What abou a squirt S4? His tools can be accessed without opening the tool, and you've got the quality of a Leatherman.

Bee: If you add a second Photon and switch out the LM Micra for a Squirt S4 and different car manufacturer, you'd have my set-up. I find the micro carabineer is smaller and more versatile than a key ring. The set is a little bulky for dress pants pockets but fine for others.

Some people say that the weight is too much for vehicle ignition systems but I have'nt had any problems. [knock on wood].

A cool feature of Hondas (or at least mine) is that once you lock it, if you press unlock, but don't open a door, it locks itself back after like 90 seconds. So accidental unlocks don't have much of an effect.

Btw, I think the keychain is only too big once you're actually removing keys from it to make it smaller.

umm yea i dont carry around knives and big multitools on lights on me all the time. people get worried when ya do. and i kinda cant carry them around class and in stores and banks and stuff, cause ill prob get arrested.lol
i know you have to be prepared but i let my body take care of me,i take care of it it takes care of me. and i know you should always be prepared, but sometimes u cant and i trust in God to get me out of a sticky situation or anything.

but i do have a keychain carabiner with some stuff on itfor survial when im on road trips or hiking/camping.
Peace out! <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Are vintage threads like fine wine?

I have Doug's e-gear light on my key ring but otherwise just have a few keys on it.

Read somewhere that too heavy a key ring can screw up the ignition switch.

A large key ring in fact can damage your car's ignition. I carry 2 keys, a small lite and a leatherman mini and that's it. The rest is in my pockets.
