That guy who had to pay me to get his keys in 116' of water last year sure wishes he'd had one of those.

I've seen them in several marine stores around here.

You know I was thinking I need to get something for the "Scuba Kat" but don't want one of those hokey float key rings. This is so cool. Does it come with a warranty if it does not work.

You know the only thing wrong with it.. is that as soon as it goes in the water it deploys.. That wouldn't really work for diving would it.. It would for someone on a boat.. but not a diver.. I will need to keep looking for the perfect way for me not to loose my keys..

I can just imagine the customer comments:

"My keys were found the next spring off the coast of Hong Kong."

or

"I spilled my drink on my lap, and it, well... and then my date just ran off."

Why don't you put them inside your dry suit? That is what I do.

I have more problems than that.. That means I actually have to remember to take them out of the car before I lock it..

Plus the bladder requires that the keys be out of the drysuit so I can unlock the car and get out of my gear fast...

Before I got a car with an external key pad I carried a spare key on a small retractor on D ring. Quick and easy to unlock, and it was always there.
