Key Holder

This article describes key holders for carrying and storing keys. The key holder of Fig. 1 is used for carrying metric keys, while the key holder of Fig. 2 is used to carry English measure keys.

The device which may take a plurality of different shapes, for example rectangular, is fabricated from molded polyurethane material. A plurality of holes are fabricated in the polyurethane material.

The keys (not shown) are fitted in the holes and can be easily carried or stored by a workman. Although the holes may have various shapes, for example, round and/or hexagonal, the holes are characterized in that their diameter is less than the diameter of the keys which are fitted in them. Due to the inherent characteristics of the polyurethane material, when the keys are fitted in the holes, the material is in tension and holds the keys snugly so that if the holder is dropped the keys will not scatter. However, when the keys are removed, the material returns to its original form without any deformity.
