“I received my Workey today it’s fabulous thank you sooo much. I felt so much more confident when I went out earlier knowing I wouldn’t have to struggle to get back in house. I use my Workey everyday it’s brilliant”
– Amanda J - Christchurch, UK.
"I have been having difficulties with grip for a number of years and one of the biggest battles for me was to grip and turn a key. Like so many others I have tried various key turners and whilst they do help slightly, they all have had drawbacks such as clumsy size, durability, practicality, indiscreet etc. The Keywing has overcome all of these issues in a simple but highly effective design. Robust, lightweight and a sensible size make this a very unique product which has made accessing my own front door so much easier - a task we all take for granted."
