Your personal vehicle is likely the most expensive tool you own and/or operate on a daily basis.  Most of us have experienced that stomach-twisting feeling of digging around frantically in our pockets or purses for keys that have just “vanished”.

If this happens to you, don’t panic.  The Murdale True Value Lockshop is equipped to replace car and motorcycle keys for most vehicles on the road today.  In fact, Murdale True Value Lockshop stocks more keys for more automobiles and motorcycles than any other lock and key dealer in Southern Illinois.

Here are some tips you can use to avoid losing your car keys.

  1. Dedicate a hook or dish in your home specifically for keeping your keys – and use it.
  2. Attach a large keychain, such as a lanyard or fluffy plush, to make your keys easier to find in your bag.
  3. If the last thing you do before you leave the house is turn off the lights, install a magnet behind your light switch plate and stick your keys to it.
  4. If you go swimming often, attach a cork keyring to your keys, and they will float if they become separated from you.y.

Happy driving!
