Not a "Key Strap", but a "O-ring Stap"?
No idea if you have already evaluated it long time ago, for me it's a new thing at least. :-)
The Key Strap, but instead of two carabiners one of them is an o-ring.
Think it might be quite good for "extending" the o-ring in the bags, and also makes it a bit
better than clipping two carabiners into each other (in case of the pouches etc).
Good or bad idea?
I like the idea of extending the straps ... would it not be easier for TB to make a longer strap??
BUt I do like the idea. I find the longer key strap just a tad too short to be effective for my uses. A short and long key strap bound together works just right.
Longer ones would also be nice, with an o-ring option of course. :-)
My mother used three 8" Key Straps for her RFID ticket, in an clear organizer pouch.
(I gave her a 16" to make it less bulky)
The "o-ring strap" can be used for extending and also to clip on other stuff that might be better to clip directly into an o-ring.
Carabiner clipping into a carabiner is not optimal, so I think an o-ring would be better.
I see your point. I would definately use the O-ring for items that are more permanent than a set of keys.
Of course, this would be a TB O-ring so I wonder if it'll be more than just a circular ring of metal .....
The Shoulder Strap for the Side Effect fits the bill, if an O ring was added to the end of one of the clips, you get an "O Ring Long Strap".
I was thinking of the same keystrap! We have 2 Handle Loops.2 Key Strap options wouldn't be difficult to sew.I'd buy a few to go with my Pilot order
No reason you couldn't cut off one hook and thread a stainless steel split ring (keyring) on there in its place.
Here is a really good solution from a previous post: http://www.tombihn.com/forums/custom...plit-ring.html
True, but I have a difficult time "damaging" the original designs. I just don't think I could do it!

A great suggestion! Why not do BOTH? Sew an O-ring AND the clip together at each end (slightly larger fabric loop to secure both).
This would give people more flexibility in daisy-chaining items AND would also provide some options in length, since the O-rings are about 1" shorter than the clips.
Price of the straps would only increase slightly due to the low cost of the O-rings plus a tad bit more cloth and sewing...
Alternately, Tom could approach the guys who manufacture his clips and ask them to make a clip that has the O-ring built into its swivel base, if he doesn't want to change the sewing patterns.
