This DIY Seat Belt Key Holder Is For The Ultimate Car Fan

This is the ultimate way to store your car keys. Eamon Walsh breathes new life into some old car parts. For this project, he uses a seat belt buckle and some wood. Here’s how it’s made.

First, he cuts the old seat belt buckle from the car. He traces the buckle on wood. Then cuts the wood to fit the buckle. The buckle is glued into place on the wood. Clamps hold the two together while the glue dries. Then the wood is glued together. The wood is cut to size. He engraves the word “keys” onto the wood. Then, the edges are rounded. The wood is sanded down. “Keys” is painted in black. The wood is sanded to remove the black paint. The rest of the wood is stained. 

The clip is cut down to a minimal size. A hole is drilled for a key ring. Finally, it’s attached to the keys.

Why would I do so much work, if I could just hang the keys.

Slow-wipe says:

So much work for no reason. Just buy a frigging tape on hook

Aykut says:

This guy has too much time on his hands.. Its a cool little home project, but its nothing more than something to show off to others about – because people who are organized dont lose their keys anyway & people who arent would forget to use this

Omar Gutierrez says:

What about just using really strong magnets? Just throw the keys at the base and they stick. Then, when you’re in a hurry, you abruptly pull them off—no clicking.

Completely and utterly pointless.
Not to mention it’s terribly ugly and probably riddled with germs.
