In the case of the Keysmart for instance, you can also purchase the Quick Disconnect to help you disconnect the car keys and Keysmart organizer.
Will all keys be compatible?
The good news is that most keys are compatible with these key organizers, as long as the key hole is more than four mm in its diameter, the length a maximum of 67mm, and the profile is flat. In addition, it does not matter what shape the key takes.

If it is too tight, then orienting the keys will become an awkward process, which means you cannot deploy the keys effectively.
