I’ve lost more than my fair share of keys while running. Even though I always make sure to buy shorts and pants with pockets, I’ve found that unless the pockets have a zipper closure, they’re not 100 percent reliable.

So instead of replacing all my gear, I wanted to see if there were ways to get creative with key storage. Here are the best tricks the Internet has to offer.
