One of the top most often lost objects is keys. Many of us used to wonder: ‘Where the hell I lost my keys? What am I supposed to do?”. Lost keys mean trouble, additional expenses and unnecessary stress. How to avoid such a situation?
Define a place
Set up one place in a house where you place the keys. It should be handy, so you can leave them easily when carrying heavy shopping. A hook for keys is a perfect solution.
Use a lanyard
Attach a colorful lanyard to your keys. You’ll catch a sight of them quicker than a small gray key blending into the surroundings. With a lanyard it’s also easier to reach for the keys from a bag.
Separate bunches of keys
Do not keep all keys together. You don’t want to lose car keys and house keys at once, right?
Protect before losing
Attach small notiOne tracker to your keys. If you lose them, you’ll see on a map the recent place you had them with you. notiOne looks like a keychain: it’s small, light and does not require charging – the battery lasts a year. See how notiOne works and how to track objects with it.
Have a spare copy
Make a spare copy of your keys and give it to a trusted person. It won’t protect you from losing them but it will surely save your nerves in case you will.
Last but not least…
Never describe your keys with an address and personal data. It is risky to add a phone number as well. In the case of losing them, a slippery thief will surely know how to make use of such information.
