3 Unique Places To Start Hiding Your Spare House Key

If you would like to make sure that you are never going to find yourself locked out of your house again, you will want to check out the following suggestions for places to hide your spare house key. Use one or all of them and you and your loved ones will never be stuck outside again.

Under The Bird Seed

Do you have a bird feeder on your porch, in your yard, or hanging from a tree? If not, you might want to consider getting one. Not only do bird feeders serve as wonderful entertainment, as you get to watch the birds in all of their glory, but they can serve as a great place to hide the keys. Simply tape your spare house key to the bottom of the interior portion of the bird feeder. You will then cover the key with bird seed so that it is not longer visible to anyone walking past it. Just make sure that you are checking on the feeder every couple of days so you can add more seed as needed.

Inside The Dog House

Do you have a dog that occasionally spends some time outside so you have a doghouse in the yard? If so, then you might want to take advantage of it being there and use it as a place to hide your spare house key. Simply use duct tape to tape the spare key inside of the dog house. Just make sure that it is out of sight from anyone that might walk past. However, it is unlikely that you will have to worry about many criminals wanting to risk checking out the inside of a dog houses, especially if they cannot be sure as to whether there is a dog in there or not.

In The Flowerbed

Hiding your spare house key in the soil from your flowerbed is ideal, especially since not a lot of people will simply want to start digging through the dirt in your yard in hopes that they might stumble across a spare key. Keep the house key protected from rust by placing it inside of a large prescription medication bottle with a tight lid. Dig a small hole in the soil and slide the bottle in. Cover with soil and then place a marker on that spot so you will be able to find it when you need it. You can use a decorative rock or other landscape decoration to mark the location of the key.

With those three hiding places in mind, you should have no trouble figuring out where to hide your spare key. For more tips on how to secure your home, or for help when you're locked out, contact a company like Broadway Locksmith Inc.
