I found this key ring http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:245764 very useful for some time, but wanted to free my pockets. So I designed one specifically for my work keys and made a magnetic belt clip for it.

One side is sized for regular door keys and the other fits cabinets keys. Rectangular recess is meant to add a small ID and useful to check orientation when clipping it in.

It looks a bit chubby, but is small enough so its not in the way even when sitting. Make a nice schlack! sound when the magnets mate.

It uses 4 8x3 mm neodymium magnets and 3 screws and nuts (sorry I don't know exact sizes, they're printer leftovers)

I made one of these, thanks for sharing the design!

Bolts and nuts should probably be M3s. 16mm fits about 4 keys thick.

I'm discovering that I really don't have enough keys to justify this! I suppose that shorter screws would fix the problem.

I'm very happy its finding users. Post your make, I would love to see the result, I made the holder for my 5 keys thick, so it fits flush when clipped in
