Introduction: Geek Keychain


Hi!, this is my first Instructable! Going to make a keychain with computer keys. It's simple, and can be completed in less than 15 minutes. Let there.
You need:
-The ring of a keychain
-Links (from a fine chain, for example)
-Computer keys (please, you don't remove the keys to your new computer =P)
-Barbecue skewer (or similar)
-Lighter
-Pliers

Sorry for my bad English, I'm Spanish!

Step 1: Make Holes in the Keys

First, heat the barbecue skewer with a lighter (about 10-15 seconds). Then, make a hole in the side of the key, pushing strong but slowly. Remove the skewer barbecue fast to avoid sticking. You can remove the remains of plastic with pliers.

Step 2: Unite the Keys

Open the link with the help of pliers. Now tuck it through the holes of two consecutive keys and then close it with pliers.Repeat this step until you unite all keys.


Leaves some links after the last piece (if you want) and locks the ring of a keychain in the last link.

Step 3: Ready!

Now you can rest assured not to lose your keys (both computer and home =P) and not stop presume to be geek.

If you have any problem write me.

Thanks for your time, I hope you have enjoyed!

    On the right hand side, there should be a drop down bar that says something along the lines of: "Remove from contests"

    Your English is easily understandable- it's better than some English-speaking people on this site because you take the time to use punctuation :)

    I'd like to see this combined with Flash drive in a Key- a couple of bootable drives and several gigs of storage attached to your keys? Now that's geek cred!

    Totally agree. It's interesting how many people say "Sorry for my bad English, I'm Spanish/French/German/Chinese/Russian/from Mars." They then proceed to type more fluently than many English-speakers.
