Where to hide the spare key?

Where is the best place to hide a spare key to the trailer?

Wherever that is, I wouldn't post it in a public forum. :-)

Be creative. It may not even need to be the trailer...

I know where I put mine, but I am not telling.

We keep a set in the tow vehicle. It has the keypad on the driver door to unlock it.

How about behind the black drain cap? That's got to be the last place anyone would want to look.

I wear it on a necklace chain, always with me. Use the spare template, lighter than the original style.

Speaking purely in generalities…

People have a bad habit of hiding a spare key where it's easy to get to. Understandably so, because when you've locked yourself out you're already frustrated and a spare key that's hard to get to only adds to the frustration factor.

BUT, the harder it is for you to get to, the harder it will be for some vile miscreant to get to as well.

Probably the least accessible place is on the roof. You would need to borrow a ladder to get to the key. Which doesn't exactly make it desirable since you may not have a ladder handy when you need the key.

So, in keeping with the inaccessibility theme but in a place that you don't need special equipment, the next choice is to duct-tape it to the belly pan near the axles, right on the trailer's centerline so it's just as hard to reach from either side.

Since my Interstate isn't even a trailer and therefore has no belly pan, it's not like I'm revealing MY secret!

Where do you order lighter spares? I only have the originals.

Re: Console Vault (at Costco)

Just curious, has anyone ever seen one of these up close? Evidently, FBI and law enforcement use them to store their weapons in their vehicles:

Sounds sturdy, but kind of expensive...

Yes, I've seen many different kinds of auto vaults. I work law enforcement conventions a few times a year. All their toys are expensive....and cool.

Great idea. Until you leave the key for it in the trailer.
