    Just curious what type of keychain everyone has with their Prius fob. I haven't come up with a good one yet, so mine still has the little white laminated tab from the dealer that has all my car/body/color info.:rolleyes:

    Little black vinyl job with a gold Toyota logo. I don't want a big heavy keychain...

    None at all. I hate keychains, and I have finally found the perfect solution in the tiny black block we call the smart key.

    The Prius fob *is* the keychain. It's attached to my home front door key

    Both my TDI and Prius have the fob + house key. I use a single key with my motorcycles to keep from scratching the triple clamps. Why would I want to add a keychain?

    If I still had a car that didn't have a fob I would use my Coast mini LED flashlight as a keychain.

    carabiner.. it's hooked onto one of the belt straps. I used to have the PRIUS keychain attached but it was a bit clusmy.

    Just the fob... and the front door house key... and all those little fobs from places that you need a fob, like PetCo, the library, Fred Meyer, Top Foods...

    Dearest Hubster has several rings hanging off his, with an array of keys

    Probably a fake one since it's rather light.

    Ooh good question. I made a keychain out of my very old intel 486 SX processor. Was from my first PC. Basically I just sanded off the pinouts and drilled a hole in it. Yeah I'm a geek, but I suspect most folks here are. :-p

    A Hybrid Synergy Drive keychain and a Hymotion Keychain. The rest of my keys get a seprate keychain and pocket.

    My other keychain has a mini Glock 17, Intel 2.5GHz Celeron CPU, 30 pin SIM, and a bad stick of 128MB PC100 ram.

    A simple ring with a Kroger barcode card which I use to get 10c/gallon discount at the store's gas station (and occasionally to buy grocery).

    Mine's an Intel Pentium microprocessor encased in plastic, which I picked up at Stanford when my son graduated in 1996. Thought it was kinda cute at the time.
    Dated now though.

    Ditto. I am always forgetting to take it out of my pocket when I go to open my door, too.

    Prius fob, house key, several little plastic doohickies to get discounts & a fob from the "Notorious Sock Knitters World Domination Tour 2009" - the membership was a present from my kids who know that knitting socks is my other hobby (besides Fiona and my grandchildren).
    My daughter has a rubber chicken (about 4" long) and a "rape whistle" she received during orientation week at college back in 1988 (maybe she should get a new whistle - not sure that one even works) attached to her keys.
