Rated 3 out of 5 by asta17 I went to the store with the intention of buying this key hook, but ended up leaving with the Kryptos hook instead. This is much smaller than expected, and the actual hooks are not nailed down, so they slide across the body of the key and kind of face in different directions. I didn't like that things flopped around so much. Aesthetically it is very cute, but just not practical.

Rated 2 out of 5 by saja Nice look, poor build
This piece looks attractive to me. But it surprised me with the build quality. It broke immediately when I dropped it by accident from about 5 feet height. Now I have to buy a super glue to repair it!

I was looking for something to hang decorative hearts from in my daughter's room. When I saw this, I knew it was perfect. Not only is it cute that it is a key (like the key to my heart) but it also has a heart shape as the hole in the key.
I ordered mine online and received a silver one like is shown in the photo, but ended up in the store and saw that the one there was dark silver almost bronze looking. I also saw the other key hook which is significantly larger than this one with fixed "posts" to hang things (keys) from. I LIKE that this one has movable dangling hooks as things can slide along, and in my case I can position the things I hang from it where I please.
In my opinion, the larger key hook looked kind of clunky where this one is just the right size. If I were to use it as it's intended purpose for keys, I think it would work just fine as well. It might be easier to grab keys from the fixed key hook than from this "swinging" hook style, but again in my case that was a non issue.
It didn't come with screws, so the ones we used aren't that attractive, but you don't really notice them anyway. The hearts I hung from it are pretty heavy (by fishing line) and it seems very secure, so I don't think it's flimsy either....seems sturdy and well made to me.
