Tips to Help Prevent Loss of House Keys


Losing something as important as your house keys is always an unpleasant and infuriating experience, but it is a problem you may encounter at some point. To make things worse, it may keep happening to you over and over again if you do not find a practicable solution for the problem. Smart homeowners know they can sometimes get forgetful and in the process lose their house keys. For that reason, they have adopted a number of clever ways to help them prevent key loss.

Keep your keys bunched together

Ever wondered why so many people usually carry around a bunch of keys when they only need a single key to lock and unlock their front doors? This is because it is generally much easier to keep track of a bunch of keys compared to just a single key. A single key may easily pass through a small hole in your pocket and get lost and it may also be quite difficult to feel when put inside the pocket, for example. With a bunch of keys in your pocket, you can always feel your keys when you are out and about, so you do not have to frequently reach into your pocket just to check if your keys are still there. 

If you keep your keys in a bag or purse, you will always have an easier time tracking them if they are bunched together. A single key may lurk at the rock bottom of the bag or purse, forcing you to spend too long stranded at the front door while searching out the contents of the bag. 

Use a key pouch

There are some important things you can never forget to take with you no matter where you go or what you will be doing, like your wallet (for the men) or your purse (for the ladies). Your wallet or purse helps you safety store all your cash, credit cards and other valuables in one place, thus having one has often been a necessity. So why don't you look after your house keys the same way?

Using a key pouch is a great way to keep track of your keys and keep them safe from prying eyes. There is an extensive selection of key pouches being sold on the market today, so you can definitely get yourself one that can fit your house keys and also looks nice to carry around.

Installing a Specialist Safe

Hello, my name is Mark and I live with my wonderful wife and kid in Brisbane, Australia. We live on the outskirts of town so it only takes me half an hour to get right out into the Bush. Last year, I decided I would like to invest in a hunting rifle so I could spend my weekend camping and shooting in the outback. However, when I am not using my gun, Australia law requires that it is kept in a secure location. I was lucky enough to find a great locksmith who fitted the safe and also installed new locks on my doors and windows
