big-red-locksmiths-residential-home-lockout-servicesIf you come home and realize that you’re locked out, it’s completely normal to feel overwhelmed. However, the good news is you should try to remind yourself that getting back inside doesn’t have to be a struggle. Instead of needing to resort to something quite costly like breaking a window, you can simply call Big Red Locksmiths. We specialize in remedying home lockouts and a variety of other situations. In fact, since you’re probably reading this before you find yourself in the position of being locked out, we’re going to cover how you can prevent this from ever happening.

Spare Keys and Home Security in Omaha

At Big Red Locksmiths, one of our areas of expertise is home security. If a homeowner in Omaha has a problem with an aspect of their home security or knows they need to make some upgrades but aren’t exactly sure what they should do, we can help come up with the best solution.

This brings us to having a spare key for your house. Getting a spare key professionally made is an obvious way to ensure you can still get inside your home even if you lose your primary key. However, what’s not so obvious is being able to store this type of spare key without putting your home’s security at risk.

When people hide a spare key in an obvious location, they run the risk of someone who wants to get inside being able to do so without needing to use any force. Hiding a spare key under your welcome mat, in a flower pot near your front door or inside a fake rock are all examples of bad spots. The same goes for keeping a spare key in your wallet.

While losing your primary key is a hassle, the odds of someone knowing where a random key goes are quite slim. But if you lose your wallet and have a key inside, someone can use the other items in your wallet to link the key to your home.

So, once you get a quality spare key from Big Red Locksmiths, where should you put it? Two excellent options are with a neighbor you fully trust or in a secure spot at your office. One of these options may stand out based on how often a neighbor is home or if you always have easy access to your office. If neither of those options work and you decide you want to hide your key outside, your best bet is to put it in a box and bury it somewhere secure in your backyard.
