Tips to Help You Avoid Locking Your Keys in Your Car
Have you ever had the horrible moment when you realize you just locked your keys in your car? We’ve all been there. It is awful. It’s the worst when you can see them sitting right there, waiting to be picked up, if only the doors weren’t locked. Texan Lock and Key would like to share some tips to help you avoid locking your keys in your car again.
Come Up with a Routine to Always Keep Your Keys on You
The best way you can avoid locking your keys in your car is to come up with a routine that involves keeping your keys on you at all times. Find an easy way to do this every single time you get out of the car so that it becomes a habit. Find a way of gathering everything you need, especially your keys, and don’t stray from it.
Don’t Lock Your Car from the Inside
You should always lock your car from the outside of your car. Don’t ever lock it using the button on your door while you are getting out of the vehicle. If your car came with a key fob, you should get into the habit of using it every time you get out of the car. If your finger is always looking for that button on your key fob to lock the door, you will be less likely to leave them in your car. It is impossible to use the fob while the keys are left inside.
Duplication; Consider Making A Spare Copy of Your Car Key
If you have locked your keys in your car time and time again, you may want to consider having a spare set made. It would be a good idea to keep this spare set on your person, either in your purse or wallet. This way, if you do lock those doors too soon, you have a backup plan.
Get the Right Keychain
There are many different types of keychains available. Make sure you choose one that will help you remember those keys before you lock the door. You might want to find a keychain that is made out of bright colors, that will catch your eye easily. There are keychains that clip onto your purse or belt loop. You may want one that can act as a bracelet, to help you get used to having your keys in your hand all the time. The keychain for you might even include a lanyard that keeps your keys around your neck when you aren’t driving. Whatever one you choose, hopefully it will help keep those keys in your hands and not on your front car seat when you lock those doors.
Save the Phone Number of a Locksmith
If you are finding yourself locking your keys in your car more often than you would like, you may want to put your locksmith’s phone number in your contact list. That way, it is readily available for you if this were to happen again. Texan Lock and Key can assist you in getting your keys out of your car quickly so you can get back on the road.
