What would be the best kind of glue to attach the key to the ring base??

A really strong glue, like superglue or Krazy glue will work well!

Time to take a visit to Goodwill! @amanda panda .. I'm pretty sure but there's no plastic on the bottom to rip off. My L fell off once. But as you can see, I stuck it back on there and showed it who's boss.
