Key care tips for absent minds

What happens if you arrive home one day and you find you have lost your keys? Say you are about to head out of the door in the morning and you can’t find your keys, what are you going to do?

Losing or misplacing a set of house or car keys is one of the most frustrating things to happen in life. At best you’ll be able to track down a spare set of keys, at worst you’ll be looking at getting the keys replaced.

We can help if you need a locksmith service at Homesecure 24hr Ltd but simple care tips could prevent the need for this course of action in the first place.

Adopt these ideas if you want to keep your keys handy at all times.

Bunch keys together

One of the fastest ways to lose a key is to keep it all on its own, set apart from its pals. Lone keys are easier to lose and leave a smaller footprint. They fall out of pockets easier, slip through torn seams and are harder to track down when they go missing.

Solve this problem by bunching keys, place work and home keys together, add fobs for office doors and drinks machines too. The more keys you add to a bunch the bigger it becomes and the harder it is to lose!     

Buy a chunky key ring

If you don’t have a large amount of keys try buying a bulky key ring instead. Make your key stand out, give it more presence and place it on a chunky key ring, bulk it up and boost its presence this way.

Keep it in the same place

Do you keep your keys in the same place at home? If not, now’s the time to change your daily routine. 

Start keeping your keys in the same place. This could be on a hook, in a bowl or a basket close to your front door, just pick a spot and stick with it to prevent your keys from going missing.

Buy a gizmo!

One other way to prevent keys from going missing is to invest in a gadget designed specifically for this task. Take the ‘Tile’ for instance.  It’s a small tag you attach to your keys which you track via an iOS app, lose your keys and you can track and trace them via your smartphone.

There are various solutions on the market that help to prevent you losing a set of keys. If the unthinkable happens though give us a call at Homesecure and we’ll soon have you back in your house.
