Hi Blackstuff,
is that for your primary key or the spare. I already keep the primary set with me :)

My main set usually live in the car. Spare set are at work. But as you say. Not really viable for you. Maybe pic a double socket somewhere in the house and pop them in that

Double socket for a single key is a good idea :good:

I suggest a small safe with a combination lock, they don't cost much.

I have ours divided into two places and both are under individual lock and key plus not obvious. Probably the most positive recent security step was to inadvertently bend to 90 degrees the only spare key to the armoury whilst in the lock, it came out OK but broke when I went to straighten it so we just have one apiece which are always kept on our persons.


Ovenpaa, I thought you would have kept your spare key "on top" ....
