Introduction: Zip Tie Chuck Key Holder
I needed a chuck holder for my corded drill. The cheap ones get bad reviews, or suggested repairs with Zip Ties. So I stopped and thought about it, and felt I could make one from zip ties from scratch. I've never made an Instructible before, and I did not immediately think of zip ties myself, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Step 1: What You Will Need
1) A chuck key
2) 4 sturdy zip ties.
3) A drill cord you want to attach the chuck key too.
Step 2: Loosely Attache Two Zip Ties to the Arms of the Chuck Key
As pictured, loop a pair of ties on either arm.
Then loop one tie to link the two across the top.
I probably could have used one tie across the arm, but they are pretty stiff, and pffft... so i used 3 instead of one...
Step 3: Attach It to the Power Cord of the Drill With Another Tie
Just attach that last top loop to the power drill of the cord.
I snugged them up a bit, but ultimately left it a bit loose to move.
Trim off the excess zip tie ends.
You should have a chuck key holder that lasts a long long time.
