One of my first prints! Printed nicely in black PLA, even though I know instructions don't recommend PLA. Feels like the PLA will outlast the cheap M3 nuts/bolts I used, honestly.

Will probably print another in wood-filled PLA and stain/seal it. Love it. It's going in my daily carry, with a little paracord lanyard/keyring I made for easy grabbing out of the pocket and for non-standard keyfobs and such.

I found that using a longer-than-needed M3 bolt then cutting/sanding it from the other side makes for a sturdier build, especially when using cheap M3 bolts I had kicking around. Didn't do the knurled version since I didn't have any knurls kicking around. Not going to bother with any Loktite or superglue because I want to be able to remove my keys if I need them.

Also another tip for other people printing it, put your super small keys like padlock keys etc in the middle, makes it easier to swing them out with friction from the other keys, especially if the tip doesn't reach the cut-out.
