

No, the idea is that they could be able to get a copy of your physical key made, and hence get into your house.

I'd love this! Then your keys wouldn't stab you through your pocket. Good idea :)

Of course!! And if you want to personalize it, you can add a leather strap. This can be useful also in order to avoid any kind of scratches which may be caused by the metal (but I personally use a sunglasses' sack, it works fine either and can be a stylish choice)
