Featured Thing!

Description

I don't know if this is international but in the UK modern homes have gas and electricity meters on the outside of the house that need a triangular key to be accessed. Easy to lose, so here is one you can make in about 25 minutes.

I needed this key a couple of days ago, but didn't have the time to draw it myself.
Instead I bought this:

Neat thing about that one is that it doubles as a bottle opener.

I printed this one today anyway.

Thanks a lot!

Also most bins have these locks, so great for us dumpster divers.

beautiful opportunities arise, considering the fact, that most countries use the triangular locks, for their streetlights and some even for their traffic lights ;)
