    No one has ever heard of duct tape to hide a spare key? Or to camo-flage one under the hood? An as for ways to defeat most locks require ingenuity and the proper use of physics. For example air pressure, leverage, tension etc... cork-screw for (those pesky almost impossible smooth cylinder style door locks. Think old school. And well of course the proper tools. But of course the spare key would be a lot smaller and easier in the first place. lol. Or leave it unlocked because both would be less expensive than replacing the broken window.

    How about a (magnetic) reed switch (in parallel with the electric door switch) inside the windshield (windscreen) and a magnet hidden anywhere on the outside of the vehicle (to activate the reed switch)?

    I don't get the way the knot is being made but, it doesn't matter, my car doesn't have a post-style door lock. It is a clever solution for those who do though.

    You may hide a spare key in a hidden place in the fender behind the tyre. Fix it with a magnet wallet. Tell no one. except when you need it.

    Here's my thoughts if anyone really cares. First time you use one of those magnetic key boxes your gonna loose it cause the magnets on them suck they wouldn't hold a fart in a cup with the cup upside down and it sitting on top. I believe tyre is supposed to be tire. And locks are only good for keeping the honest ppl honest because if a thief wants something from your car etc. he or she is going to bust out a window and grab anything of their liking.

    Well since you're being pedantic, "tyre" is actually the proper English spelling of the word, as opposed to the bastardised US version to which you're confined. Try broadening your horizons beyond your borders.

    Also while we're here, I believe "your" should be "you're", "loose" should be "lose", "cause" should be " 'cause" or "because" and you shouldn't start a sentence with "And". It's probably a good idea to make sure you're perfect yourself before you start criticising others.

    Oh rafmann, you missed so many more mistakes in that kid's too short

    practice of writing in English that I hesitate to go further with this rebuttal.
    First 3 words, "Here's", a contraction for "here is", denoting something singular, "my" is simply written correctly but how can you screw up a 2 letter word, moving on to word #3, "thoughts", a plural noun which is the object of the singular contraction heretofore mentioned in a transitive verb type sentence with the hidden verb being "is". 2nd sentence, you're correct on the contraction for "you are", "gonna" is not a word in the English language, "going to" is the proper form of the verb, and you caught the loose/lose and the cause/because vernaculars also, and I cannot even admit to the use of a verb to "draw liquid up through a straw" to describe the strength or quality of the magnets used on these key boxes. Finally, the analogy that "they wouldn't hold a fart in a cup with the cup upside down and it sitting on top" is probably correct if it is used in conjunction with an English comprehension level of a chimpanzee or "I ain't nevah had no reel book larnin' when I were growin' up" but, in all sincerity, I don't believe that our friend Mr. ClintW7 would fit either category for lack of qualifications for both. ....... You can see many more grammatical errors coming up but it's starting to bore me trying to find something of value in his writings so I will let the reader do the looking. To adhere to the "Nice Comment" policy, I will say that I have written this in a positive manner in an attempt to educate one of our young, possibly "future leaders" to a better form of diction. Finally, the word "bust" immediately conjured up a vivid image of ....... Dolly Parton in my mind. I don't understand the connection though .....

    Okay first I never thought I was perfect. Yes in my country tyre is spelled tire. Just to let you know there is only one perfect being and that is "Jesus Christ!"
    I didn't realize that I was back in English class, I was just stating my opinion like everyone else.

    Actually I've used those magnetic boxes for years and NEVER had one fall off, even from my work truck. They work fine and if you put it on top of a flat metal surface it won't fall off.

    Also, the spelling of tyre is probably correct for his/her native country.

    Ur are right in general..funny reply thu..thx

    Misleading: Still waiting for the part where you insert the nylon cord into the lock. . . .and waiting. . . . .and waiting. . . .

    Hey, by now y'all should have seen that this is a trick photo. Look closely, there is another person inside the vehicle with a white string just waiting until the guy out here starts to pull, then that other person will pull the same way on the inside on the electric button until ..... Presto, lock opens. Did I miss anything??


    Here's how to do it in 10 seconds;

    1 - Get out your wallet

    2 - Remove the spare key from your wallet

    3 - Open the door

    Seriously... spend the $2 and get a spare set of both car and house keys made. Cut them down to small size with a dremel or cut off wheel so they slip easily into a pocket in your wallet. These can also be hidden on your car or around your home.

    For those with fob-only(HAH!) doors - there are a few ways to make or buy cheap copies to open your door. About the "HAH!" - many car makers still install a keyed lock on your car door. They just hide the key-hole under a plastic fairing(minus the hole to access the key slot) that fits over door handle.

    Just don`t lose your wallet! We lost our fob and our second car key,but we got a regular spare key that will open the door and turn on the inside electrical (it won`t start the car). But at least it will get you in the car.

    My car only opens with a fob. Getting a spare costs a lot of money. It came with two fobs. It wears out after awhile. So when you are using your second one start saving for a new one. I priced it at $150. Not like the old days when $2 covered a new key. I also don't have any locks, either on the door or handle. It is all done by the fob and the locks are inside the door frame.

    Every car, even luxury cars, that don't have a visible key slot are still required to have a key slot as a failsafe in case of electrical failures. Chances are, the slot is being covered by a piece of trim on your door handle. Look up your make and model in google along with "manual entry" Figure that out, then go to your local ACE or whatever hardware store you have in your town and request a non chipped spare be made of your physical key. Should only cost 3 bucks. If your car didn't come with a physical key then you need to making some phone calls. Because someone at the dealership is going to be in BIG trouble.

    If you don't have a spare, you can make an "original" and make all spares from the original master. But you will need your VIN off of your registration, they may even ask to see the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or show other proof of ownership if you bought it from the dealer. This goes for any vehicle with a VIN.

    If you're talking about your fob buttons eventually failing to lock/unlock, you can easily fix it without replacing. Just open the fob up and slip a small sliver of paper or foil folded several times between the button and the part of the circuit board that activates the button that won't work anymore!

    The batteries in the fobs are easily replaceable for less than $10, it is much smarter than buying a new fob for over $100. They do not wear out, but if you submerge in water they will stop working for a while, but generally if you let them dry out and use a new battery they will continue to work for twenty years or more.
