Just curious, for those who remove their SIM card frequently (eg; frequent travellers, have multiple SIMs), do you carry your original Nexus 5 SIM ejector tool around with you?

Being an iPhone user for years, I never had to worry as I can find paperclips pretty easily and they do the job... but on the Nexus 5, the hole for the SIM eject tool is so tiny...

I used a paperclip at times but was afraid of it breaking some times so I carry a Sim tool ejector right behind my case its very thin and I don't notice any bulk on it

Toothpick? I thought toothpicks are usually thicker than paperclips?

The paperclips I have don't seem to fit...

I keep the tool from the N5 and the one from the Moto X on a keyring and keep them in a zipper pouch in which I also keep whatever phone I'm not using at the time, along with extra sim adapters. I swap between the two phones almost daily so I keep everything safe, handy, and in one spot.

I use the pin in my pocket knife. Seems to work fine, although you have to check them in when flying obviously.

A staple pin will work too.
