I thought there were past threads on this but my search didn't find any. I need a small pill container to carry on a keychain. I've seen a couple in pharmacies but they are either too big or very thin/cheaply made. Any good ones out there?

if you are not going to access it frequently, I found the one from Harbor Freight to be the correct size for my key chain, but the threads not very good...it just carries a couple of aspirin and ibuprofen and not opened frequently

I searched a couple of years ago for Christmas gifts, and found an offshore unit with a rounded bottom, good threads, and has been used daily for pocket carry... sorry, I don't remember the source, but most likely Amazon

For many years my key chain pill capsule has been & remains the Bison Designs Capsule, Large. I also wrap the capsule in ~18” of Gorilla Tape. In it I carry 4 ibuprophen tabs; 4 pseudoephedrine tabs.; 2 caffeine tabs; 2 generic Benadryl tabs, & 4 chewable 81mg. Aspirin tabs. This gives me some pain and allergy relief, a legal energy boost ( caffeine + pseudoephedrine,), basic anaphylactic treatment & heart attack minimization.

ebay has several choices. Remember to tape them shut and add a bit of fluff so the pills don't get pulverized

Big second vote for CountyComm.com I've ordered from them several times and they provide first rate items. Take the time to cruise their website, even if you are not in in the market for anything. Very interesting. Standard disclaimer, aside from several purchases, no relationship with them, BUT I'm a HAPPY customer of theirs.

Loc: Just wandering around.
I have been carrying a small pill container that I purchased at a truck stop long ago. It has an internal plastic vial in which I put several Nitroglycerin tablets and a few aspirins. I did this at the suggestion of my primary care person at my VA hospital. I have a heart condition and this could be very useful if I or another person has a heart attack.

I wondered if it would stay secure without tape and so far (over a year now) it has resided on my rather poorly treated key ring. It has a rubber O ring which seems to be holding up well.

I had another container in which I carried a $100 bill and that one started out being taped, but the tape became sticky in the Arizona heat so I put some heat shrink tubing around it. The heat shrink worked pretty well, but eventually it will expand again and become large enough to slip off the container. I then heat it again and it shrinks tight for awhile. I was not willing to experiment having that container un-secured by tape or heat shrink tubing.

We tried another container attached to a dogs collar with owner information inside. It lasted less than a week before all that remained was the top. It was not secured with either tape or heat shrink tubing.
