Unique Places To Hide Your Spare Key Outside


If you are concerned about getting locked outside of your house, then you need to find some unique places to hide your spare house key. This way, you will not only no longer have to worry about being locked out, but you will not have to worry about the wrong people finding that key. To help you with this, you will want to make sure that you are reviewing the following suggestions.

Within The Flower Bed Dirt

A great place to hide the spare house key is within the dirt in the flower bed, especially since it is unlikely that a criminal will just start digging through the dirt in hope of finding a key. However, you will need to be careful so you will not forget about the exact location of the key. To accomplish this, you will want to place your spare house key in an old prescription medication bottle and make sure that the lid is shut tight. Then dig a few inches into the soil and place the bottle in the hole. After covering it with soil, place a decorative rock, garden marker, or plaque or you will know where it is when you need it the most.

In The Doghouse

Being in the doghouse is great when you are simply trying to retrieve a key for your house. The best part is, you can assume that not many criminals are going to want to randomly approach a doghouse in hopes that there might be a key in there. After all, there could be a dog in there instead that could cause them serious injury. Just make sure that you are taping the key to the interior wall or ceiling with industrial packing or duct tape. This way, it is unlikely that the key will fall and become lost.

Under A Stepping Stone

It is important to make sure that you are securing the key to the bottom of the stepping stone. This way, you will not have to worry about the key slowly being pushed deep into the ground. To do this, you might want to consider using an industrial glue to glue a small plastic envelope to the bottom of the stone. You can then place the key in the envelope so it can be easily found later.

With those few suggestions in mind, you should have no trouble finding the perfect hiding place for your spare house key. Contact a local locksmith for more help and suggestions about spare keys.

Keeping Your Home Secure

After our neighborhood experienced a string of burglaries, I started thinking more carefully about our door locks. I realized that a few of our doors had older, outdated hardware, which might leave our home vulnerable to thieves. To ward off trouble, I invited a professional locksmith out to our house to replace our locks. After talking with me about all of the different types of locks on the market, he made a recommendation based on what kind of door we had. We settled on a really nice electronic deadbolt, and after it was installed we felt a lot better. Read more about home security and locks on this blog.
