Wonkey – ultra handy rubber key fixes wonky table legs and your OCD


Right admit it, how many of you freak out if you’re sitting at a table and you notice that’s it’s wobbling when you lean on it? Yeah lots of you, we know. It’s particularly infuriating if you’re out dining and trying to make a good impression on someone, and that table just keeps twitching every time you cut into your roast parsnips. Well now we’ve found you a solution.

Actually it’s totally ridonkulous that anyone even came up with this, but it’s also genius. The Wonkey is a keychain attached silicone rubber wedge in the shape of a key. The idea is you carry it around with you at all times, and whenever you come across a particularly annoying wonky table, you can fix it instantly by just slipping the key under the naughty leg.


That’s it basically. Of course by now the more astute reader will have noticed a key (!) point that must be stressed. It is quite important that you don’t wander off after your event and forget your keys which are under the leg… otherwise there might be tears.


But apart from that, we’re going to award this the ‘stupidest, but possibly most genius’ idea ever invented prize. And leave you with the fact that it costs £5 / $8 a pop. In random multi colors.

  • Not really new. See the wobble wedge.

    • Yeah, but the idea of having this attached to your keychain is definitely rather innovative, no?
