BD15's Ranger Key Display

Hey all, I've been wanting to make a ranger key display since I bought my first keys last year and now I finally have a finished shelf!

I'm extremely happy with it!

The keys slide in from the sides and fit snug between the moulds with no way to fall off. The shelf fits 250 ranger keys! So, all the teams, kamen rider ones and bonus ones that will be released should all fit =D

Parts List (All from Menards / minus cases):

250 - Protective cases -http://www.rangerboard.com/showthrea...29#post4051929

1 - 1/2" x 4' x 4' White Board - $11.99

2 - .75" x 15' Double sided Manufacturing Tape @ $2.98 each - $5.96
(Try to find .375" x 15' instead)

6 - 8' White panel mould @ $2.28 each - $13.68

Total parts cost after tax(7%) = $33.84

Tools Needed:

- Utility Knife / Blade

- Rubbing alcohol

- Paper Towels

- Sand paper (Recommended, not required)

- Band Saw (Optional)

- Belt Sander (Optional)

How to: (Total Time: About an hour)

Prepare: Get out all necessary tools and materials. Clean off 4' x 4' board with rubbing alcohol.

1.) Take each roll of double sided tape and use the utility blade to cut the entire roll of .75" wide tape in half to make it 2 rolls of 0.375 tape.
(Skip this step if you found 0.375" wide tape)

2.) Take each 8' long mould and cut it exactly in half with the utility blade by slowly scoring the surface until you can wiggle it apart. (OR use a band saw to cut the mould to 4' length)

3.) Belt sand each cut end to sand it down to exactly 4' or to smooth the surface of the cut edge. (Hand sand it if you don't have a belt sander)

4.) Apply the 0.375 thick double sided tape to each of the 11 4' long moulds you just cut. *Do not peel off the second side yet!*

5.) Take off the protective strip on the exposed side of the tape on the first mould.

6.) Carefully apply the mould to the bottom edge of the 4' x 4' board.

7.) Take 2 (or more) ranger keys inside Jedi Pimp C's plastic cases and put them at each end and slowly line up the mould snug on the tops of the cases. Press down firmly and slide the case as you apply the mould to the board so you can maintain consistent distance between moulds. (Make sure its not too snug so you can still slide the cases out the sides)*See "Review of Jedi Pimp C's Plastic Ranger Key Holders" in the Merchandise section*

8.) Repeat step 7 until all moulds are in place.

9.) Wipe down the surface with rubbing alcohol to clean it one last time.

10.) Mount your new shelf to a wall in your house, apply the keys, step back, and enjoy the beauty of your "Marvelous" collection =D


I hope you enjoyed this How-To! Now for some pictures!

Wow this is great blinddrummer15!

It's simple, yet effective. It'll look great with all of your keys displayed. Be sure to upload a pic of the finished display!

I was thinking about making a gokaiger logo decal to span across the entire thing, or maybe text of the team names with vertical lines to separate the teams. Hmm...

The white just looks too boring.

I got a couple more cases today =D

only 2, but that's more than yesterday!

These new cases have plastic on the top so you can hang them by nails or whatever you'd like!



PM me or post in Jedi Pimp C's thread for them later today!

I decided to put my most prized "Special" Ranger keys in the 5 cases I have:



They're easily stacked to store in boxes too.

You could just pin them to a bulletin board or nail them to your wall too!

That gokai logo idea sounds like it would look great!

I wanna make a suitcase Kamen Rider Style that could eventually hold a key for every Sentai member. Would they even make suitcases that big?
