Simple Keyholder

We are always putting the trailer keys above the microwave and that area gets pretty cluttered. I saw something on Pinterest where someone put a really strong magnet (neodymium) behind the faceplate of a light switch and it was strong enough to hold their key ring.

So I grabbed a small neodymium magnet and headed for the camper! This is simple and it works! (Just keep credit cards away from it!)

Great idea.

Over the years my keys have traveled all sorts of place in the A-Frame until I added the Gear Tie hooks. They keep my keys, glasses in one easy to locate yet 'out of the way' area

I now use earth magnets recommended by OP in other spits in the kitchen to attach frequently needed items on the kitchen shelves above the counter. The magnets are certainly small but powerful!

I used to use the magnets (for key holder) but they got knocked off too many times and then I started to worry about the electronics in my truck key (replacement key is 60-) and the autolock/alarm which is also on my key ring.

We put a couple of small Command Strip hooks just inside the door above the microwave for keys, sunglasses, the dog's leash, etc. Worked great until this past weekend. Lost the spare set of keys to the camper. . . Great idea that works when you use it.

Nice idea but does not work for the A194HW since the toilet/shower cover open against the bottom of the mirror. But the magnet will work.

LOL - Abdiver, the gear ties can be placed anywhere you'd want them since they have 3m sticky backs. Great to hear the magnet works well for you in your trailer. Here's to memorable adventures for you!
