It's all about the odds!

Less the kid, that is exactly how we handle it too. Granted, someone motivated enough can get into whatever they want ... but hiding our spare TT and TV keys deep within a combo-locked storage hatch is a degree of security with which we are comfortable - and we don't need a key to get to the key(s). Kinda like our storage lot - it is a keyed/camera/well-lit lot within a compound where there are 24-hour guards who require touching the ID pass card before granting entry. Neither will stop those fully motivated from breaking and entering and stealing, but it sure reduces the size of the population who would! It's all about the odds AND the quality of your insurance

My expedition has a combination lock so I keep trailer keys in it and an extra expedition key in the trailer.

I keep a set on my regular keychain, a set in my glove compartment, and a set hidden in an over size hide a key box. Plus my wife carries a set. Lol!

The above thread has a website link where I got hatch cyclinder locks that are keyed to the trailer's factory Global Link door key. So one key opens everything and it's nice to get rid of the universal 751 that everyone has. ThreeButchers helped me figure out which one I needed if I recall.
That's PERFECT! Thank you!!

FWIW, when I lost the keys to our hybrid and had another set made, the locksmith had a heck of a time finding the proper key blanks (yes, I went to a real locksmith, not the kid at the hardware store! ). He found that the key blanks for "The Club" steering wheel lock were the right ones, just a little too long. It was no problem for him to grind it down to the right length.

Just have to share ... since we're discussing security/theft/locks-and-keys! We JUST finalized securing our new 6-v Trojan T-145 batteries (click to see pic) and dual-propane tanks with shackles. Again, just a deterrent - won't stop someone REALLY motivated but probably will cause them to look elsewhere for easier targets.

BTW, we also lock-down our Electrical Management System and 2 generators when being used.

Just be sure NOT to do what a customer did years ago. He had a small accident with his pick up. Preparing to replace the front grille , I opened the hood, with the INTERIOR hood release. There, high up on the firewall, behind the engine, was his spare key in a magnetic key holder !!! Yes, no thief could find the spare key, but the owner could not access it if his truck was locked. I always think of this when someone mentions hiding a spare key.

Hope you don't put it where road grime will get to it...........you might not able to unlock it. It should be mounted inside a rainproof bag. It never hurts to have a spare key around in emergencies.
