They open doors, start cars and are some of the most important tools that we have --- without keys, we would not be able to get into different places or drive. Since they are a tool that is so widely used in our everyday world, they should be kept in a spot for safekeeping, where they can be easily found when needed. There are several types of key holders that are designed specifically for this purpose.

Key Ring

A key ring is a ring, usually made of metal, which is designed to hold keys. It is ideal for keeping all of the keys that you use the most --- house, car, office --- in an easy-to-reach spot so that you do not lose them. The holes on top of the key are inserted onto the metal ring. Key rings are often adorned by key chains, decorative accents specifically made for key rings. Key chains are made of a variety of items and an easy way to personalise your keys. A piece of stainless steel, for example, can be modelled into an object and inscribed with the owner's initials.

Wallet Key Holders

Your keys and wallet are two items that you usually will not leave home without. To ensure that you have these necessities, store your keys in a wallet key holder, which has pockets to hold your money and credit cards, as well as rings for your keys. They are usually bi- or tri-fold with a flap that covers the keys. Wallet key holders are typically made of leather or canvas and can easily be slipped into your back pocket or pocket book.

Wall Key Holder

Keep your keys in an easy-to-reach spot so that you can easily grab them when you are leaving the house. A wall key holder is a series of hooks that hang on a wall, with the main function being to hold your keys. The hooks may simply be attached to a piece of decorative wood or metal, or may be attached to a basket that can hold your mail. These hooks may also be attached to the bottom of chalk or dry erase board, giving you and your family a place to jot down quick notes for one another.
