Magnetic Light Switch Plate Keeps Your Keys in Place

For anyone who loses their keys (read: everyone who has keys) and doesn’t enjoy keeping a bowl next to the front door because it always falls off of the tabletop, designer Jake Frey has created a magnetic cover that attaches on top of a light switch, strong enough to hold onto a metal keyring with keys attached. The bottom third of the cover is magnetic, and comes in a standard single switch size. Currently, there doesn’t seem to be a cover for flat or dimmer light switches, so those light switch owners will just have to rely on that bowl. Frey doesn’t mention how the magnet handles the kind of keys with a computer chip in them, but we all know magnets are the bane of technology, so it’s probably best not to put your fancy car key anywhere near the thing.

The magnetic cover can be purchased over at Fancy for $24.95. That may seem a bit expensive, but at what price keys? Now Frey needs to make one for the television remote.
