Magnetic Light Switch Cover is one way not to lose your keys
by Mark R
Magnetic Light Switch Cover is proof that the simplest of ideas are the best ones. I’m sure all of us have lost our keys before, so why not have a magnetic light switch cover to stick them to the moment we enter our dark dwelling after unlocking the door?
That is the idea of Jake Frey, a third-year student of industrial design at Philadelphia University. This light switch has a high-powered magnet on the back of the base plate.
I wonder if this is an electromagnet, wired in with the same wires that are attached to the switch. I’m guessing no, but I could be wrong. Leave a comment if you know if this light switch cover is a stand-alone magnet.
I suppose that you could use a hook or a small shelf below the light switch to securely put your keys next to the light switch. That, and you don’t have to worry about leaving a scuff mark, not to mention people with pacemakers entering your home.
The Magnetic Switch Cover costs about $24.95 at TheFancy, and it looks like it comes in the traditional red and silver colors of U-shaped magnets. If you want another way of not losing your keys, you might want to try the easy2pick, it is available at the X-treme Geek site for the exact same price.
