After 70 years, I still couldn’t find my front-door key in the dark. Until now. I sat down and thought about it and came up with the idea shown in the drawing. I drilled an off-center hole in the body of the key and put the key back on my key ring. Now I can hold up the ring in the dark, and the educated key will pop out at about a 45° angle. It never forgets.
