With the help of a key turn aid, it can become very easy to open a door and start your car even when you lost strength in your hands or have arthritis.
There are a large number of helpful products available to help you open a locked door but you have to make sure you buy the right one.
It is no one size fits all in this case. A car key is not as easy to fit in one of these key turner aids as a door key because of the thick plastic cover they come with.
Where to find key turner aids
I found a large selection in an online store I recently discovered and like I always do I did some research on that particular webstore and found some good reviews.
I did not start to write and research these easy key turners for no reason. I had a few relatives that told me that it was harder for them to open a door with a key.
Reason for me to dig deeper.
After I had a look at jar openers for seniors to make life easier the easy key turners were a logical next step.
Especially when you are having little arthritis in your hands it can be challenging. I even have a problem sometimes when a door is a kind of jammed or does not fit well in the doorframe.
Video on how to install a key in the key turn aid
Not all key turners work the same but this is a basic video on how to place the key in them.
There is also a number of people who look for so-called car key turner aid. As I mentioned before it is not easy to find the right one for that specific type of key.
The reason is that they usually have already a thicker piece of plastic at the end to ensure a better grip than for example a door key has.
I some cases you will have to remove that plastic or make a copy of your car key and then add the EZ key turner.
If you think that a key turner can help you in case of a hard to open door or if you have arthritis you can have a look at several models here.
There are key turner holders available that can hold multiple keys and although they might be a little bulkier I can see the benefit is having one device that holds all your keys.
These products to help you open a lock easily without problems are very affordable.
let me know if there is anything else I can help you with and it does not have to be about a key turner aid, but any product.
