SKREAM (Spare Keys Rule Everything Around Me)
Keeping a spare copy of the keys you rely on daily can save you time, stress and money when the time comes for you to use them.


Whether your car is a classic, a few years old, or directly off the sales lot, losing your keys entirely could set you back a pretty penny. While locksmiths are able to assist you in this event, the process and price vary by year, make, and model. Whether your keys are lost or stolen, the case of the missing keys never comes at a convenient time.

Traditionally, a Hide-a-Key placed on the underbelly of the vehicle was very popular. Today’s vehicle keys are often far more expensive and it is best to store them in your home safe or with a trusted friend or family member.


The days of leaving a key under the mat are behind us! It is recommended to store a spare key in a secure locking box, which can be mounted on the exterior of your home in a discreet manner. Many residents choose to install these in their backyards, far from the reach of a passerby.

When it comes to spare keys, have them and hope you don’t have to use them. Lock outs and misplaced keys will never occur at a convenient time. To reduce your stress, prepare for the unexpected and save your cash for something far more fun than an emergency locksmith!
