Worst & Best Places To Hide a Key

Worst places to hide a spare key 

1) Under your welcome mat
You might as well be welcoming a burglar into your home because this is the first place they’ll look. Plus it is obvious when you bend over to put it under the mat.

2) Under a flower pot near the front door
This hiding spot is convenient for you— and for a burglar.

3) Inside a poorly placed fake rock
That fake rock isn’t fooling anyone if it’s just sitting in a garden and there are no other rocks around.

Best places to hide a spare house key

1) With a neighbor you trust
We believe that your neighbors are your best allies against burglars. So give a trusted neighbor your spare key.  If anyone finds the key, they’ll just assume it’s the neighbor’s, not yours. Just make sure there’s no information on the key that would identify it with you.

This is the most secure place to hide a key, but also the least convenient (unless they neighbor hides they key somewhere safe outside where you can find it).

2) In a magnetized lock box under your car 
Most burglaries occur from 10 a.m to 3 p.m—when you’re not home.

So it makes sense to hide your key in a car magnet key case under your car. Because when you’re not home, neither is your car—or the spare key.

3) Under the dog house
You know what burglars fear-Dogs. They don’t want to go near them. So that means they’re not going to go near the dog house either. Hide the key under the dog house to keep it safe.

4) Fake sprinkler key holder
Move over fake rock, here comes the fake sprinkler key holder. This fake sprinkler head is indistinguishable from a real one and blends in nicely.  Obviously, this is only for homeowners who have sprinkler systems.

Or of course you can bypass the keys altogether and get one of these fingerprint door handles
