Pelican “key ring”

Does anyone have a preferred “key ring” that hooks onto the lifeline pelican clasp to open it? My wife was trying to add something to it and resulted in it coming off.

Do you mean the flat type of hook with a sliding ring? Or the C Sherman Johnson Co style with a latching pin, spring, and heavy split ring (used as a pulling ring)?

I've used Ronstan key rings, at 1 inch they are big enough not to need a "tag" and stronger than standard.

Most any dive shop will sell quality 316 stainless steel split rings of various diameters (22 mm, 30 mm etc). Used in dive gear for attaching gear to harness, etc.

Use your favourite search engine to search for "scuba diving stainless steel split ring" if you have no dive shop nearby.

Fawcetts sells the stainless split rings as well, I had the same thing happen to me.

Thanks all. The ring to open the lever clasp on the closure is what I needed.
