Smile key turners for vehicles :)

Car Starter

The OT at clinic found me these links. I have not ordered either yet. Has anyone here used them, or similar?

I used something similar to the car starter until I quit driving. It worked pretty well.

For what it's worth, I just used a long skinny screwdriver which I could insert into the end of the key. I just used it as a long lever. It was an old cheap one I had laying around in my toolbox.

I made one that looked like the Car Starter for Liz. Worked very well for her until she stopped driving.

I have a car starter (key turner). Not like the one referenced though. Mine looks more as if it were a miniature barbell. The shaft is small such as 1/2 the length of a ballpoint pen ink refill. The two dumpbells (the small marble size things, not me) screw onto the shaft. It is very easy to carry in a pocket or purse.

I like it. Well, I probably couldn't turn the ignition on without it. At home I changed all my door knobs to levers.
