Having two or three keys for your house is not a problem, but having a bunch of them can pose a problem. Imagine, having keys for your large household, relatives house, work and they look the same.

How is it possible to distinguish between them?

It is very simple.

b)    Use plastic rings witch fit different shapes.

c)     A professional key cutter from your neighborhood hardware store can help you. Cutting distinctive notches on the key handles can make your life easier.

e)     A simpler and easier way is to use a squeeze activated key-ring flashlight.

f)      Using a valet-style key ring can be helpful. It gives you the possibility to keep the keys organized in small groups such as, home, in-laws’ house, work.
