Tips For Not Losing Your Car Key

If you own a car, you likely want to be able to access it easily. This means that you need to make sure that you have the key on your person at all times, or at least know where it is. Unfortunately, keys are kind of small and are relatively easy to lose. You probably told yourself that you were going to make a duplicate of your key so that, in the unfortunate event that you lost your car key, you would have a backup. However, you might not have followed through with your plan and are not on your way to get a replacement key made. Here are some tips for not losing your car key so that this doesn't happen in the future.

1. Make Your Key Hard to Lose

The first thing that you should consider doing is making your car key really hard to lose. Put your car key on the same key chain as your house key and your office key. Add bobbles and other items to your key chain to make it as large as possible. This will make your car key much more difficult to lose.

2. Add a Tracker

There are a variety of tags on the market that you can attach to your car key and then use your smartphone to find them. Some will allow you to essentially activate the tag with your phone to have it buzz constantly so that you can find it. Others will have your phone beep at you if you get too far away from your car keys, allowing you to avoid forgetting them. Finally, you can get tags that will allow you to track them using a GPS signal. All of this will allow you to find your keys again after losing them within a short period of time.

3. Add a Phone Number

Finally, be sure that you include a phone number on your key, written in permanent marker, so that if anyone finds your lost key, they can call you and tell you that they have it. This will make it easier for kind strangers to assist you in helping you get back on track.
