Place to hide your keys/external lockbox options?
 
Does anyone have any clever tricks for hiding your keys when you go on a run or to the beach? A number combination lockbox would be best, but I don't know where one would even go.

Don't tell anybody, but underneath your drivers seat is a really cool hiding spot. It is hidden with a cover that you can pry up with your fingers. Bigger than you would expect, and totally covert. You reach it easily from the back seat.

Our little secret.

Drill a hole in a valet key, put the license plate bolt through it, and reinstall plate. :thumbsup:

Let me know where you are going.LOL If the FOB is attached to the vehicle then the doors will open and the engine would start.

I did mention valet key. That is a FOBless key right? And I didn't say I did this. :lol:

The point of what I'm asking is so that you can lock the vehicle, leave the key somewhere secure or at least discreet, and then still be able to get back into the vehicle...

Magnetic hide-a-key has works pretty well.

You put your key inside and stick it to any steel part of the frame.

Get them at wall mart or car washes.

Act like you are tying your shoe when you put it on : >)

If you lock the doors, how would you get in to get to that drivers seat.
On many models, that thing is chock full of connectors and stuff.

I you have the FOB in which I'm sure you do :rolleyes: , your only real option is remove all your keys via quick disconnect, leave all your keys excluding your key fob in the Jeep, then just buy a safety pin and secure it to your shorts ,don't just put in your pocket :eek: You will loose it :eek::eek:,, Trust me that will be your best bet !

There's alway the option to just take the valet key (Hide it or take it with you) and remove the battery out of your fob and and you can leave your fob with all your keys with the exception of your valet key

Good Luck!:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
