If you’ve bemoaned the lack of a key retainer or clip on your Red Oxx bag, the folks from Billings, Montana have good news for you: they’ve added a simple, durable, retrofittable key clip to their line.
Called the Pin Mount Key Clip, the item features customary Red Oxx quality (read: built like tank!) and can be added to any Red Oxx bag.
With my Air Boss, I chose to mount the clip high on the compression straps in the compartment toward the rear of the bag:
The key clip is secured via, what else?, a threaded pin:
Here’s a side view of it installed on my Air Boss:
If this location doesn’t work out, I can of course re-locate it somewhere else on the bag. Doing so will leave a tiny pinhole in the former mounting surface, so Red Oxx cautions: ” For best results, mount the key clip to a mesh pocket, an interior flat pocket or interior webbing. ”
Of course, the Pin Mount Key Clip can be installed on items other than Red Oxx bags as well: belts, pants, work coats, backpacks, and so forth.
The Pin Mount Key Clip is $9. Note: the Red Oxx site is oriented toward shipping bags, so the minimum UPS shipping charge, were to order only the Key Clip, isn’t for the faint of heart. (It’s $7.99) I suggest you call their Customer Service Department to see if they could work something out for you, if you are ordering just this item. Call them at 1-888-RED-OXXX (1-888-733-6999), or just visit the Red Oxx website: Red Oxx
