Lock boxes for keys are generally grouped with realtors, however, almost anybody can take advantage of their benefits. With a lock box / key safe you can provide third parties with a combination, rather than providing multiple keys that may be used without your knowledge. Displaying your lockbox when expecting guests is safer than keys floating around to be used at random. Below we’ll cover new ways to use the boxes, and then go on to show some of our favorites.
As The Lock People ®, we hear interesting ways people use our products all the time. Some of our favorites are the inventive ways to use portable lock boxes, and we wanted to share these tips with our readers!
After one customer’s kid lost around 5 house keys, she decided to use a lock box to solve the problem! She had her kid choose a code easily remembered and they used the stored key when coming home from school, once the parents were home they would replace the lock in the box.
Another customer has a lock box that only has the key inside when she is at work or out of town, this allows her pet sitters to come in and retrieve food for her pups and take them out without handing over a copy to either multiple workers or a teenager.
Some people keep a spare in their yard locked away, which allows them to text the code/location of the box to either their neighbors or family in case of an emergency when a keyholder is nowhere near!
Other cases include giving the gardener a code for the gate/shed key, storing an extra car key in the garage locked up so it does not get lost, and many many more. Comment below with your creative way to use a Master Lock Portable Lock Box.
