No one gets locked out of their car on purpose but it happens. This could happen anywhere, which is partly what makes it scary. The following are five tricks you can consider to avoid getting locked out of your car.
One thing you can do is check yourself before exiting the car. Creating a habit ensures that you always have your keys with you before locking yourself out. This may take some time, but it is a good way to solve the issue in the long run.
Another thing you can do is carry your keys on a lanyard. It is pretty hard to forget something around your neck, so having a lanyard to carry your keys should prevent you from locking yourself out. A good thing about lanyards is they are customizable, so you can be sure it’ll match your look.
Those who do not want to wear a lanyard could try a carabiner. This is almost like a keychain, so you will not have to worry about wearing something as visible as the lanyard. Another good thing is the carabiner is pretty large, so you may be able to fit a number of keys on it if you desire.
Sometimes, the keychain can be forgotten, and the lanyard is a little invasive. At this point, you might want to try the wristband. You can have your keys on a wristband, which is pretty hard to forget, and it can be made to look pretty stylish. Remember that you can always remove the wristband once you are out of the vehicle and your keys are safely with you.
Another thing you can try is duplicating your keys. You can keep the key in your wallet, or you can leave it at home or with a trusted friend. You can also leave keys in a number of places just in case. This step should definitely help get you back in your car without having to call a locksmith.
These are just some of the things you can do to keep yourself from getting locked out. Try to talk to your locksmith like The Lock Shop or someone similar for additional tips as he or she should be able to give you some guidance. Make sure you also ask others to see how they’ve manage to keep themselves from making this mistake.
