A friendly reminder: Hiding a spare key underneath your welcome mat is not sneaky. It’s obvious. So, try one of these smarter key-hiding tactics!

The Brick Trick. We’re all for a well-maintained brick walkway, but one small chink in the mortar can be good news! Put the brick blemish to good use: if there’s enough space for a key, wedge it in there. Just make sure the key fits in such a way so that it’s both inconspicuous and easy-to-remove.

The Car Secret. A burglar is most likely to try and break in when you (and your car) aren’t at home. So hide your key in your car! There are a lot of lock boxes on the market for a spare car key, but they work just as well for house keys. Or simply hide the key inside of your car. There are certainly some flaws to this method (no car, no keys), but it’s still worth considering.

The Wind-Chime Method. What do burglars hate? Noise! That means that if a potential robber is searching for a spare key, they’re probably not going to go digging inside your wind chimes. Tip: To make this method even more secure, replace the wind chimes’ “knocker” with an entire ring of decoy keys. Even if a burglar finds them, they’ll have to sort through the decoys.

The Neighbor Switcheroo. A fake rock at your house may not be a great hiding place, but a fake rock at your neighbor’s house? We think that’s a strong spot. Obvious key-hiding places – like under a doormat, flowerpot or key rock – are only obvious if the key fits the door. So to fool burglars, hide your house key at your neighbor’s house.
