The handles and pivot pins are made out of layers of regular card stock and the latch is magnetic.

    yeah, what he said... some guy invented a key that's also a keyring (genius!) and then posted the prototype online... then he had to change his locks, because he posted his house key on his international blog.

    ive been wonting to make one but ive never found some1 showing how to make the haddles attach to the key so if u could post a instructable that would be great

    drill 2 holes in your key and put a small metal pin in it then just jb weld the pin to eaither side of your handles
