When do we lose our car keys?

One of the things people do is when getting groceries, they leave their keys on the seat or, what’s worse, in the trunk, which is a big mistake. Never do that! When you out your shopping bags on top of your keys, you will forget about them, you won't see them and you will close the trunk and you will be stuck! A good set of bulky keychains can be useful in this case because you will always know where they are. They can prove to be especially useful in a situation where you accidentally drop your keys; the sound of your bulky or just a regular keychain with few keys will be louder than just one key. But in any event, to prevent car lockouts, it is always useful to have emergency locksmith service’s number saved on your phone, just in case!
