flic.kr/p/sxjyLS | Trigger snap hooks | A couple of trigger snap hooks came in today's mail. I've used/cannabalized the same type before from old metal wallet chains to use with paracord projects, and they work out well enough, being especially nice to one-hand clip on/off a belt loop, compared with some other types of clips that can be fiddly to manage. These have a 40lb safe work load rating, which is a percentage of a higher (unknown in this model, not mentioned on the package) actual break limit, but these work out fine for keychain or wallet lanyard use. I've used them for paracord dog leashes for smaller pets, up to 20 -30 pound dogs. I'd use a stronger version of the clips for bigger dogs or when making a lanyard for someone that requested something stronger, and they do make them, but they cost a good bit more than these do. The last two times I went to Home Depot to buy these, I checked online first, to make sure they were in stock at the store closest to me, but by the time I got to the store, someone had bought all the ones they had, so I've wasted time and gas going to and from the store. This time I just bought these two off of ebay, which cost more than at the store, but I figure with the shipping figured in it comes close to being worth it.

flic.kr/p/soZY2W | More often than not edc keychain | The top photo is the 'lightweight' edc (everyday carry) keychain option, with paracord lanyard/fob and gaucho knot covered wooden bead, I chose to use yesterday before heading out to the blood mobile, thinking the nurses might have me step on the scale to ascertain my actual tonnage, and I just wanted to shave off an ounce or two here and there, also swapping out the Leatherman Juice Pro multitool that I might have carried in another pocket for a smaller Wenger Swiss Army Knife, and opted not to tote the leather coin pouch with $4 of loose change and have to pass up any inviting vending machines on my journey with regret. The lower photo is the loaded edc keyring I carry in my left front pocket with lanyard attached to a belt loop or sometimes a paracord attachment on the belt, more often than not, and having a larger waist-to-hip ratio than I should means gravity is not my friend in matters of the weighty 'Be Prepared' pocket contents of my britches and tactical belt, where I keep my cell phone in a pouch, and sometimes a multitool pouch, but suspenders do help. I like to keep a handkerchief/bandana in my left cargo pants pocket, and my overstuffed (George Costanza) wallet in my right cargo pocket. I don not like to keep anything at all in my back pockets, and with the bdu/cargo type that I prefer, they have buttons back there which are just aggravating to fiddle with, but necessary to keep from losing stuff, so I've just settled with the keep 'em empty route... wink emoticon I did recently renew my firearms license, so I have on occasion, over the last twenty-five years, carried various pistols and revolvers holstered in pockets/waistband or on my belt when out and about, and suspenders were really a 'must' when packing anything bigger than a .22, lol...
