4 Tips To Avoid Locking Your Keys in Your Car
Many of us have locked keys in a car at least once. Believe us, sometimes it happens even to locksmiths, so we understand how frustrating that can be, especially if you have somewhere to go or worse you're in a rush. If you don't have a spare key handy, there is little you can do once you close the car door and realize the keys are still hanging in the ignition or on the seat. The following tips are helpful to keep in mind when you're behind the wheel, and they may save you the trouble and embarrassment of locking your keys in the car. We created them from both our and our customers' experiences.
Check Every Door
Hide a spare key on the outside of your vehicle
- Behind the front license plate
Usually, the most obvious hiding place is the least predictable. That's why keeping a spare key behind the license plate is a good idea. You may even purchase a special container to hide the license plate to do it neatly and keep your key safe.
- Behind the bumper
That is a common and widely known hiding place. So you have to be very careful and even a bit more creative if you’ve decided that this is the right place to hide your keys. In this scenario you may use a special hiding box as well, since a car’s bumper isn’t the cleanest and most protected place in the world.
- Inside the gas tank hatch
This method is very similar to the previous ones. Use adhesive tape to fasten the key securely and ensure that the gas tank lid closes properly and the key remains unnoticed.
