I only carry my Key Fob because all of my locks have a keypad, card or eyepass systems. I also got into lockpicking at a reasonably young age, so I always carry one of my lock pick sets. For people who are not the best with using a pick, you can also use a lockpick gun, however I like to do it the old fashioned way. The set I usually carry around is the Peterson Government Series 3 lockpick set. I also have a Peterson Elite 4 Bypass lockpick set as well as a Peterson Government 4B Elite Rubber lockpick set. They are always good fun to mess around with :wink:
Heres links to all of them:

I have a nice brushed aluminum plate w/ 6 hooks hanging on the wall downstairs, next to the light switch, which leads to the garage. Each vehicle has it's own key (I've got 4) with nothing more than the vehicle key itself, a house key (just in case), a fob (if it's seperate) and maybe something relatable to the vehicle (///M logo piston (two of these), "Remove before flight" lanyard for the bike. One hook is used for the mailbox, one hook sits blank. All small enough to fit into any pocket without causing issues (I don't wear my sisters tapered jeans or cowboy nut huggers, just to be clear for those who do) without issue.
I remember reading forum threads in my early BMW days about people having huge key rings and it'd actually wear out the lock cylinder (odd dinging like the key was in the ignition when it wasn't, sometimes the tumbler would break and the key would just spin continously without starting the car, etc) so I've always tried to keep it simple.
Caribiners or anything else hooked to your belt loop on your jeans = custodian. I didn't make the generalization, it's just generally who does it, so you're automatically guilty due to association. It looks tacky and reminds me of my dog because I can hear you everywhere you go
