How do I open this key ring?

Hi Paula,

I bought this key ring and it’s beautiful, but how do you open it to put on keys? Don’t mean to be dumb about this, but don’t want to break it.

Thanks, Phyllis


Hi Phyllis,
You are not dumb at all. It is one of those things that is easy once you know how it works. But I’m like you, I would rather understand something than try to force it open.
Flip the key ring over and hold the key fob (in this case your gorgeous turquoise stone) in one hand and the key ring clip in the other. Note that the arrow points to the clip latch that must clear the keeper in order to open.  The key ring clip has a hump on the side with the clip which makes it somewhat easier for you to squeeze that side inward to release the latch. It does take a bit of strength.  Once you feel and see that the latch has cleared the keeper, pull slightly backward.
