QUESTION: How do you apply heat to the key band?

ANSWER:  There are many options. Boiling water applies the heat evenly to the band and is not hot enough to melt the band.  But you can use any heat source: a hair dryer, heat gun, stove top, etc.  You will need to be careful to not apply too much heat or the band could melt.

QUESTION:  Can I trim the band?

Answer:  Yes, key bands can be cut prior to heating to fit a certain shape better, avoid covering the key hole on a smaller key, or to create a different style/shape.

QUESTION:  Can you write on the band with any marker?

ANSWER:  Yes, but we recommend a ballpoint pen. It is the best we have found for writing on plastic.
