There are no rules, but I can show you how I use mine.Can you explain how to use the lanyards? I have the loop keychain but it's short, doesn't hang down.
Thank you for that great post. It gives me some things to think about.There are no rules, but I can show you how I use mine.
The Byzantine holds a house key and mailbox key. I take it when I'm going out for a walk and/or to get my mail. I slid the keys onto a ring and then just used the clip to hold them.
The canard holds my house key and car key. The house key is on its own ring and I put it through the top of the metal clip itself as I would never take it off while I was out. You can see the car key ring can be taken off the lanyard if I need to remove it for valet parking (a rarity), service at the dealer, etc.
The green one holds a car key that does nothing but open the doors. It hangs on a hook in the back entry of my house for no known reason. (When my mother was alive, I used it for the keys to her condo.)
You can see my basic key set wrapped around a handle of my bag. I loop it a couple of times and then drop the key end through the top of the loop to keep it on the handle. What I don't show is that I then drop the key part into the bag itself, so only the wrapped parts show on the handle.
I also keep a indigo lanyard that holds a mailbox key in my car in case I need it since my other mail key lanyard is usually in the house unless I go out walking.
I sometimes slip the lanyard around my neck and wear it instead of looping it on the handle of my bag.
It would interesting to me to see how others use theirs. Come on people, give me some new ideas!
(I had to edit this post about 6 times because of errors. Please ignore any others I missed. Thank you.)
I've never noticed it. It's so light that if it does touch my leg, I've never been aware of it! They sort of curl a bit from all my winding of them. When I don't wear one around my neck or around the handle on a bag, I loop it around a couple of times in a circle and stick it in my jacket pocket. Now, I'm wondering if it does hit my leg?! Tomorrow, I'm going to try to pay attention and see if it does.Thank you for that great post. It gives me some things to think about.
One more question - doesn't the strap hang too long when driving your car?
