yer i like the metal as well, i might get one. would be cool if there was an inflatable one though as i always drop my keys in the water .the cork balled ones take the whole bloody pocket up would be a good idea to have an inflatable one mmmmmm.

Have you seen the hydrostatic key fobs that self-inflate in water (like a life jacket)?

Lymington Yacht haven were giving away really useful floating foam keyfobs last year - flat, unlike the awkward cork ball ones.

This one isn't hydrostatic, but it has a powder inside that dissolves/reacts to make it inflate.

I can't remember what weight of keys they will surface with.

It's kind of like a SCUBA divers SMB.

Delivery is expensive though :-(

Ive got one of those but its not very well made and fell apart. I stuck it back together with tape so I think the chances of it actually working if I dropped my keys in the water are quite low.
