This is and easy and useful magnetic box to hide your keys.
You can hide for example your car keys under your car when you go hiking or running and you don't feel to bring them with you, or a spar pair of your house keys anywhere in a metal box or under any metal surface.

YOU MAY WANT TO PAINT IT BLACK OR GRAY TO CAMOUFLAGE IT BETTER.

I made something similar to this. It is called the STiCKiT. I posted it to this contest too. Good Idea.

Thanks! I just see your ''stick it'' is a good idea too!

I think this a great idea. A new. twist to the old hide-a-key boxes. One wouldn't have to have it on the vehicle always, just keep it inside until there's need to use it. I do agree though, a cheap neodymium magnet could be used or the intent was of a more permanent intent.

Thanks!
I wouldn't keep it under my car when I drive it too.
Like you wrote, just inside of it, to use when needed.

Good basic idea, but I've never seen magnetic strips with any serious holding power. Considering the bumps and splashed-up chemicals and debris from the road, I wouldn't trust them to hold indefinitely.

You'd be better off using epoxy or hot glue to attach a couple of REAL magnets. They sell some very cheap but powerful ones that are basically computer salvages. Best place to find them, as well as other cheap surplus materials, is:
