Hip keyrack uses magnets to clasp keys

I’m digging this wooden key rack concept by designer Thomas Bedós Bonaterra. Rather than using a mundane fastener such as a hook or Lego brick, his version relies on a hidden magnet to fasten your keys to the key rack. I wonder if it will support the unwieldy set of keys that I carry around? [via notcot]

  1. There’s some rare earth magnets you could bury in the wood that would probably hold the car, let alone the “unwieldy set of keys” that many carry.

  2. I love this idea, but wonder if it would harm my car keys that have a security chip in them, as well as controlling the door locks, and ID for the seat settings.

  3. Nice design, but a lot of my keys are non-ferrous.

    In fact out of the 8 keys I carry around, only 1 would stick to a magnet.

  4. I just bought a stack of 1mm thick by 8mm diameter rare earth magnets. You could glue one of them to each non ferrous key and then they would stick no problem.

    As long as your electronics don’t use hall effect sensors (unlikely) I don’t think the magnets would affect alarm fobs and so on? You wouldn’t want to stick your magnetic swipe/credit cards to it though of course!

  5. I really like this… Great look simple design, and functional… I only worry about people with USB drives on the key chain.

    Other than that great make.

  6. Can any person please show me tips on how to get rid of the exercise selection from the elgg webpage in addition to revise typically the mine and also close friends site when i will need.
