    Key Strap

    Secure your keys to your bag; or, tether Organizer Pouches or other accessories.

    A Key Strap is a strip of webbing or fabric with plastic snaphooks or a plastic snaphook and O-ring at each end. An 8” Key Strap in Black is included in most of our larger bags. That was, for many, the gateway to a world of organization via Key Straps and Organizer Pouches. All the members of the Key Strap family are intended to make locating things in your bag easier and more instinctive. Pulling out a small item or pouch tethered to a strap is easier than rooting around aimlessly in the depths of your pack; you can also rest assured that anything hooked to a strap is much less likely to fall out or otherwise be left behind. A variety of Key Straps with different attachments and in different colors can become an irreplaceable part of your travel or everyday carry kit. And oh yeah—they're still a great way to keep track of your keys.

    Key Strap, Snaphook/Snaphook
    One end of the Key Strap clips to an O-ring and the other clips to your keys, pocket watch, knife, multiuse tool, pedometer, or work or school ID. Using a Key Strap to keep track of these small items ensures you won't waste your valuable time reaching down to — and digging around in — the bottom of your bag to find them. Instead, simply reach in, and give the Key Strap a tug to retrieve your item. Cool thing to do with the Key Strap, Snaphooks: clip our 3D Clear Organizer Cube to the Key Strap, creating a TSA 3-1-1 liquids bag on a tether — ensuring that, though you've removed the 3D Clear Organizer Cube from your bag, it remains attached so you won't lose the Cube when going through the airport security line.

    Key Strap, Snaphook/O-Ring
    A small variation on our classic Key Strap, which has snaphooks on both ends. The Key Strap, Snaphook/O-Ring has—you guessed it—a snaphook on one end and an O-ring on the other. It’s something you’ve long asked for and we’ve finally made it real. Its obvious use is as an extension to tether Organizer Pouches to your bag, but there are many other possibilities for this handy strap. For instance, you can attach several Organizer Pouches to the O-ring end, making it easy to locate related sets of items. You can daisy chain a few straps together to create one that's as long as you need, without adding extra bulk. And of course, the O-ring provides a handy loop to attach non-TOM BIHN accessories or tools to a fixed point in your bag. You've probably come up with a number of other ways to use it in the time you've read this paragraph.

    Key Straps are available in a variety of colors. Key Straps in colors are a great way to use color coding as an organizational technique; e.g., always attach your keys to your Key Strap in Coyote and you'll know exactly which Key Strap to yank on to retrieve them. If you choose a bag with a more muted interior lining, like Steel, bright Key Straps in Iberian and Wasabi will be more visible.
