Getting locked out of your vehicle can be both frustrating and stressful. There are a number of incidents and reports where the keys got locked inside the car, lost, or stolen. When you can’t gain access to your vehicle, you may panic. However, there is always a solution. There are a number of companies that provide lockout services and will help you gain access to your vehicle. Speedway Towing & Roadside Assistance is one of them. Today we would like to share a few tips to help you prevent lockout situations from occurring.
Keep Track of Keys; GPS Key Finder & More
One way to never lose your keys is to keep them with you at all times. Most will think that goes without saying. However, unless you develop a nervous habit of continually checking to see if your keys are in your pocket, there are other ways to guarantee you have your keys with you. Key ring clips are a good way to keep your keys with you at all time. You can clip your keys to your belt loops or for the ladies, your purses. This will help prevent keys falling out of purses, pockets, or bags without you knowing. Did you know you can also GPS track your keys? There are key chains that have a GPS tracking device that you can program into your phone to help you locate your keys if they get lost. Some other additional tips are to have a noisy key ring. Sometimes hearing your keys wrestling around in your pocket or purse helps you know that you have your keys. The absence of the noise is sometimes enough of an alert that they are not with you. You can always check to see if your keys are with you. If you’re at home or going to school or work have a designated place you put your keys and before moving to another location, check to see if your keys are still there. Be conscious of where you put them and make sure they are not in a place where they can be easily stolen.
Spare Car Keys
Spare keys are another well-known concept. Always have a spare key at home. You may also want to consider having a spare key at your workplace if possible, or keep one in a bag, purse or even wallet. Some people may even use a magnet key case to place in a hidden area on the outside of their car in case they get locked out.
Faulty or Broken Car Door Locks
Losing your key isn’t the only way to get locked out of your vehicle. Sometimes the locks to your vehicle could be faulty or broken which results in being locked out. When you begin to experience problems with your vehicle’s locking system, have it repaired as soon as possible.
