117. Bright Idea: Hidden Key Safe January 4, 2007

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Product.

I was cleaning out a drawer today, and I came across the instruction booklet for Acesspoint’s Stor-a-Key.

One year ago: I had been annoyed by several locksmith visits (at $100/pop) after locking ourselves out of our condo, but I then found this little bugger.

Since then: I hide a spare key on a different floor of my building, tucked neatly away thanks to the super-strong magnet found on one side. The programmable combination lock adds extra security and peace of mind knowing that I am the only one that is ever going to be using that key.

Buy it HERE (Amazon).

So, I called the friendly and quiet 24-hour locksmith, who came, but then had so much trouble with our lock, he had to drill and destroy it to get it open.

I hope to never see that man again.
