It doesn’t matter how careful or organized you are there is a good chance that at some point in time you will misplace or lock your keys in the car. Perhaps you are running late for work, distracted by something happening at work or home, or just plain old forgetfulness. Whatever the reason, there is nothing more frustrating than standing next to your car fumbling around in your purse or staring in the car window at your keys sitting on the front seat of your vehicle. According to the knowledgeable experts at Priceless Towing there are some steps that you can take to minimize and even avoid a car lockout from happening to you.
How to Avoid Locking Your Keys in the Car
Attach your keys to a keychain, lanyard or carabiner clip: There are several things that you can do to minimize losing your car keys including using a key chain on a lanyard that can be placed around your neck or a carabiner clip that can be attached to your belt clip, handbag or inside your briefcase or any other convenient place that you can physically attach your keys to your person. It’s important to keep in mind that no matter how careful you are there is still a chance that you keys may be dropped and lost. Add a bell or other item to your key chain that will make a noise and give you an alert when dropped onto the floor.
Develop new habits to remember keys: There is much to be said about developing a new habit and believe it or not it can help you to drastically reduce the chance of you losing your car keys and your sanity. Make it a habit by keeping track of the items that you regularly carry such as your phone, wallet and car keys by keeping them together in the same place. This simple rule will help you avoid important items from being left behind or lost. Before you leave to get into your car repeat this simple mantra, “wallet, phone, keys” to help you remember and minimize the risk of forgetting or losing your keys or other items.
Keep a spare key in a handy place: While taking care to plan in advance can help you avoid a car lockout situation from happening to you, the truth is that even the best laid plans have a habit of going left field when we least expect them to. According to the knowledgeable experts at Priceless Towing one of the best pieces of advice that they can offer is to keep a spare set of keys in a safe place such as with a family member, trusted friend or a secure place within your home or office environment where someone can easily collect them if needed. In the case that you find yourself out of options, contact your Priceless Towing professional for 24/7 emergency roadside assistance.
Check electronic keys regularly: Finding yourself locked out of your vehicle isn’t always a matter of a lost set of car keys. If your transponder key, electronic key or chip key is malfunctioning you will not be able to gain access to your vehicle. One of the first signs that something may be wrong with your electronic key includes a key that is slow to respond. Have your key examined by an expert to determine whether or not it needs to be repaired or replaced.
