Key Catcher / Lock

Key Catcher
Key Catcher

It's difficult to open the door during the night, especially to the people with poor eyesight and the aged. The keyhole is too small to aim at.
Here we design a lock which has colorful “magnetic door”. By “magnetic door”, the keyhole can attract the steel key automatically. Then people just push the key into the hole to open the “magnetic door” and real door. It's very funny and optimizes the traditional operation process. After pulling out the key, the “magnetic door” will close automatically because of the spring behind the magnet.
You can imagine that any people can open the door without any light.
