Clearly Useful

Minimalism meets functionality. When nothing is hung on it, our clear-plastic key-shaped key holder, 10" long and about 4" at its widest point, blends right into the wall behind it. Very subtle. (6) 7/8" long L-shaped hooks fit through countersunk 3/16" square holes. You assemble it and supply the screws for the (2) 1/8" countersunk mounting holes. In theory, when it's mounted against the wall, the hooks are held in place. In practice, we suggest a bit of model glue at the base of each hook. Functionality aside, it's a cool giant key!

RADIOMETER

Another oldie but goodie. 5" high evacuated clear glass bulb mounted in a black stand, 3" in diameter at the top. A four bladed vane is balanced on a needle inside the sphere. Because opposite surfaces of the vanes are black and white, incident radiant energy is absorbed or reflected to a different degree. The result is a spinning vane. The brighter the light, the faster it spins. Simple, but compelling. Brief explanatory instruction sheet included.
