Magnetic light switch cover offers new home for wayward keys

Industrial designer student Jake Frey materializes a simple magnetic solution for misplaced keys.

Jake Frey is only a third-year student of industrial design at Philadelphia University, but he's already marketing his simple, but smart, solution for misplaced keys.

Frey's modified light switch cover places a high-powered magnet on the back of the base plate, giving your keys a dedicated landing pad when you arrive home.

The $24.95 price tag sounds like a lot for a magnet, but it's still cheaper than other key-locating solutions like this wireless key finder from Brookstone, which actually worked for my mom until she lost the transmitter that went with it.

Jake Frey's Magnetic Switch Cover is available now at TheFancy for $24.95.
