NEVER RETURN A CART AGAIN!!
Why do some Grocery Stores chain up all the shopping carts?
Does your local store force you to have a coin to unlock the cart?
Have you ever needed to walk to the cashier to make change, then walk back out to get a locked cart?
They should make something to fix this!
I decided to use the 3D printer craze to solve the missing coin problem. Due to a number of requests I designed a token in the shape and size that fits a Canadian $1 loonie coin.
The best part is this will also come back out of the trolly once it is unlocked.

This Shopping cart token also has the added tab to attach to your key chain so you have easy access to it.The Shopping Cart Token is very light and manufactured from sturdy ABS plastic.
You can have one on your main key ring, one on your spare key ring, or use as a Party Favors, or Stocking Stuffers.
This Shopping Cart Token has been tested with a Canadian loonie ($1)

The following coins are about the same size as this token, but I have not tested them myself:
5 NIS Shekels (5₪) (go to the smaller size above for a better fit)
2 Euro (€2)
fifty Pence (50p)
20 krone (20kr)
$2 New Zealand
Be aware that this is 26.5mm diameter size token. If your local currency is a different size then this might not work for you.
Some people have discovered that their grocery Store carts require a different size of coin. This Shopping Cart Token will only unlock the 26mm size cart locks as seen in the video. If your cart lock requires you to push the coin in with a metal bar (e.g. The Real Canadian Superstores in BC), than this token will not work for you.
