Want to leave a spare house key for a house sitter, your kids or yourself?
Make sure to avoid the most obvious hiding spots potential burglars are likely to check.
Here are some of the worst and best places to put a spare:
Worst Hiding Spots
Under your welcome mat.
Under a potted plant.
Atop the door frame.
In your mailbox.
Best Hiding Spots
In a faux rock that looks real and blends in.
Under a loose walkway brick.
Inside your grill or a children’s yard toy.
Under the leg of a patio chair.
But beware: Even well-hidden spare keys are no substitute for a home security system.
