The thing we ignore is the need of spare key only to realize it when you might have lost your key, shut the door without taking the key. In the end you’ll be going to the key maker to get a new key or you end up breaking the door resulting in more damage. It only makes sense to have a spare key somewhere outside the house. The problem is that the spare key should be well hidden so that no one else can trespass your house using that key. Born Realist has compiled some interesting ideas to hide your spare key.

10. Birdhouse

Birdhouses as you know are for birds and can be placed in between trees. The simple idea is to create space in the birdhouse to hide your spare keys. No one would ever think of looking there and your property will remain safe in your absence.

9. Car License Plate

Is there an old car or trailer parked in your house that you never really use anymore? Hide the key behind that car’s number plate. Just make sure to remove the key before taking the car out for a ride or selling it.

8. Brick

If you have a boundary wall made of bricks surrounding your house, take a brick from the wall and make a hole inside to hide the key. Place the brick back leaving some mark to remember where you placed it.

7. Fake Drain Cap

Take a resealable plastic container along with a drain cap. Take the spare key and put it in the plastic container and crew it to the drain cap. Bury the drain cap leaving the drain cap visible. Now one could think of a spare key being inside a drain cap.

6. Fake Faucet Head

Similar to the fake drain cap, hide the key in a container, screw it to fake faucet burying it in gravel leaving faucet visible.

5. Fake Sprinkler

Take magnets and glue them to the door knockers back and put the door knocker on the metal door, there should be enough room behind door knocker to hide your spare key.

Take hot glue gun and use it to create a large mound of poop shape and let it dry. After drying use some brown paint to cover it. Take a plastic container and put a spare key in it. Glue the container to fake poop and bury it in the ground. There’s no way anyone would be suspicious about that at all and your key would remain safe as long as you want it to be.

2. Stone

This is the same trick as before using the plastic container, you can also use a pine cone and leaf that might look like it fell on your garden’s ground.

1. Fake Outside Socket Cover
