TODAY’S PATENT – KEY CLIP
The KEY CLIP was invented by Chang June Song (Richmond, British Columbia) on the 23rd of June 1998 bearing patent number US5768924A.
The present invention relates to keys and particularly to a device that helps from preventing key loss and quick identification. This device helps in securing the key and there enables the key to be easily and securely placed in a wallet or purse. According to this invention, one embodiment is a clip that fits over a top portion of the key and allows the key to securely attach inside the purse or wallet. The clip includes a section that fits well into the key insert to secure the clip to the key and prevent the clip from rotating. Thus, the current invention prevents the key from being detached or lost from the clipped or clamped object. The clip, in some embodiments, even includes an opening to expose a hole that is usually within the key to receive a key ring or key peg. Thereby, this invention does not limit the key to get secured into a single location and can be placed on a key ring or fob. Also, this clip is formed of a single piece of metal and requires no hardware to secure it to the key and accommodates a variety of key sizes and shapes and hence reducing complexities. This invention is thereby a handy one.
