Have you ever been in a situation where you locked yourself out of your home or car? We know, it’s not fun. There are many ways to prevent lockouts, including putting extra keys in your wallet or purse so that you always have one with you. You can also put a key in your desk at work (or somewhere else safe) so that if something happens while you’re away from home and need quick access to get inside again you’ll have a back up somewhere. If you’ve never thought of this before, trust us, it’s helped so many. Here are the top ways you can prevent lockouts. 

Keep extra keys in your wallet or purse

The first option is to carry an extra key with you. This is the most effective way to prevent a lockout, but it’s not foolproof. While the best place to keep the spare key is in your wallet or purse, if you leave it there and have your bag stolen, then those options are out. 

Put a key in your desk at work

If you keep your desk locked at work and have keys to enter your building at any time, then it’s not a bad idea to use that space to hide an extra set of keys. It will be easy-to-find but difficult-to-access and can save you panic should you find yourself in the situation in the future.

Use a valet service when out

A valet service – which drives your car for you when it’s parked in an area with public parking (or another place where drivers are not allowed to park) is a great way to stop the chance of a lockout. These organizations move cars from one area to another without damaging them or getting them stolen and also keeps track of the keys so you don’t have to.

By storing your keys in more than one place,  you’ll have access to an additional set stored somewhere else—in the office, in a safe deposit box, or with valet service. And if all else fails, there’s always a friendly neighborhood locksmith you can call.
