How to avoid losing your car keys

Every once in a while, you’ll misplace our keys somewhere in the house. In most cases, this is followed by a mini panic attack and frantic searching. A few minutes later you should discover them hiding somewhere you least expected. This can result in wasted time, missed appointments and a host of other problems. That is, if you are able to find your missing keys. You could be left with the cost of replacing lost keys.

Below is a list of some of the top tips to avoid losing your keys:

1. Always store them in the same place

It seems simple, but it’s the most effective way to avoid losing your keys. As soon as you walk through the front door, pick a spot to always put them down. This could be on your entrance server, kitchen counter or next to your coffee machine. The location isn’t too important, as long as you always choose the same spot. If you always put your keys in the same spot, you’ll always know where to find them.

2. Get a key hook

Hanging your keys on a key hook in your home is another simple solution. While choosing a spot on your counter is a good solution, they could still get lost. They could fall off the counter or get food or liquid spilled on them. You can reduce these risks by getting a key hook and hanging them on there each time you walk inside. This way they won’t get damaged or lost.

3. Invest in a key ring

It may seem like an obvious choice, but many people do not have key rings. Some people prefer to have their car key separate from other keys or without a key ring. It is much easier to lose a single key that’s not attached to a key ring. If you tend to often misplace your key then you should get a key ring.

4. Get a key tracker

If you’re prone to losing your keys, then you may need a key tracker. This device tracks your keys. Key trackers are a simple keychain that enable you to track the location of your keys. This is usually done through bluetooth or GPS. You can track your keys through your mobile phone app. If you can’t find your keys, you can use your phone to help you.

5. Keep a spare key

If you don’t already have a spare car key, you need to get one. Don’t wait until it’s too late. If you have a spare key, you’ll always have access to your car. Even when you lose your other set of keys. Always remember to store your keys somewhere safe where you can access them. If you can’t find your original set and you’re in a rush, at least you can access your spare.

Keep your keys covered

You need your car keys to start your car. How will you get from A to B with no car keys? Not having access to your car can cause a host of problems. Not to mention the expense of replacing a car key.

If you lose your keys, it could leave a significant dent in your finances. Cars, like anything else in today, have progressed. Along with this comes more complex keys.
