It is often easier to keep a spare key of your home in a hiding spot near your home, whether it’s under a rock or just to the side of a window. This is a safety hazard, as anyone can guess, and everyone uses it. Rather keep a spare in your purse or car.
Sometimes it is easy to focus on the lock itself, and not the larger mechanism behind it. Pay attention to your door hinges, oil them often, and know that not paying attention to your door’s hinges are just as bad as not looking after your locks. Both pose a hazard to your safety, which is the most important thing to us.
