Tried a hardware store? I can find carabiners, pulleys, etc easy, but I live in a fishing town. Wort case scenario you would need to spend a little time with some tools to flatten/drill the bottom.

Thanks for the help. I tell you this has been the best key ring I've ever had.

I'll look a little more. I only paid $1.99 for mine but inflation has been big lately idk.
If I find them around $2 I'm getting a couple this time.

My wife bought me my key ring before we where married, 25+ years ago, so I can understand the attachment.
Can you fix it? Grind off the rivit, replace the inards, and re-rivit it?
Or by a gross and be set for life.

Yeppie thank you!!!

It's been great but I somehow caught it on a loose nail and that finished it off. Bent the bottom so its not worth trying to fix.

Lol but it has to hold 30lbs of keys jk
