Genius DIY Shows How You Can Hide Your Spare Key Without Anyone Ever Finding It

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.

Here is what you need!

Your key, spray oil, polystyrene cups, rubber glove, water concrete sealer, plastic wrap, a paint brush, stirring stick and concrete mix.

Now spray the plastic wrap and put the key on top.

This will ensure it doesn’t get stuck in the concrete.

Now mix concrete and give it the form of a rock-like lump of mass.

Now put your lump on they key and press it. Add bumps on your rock it to make it look convincing.

Nice looking rock you got there. Now take your key out after a day of letting it dry and then finally seal it.

The key fits nicely inside the rock.

Find a good spot for your spare key protector and let it remain there.

Now you won’t have to worry about getting yourself locked out of the house!
