Hiding your spare key under a rock is so old hat (but you can still check out Instructables.com to make your own.) Having a spare car key is a good idea for a multitude of reasons. Of course, if you lock your keys in your car or forget where you placed them, knowing that you have a spare set is one of the best feelings in the world. And, if you gave your spare to someone else, you know that there is always another option if you lock your keys in your car or misplace them.
So, what are some of the best spots to hide your spare car key? Let’s take a look.
Hide it on the Car
This may not be for everyone, and probably one of the first places a thief will look, but hiding your key in a magnetic box on your car is one of the most popular places. If you’re going to go this route, try to find somewhere a little more creative than under the wheel well.
In Your Purse or Wallet
Sometimes the most obvious places are the best. Keeping your spare key in your wallet or purse makes finding that spare key, or having it when you’re away from home, that much easier.
With Your Neighbor
If you trust your neighbor, keeping a key with them can be helpful. Of course, if you lose your key at 2 a.m., they might not be that happy about it.
In a Unique Spot
If you’re hiding it under a rock near your front door, that spare key may not last there too long. Why not look for a few more unique spots on your property that may be a little harder for a random person to guess, but somewhere you’ll never forget. Hiding it inside vinyl siding or even using a fake sprinkler (instead of a fake rock) may be smart moves.
