When thinking of essential accessories for the day’s activities, most people think of things like a phone, laptop or briefcase. If we’re talking about big things, your automobile probably sits at the top of the list. But actually, there’s something else you probably use more than all of those things; your keys. From the moment you walk out of the home in the morning to when you get back, you’ve probably used half a dozen keys twice as many times at least. Since they’re such an important part of life, taking care of your keys has a number of benefits. Here are some ways to get the most out of your keys with one of Mark and Graham’s personalized men’s keychains.
Speaking practically, an attractive keychain saves you lots of time in the morning. If you’re trying to get to work as quickly as possible, it’s a big help to not have to search for your keys. Our long leather keychains stick out from their surroundings. Some even have a bright spot of color on the far end that serves two purposes: style and quick locating.
A plus of having multiple keychains is that it lets you stay organized. An immense amount of keys on the same ring – unless required by your type of work – makes it difficult to find the one you’re looking for. It takes a while to figure out which key is for your home’s front door, the door to your office and a supply room, for example, especially if they have a similar design. One solution is to divide your keys by location. Keep your most-used keys – generally one for your home or apartment, one for your office and one for your car – on the same ring.
Dedicate specific keychains to other places you go periodically. One ring might have the keys to your parents’ house, for example. Another contains everything you need at the workplace. A third could hold all of your house keys, included interior rooms. Some you use periodically, others hardly at all. So why carry them around all the time? A lightweight keychain is refreshing and liberating.
Many of our keychains are equipped with a clasp. How can that help? With a clasp, your keys stay wherever you want them. Instead of carrying multiple keychains in your pants pockets, it’s easy to clip the ones for your office to a pocket inside your work bag. Managers and supervisors often need to open lots of locked doors inside the workplace. There’s no need to dig into your pockets over and over repeatedly. Just clip the chain to a belt tab for quick access. Our high-quality clasps are trustworthy and durable.
Clipping keys in this way is also very comfortable when walking places or climbing in and out of your car. Keys that are bunched up in your pocket can poke or prod, which isn’t fun. Hanging keys from your belt or pocket keeps that from happening. That way you’ve got plenty of room for other things you want to carry, like an elegant wallet or phone. No keys, no scratches.
One of the main reasons to use a monogrammed keychain is that it’s incredibly sophisticated. As you pull up to the front door of an elite nightclub or restaurant, stepping out of your pristine car, it’s a nice touch as you pass your initialed leather keychain off to the valet. It inspires regard and recognition, especially if you’re pulling off a pair of personalized leather driving gloves at the same time.
If you use a parking service often – or lend your car to an excited teen or significant other from time to time – keep a spare set of keys on a valet ring. All you need on it are one or two normal or digital car keys. That makes them simple to toss to waiting hands and catch a flight or continue on with a romantic evening.
