Key problem......

Recommended Posts

Howdy,

Changing keys  from ring to ring is clumsy and slow.

A friend showed me how to make it easy.

Use a staple remover

Best.

I don't understand the problem. Unless it's the people that try to use the edge of the key to lift up the top of the ring so they can get the key on it?

 

I use a pocket knife blade. The only problem with that is it tends to dull the edge. But an eighth inch flat tip screwdriver works really really well, and I can usually find a screwdriver easier than I can find a staple remover.

How so?  Don't pry with the knife, slide it in like a wedge.   The thickness of the spine is enough to open it up enough to get a key started

That looks  a lot like clumsiness.  Who do you think you are, ME?

 

I was dressing the edges on my kitchen knives and decided to do the same for one of my pocket knives.  Used my thumb to see if it is sharp enough yet.

 

IT IS!! :o

 

After all these years you would think I had learned better than that.
