Have you ever broken a fingernail or injured yourself trying to open a split key ring?
Some of them are so sturdy you can hardly slide a key onto them.
But here’s a simple everyday item that can easily open this type of key ring:
All you need is a regular staple remover (available nearly anywhere you can buy office supplies).
Just sink its fangs between the main part of the key ring and one of the ends – and the end spreads open easily so you can slide your key (or a decorative dangle) onto the ring.
You can quickly and painlessly load several keys, using this nifty little tool to hold the key ring open!
It’s also handy for removing keys from the ring – like when you need to leave your car key with the mechanic.
And it’s a time saver (and finger saver) when you’re making loads of decorated key rings to sell! 🙂
