There is always a good reason why we manage to go through a house or apartment lockout even though we know what to do to avoid it. The problem begins with us being careless or desperate to keep control over all things we need to do and end up losing control over the most significant part of our lives: security. As long as there are conventional door locks at home, we ought to keep our keys safe and well-protected.
If we had electronic security door locks, we'd be obliged to ensure our personal codes remain secret. The difference among codes and keys is that the former ones change easily while the latter ones would need a procedure and in the meantime our house will be at stake. The worse news is that problems related to keys do not stop here. Losing the keys is one way of looking at issues but not the only one.
These tiny keys offer great security. They lock our doors or make the lock open. They secure our drawers and give us privacy in some rooms. They are basic tools but still neglected. The truth is that we can keep control over some issues but not all of them. When one's purse is stolen along with the house keys, it's really not our fault but the security problems will begin right away. In such cases, key change is a must and the lock must be rekeyed and the key changed as quickly as possible.
With that said, we do have control over some things but keys still get lost or destroyed. In some cases, the keys become the bad guys and our children become the victims and all because we fail to see the importance of keys and understand that they are not toys. Kids can be seriously hurt if we let them play with keys. They might be injured or hide the keys which will keep us from getting to work on time or force us to replace them. How smart do you think is leaving the transponder key in the car when your six year old son has access to the vehicle? Accidents do happen but we can prevent them. Keys need control! So, next time you decide to give your keys to people, who are not exactly close friends, consider the hazards and proceed with lock rekey if you have already gave them away.
