Great Gift
This is a great gift. It is inexpensive, useful and personal since you can have it engraved. I bought one for myself months ago and loved it. With Christmas around the corner, I ordered 20 more all personalized for friends and family. [...] The tube only fits one bill. Folding the bill to fit is a little tricky but worth it. That secret stash on my keyring has saved me a couple of times. Practical and fun gift!

Best Thing EVER
I love this keychain! I know that if I have my keys, I have emergency cash. I have bought one for everyone in my family old enough to carry keys, and they all love it. Plus, I feel good knowing that they'll never be stranded in an emergency.

Great for older kids driving.
Good to keep money hidden where nobody would expect it. Good for kids driving, it they get in a jam and need emergency money.

Definite gift for new grads
I have purchased about 30 of these over the past 15 years. They are intended for EMERGENCY money, not daily use. Yes, they are difficult to open, but that may allow for cash to be on the keychain when needed! I usually buy these with NO engraving. The original devices had very clear instructions for how to fold the bill (only one) to get it into the case.

Love it!!
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!

Keeper-20 years plus
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.
April 21, 2013
I read the reviews on this key chain money holder, but I still chose to get it because I had a bullet styled one but it came unscrewed & the bullet part fell off somewhere! So I liked the fact that this one you had to actually remove it from the ring in order to add or remove money.

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 purchased these for my teenage sons and engraved their cell phone numbers. If they loose their keys hopefully, the finder will call that number.
­- Take the key ring off
­- Slide out the smaller inside tube
­- Fold your bill in half lengthwise
­- Place the bill on a hard surface.
­- Make the first fold about 1/8th inch, crease it
­- Continue folding the bill creasing it as you make each fold.
­- When completely rolled, insert the bill into the smaller, inside tube that you removed after you took off the key ring.
­- Slip that smaller tube back into the larger tube. Put the closed end of the small tube in first. The bill should be at the top end where you will now reattach the key ring.

When you need to use the bill, take the key ring off, turn the tube upside down. The weight of the smaller, inside tube will carry the bill right out.

Yes, the key ring only holds one bill as it is not meant to be a wallet.

A Great Buy!
I received a gold colored one as a present 15 years ago and had it for about 10 years. LOVED IT! So when I lost one of the pieces, I had to purchase another one. It holds my emergency cash very well. Yes it requires folding the dollar lengthwise and then rolling it up. Once that's done if you place it in the short end, you can place it in the long tube and put it on the key chain. I have needed my emergency 20 on several occasions and its nice to know its there. LOVE IT and will be buying 5 more to give as gifts for Christmas.

Have used these as gifts for twenty years. Used to hide a $20 bill now it takes $100 for a tank of gas.
Elizabeth E on Nov 18, 2016
Because it is small, thin and takes up very little room in your pants pocket. Thank you!

Is it OK to put a number instead of name? (In case I loose keys.)
Paul B on Oct 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am sure a number will do, I put names on mine, with money inside & added them on my Christmas tree. My grandchildren had a lot of fun looking for them.
how you fit a bill inside when the length of the money holder is just 2.25 inches?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. You need to fold and roll the bill. We hope this information will be of help to you.
