Lock Checkey / key

Lock Checkey

iF concept design award 2014

iF concept design award 2014

When leaving the house, we are sometimes not sure later whether we really did lock the door or not. And then we worry about whether to go back to check to see if the door is locked. The "Lock Checkey" was inspired by a ballpoint push button, which is equipped with a small panel that indicates whether the door is locked or not. As a result, users can always easily check to see whether or not the door is locked at any time wherever they are.

"A pretty nice solution for a daily encountered problem. The connection between ball point pen and the key is interesting."
