Hiding a Spare Key

I am forever going outside to my laundry room only to return and find the door has locked itself and I am locked outside. I had several experiences of climbing in windows in the cooler months and disturbing neighbors to call my daughter on several occasions, and finding out that this is just a flaw in my lock.


Then my son-in-law bought me one of the boxes that the realtors use. Now I have a hidden spare key on the inside of the door to my outside laundry room that has a secret combination and holds a spare key. No more being locked out of my house. I have been assured these can be bought pretty cheaply at a hardware store. (He got several, all for $1 at a yard sale and you set your own code! Do I have the best son in law or what? )

Great post!
I don't have a son in law but my daughters in law are real treasures.

I at all times, pin with a safety pin, a med. To large size pin, a spare house Joey to my slacks picker or other if a dress. Many times I use thus key. Last night left keys in vehicle but had spare house key in pocket.


Got ride home. Able to enter home and retrieve extra set keys and venture back to get vehicle and keys!

I bought 2 of the magneted boxes the kind for hiding car keys. Put the house key in the little box connect wherever you feel safe. One place is to stick it to back of washer/dryer
