5 Tips to Help You Stop Losing Your Car Keys, Poplar Tent, North Carolina

Lost keys can not only be frustrating, but they can also ruin your entire day. Luckily, there are several tricks to keeping track of your keys that are simple to incorporate into your life and may save you a call to the locksmith. The following guide explains how to implement these daily habits.

5 Ways to Prevent Losing Your Car Keys

1. Start a Habit

Keeping a bowl or hook for your keys right by the door can be extremely effective. Putting your keys in the same place every time you come home will become a habit. Make sure to pick a spot that is easy to see, like on a small table or a hook by the light switch. It’s also ideal to have this spot picked out near your front door so you see them whenever you come and go.

2. Use a Tracking Device

Nowadays, there are several digital options for tracking your smart keys. You can use a tracker with Bluetooth® that connects to your smartphone to show you your keys’ location. Other devices let you track your keys by emitting a sound.

3. Get a Large, Noticeable Keychain

locksmithThis may seem too simple, but you can purchase key chains that come attached to flashlights, phone cases, or card cases. You might also prefer a large fuzzy keychain, a reflective disco ball keychain, or one that’s designed with bright colors. Whichever keychain you choose, make it something that easily stands out.

4. Always Have a Spare

Having a set of spare keys can save the day if you lock yourself out or can’t find your keys before work. Contact your local locksmith service to ask about spare keys or key replacement. Also, put the spare somewhere safe and accessible.

5. Stop, Think, & Scan the Room

Before leaving the room or house, take a moment to stop and scan the entire room for items you may be forgetting. Doing this every time you’re preparing to leave will not only help you remember your keys, but it might also help with remembering your phone, wallet, and other important belongings.
