Flatirons Locksmiths, a full service locksmith company Tip#19. Follow up to Tip#17. A funny thing has happened since I posted Tip#17 suggesting that people always have a second set of car keys in case one set is locked in the car by mistake. Many of the calls we have been on recently to open cars the people we have opened them for had a second set of keys to the car but managed somehow to lock those in the car as well. So even with a second set of keys, that is not a full proof way to ensure access to your vehicle without needing to call a locksmith!
Another thing that locksmiths have suggested people do that has not proven to be full proof either and we have seen a lot recently as well, is the magnetic hide-a-key that goes somewhere under your vehicle with a spare key hidden inside. We have opened many cars recently where the owners have said that they had one of these hide-a-keys under their car but when they went to retrieve it, it was not there. They assumed that it must have fallen off somewhere. So even with all these precautions that you can take there still may be a call to a locksmith somewhere in your future… 😉 Remember us when you do!
