On Shabbat, in places where there is no communal eruv (or for those who do not rely on a communal eruv), taking your house key with you when you leave your home is a problem of carrying. One workaround is the use of a key belt. This is a belt worn as clothing, in which a removable house key functions as an essential component of the belt.
If you use this workaround, what do you do when you get to your front door? Do you detach the key from the belt? Leave it attached but unbuckle the belt? After unlocking the door, can you just go in, or do you need to re-buckle the belt? In general, are there any issues to be aware of?
