The“ invention relates to key receptacles
wherein keys are disposed within a casing and
are projected therefrom when desired for use
' and has for its object to provide a device of this

open at‘ its ends and pivotallyponnected keys

engaging member for projecting either key

hasqa chamber 2 extending longitudinally there
through and terminating in open ends 3, through
1which eitherof the keys ll or 5 is adapted to be
extended when it is desired for use. The casing 5
side walls 6 terminate in shoulders ‘I spaced from
the ends of the casing at opposite sides thereof,
and therefore it will be seen that when either key

key is drawn into the casing, it will pivot from_
when the key is in a look.

This particular an- "
gular position is desirable where it is not safe
to have the casing sticking outwardly, for in
stancerwhere it is in the ignition lock of an
automobile. This angular position also allows

key, particularly where the lock is hard to work.
