Do you ever misplace your keys? If not, I salute you. If you do, you may be interested in this little key finder gadget.

People love to talk about the weather and, in this case, it is the weather that makes me long for an electronic key finder. For you see, as the seasons come and go and, even within one season, I change coats daily. The coat that I wore two days ago may not be light enough for today's unusually warm conditions so I switch. And I switch again. Perhaps I return home with my hands laden with items for my eBay store, I pull off my winter gloves, unlock the door and enter barely managing to deposit all that is in my arms safely on the floor...keys included. Or in another scenario, my son retrieves something from the car and returns, saying, "Here are your keys, Mom" and deposits them...on the washer in the laundry room.

You can guess what is coming next. The morning is flying by and I have my eBay parcels ready to take to the post office but...where oh where have my little keys gone? A key finder would be an extremely practical device at this moment in helping me find my lost keys!

Of course, until December I did not know that such a device even existed. We had a telephone once with a 'locator' button on it so that you could locate the handset when you set it down somewhere where it does not belong but I had no idea that they made similar gadgets for keys. Then I read an article in the newspaper and discovered "Gadgets to help find your keys."

A key finder gadget is just one name of many that I found for this little electronic device. I have also seen them called electronic key finders and, believe it or not, a key finder thing or thingy. Whatever you choose to call it, stay tuned to this page for more details about some of the key finders available to help you find your keys.

Are you tired of misplacing your keys? Searching for your wallet? Losing your glasses?

Then a wireless remote control key finder may be just what you need.

On this page you will find a discussion of four great key finder gadgets. They are four that received high star scores from Amazon's customer reviewers. None of these gadgets are perfect, but they have helped many people find their misplaced keys. You can click on any of the following finders to purchase one or to read more about it or you can visit Amazon's key locators to see a page full of key finders that I have not highlighted on this page.

The Click 'N Dig Wireless Key Finder

The Click 'N Dig Wireless Key Finder has a radio-frequency locator to help you find your missing items. It includes two key-ring receivers as well as two receiver plates and a single radio transmitter. You use the color-coded buttons to find up to four missing items that are located up to 60 feet away.


2-Way RF Find One Find All (FOFA ) Key Finder and Wallet Locator Set

The Find One Find All Key Finder (FOFA for short) has no separate base transmitter. Rather, all of the pieces are transmitters so if you can find one, you will be able to find them all. You will receive one key-fob style and one flat wallet style which will allow you to put one on your keys and one on your wallet or even your remote control.

"This is a great product. I keep the wallet unit synced with a key chain unit, and both are synced a secondary key chain unit that I keep in the living room, in case that I lose both wallet and keys. It all works out great with FOFA! The set up took less than five minutes - without reading the instructions." ~~ F. Garrett Warwick
 

Where's The Remote? LLC Key Finder

The Where's the Remote LLC Key Finder includes two receivers, a transmitter and extra batteries and features a 12-month warranty. Amazon customer Dave says that this gadget has saved him twice. He did have an issue with the first one that he was sent but the seller responded promptly and made sure that he wound up with a new unit that works perfectly. His wife says that they ALWAYS have one of these key finders in their home. See all the Amazon customer reviews for yourself by clicking right here.

EZ-Find! 25 Item Wireless Electronic Locator

The EZ-Find is a handheld remote device with LCD screen this unit will track up to 25 items including gameboys, phones, DS's cameras, wallets, pets and of course anything else you might lose upon occasion. Each tag is assigned a number. For instance, the number '1' represents Brenda's keys. When you've misplaced an item, just press 'Find' and a loud beep will have you locating the item quickly.

AMAZON CUSTOMER REVIEW: Amazon customer Robgman says that replacing the electronic key for his Toyota cost $350 and that after doing so, he purchased one of these sets! He put one in his wallet, one on his NEW keys and one on his Blackberry and he has had to use it to find each of those items.
 
LOC8TOR Plus Pack Key Finder

LOC8TOR Plus Pack - More than a key locater.

The LOC8TOR Plus Pack is the most expensive key finder I am featuring on this page. Amazon calls it the "ultimate tool" for helping you find and protect your belongings. It can be used in two manners -- as a locate or an alert device. When used in locate mode, it will help you find things by allowing you to select the item that you want to locate. It can also be used to let you know or alert you when something or someone has wandered off.

Reviews are mixed and it appears that none of these key finder devices are perfect. However, Thomas Wrascal summed his thoughts about the LOC8TOR Plus Pack when he said, "Works great! I use this all the time. Range is amazing and it's very reliable. I normally break gadgets within 6 months, but this has been with me for a few years now and still working fine."

Please Note:

This LOC8TOR device appears to have been discontinued but I found it here on eBay. Make sure you buy it from a reputable seller in case you have any warranty issues.
