Quick On/Off Snap Loop (Alternative to Key Rings)
Make your own simple & versatile snap loops for anything that needs to attached to something and removed often. The picture below shows the snaps on hard plastic but you can use any kind of fabric such as leather, grosgrain ribbon, elastic bands, etc. I like to put bells on my dogs' collars whenever we go to the park so I can always hear them but don't want the dogs wearing them at home, and with these snap loops, they're easy and quick to put on and take off. Make a loop for each key so that it's easy to remove a specific key from your key ring, such as when you bring your car to the shop and have to leave the car key with them. The possibilities are endless!
