Don’t lose your car keys!
We all know the feeling, dashing frantically around the house looking for lost car keys that always seem to disappear at the worst possible moment. Perhaps you’re already late for that vital business meeting? Or job interview? Or perhaps your children are waiting to be picked up from school? Welcome to the world of minor disaster.
Here are four of our top tips to make sure you never lose your car keys again:
Always keep your car keys in the same place. Seemingly obvious, we know, but you’d be amazed how many people don’t follow this simple practice. Don’t, however, keep your keys where they could be seen by someone passing your house or ‘hooked’ through your letter box from the outside and stolen.
- Use a key ring with tracking technology linked to an app on your smartphone.
- Look again – carefully – where you first looked. There’s a good chance your keys really are where you thought you had left them but, in your rush, you missed the fact they had slipped under those letters on the coffee table.
- Ask a locksmith to make you a duplicate car key, before you lose the only one you have left!
Critically, if you do ever lose your keys and find yourself locked out of your car, don’t attempt to break back in. You’ll almost certainly just damage your vehicle and still be left standing there an hour later. Even if you do manage to force your way inside, knowing you keep a spare key in the glovebox, you’ll probably leave your car weakened and more vulnerable than before to criminal entry. Instead, contact a professional auto locksmith, which reminds us…
One thing even worse than lost car keys is then realising you don’t even know a good professional auto locksmith to prepare you a new key. At least that’s not a problem you’ll ever face again – just call us at SR Key Solutions.
