LEGO Brick Keyrings: Simple Genius

by Paul Strauss

If you’re always losing track of your keys, it’s nice to have a place to hang them up when you come and go from the house. I’ve got a couple of little hooks on the wall, but I’m digging this idea much more.

Designer Felix Grauer came up with the idea of a simple keyring with a LEGO-compatible brick on it. To hang your keys up, simply snap the brick onto a wall-mounted LEGO panel, and you’re set. Make sure to leave them hanging over by one position to make them easy to remove. Not only can you use the blocks to color-code individual keyrings, but you can snap them together to combine rings.

I love simple, smart ideas like this that just plain work. Now all I need is some LEGO bricks with holes drilled in the side of them, and I’ll be all set. I suppose for now, I’ll just have to settle for some of these.

    The designer didn’t ‘come up’ with this idea, LEGO used to sell this and ran out of stock. The mystery is why they didn’t continue to make them, but I personally tried to get one, and couldn’t.

    You don’t have to drill any holes in LEGO bricks. They make them with holes already in them.

    They also come in longer and shorter lengths, as well as plates with the holes punched vertically through them.
