“顺时针” “逆时针” / Clokewise Anti-clokewise

“顺时针” “逆时针”

In everyday life, we often can’t determine to which direction we should turn the key. This design can help us solve the problem by the rise of the soft silicone gel driven by the infrared induction.When the key is inserted into the lock hole, the internal chip of the lock hole will have infrared induction and then the soft silicone gel in the finger position of the key will rise. If it rises on the right, we should turn the key clockwise; if on the left, we should turn the key counterclockwise.
