History of Key Chains
Key rings, like the jailer’s ring of keys, date back as far as the invention of the lock. Locks were handmade and very expensive. Because of this, there were very few of them.
It wasn’t until Linus Yale invented the cylinder lock (1848) and mass-produced inexpensive locks that keys were carried by the general population. One of the earliest souvenir keychains dates back to the World’s Fair in Chicago, 1893.
In the 1920’s Henry Ford mass-produced the automobile, and shortly there after the first car was stolen. This trend forced Ford to use a Yale style locking mechanism to secure his product from people just driving away in them. Key chains soon became a popular way to advertise.
