The plastic key things. I tried address label, it wore off real quick


These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

I don't. Scratch your name into it with something.

Attach something to it that makes it easily identifiable. Most fibs have a keychain attachment.

I don't see the need. Also, what happens if you go to sell the car?

Silver Sharpie?

Also curious about why the need for a name on it?


I use the overseas manual to choose my viscosity.

Clean with alcohol and apply your address label. Cover that with clear gorilla tape.
Everything at same temp (indoors) … Oh, wash hands first
That will last a few months … do it again

I use belt loop key clips and hang them in mud room when home.
Worst place for keys is a pocket on jeans.

If found on the street do you want them to know your name? If mixing up two at home then wife & husband would be safe.

What other keys are on the keychain?

Is this so you can get them back if lost?

If that’s the case, Tile tracker or something along that line.

Micro chip it. Same product used in pets.

OTW put your Name and phone # on a "mini label" in the battery compartment.

or the fob with phone number and address on it is the classic option.

Me? I don't mark mine; Now I'm going to loose it. Thanks a lot!

Haven't needed to (yet). I'd probably just add a key ring and some sort of tag if I needed to.

both Key Rings have a "Dog Tag" style tag, with my Name and Cell Phone number on it.

What do you mean by fob? The keyless entry remotes? Do you have two cars where they look identical? Otherwise, why put your name on it? You could use those id tags they put on your key ring when you drop your car off for service. Or dap a spot of touch up paint on it.

I Gorilla glued a dog tag from Walmart on my money clip. Phone number only. Guess the same thing would work on my key ring. Have key finders on both, the kind that have an RF work fine if I lose it at home (louder beep), the more sophisticated ones didn't work that great when I tried them about three years ago.

I don't. What's the reason you want to mark it with your name?
