AbstractAn attachment device for attaching, e.g., a key ring is disclosed wherein the device facilitates the reversible attachment of various connecting means, such a device having a shoulder connected to a post and such post having at least one aperture running therethrough for attachment of snap hooks, rings etc. Attachment to various desired articles, preferably belts, garments, etc. is accomplished by, e.g., securing the shoulder by adhesive means or through a riveting structure, thereby allowing a post having an aperture therethrough to extend outwardly for easy access by a user. In some embodiments, the attachment device can be loosely attached to a desired article, wherein an attachment of an item via the aperture is sufficient to secure the attachment device to the article.
