Plenty of those at The High tide line in my area...just find a prevailing wind Storm beach and you'll find em.
Or....If the OP pm's me I have a few Ribcraft key ring floats....I'll drop one in the post.

I always carry a couple of these in the SIB's kit bag...

Ski Float 136mm - Tow Ropes - Discount Marine Chandlery and Sailing Equipment. Bargain Boat Spares and Clothing

They are useful if for some reason you have something slightly heavier than keys you don't want to sink.

For example one is enough to float my waterproof but not buoyant hand held Garmin.

Interestingly, it looks like Amazon has just about as much faith in my ability to look after keys as I do!

Self inflating keyring ordered - but boating off Anglesey I hope it doesn't mind the rain.....

If anyone sees me passing by with a big red sticky out thing at around groin height, it's my keyring, honest.

I'd seen those but don't want to risk the possibility of it not going off! Especially when so many amazon reviews say that theirs didn't work!
