It only takes a few seconds of distraction to lock keys inside a car or set them down in a public place. Since this is a problem that affects many people in Omaha and other cities across the rest of the country, we’re often asked the most common causes of this major hassle. Because Big Red Locksmiths is a big believer in taking preventative action, we want to help shed some light on this issue:
Not Having a Spare Key
Based on two decades of helping people when they get locked out of their car, the most common reason that individuals end up stuck in this unpleasant situation is because they don’t have a spare key they can use. Even though a spare key is a very simple but effective solution to this dilemma, far too many people forget to have one made.
Since there’s a proven solution to this problem, if you want to give yourself peace of mind when you’re out driving, stop by Big Red Locksmiths so we can cut a spare key for you. Thanks to our expert team members and top of the line machinery, we can provide you with a spare key in just minutes. The keys we provide are just as reliable as your original so you can have one or a few made to store in your Omaha home for safe keeping.
Putting Keys Down on a Table, Counter or Other Surface
If you’re out running a number of errands, you may be getting in and out of your car quite a bit. Since you’re not staying in any location for very long, you may keep your keys in your hand instead of putting them in your pocket or purse. While this may seem like an easy way to save a couple of seconds, it can also lead to you getting locked out of your car. If you accidentally put your keys down on a table or other surface, they may be moved or taken you realize you’ve misplaced them.
Whether it’s your children or a cell phone call, there’s no shortage of things competing for your attention. Because we’re all constantly bombarded with distractions, it’s easier than we’d like to admit to forget about something like grabbing your keys.
Not Storing Keys in a Consistent Location
As previously mentioned, the best tip for avoiding a lock out is to have a spare key made. Another useful tip for avoiding any issues with getting into your car is to make the habit of always put your keys in the same location. Not only does this apply to placing them in the same pocket or spot in your purse, but it also means having a designated area to put them in your Omaha home.
