Should You Leave Your Key In The Lock?

Where Should I Leave My Car Keys?

It is easy to leave your keys on the inside of your lock when you go home at night. On the one hand, there’s a chance that no one will be able to insert a lock pick if there’s a key inside the lock, on the other hand, is leaving your house key in your lock dangerous? Here’s the truth of it. 

Keeping The Keys Out Of Sight

By leaving your keys in your door overnight you risk making things easier for anyone trying to break in. If your door has glass panes or if you have windows next to the door and your keys are visible from the outside, then leaving the keys in the door is the equivalent of advertising free entry to anyone with a thought about getting in. 

Having a letterbox or dog flap in your door provides the opportunity for someone to gain access to your house keys with the aid of a coat hanger. 

If your keys are out of sight and there is no way to access them from the inside, this will not be a problem for you. 

Consider Emergencies When Leaving Your Key in the Lock

If something happens inside the home and the emergency services need to gain entry, having a key in the door could prove a hindrance. On the other hand, if you need to make a quick exit from the home you know where your keys are. 

It is difficult to get a key inside a lock if there is another key already inside. Anyone with a key may have trouble getting in.
