Fake Rock Hides Building, House Key
Just about every spare key in America is hidden either above the shutter or under the mat and thieves know it. But one place they'll probably never look is in a rock lying next to the door.
The new "Lok Rok" from Sunflower Clayworks, Berea, Kty., looks like a rock, feels like a rock and is shaped like a rock, but along one side there's a slit that's just the right size to slip in a key. Inside, the hollowed-out rock has enough room to accommodate several house or farm building keys.
The Lok Rok is made from stone-ware clay and is 3 in. by 2 in. by 2 in. Although all are currently the same color, Joe Osolnik, the rock's inventor, says there are plans to adapt each Lok Rok to whatever region it's to be sold in making them redder in the Southeast, for instance, and lighter colored in the Midwest.
"This is a convenience, not a substitute for a good security system," cautions Osolnik, "but it does make it more difficult for the common thief."
The Lok Rok sells for $5.95, plus $1.00 for shipping.
