Drill Chuck Key
i have a noobtastic question - is there a brilliant solution to keep my drill chuck key attached to my drill? the one i have came with a holder gizmo but its pretty worthless and my google fu isnt very strong today and i am not finding anything useful.

just tape it to the cord.

or try any Good Hdw store. NOT the big Box stores.
They don't stock anything that doesn't sell a jillion a week.

Also can be used for that always easy to lose pin spanner for the angle grrinder.

Like Bob said, just tape or wire tie it to the cord.

When we have to tape them, we tape them close to the plug. That way you have to unplug the drill to change bits. A good safety feature for our environment.

I used to attach mine to the cord using a heavy duty rubber band. Now that I have keyless chucks it is irrelevant, but the rubber band worked surprisingly well.
