Lock firmspot­lights key dan­gers

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

RE­SEARCH com­mis­sioned by key safe spe­cial­ist, Mas­ter Lock, has found that house­holds are leav­ing them­selves at risk by un­der­valu­ing their spare keys.

A sur­vey of 1,000 home­own­ers found that around half keep spare keys with peo­ple who do not live with them. One in 50 of those asked con­tin­ues to hide their spare keys out­side in in­se­cure lo­ca­tions, such as un­der door mats, bins and even rocks.

One in 20 said they had been a vic­tim of crime be­cause of poor key man­age­ment.

Andy Cul­hane, of Mas­ter Lock UK, says: “Poor key man­age­ment could leave both you and your loved ones at risk.”

The sur­vey marks the launch of Mas­ter Lock’s ex­te­rior keysafe, www.mas­ter­lock.eu
