Key finder

  • What does it do?:

    Helps finding misplaced objects.

  • What’s the problem?:

    This gentleman would leave his walking stick in various locations around the house or when out and about, then struggling to remember where it was when he needed it.

  • What our testers liked:

    The device came preprogrammed, It has four fobs to allow you to track multiple items.

  • What our testers disliked:

    Putting in the batteries was a bit fiddly and needed a coin, the sound was a little quiet and not very directional.  The fobs would attach easily to keys but not easy to attach to other items prone to getting lost like spectacles or walking sticks.  You must remember which item each colour button on the transmitter refers to and  to return the transmitter to the base plate or it might get lost too.

  • What is interesting:
  • Making a note of which item is connected to wich colour on the transmitter would help.
  • What our testers said:

    "This is a nice idea but does not solve the whole problem, only useful for larger items."

  • Manufacturer:


  • Approximate cost: £17
