Keychains 101 - Part 2: Types of Keychains July 22 2016

INTRODUCTION: WHAT TYPES OF KEYCHAINS DO WE CARRY?

In Keychains 101 - Part 1, we talked about the difference between versa back and slot back keychains. Now we're ready for the fun stuff!

Kaychains, Keychain Parts, Standard Button Making Parts and Supplies, Button Keychains,

We carry 7 different types of keychain closures, all of which are in the image above.

 *NOTE: Image shows C-Hook keychain style, which has been discontinued by the manufacturer.*

The Mini Split-Ring Keychain can be used with a Jump Ring, or a Plastic Tab. They are available for keychains made with 1", 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" button parts. It's basically just a wee little version of the standard Split-Ring Keychain.

The Split-Ring Keychain is super versatile and can be used with any size button keychain. The smaller button sizes often use a Mini-Split Ring because it's more proportional to the smaller button parts. Button Keychains that are 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 2-1/2", 3" and 3-1/2" in size use the Split-Ring along with a Tab and Slot Back.

The Zipper Pull is meant to be worn on a zipper, but can be used like a keychain, too. Zipper Pulls are most often used with a 1", 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" button and versa back.

The Loop Keychain is one of the fancier styles, but it's also really practical. Available for 1", 1-1/4", and 1-1/2" buttons, the Loop can be used with just a Versa Back (pictured above), or with a jump ring. (We recommend the jump ring for easier assembly and our kits do include the jump ring).

The Pull-Apart Keychain is unique because the part that attaches to the keys can be removed from the rest of the keychain with nothing more than a click :) Contact us at info@peoplepowerpress.org or give us a call at 1-866-996-1984 for details.

The Snap Hook Keychain closes with a hinged snap hook (sort of like those airtight swing top jars). This type of keychian is available for 1", 1-1/4", and 1-1/2" buttons and is used with a versa back. The Snap Hook is also compatible with 2" round buttons, as well as 2-1/2" X 3-1/2" rectangular buttons when used with Welded Up Eyes.

The Snake Keychain is essentially the same as a Snap Hook Keychain, but for use with larger buttons ranging in size from 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 2-1/2", 3", and 3-1/2". The Snake keychian is attached to a Slotted Back with a "Tab".

Last, but certainly not least, is The Link Keychain. This style has a really classic keychain look, and is comprised of a Split Ring on the end of a metal chain. For button keychains 1", 1-1/4", and 1-1/2" in size, the Link Keychain can be attached to a versa back with a jump ring. If you're using button parts 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 2-1/2", 3", or 3-1/2" in size, it attaches to a slot back via a Tab.
