Placing a key outside is one of the most difficult ordeals of one’s life. Sure you want to have an extra option lying outside where you want it in case you get locked outside with no key. But you also don’t want it to be found by the neighborhood burglar who is always peeping around to see if he can find a way into some poor victim’s house. So, there have to be certain trade-offs in both security and utility when that damned key is to be placed outside. Even if we place it somewhere safe where no one can ever find it, we are always worrying about it and thinking whether it has been located or not. We end up replacing the appropriately selected place with an impressive secure vault that even we won’t be able to access in times of crisis. Paradox, right? But, with this cool DIY trick you can make sure that the key can only be found by the right person only!

This process involves hiding it under a rock, but you don’t worry; it will only dislodge when you want it to. You can also hide it away somewhere the thief isn’t supposed to be looking. So, let’s get started with this project.

    Wow, this would be assuming that no one guesses you put the key under or in the rock. Problem is you have just put a mold for the key. An assumed thief can make a key from the mold, put the original key back and no one is the wiser. Then you are left wondering how someone got into your home with the copied key still on the thief keyring.
