Helpful Tips for How to Not Lose Your Keys

It can be downright maddening when you're unable to locate your keys. This is especially true if you're in a rush to get out the door. If your keys become permanently lost, then help from a locksmith will be needed with getting you a new set. Fortunately though, there are some measures you can take to make your keys more easily locatable. Here are five ways to minimize the chances of losing your keys.

Use a Tracking Device

Amazon Tile and other techy tracking devices can be attached to your keyring. When you lose your keys, you can use an app to figure out your keyring's location. You can also just ask Alexa to communicate with your Tile and activate its loud tune.

Always Keep Them in the Same Location

Whenever you get home and walk in the door, you'll want to put your keys in their designated home. Common options include hooks and bowls. When part of your daily routine is to put your keys in their regular spot, they'll more likely be right where you need them when it's time to head out the door.

Keep Keys in Secure Pockets

Keys are more likely to fall out when they're kept in shallow, unzipped pockets. Such pockets also create a better opportunity for thieves to get their hands on your keys. To keep your keys secured, it's best to always place them in a zipped pocket on an article of clothing that will remain with you while you're out and about.

Glowing Keys

To more easily spot your keys in the dark---and in the light---you can coat them with a luminescent paint that makes them glow.


If you lock yourself out of your house, your hide-a-key could save your day. However, you'll want to be sure you keep your hide-a-key in a highly discreet location so that a would-be intruder isn't able to find it and use it to access your home.
