Short Take: Always Losing Your Keys? This Is For You

Posted By Fred On August 4, 2011 @ 1:00 pm In News / Editorial | 15 Comments

Here’s a neat find: an innovative switch plate design [1] by Jake Frey, a 3rd year Industrial Design student at Philadelphia University. The magnet appears to be powerful enough to hold a whole batch of keys by the key ring alone.

And in case you don’t fully understand how it’s designed, Jake provides this blueprint for the idea :-)

Looks like you can buy it directly from TheFancy for $25. I think it would be great for our upcoming workshop, but unfortunately it only comes as a single plate. We’ll likely have at least a two-gang box out there.

Perhaps Jake will see this and make us our own custom version. We can hope.
