Halacha - Shabbos belt
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

The accepted Halacha is that the key must serve a functional purpose to be permitted and not just be attached or even decorative. I have seen a belt buckle where the key is attached in place of the prong that is inserted in the hole in the leather belt, and this is ideal.

A Rav would have to be very big or have very clear sources if he wants to permit something Reb Moshe forbade and none of his contemporaries disagreed. So it is unlikely, but it is possible.
