If you want to make sure that you are never going to have to worry about being locked outside of your home ever again, you will want to consider using some of the following spare key hiding spots.
Fake Sprinkler Head
Hiding a spare key in a fake rock has been done for so long that criminals are starting to catch on, especially since those fake rocks really do look fake. However, you can hide a spare key in a fake sprinkler head if you already have a sprinkler system in your yard. It will blend right in with all of the other sprinkler heads, so no one should suspect that there is a key hidden in there. All you have to do is stick it in your yard, unscrew the top cap, place your key inside, and secure the cap back into place. The fake sprinkler head can be purchased online or even in some home improvement stores.
Inside Of The Bird Seed Feeder
If you have a bird seed feeder in your yard that you like to keep well stocked, you might want to consider using it as a place to hide your spare house key. It is important that you do keep it well stocked with seed in order to keep the key out of sight from anyone that may walk past. To hide the key without an issue, you will need to empty, clean, and dry the bird feeder. Tape the key to the bottom of the dish and then cover it with a thick layer of bird seed. As long as you are using a strong tape and you are completely covering it, the key will not become rusted from exposure to moisture.
On The Back Of A Decorative Flower Garden Sign
If you have decorative sign that is placed in your flower garden, you can use it to conceal the spare house key. First make sure that the back of the sign is clean and dry. Then use duct tape to tape the spare key to the back of the sign and make sure that no part of the key is going to be exposed to the elements. All you have to do now is to make sure that you are positioning the sign back in your flower garden so that no one is able to see the back of it no matter where they walk.
It should now be much easier for you to think of the perfect spare key hiding place in your own yard.
