Floatable keychains are a must-have accessory for anyone who works or spends time near water.

Boat keychains, as they are often called, are buoyant to ensure your keys stay afloat and are easy to retrieve if dropped in the water. Floating keychains keep stress at a minimum when relaxing on a beach or enjoying a fishing charter.

Additionally, floatable keychains offer vibrant colors and eye-catching designs so you can easily find them in an emergency.

Whether you’re an avid boater or a swimming pool manager, floating keychains are the perfect solution for keeping your keys safe and secure on the water.

This will be a short lesson: Floating keychains at Totally Promotional are infused with standard foam or polyurethane foam for strong buoyancy in the water. The keychain floats to the top of the water where it can easily be seen and retrieved. That’s really all there is to the science behind floatable keychains!

Many of our boat keychains include a beaded chain and/or round, metal ring attached to the buoyant piece. Simply slide your keys onto the metal ring for safe keeping. You can also add other small items to floating keychains such as wrist lanyards, small tools, sunscreen, wallets and hotel key cards with punch holes.

Most of our boat float keychains will keep their buoyancy with several keys and/or other small items attached. However, it’s wise to test your fully loaded floating keychain before you venture out by placing it in a deep cup or bowl filled with water.

Totally Promotional’s custom floating keychains are offered in bright colors to make them easy to spot in the water. You’ll also find that our wide color selection makes it effortless to find floating keychains that match your brand or company theme.
