difficult to use

Comments about Key Chain Money Holder:
you can fold the bill in half length wise and it inserts easily enough, however, having to remove the key ring to get it open and closed is extemely hard to do. It is very stiff and hard on your fingernails. At least the difficulty of getting to the money will insure that it is only used for an emergency.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

Don't know how you could fit money in this item. You have to be good at origami--won't purchase from this company again Certainly can't give this as a gift
This product is awful. Can't get the money in without a lot of work and then hard to get it back out. Hard to see the engraving. Lets just say I will not be purchasing anything from this company again.
Money doesn't fit inside

I was attracted to this because it looked both pretty AND pratical; however, it was hard to open and the money does not fit inside of it. Very disappointed.

I like the idea of this item, but it's not very practical. You have to take the case completely off the ring to use it and it's too hard to align the holes to put it back together. I do like the uniquness of it and I am using it just as a name item on my key ring. Not really useful to hold money!!

I bought gold ones for my husband and myself about 15 years ago and although the engraving is long gone, the key chains are still one of the best purchases I've ever made. They are extremely durable! To be able to hide money in such a slim keychain that cannot accidentally come open is genious. All other money holders I've seen have a screw top that can come unscrewed at any time. I love this item so much that I just bought 18 of them for Christmas presents for all of my family members. This is definately a 10-star item! The only con is the engraving. I bought silver ones this time and the engraving is extremely difficult to read as it is not deep enough and I am sure will wear off very fast. BUT, I did not purchase these for the engraving. I purchased them because I think they are the best emergency money holding keychains I've ever seen. My nephews will even be able to hook them to their back packs. The engraving makes a good first impression but don't purchase these for the engraving...purchase them for the quality, durability, and piece of mind you will get knowing that you and your loved ones have a secure way to stash emergency money. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this slimline money holding keychain!! I can't endorse it enough!

I've had one on my key chain for close to 20 years and the emergency cash has saved me over and over. Examples: out at night and need funds to catch a cab home, forgot wallet at home and had money for the train and lunch. I have given these as gifts for years and will continue to do so. Love them.
Even nicer than I thought they would be!

We ordered these as gifts for friends and family. As another reviewer brilliantly suggested, we had their phone numbers engraved on the case instead of names. That way, if the keys are lost, someone will hopefully call.The quality (we ordered silver-toned) looks great. It's designed in such a way that it's not obvious that the cylinder is hollow.It wasn't easy but I managed to stuff two $20 bills in the cylinder. I folded them together lengthwise in thirds then rolled them as tight as possible. Getting them out required multiple taps on a hard surface, but they eventually came out. Because there's a small hole in the bottom of the cylinder (another great design feature), one could use a paperclip or small nail to push the bills up and out instead of repeatedly tapping the cylinder.The cylinder will easily hold one folded bill, so it's great to have for those times when you've left your wallet at home!

I Guess You Have To Be SMART To Use It.

Do not listen to the people who are too stupid to figure out this simple, easy to use life saver. I really do not understand why there are so many people who cannot figure out how to use this wonderfully designed item. I have been searching for these, to give as gifts, cause my friends keep trying to get mine away from me. In 2000 I bought 2 of these called "Cash In Case" from a travel store, for my trip to Scotland. One to use for a U.S. $50, and one to use for a British 50 pound note. I figured my bases would be covered either way. I paid [$] each for them. And they have been worth every penny of that. They only came in chrome color, with a brass plug. I have been using them constantly for over 12 years. They have never NOT been on my keychain. Ever. I fold the bill in half, ending up with a really skinny bill. Fold it in half again, the other way. Then roll the bill tightly. I place the folded end of the rolled bill into the brass plug. Sometimes I have to twist it back and forth a bit, to get it to go in. Older bills are softer, and easier for beginners to insert. I prefer the crisp new ones, myself. Assemble the holder, and it is ready to go. I have never had a bill not fit. I have never had a bill get stuck in the outer tube, and require me "poking it out". I have no idea why one reviewer would think they needed to put a hole into the bills. You cannot even imagine how many times these have saved my behind. I can have the cash out of it in less time than most women can find their wallet at the bottom of their purse. I can get a bill loaded into it in under ONE MINUTE. It's just not that hard folks. Trust me. I have 12 years of use backing me up.
